UFOs over Houston skies in July 2022?
Did someone let some of the aliens from the Locktopia Escape Room Houston The Gateway game?
Houston TV reports say that around 10:30pm, Sunday July 24, 2022, bright lights were over the Texas skies.
KPRC 2 says that more than 200 Texans notified the American Meteor Society (AMS) that they saw fireballs above. Reports came in from Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio and Corpus Christi.
KHOU 11 wrote that three active meteor showers could be the explanation…that is if you don’t believe one of our escape room players let something out here from another dimension!
Right now the three showers are the Southern Delta Aquariids, the Alpha Capricornids and the Perseids.
Experts believe these were pieces falling to Earth.
“If you saw it pass overhead as opposed to in the distance, that makes you more likely to be under one and have one fall on you,” Dr. Carolyn Sumners of the Houston Museum of Natural Science told channel 11. “Chances are very unlikely there’s a meteorite in your front yard. But there could easily be a meteorite in somebody’s front yard. We saw a meteoroid becoming a meteor.”
The AMS wrote “The initial computer generated trajectory shows that this fireball entered the atmosphere over Cistern, Texas and its flight ended near Sunset Valley, just a few miles southwest of Austin. Several witnesses near the flight path reported hearing a delayed sonic boom, indicating that this fireball may have survived down to the lower atmosphere. Updated information indicates that this fireball was a member of the alpha Capricornid meteor shower, which is a known producer of bright fireballs. If this is true then the chances of finding any meteorites on the ground are essentially nil as meteors from this source are too fragile to survive their flight through the atmosphere.”
The Not-For-Profit group added, “A fireball is a meteor that is larger and brighter than normal. Most meteors are only the size of tiny pebbles. A meteor the size of a softball can produce light equivalent to the full moon for a short instant. This particular fireball was probably the size of a small car prior to entering the atmosphere.”
