Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2-3 sec.
I saw a fireball fall from the sky.

I saw a white fire ball come out of the sky at about an 80 degree angle. The fire ball was about as big as your finger nail with arm extended. This white ball had a tail following it. In the middle of the white ball was blue. Like the color of natural gas burning on your stove. I looked like a shooting star, but was too close to the earth and too big. I live in the northwest part of Houston. I was sitting in my garage, looking south- southwest when I saw it. I didn't see where it came from, it appeared and fell to the earth very fast. It dissapeared behind the house across the street. I've never seen something like that before. I thought it was a plane crash. Nothing on the news untill I heard your director on Art Bell's radio show last night.
