Additional Eyewitnesses Needed On This Daylight Event !!
Email From:Reagan R.- Lufkin, TX
10/1/2011 at 8:25 a.m., south of Diboll and north of Corrigan, TX. Sighted while driving south on Highway 59. Bluish white with a slight green with distinct tail moving east to west. Became visible a little before the 11 o'clock position and began to diminish by the 2 o'clock position. Tail began to diminish and object seemed to give off or break into orange pieces and disappear. If anything made it to the ground it would most likely be in heavily forested area. Not having witnessed anything in the daytime like this before (nor any at night that were anywhere near this big or bright) it seemed very low in the sky. Not being more experienced at estimating these things it seemed to be only a few thousand feet away and was extremely bright. Witnessed by myself, my wife and couple in vehicle following us.
W.P.-Southwest LA 8:00-9:00am CDT
I saw an orange fireball with a long tailed, bright blue streak traveling through the sky, from east to west. Just before, it passed from my range of vision, over the horizon, it broke into two parts. Each part became an individual fireball and both appeared to burn out during their descension. I was facing southwest, alone in my deer stand, when I initially saw the fireball appear in the west.
