Fireball Streaks Across Texas Night Sky

Posted by on December 10, 2012

What was it? An exploding alien craft? The opening bell of the Mayan apocalypse? The time-machine DeLorean returning from good old 1955?

Nope.

It was a meteor.

Again.

Here’s another shot of the meteor, taken from the actual NASA camera at their Meteoroid Environment Office in New Mexico. You can see it, just a quick flash, at the left:
