Meteorite sighting 26 Jan 2011
I can confirm the sighting posted 26 Jan 2011. I was crossing the UT campus some time between 10:30-11pm and spotted it East-Northeast of my location.
I remember it being rather large in size and that I could distinctly see that it was starting to break apart into two pieces (even with my poor eyesight). It didn't seem to burn out until it was about 30 degrees from the horizon. It seemed to be traveling almost perpendicular to the horizon (straight down). I was wondering if maybe it was a satellite or large chunk of man-made space junk. From the other readers' comments it seems this thing came down somewhere just North of Huntsville, TX.
