I was driving to work this morning om I45 South at appr.
540am. I saw what I thought to be a falling star. It started out White and falling towards the skyline but soon turned to look like it was on fire as if an engine had burned out as it went down. Ellington Field, Hobby Airport are the only two strips I am aware of. I watched the news but have seen nothing reported. Space Junk? ? ? I don' t know, all I do think I know is that it did make it thru the atmosphere, maybe landed in the gulf, Galveston? ?
