Observer
NameDoris M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis object was observed and photographed around 2 am over San Antonio TX (KSAT.com news 7/19/20). Next sighting reported is over Zaragosa, Coahuila Mexico where several persons took videos of the "bolide" speeding thru the sky same night, before it crossed Hobbs, NM. At 1:15 am my neighbour and I were standing outside chatting when I noticed a fiery streak emerging from the SE horizon climbing vertically then gradually curving and heading in our direction. It sped directly over my house exposing us to the horrific inferno inside its very long tail. The objects round head was white glowing, the tail consistet of huge fiery chunks exploding into smaller chunks which then split until they disappeared in the dark. The whole spectacle resembled a gigantic firework and lasted between two and three minutes right above our heads, there was no sound, just total silence instead.
