Meteor spotted as it falls near McAllen

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.
