Initial Meteor Sighting Report-
25AUG2013 Denise Totah Lubbock Texas 5:00 a.m. 5 maybe 10 seconds west to east right to left I was facing west i thought it was a flash of lightning. I turned to look up and saw this big flash of light and it looked like it had 2 contrails at the end. I thought that maybe a plane had exploded, but there was no sound a little brighter than the moon it looked like 2 trails coming from it after it started disappearing I didn't get a picture, I just know that the flash was bright enough to make me look up to the sky as I thought it was lightning.

Thomas Ashcraft - Heliotown - New Mexico writes,
"Did anyone catch a large fireball on Aug 25 2013 at 0954:50 UT in the
west Texas- eastern New Mexico vicinity? (0354:50 am MDT / 0454:50 am CDT)
I caught a flash behind clouds which might have come from over the
horizon in which case this fireball would have been deeper into north
central Texas.
It should show on space fence radar for Texas observers. It made a 30
second radio reflection at 217 MHz and a two minute reflection on tv
forward scatter frequencies."

I saw something go across the sky and catch on fire and slow down to almost a stop as it seemingly entered our atmosphere.. then it shot across sky and seemed to disappear,,, never seen anything like that.
It was witnessed at 1:39 a.m. August 25, 2013 in Brazoria County Texas right outside of the town Angleton.
