Possible Houston TX Meteor Fireball 08OCT2011

Inquiry From An ELPALLSKY Reader:
From Anonymous-Houston, TX:
Last night me and my girlfriend were headed back from the annual Renfest in Magnolia, TX sometime between 9 and 11 pm, I couldn’t tell you what time exactly. While we were driving south west on a highway in Houston we were mid conversation when we both just stopped. I had stopped talking because the entire sky lit up bright blue twice in under a second. It was kind of like a camera flash. It really startled me.  I  looked over at her and she had the same confused look on her face. We had both seen it. The sky was kind of cloudy and we did hit some small patches of rain along the way but there was still a lot of clear sky. We didn’t see any lightning before that or after that until about 3 hours later when a thunderstorm rolled in. We had both agreed that it was WAY to bright and WAY to blue to be lightning. We didn’t see a fire ball or anything resembling one though. The rest of the drivers seemed to have see it to because when it happened a lot of people hit their brakes and a lot of people swerved a little. It was insanely bright. I’d love to know if anyone else saw it.
