SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — It wasn’t a Chinese spy balloon that caused people in South Texas to look skyward last night.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra sent out a tweet that the bright object streaking across the sky was in fact, a meteor.
He says that Houston Air Traffic Control alerted him that two aircraft spotted a meteor as it fell west of McAllen.
There’s been no word of any damage and the impact site isn’t known.
A meteor fell in Mission, Texas today around 5-5:30 pm, making a loud bang, shaking house in a 10 mile radius.
