The trajectory was upwards and the flash was a large bright red flame shaped object with a blueish halo and it had a tail and dissappeared into the sky or burnt up? It was much to quick to be an airplane and too large to be fireworks.

((NUFORC Note: Sighting also reported to Brian Vike, Director of HBCCUFO, in Houston, B.C., whose report also appears here. Please seen third report, as well. PD))

((NUFORC Note: One of several reports of apparently the same event seen over Texas. It is interesting that the event has not been reported from surrounding states, given that a bright meteor can be seen for hundreds of miles around. PD))
