The reason for the question mark here is that we're still not sure what the thing was. Called a "fireball" and recorded by a videographer covering a footrace, the object that streaked across the Texas sky looked a lot like a meteor and was accompanied by a sonic boom.
What we do know, according to the U.S. Strategic Command, is that it wasn't the remains of satellites that collided in orbit last week. A spokeswoman from the command said, "It's possible it was some kind of natural phenomenon - maybe a meteor."
It certainly looked like that to me. I've seen a few of those before, though rarely that bright and never in the daytime. What do you think it was?
