Bright Light Over Early Evening Texas Skies Not A Meteor... 19FEB2011...

by: ELPALLSKY 19 FEB2011
Witnesses reporting in to ELPALLSKY of a bright light moving across Texas skies this evening likely DID NOT see a meteor/fireball, but an unusually bright pass of the ISS (International Space Station). With days getting longer now, the Station stays in sunlight longer than during winter when even bright illuminated ISS passes are relatively brief compared to their summer counterpart passes. Here are a couple inquiries to ELPALLSKY, a log of tonight's pass across Houston TX, and an ELPALLSKY camera capture of an ISS pass over El Paso TX last night 18FEB2011 at 6:56 pm MST. Enjoy!

From ELPALLSKY Chat...
Feb 19 2011, 7:48 PM Guest579 (guest): Hello. Do know if any meteor or satellite was visible over north houston today around 630 pm. It was very bright light traveling northeast and then it just fizzled out. It was large and not like any meteor I have ever seen. It was not blinking like an aircraft.

Email From Kathy In Cal... Hi, I happened across your website this morning,  and yes I did see the entire sky south of me light up a neon green. It was approximately 10:30pm. I did do a search when I got home from work around 11pm on google, but couldn't find anything.
Email From Pedro C... My brother at around 11pm or 12 am saw this meteor as it approached and kept staring at it since all he saw in the distant sky was a blueish white ball. Then as it came above him the bright light illuminated the whole night sky and for about 1- 2 seconds, the night was now day. As quick as it had came it left and he couldn't believe his eyes. If you want to know more just e- mail me at (contact email archived). By the way, my family has decided to call it Hugo's Meteor in honor of him being the only one who saw it approaching from the distance. From ELPALLSKY...Congratulations Hugo!

ANOTHER?...YES! ANOTHER Fireball Bolide Italia 18FEB2011...

The Italians are certainly being shown great favor by the Meteor Gods...
The Italian Meteor and TLE Network has captured spectacular video of yet another bright fiery bolide descending through Italy's little piece of the atmosphere. This event (pictured below) lit up the sky over Ferrara at 18:23:42 UTC 18FEB2011. This is the IMTN's fourth bolide capture in a 10 day period...one each on the 8th, 10th, 12th, and now today the 18th. By Far, the highlight of this recent activity came at 23:24 UTC on the 8th (article)...http://elpasoallsky.blogspot.com/2011/02/major-breaking-meteor-newssuperbolide.html
