A green fireball streaked across the Texas sky Wednesday night.  Sightings of the meteor flooded in from South Texas all the way to Oklahoma.

Central Texans reported the flash in the northwest sky around 8 p.m.  There were even reports of a sonic boom in other parts of the state.

“The greenish color indicates there may have been copper in the meteor,” said KVUE Chief Meteorologist Mark Murray.  It also could have been falling space junk.

There are no reports yet of the debris hitting the ground.
