Luis Mata-San Antonio, TX:
I was outside my southside home facing west, looking up at the night sky when I saw a what I thought was a plane traveling across the sky.  It looked like a white ball of light traveling across the sky at high rate of speed.  I knew it couldn't  be a jet because I have seen many jets fly across the night sky,  and this object had no underbelly strobe light flashing,  as most jets have.  This was about 9:00 pm -9:30pm,  approximately.  I got curious and started searching for any reports of this rare object sighting.  Please keep me posted.
I  am on the southside of san antonio and the object was traveling at a great rate of speed. Almost about the same rate of speed the space station was traveling when it went over san antonio's western sky.  The space station was visible from my roof top and it appeared as a white ball of light,  just like this object.  Only the space station was traveling from the nw skyies heading se.  I just happened to be outside looking up at the sky.
I normally look for Orion and this ball of light just happened to catch my attention.  These have been strange sightings that I have seen.  I didn't even know that we were going to get a meteor shower.
