It must have been big. I was 50 miles North of College Station traveling south and saw the part that appeared to drop straight down. People as far sought as San Antonio saw it while facing south as well. I have never heard of seeing a meteorite during the day. I only saw it for a few seconds before my view was blocked but it was pretty incredible.

Anonymous-San Marcos, TX:
It was around 11:50 and I was outside of San Marcos off of 21 by the airport. I was working in the field when I saw it fall straight down out of the sky. I was facing in the East direction and it looked like a white light blazing object.

I was heading East on Bee Cave Rd in Austin, Texas and witnessed a fireball go across the sky (pretty low) from left to right. Only lasted a couple seconds, but very bright.

I am in New Braunfels Texas and saw it as well. It dropped straight down and I swear I saw a green/ blue color, but my husband said he saw red. This was around 11:50 am as well. It looked so close!!
