What is the bright orange object, in Houstonís western sky tonight, around 7:00pm? I was taking a walk and saw it streaking towards the earth like a comet, only not as fast. Then it ceased to continue streaking downward, and the entire Ďdesigní of fireball with vertical streaks above it, started to fade in brightness and visibility.

At first I wondered if a plane was crashing, but there was no sound. Except for the color, I would have guessed it was a far-away jet, only it was heading directly downward. I came in the house to Google and find out what it is before it had disappeared entirely. I didnít find anything online. I wondered if there was a satellite or something due to fall to the ocean today. But then, it never finished falling before it started to fade.
