Fireball Over Texas — It is Debris from the Crashed Satellites?

Discover News: News 8 out of Austin has video of the fireball! I can now state unequivocally that this is not the result of the satellite collision.

The meteor is moving far too quickly for that; satellite collision debris would fall at perhaps 10 km/sec max, while incoming meteoroids are moving at 11km/sec at a minimum, and this thing is screaming across the sky at several dozen km/sec (assuming it’s at a typical meteor height of 50 or more km). So I was probably right in the first place, and what we have here is almost certainly a single object, perhaps a meter or two across, and it came from deep space.
