Date: March 4, 2012My son, his friend and I also saw and heard three pieces of burning debris falling from the sky over Texas about 6:30 pm on March 4, 2012. We watched for around 10 minutes while three separate objects fell from the sky.
Time: Approx: 6:30 p.m.
The first was over Northern Tarrant County, and as we watched it fall, it was obvious that it was getting smaller as the red tail reduced and the sound did as well.
We then heard a sonic boom, followed by another object falling to the right (North) of the first, around the same time that a third began falling well to the left (South) over what was the Downtown Ft. Worth area from our point of view in Keller, TX.
Each had its own sound of a "jet roar". I did not hear a boom with the first, but we were driving at the time. The second two we'd stopped the car and got out to watch.
These were not typical meteors which have a trajectory all their own, and usually seem to streak in more horizontally and with speed. These three were simply pulled with the force of gravity and did not seem to have much speed.
They fell almost directly down with some slight angled slant. They seemed to fall for a very long time, getting smaller as they dropped.
There was a military jet which traveled from the location of close to the third object toward the first two, so there was some official notice of this event, though no official reports that I've seen.
The event looked identical to me as when the space shuttle exploded over Texas and the pieces rained down over the sky. Same types of tails with a center void of a sort.
