Nasa camera captures 'fireball' over Texas

Help

Video footage of a "fireball" flashing in the sky over Texas has been captured by a Nasa camera.

The camera picked up the flash from Nasa's Meteoroid Environment Office in New Mexico. It was reported to have been seen from as far away as Houston and Louisiana.

Nasa believes that a meteor entered Earth's atmosphere somewhere between Dallas and Houston. It has tracked fragments of it which fell to Earth north of Houston.
