Doorbell camera captures meteor streaking across North Texas sky

A meteor was spotted streaking across the evening sky over areas of northern Texas.

Rockwall resident Austin Rylaarsdam stepped outside just at the right moment to witness the meteor just before 9 pm on Sunday, July 25.

Video captured by Rylaarsdam’s doorbell camera shows the fiery ball shining briefly overhead.

"Happened to go outside and set off our Ring motion," Rylaarsdam wrote on Facebook. "Saw a blue streak then flash with orange/red fire."

Local news reports said the meteor was spotted in the skies over Austin, Dallas, the Brazos Valley, and other areas of northern, central, and eastern Texas.
