I saw this when I was coming back from Austin yesterday night on 1604 heading westbound. It looked like it was a few hundred feet away from me.

I was at an outdoor wedding reception off of 37 and Southton Rd. I happened to be sitting facing that direction of the sky when I saw it. I said "oh ****. look at that," and the whole table turned in time to see it. From where we were it came down at an angle and wasn't too high in the sky. I thought it was just skipping the atmosphere because it had a small streak at first, but then it flared and burned green leaving a bright orange trail behind it. That made me think it actually came down somewhere. It was pretty cool and happened pretty fast. I'm not sure if anyone else at the party saw it, but at least our table did.

I was at the George Observatory outside of Houston and I saw it while we were waiting in line to look through a telescope.
We had also seen one maybe a half hour to an hour before that, but that was just your standard big shooting star, nothing like the showstopper to follow.
