The fastest falling metour without a tail that was no common airplane!

At approximatly 7:15 pm, Thursday, Oct. 25th, I was driving in an easterly direction, in Arlington, Texas. More specific, I had just turned left onto Rosewood lane from Collins street.

The sky was at dusk, still with a lot of blue, and a mostly full moon was staring me in the face. All of a sudden, a bright "star-like" object, (much brighter than Venus), appeared at the top of my windshield, falling hard and moving fast toward the horizon.

I can assure you it was no airplane, for, to be honest, I'm smarter than that. I know when I see an airplane, and THIS was no airplane! This unidentified falling object moved too fast and the light did not "twinkle", or "blink".

It traveled from the top of my windshield to the horizon in a matter of 10 seconds, or so, keeping in mind I was on a residential street, not exceeding 15 miles per hour.

My raw impression, is that whatever this thing was, "IT" came from the atmosphere and hit the ground.
