Location: Garland, TX
|Setting: At home, inside my house, all windows and doors closed.
Temp outside in 50s. Low this morning about 45 deg F. Predicted high about 75 deg F. House is well insulated; normally cannot hear aircraft unless they are low and close.
Time about 10:25 am CST.
Heard steady sound of aircraft; listened to determine if it was radial piston engines because I like to see and hear warbirds. Wasn’t a radial; it was a jet, rocket or re-entry sound-a steady roar. Went outside to back patio and yard. Sound was from southwest; looked ahead of sound and spotted a reflection just SW of overhead moving rapidly to SE. It had the appearance of previous sightings of shuttle passing overhead on landing approach toward Canaveral. Lost sight after it passed overhead and moved toward SE. Sound continued for several seconds after sight was lost.
Went inside and checked major TV network channels for news--no results. Checked internet for shuttle Endeavor news--it is supposed to be still in orbit attached to space station.
