Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration:4 seconds
A small, single fireball in the sky at an indeterminate altitude.

I was waiting for a bus when I heard what seemed to be some sort of combustion in the sky. I looked to see what appeared to be a small, white fireball streaking a bit in the sky. It burned out within 3 or 4 seconds. I looked closely to determine any residual smoke, I saw none. I scanned the area at hand, a suburban street, for nearby power lines and found none. The fireball was an isolated incident in the sky, accompanied by no other perceptable phenomenea. The duration of the event and the nature of the fireball made it difficult to perceive an altitude.
