Feb. 1, 2012
WFAA received more than 200 reports Wednesday night from people who said they saw what appeared to be a meteor streaking across the North Texas
sky shortly after 8 o'clock. Many people also said they heard what sounded like a sonic boom (or booms) associated with the fireball
, which was apparently witnessed all the way from San Antonio to Oklahoma City.
The Federal Aviation Administration told TV station KWTX in Waco that it was a meteor.
