Shooting Star?

I live in Garland, TX, a Northeastern suburb of Dallas County.

I was sitting in my patio, facing North. I sit out there and enjoy a cigar a couple of times a month.

It was approximately 8:00 P.M. and I had just taken a puff of my smoke and tilted my head back to exhale. As I did, I saw what I thought was a "shooting star", going North. I have seen meteors/shooting stars on many occasions and thought no different. I could distinctly make out "flames" on this and thought I had a great view of a meteorite streaking across the evening sky.

The "flames" diminished and I could see something that looked like a star, moving across the sky.

From my vantage point it looked like a star, except that it was moving. I then saw another "star" coming from the other direction, heading South. This object was perhaps a little brighter than the North-bound "shooting star".

The two star-looking objects came together and slowly faded out.

I do not believe they were stars. I called The National UFO Reporting Center immediately.

End of Report.
