Texans report seeing meteor streaking across the sky Sunday night

Texans are talking about the Sunday night fireball they saw streaking across the sky just about sundown.

Reports came from an area as far west as Grand Prairie and far east as Louisiana, and from Oklahoma down to Austin.

Some people reported hearing a "boom" at the same time, suggesting it had exploded. ​Indications are it was a meteor.

The National Weather Service says it has nothing to do with the Perseid meteor shower which runs annually from July 17th to August 24th. "NASA Meteor Watch" says last night's meteor was "way too slow" and the "wrong direction of travel."​
