Texas Fireball Update

The sonic booms and streaking fireball caught on tape on Sunday February 15th during a Texas marathon was not debris from last weeks US and Russian satellites collision according to US officials.

The U.S. Strategic Command said there was no connection to the sightings and the collision of satellites almost 500 miles over Siberia.

“There is no correlation between the debris from that collision and those reports of re-entry,” said Maj. Regina Winchester, with STRATCOM.

No crash site has been reported and additional information from the big news sources is pretty crappy.

blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy posts a link to a National Weather Service post that previously unreported fireballs were seen over Kentucky on Friday night, along with explosions or sonic boom type noises, much like the Texas incident on Sunday. Why the major news sources haven’t tied these together, I’m not sure.

blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy also has posts with more information on the sighting and some great links, check it out.

Looks like we have a genuine Texas sized UFO mystery on our hands.
