|Meteor looking object, very bright. Visible only 2 seconds after which it vanished. Suspected meteor however it's trajectory was North to south.
At 7:02 am I was traveling on my way home on S Loop 289 heading east when I suddenly saw a bright light approximately the intensity of Landing lights on an aircraft. The light was at a 30 degree inclination, traveling North to south very quickly, covering a distance of 5 inches on my windshield in 1 second. It left no contrail, no exhaust trail or any heat variances visible against the sky which was beginning to light up due to the rising sun (not visible yet). The western sky was still a very dark blue/black. The object left a light trail, such as seen on meteors entering the atmosphere and disappeared as suddenly as it appeared which is why I suspect it is a meteor. However it was very bright for your usual meteors and left no trail in the sky whatsoever. Again there was a north south heading as well.
