On Saturday night, an unusually bright meteor shot across the Texas sky. The American Meteor Society received hundreds of reports of “an extremely bright green light that rivaled the brightness of the sun.”
Bill Cooke, the lead at Meteoroid Environments Office (NASA) estimates the meteor was at least four feet wide, weighed 2 tons and burned five times brighter than a full moon.
