My girlfriend and I were walking westward in a desert road next to Cemex and far east El Paso in the evening of St. Valentine Day when the largest meteor we had ever seen lit the sky on our left side. It was fast, but at a much slower speed and longer duration than the regular falling stars that I had previously seen. The meteor was moving westward. It was a magical evening!
