Did A Meteorite Hit In Texas Yesterday?!
Was informed by my Federal partners that Houston Air Traffic Control received reports from two aircrafts that they saw a meteorite west of McAllen. Where the exact point of impact is unknown. No reports of any damage in that area has been received. pic.twitter.com/x3MkpL0I4J

Yesterday evening, residents in Texas witnessed a blue streak fly through the sky and heard loud explosions. Multiple agencies took to Twitter to share the news.
There’s been reports of a possible meteorite this evening west of McAllen. One of the satellite tools we use is the Geostationary Lightning Mapper & it measures lightning as observed from space. GLM detected a signal at 523 PM with no storms around. No official confirmation yet. pic.twitter.com/1NKRZTZU9C
