This was not a space craft or a plane. It looked like a comet with a tail that expanded out from the ball. It was visible in the southern sky for 2 to 3 minutes over the Dallas, Texas, area. It eventually went out of site.

I sent this message to a local TV station but did not get a response.

Around 12:40 to 12:45PM today, I saw what looked like a Meteor or Comet in the southern sky. It was visible for 2 to 3 minutes. Do you all know what it was? It defiantly was not a plane.

Do you know what this was? Thank You, Jeff PS I have seen the space shuttle come over our area 2 times. The smoke trail that it left was visible in the sky for several minutes. The object I saw yesterday tail diapered a few seconds after it had reached any certain point in the sky. The farther it went the less of the tail I saw. Eventually as went went farther away you could just see a round light. I would think that it was very high or in a high orbit. It may have been a meteor but all the falling stars that I have seen only last a second or 2.

I think it was some kind of a celestial body and not a spacecraft of some kind. I really would like to know what it was.

((NUFORC Note: Possibly a high-altitude a/c, with a contrail behind it? PD))
