    Last night (04:05:09 August 2 UTC) there was a very bright fireball
    event over central Texas.  I was fortunate enough to see it myself!
    
    Some sourse has told a local TV station that it may have been a
    14-year-old Cosmos rocket.  I'm not sure which object they are
    considering, but I'm sure it was a natural meteor.  But just to
    cover bases, might there have been a space-junk re-entry possibly
    visible over central Texas last night, northbound?
