HOUSTON, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- The Federal Aviation Administration said a ball of fire reported in the sky over Texas was most likely a meteor.
The FAA said it received reports ranging from Houston to Oklahoma about the fireball in the sky Wednesday evening, The Austin (Texas) American-Statesman reported Thursday.
"Given that it was seen by a large number of people across so many miles makes it likely it was a meteor or a piece of space junk, but most likely a meteor," FAA Southwest region spokeswoman Lynn Lunsford said.
Authorities in Texas said they have not received any reports of damage from the falling object.
Cat born with two faces
SUNCOAST, Fla., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A Florida family said they were shocked when their cat gave birth to a kitten with two faces, a condition known as diprosopus.
Nash Hand and his wife, Amanda Forsythe, of Suncoast, said their cat, Nene, gave birth Monday and they were shocked to see the kitten had two faces, a condition that earns such felines the nickname Janus cat, after the Roman god with two faces, WWSB-TV, Sarasota, Fla., reported Thursday.
The couple said they named the cat Harvey Dent, after the Batman villain Two-Face.
"They simultaneously work together, the two faces. When he eats on one side it looks like he is eating on the other. When he meows it comes out of both sides," Forsythe said.
Dr. Greg Fluharty with the Animal Clinic in Port Charlotte said he examined the feline and he appears healthy.
"Lungs sound normal. Respiration and heart rate were normal for a kitten that age," he said.
Harvey has an appointment this week with a vet neurologist to conduct further tests.
"It's going to give them some information so they can make the right choices," Fluharty said.
Man plans 50 fights in one night
PITMAN, N.J., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A New Jersey karate instructor said he will celebrate his 50th birthday by fighting 50 different people in a night to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Brian Digore, an instructor at Okinawa Kenpo Karate in Pitman and a former Marine, said he will fight 50 people for 90 seconds at a time in boxing and mixed martial arts matches to raise funds for the charity on his birthday, Feb. 11, KYW-TV, Philadelphia, reported Thursday.
"People are starting to say, 'What's wrong with you?'" Digore quipped. "'Are you feeling okay?'"
Robert Jakubowski, chief executive officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters, said he wasn't sure what to think of Digore's idea at first, but he is now fully on board.
"When we heard more about Brian and what he does, he's fighting for kids just like we are," Jakubowski said.
Tickets for the event will cost between $10 and $50, depending on where the buyer wants to sit and whether they'd like to spar with Digore.
"Anything's going to help us, because it costs us about $1,000 to $1,500 for every mentoring match," Jakubowski said.
Obama's old car fails to sell on eBay
CHICAGO, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A gray 2005 Chrysler 300C leased by Barack Obama in 2004 failed to sell for the asking price of $1 million on eBay, the Chicago-area seller said.
Lisa Czibor, the eBay seller working on behalf of owner Tim O'Boyle, said the $1 million asking price may have been too high for bidders and the auction ended Wednesday without any bids meeting the minimum, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.
"We're trying to talk him into rerunning it now and making some changes to (the listing)," Czibor said. "Lowering the price, and contacting Obama to find out if there's a charity he'd like us to donate some of the profits to. In the end, it's (O'Boyle's) car. It's up to him."
The description in the auction said Obama leased the car in 2004, when he was still an Illinois state senator, and he traded it in for a 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid while running for president.
"We have the original Illinois title showing this vehicle was actually used by Barack. 19,000 miles driven when this vehicle was Obama's," the auction description read.
