NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Many south Texans are still trying to figure out what they saw streak across the sky early Wednesday morning.
One eyewitness took a cell phone video while out on his boat in the Freeport area around 3:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.
Early speculation was that it was a possible meteor - this on the heels of the recent meteor that exploded across Russia.
It turns out that it was a Chinese rocket, that was launched last year, re-entering the atmosphere.
