The news said that two satelites collided outside the earths atmospherre and that what was capture on video was debris falling and burning up on the way own. pretty freaky, because they're worried that the debris that is still orbiting could take out other satelites.

A video next time would help:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_eJLcGPWTs

Opinion: UFO
Fact: Meteor. If that thing fell in Austin, TX, it would have been found and reported. Nothing has been found and reported, thus, it was a meteor that burned up before it hit the ground.

Not entirely true. One lady has a chunk about the size of her hand that nailed her in the back.
