Location: Austin, TX
|There was no smoke or trailing from the fireball so it wasn't a rocket or metor.
I was waiting for a traffic light change at the intersection of Hwy 183 & 71, as I was heading South on 183. I saw a whitish blue fireball apx 160 degrees above. It became bright white then disappared. I thought it was a sky rocket because it was gaining height and heading from east to west from the corner of the airport. I did not see an object or smoke trail.
