Dashcam Captures Something 'Very Bright and Slightly Green in Color' Streaking Across Nighttime Sky

"Brought everyone in our neighborhood outside."

A possible meteor was spotted over Texas about 8:45 p.m. Saturday, according "countless phone calls, emails and Twitter reports" that came into San Antonio's WOAI-TV.

The American Meteor Society received over 100 reports of a meteor sighting in the San Antonio-New Braunfels area on Saturday, the station added.

A video of the possible meteor was posted to YouTube Saturday. The description of the clip, which has no audio, reads: "Driving west on Hausman road in San Antonio TX, we captured this on our car's dash camera. Note, time clock on video is off by an hour due to recent daylight savings time change, this happened at about 8:43-44 PM (or 20:43-44, not 21:##). Not sure what this was, but it was very bright and slightly green in color to our eyes."

Some witnesses described seeing two objects and a greenish-blue tail — likely from the meteor breaking apart, KXAN-TV in Austin reported.

Reports of the meteor came from across the state, KXAN added. The Maverick Co. Sheriff’s Department reported the ground shaking due to a meteor landing at about 8:45 p.m., the station noted, citing the National Weather Service.
