San Isidro, Texas, USA – Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 5:22 PM local time, A large meteor fireball was observed heading northwest near the Mexican border, ending near the Texas town of McAllen. Doppler data was released by NASA, and booms were heard in the area, so meteorites are likely.
The attached file contains approximate Doppler shadows, based on Dr. Marc Fries image. (We’ve been so busy with the 2023 CX1 event in France, we haven’t had time to download the data ourselves yet!)
Fun Note: To help keep track of which ones you’ve searched, I have named each Doppler signature in the KMZ file. For fun, I used popular baby names in Texas 🙂
There were was a strong south wind at the time of the fall, so the meteorite landing points may be slightly north of the Doppler signatures, depending on how high there were detected. We can predict the shift, but it will take some time.
