Just saw what has to be a meteor Impact.

Am outside taking my dogs out when. I happened to see what was unmistakably a meteor SSW of me no more 15 - 20 miles of my location between Houston and Galveston.

It came down at an apparent angle that was approximately 45°-50° and it intersected the horizon perhaps a second to a second and a half of when it came into my field of view.

It seemed to be a classic bolide in that I'd had a distinct green color to the main body; it had an orange tail.

There was no flash when it hit so it could have come down in the gulf and may not have any visible evidence of impact.

A friend of mine is with me and witnessed the event as well.

It's probably comet Swan.
I'd drive really fast the other way before the tsunami hits bro.

If there was no flash when it "hit" then it didn't hit. That would be true even if it hit in water.

Any chance it was something more terrestrial? (ahem...Green Lady)

There are meteor impact trackers on the Internet. If it managed to hit before it turned completely to dust, maybe you can find it on one of those sites. It may take a couple of days for the data to show up, though. Looks like there was a big sighting (and possible impact) in Indiana / Ohio last week.
