If the recent reports coming from the official are to be believed then there is no one or two or three people, but hundreds of Texans are reporting of seeing a massive fireball in the sky.

Following are the posts of several of such people on their online accounts, which mentions that they have seen a massive bright ball of light streaking across the nighttime sky. A majority of the claims is coming from the people from the Dallas-Fort Worth area that is located towards the west to Abilene and south to Waco, Austin, San Antonia and Houston.

All of them have said that they have seen a white fireball at about 9 p. m. on Saturday. Though most of the people say that they saw one, there are a few of them in the group who said that they saw a second smaller flash too.

He explained that there are thousands of meteors that pass across the Earth's atmosphere daily, there is a possibility that a bright meteor has recently passed through.
