Texas: Yellow-Green Ball Of Fire Spotted In North Texas Sky


By Frank Heinz, NBCDFW – “A yellow-green ball of fire seen streaking through the morning Texas sky is not a harbinger of the end of days, a la the Mayan calendar … it was just a meteor.

Hundreds of reports were received this morning from North Texans who spotted the yellow-green meteor streaking across the sky. On our Facebook page, NBC 5 readers recalled the sighting as ‘amazing’ or  ‘beautiful’ while others claimed it was the early arrival of Santa Claus, the end of the world … or, as one reader alleged, himself flying around in his Iron Man suit.

The meteor was seen at about 6:43 a.m. Central Time. NASA said Friday afternoon the meteor is likely a fragment from an asteroid belt and not associated with the Geminid meteor shower which will peak Dec. 13-15.

The National Weather Service said reports of the sighting were received from as far south as Houston and east into Louisiana.  The American Meteor Society has been plotting reports of the sighting on their website, which you can see here.” Read more.
