Hundreds of Texans report seeing fireball in sky

AUSTIN (AP) -  Hundreds of Texans are giving online accounts of seeing a massive bright ball of light streak across the nighttime sky.

The Austin American-Statesman reports people from the Dallas-Fort Worth area west to Abilene and south to Waco, Austin, San Antonio and Houston say they saw the white fireball at about 9 p.m. Saturday. Most people say they saw one, but a few say they saw a second smaller flash.

The society says thousands of meteors pass across the Earth's atmosphere daily, but most occur over uninhabited areas. Sometimes they occur during daylight hours.
