On Thursday 11/15 night 9:22ish I was outside walking the dog. The whole sky lit up bright green. I looked up and observed still glowing pieces moving northeast in the direction of Sisterdale and Fredericksburg. From my perspective the flash was directly overhead! I live in Boerne, TX
Oh I forgot to mention that about 20 to 30 seconds after the flash I heard 2 faint but distinct booms.
I saw something like this on Tuesday the 13th approx 1230a. I was on a road trip but think I was around Amarillo. I assumed it was a meteor.
