Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 seconds
Saw a glowing fireball plunge through the sky towards earth.

I witnessed this on my way to work at approximately 6:40 Monday morning. In the sky to the north I saw a huge fireball flying through the sky headed downwards. I assumed at the time that it was only a meteor entering the atmosphere(what with leonid and all), but have seen footage of an object identical to mine, and anlysis of the footage of this other object said it could not have been a meteor. I am an IT professional w/ a very prestigous Global company, and have never seen or reported anything of this nature before.
