|A blue meteor that suddenly stopped
On August 2, 2014, 5:58am I was driving westbound on John T White Rd in east Fort Worth, just off Eastchase Parkway.
My wife was in the passenger seat. I witnessed a blue meteor directly through my front windshield just to the left of my rear view mirror. I started to point and tell my wife there was a meteor and then it stopped in place. She asked me why I was pointing at a star and I told her it could not be a star.
The object appeared to have come from the northwest and traveled across the sky rapidly like a typical meteor only it stopped suddenly. It stopped in the western portion of the sky about a quarter of the sky up from where the sun would set before I lost visual. There was no fluctuation in the light at all and no tail. There were no blinking lights only solid blue like a bright star. I told no one about this except my wife who was with me.
The next day on Facebook a few friends mentioned seeing a blue light in the sky behaving oddly so I knew it was not just a onetime fluke.
