See on December 7, 2012, some assume this was the Geminids meteor shower, however, others aren't so sure. If you saw these lights please reply to this post:
Eyewitnesses from Dallas to Houston, as far west as Austin and as far east as Louisiana described the light, which occurred sometime before 7 a.m., alternately as "a burst of green" or "a bright blue flash followed by a tail of smoke" that "looked similar to lightning flash" and even sounded to some like a "sonic boom." It's most likely an object from the Geminids meteor shower, speculated a meteorologist for KHOU. It's most likely an object from the Geminids meteor shower, a meteorologist speculated for KHOU.
