Was it a meteor? A plane? Or was it something else? Reports of a bright flash were reported throughout SE Texas around 7 a.m., including many sightings right here in Houston, but as far east as Louisiana.

It’s origin is unknown, but many eyewitnesses said they saw the same thing: a flash, similar to lightning, lighting up the sky.

NEWS 92 FM  spoke to Carolyn Sumner with the Houston Museum of Natural Science to find out what the flash of light might be:

Sumner said eyewitnesses are needed by the museum to investigate this phenomenon.

Nancy Humphries was driving her kids to school in Katy when she saw the flash of light.

The reports flooded in online on NEWS 92 FM’s social media accounts.

Twitter follower @BigHarryDaddy tweeted he saw the flash at Highway 6 and Alief Clodine. Through the fog, he reports, there was no defined shape to the event.

Sue Langgard, of Seabrook, saw the flash around 6:45 a.m., she reports.

“Very bright explosion of green light followed by bright blue tail,” she wrote, adding it, “went low across the sky from Northeast to Southwest.”

Langgard’s sighting is similar to that of Facebook followers Antonio Martinez and Jaime Garza. Garza, however, isn’t convinced it can be easily explained.

“It can’t be a meteor, never seen it light up a sky like that,” he wrote.
