A meteor made quite a few people pay attention to the skies over Laredo, Texas Saturday night. People from California to south Texas took to Twitter to mention the size and speed of this fireball.

Many say it crashed into earth, which isn't all that unusual. NASA says every day about one hundred tons of meteoroids enter the earth's atmosphere in the form of dust, gravel, and, sometimes, even big rocks. This could be one of those big rocks.
