Thousands of people across Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri reported seeing a big ball of fire with a tail, flying across the northeast sky last night.
Calls began coming into our newsroom a little after 9:30, all with the same story. Witnesses describe something that looked like a meteor or a comet.
After recieving several calls, D-P-S officials contacted local airports and the Federal Aviation Administration. They say the light was not a plane or any kind of aircraft.
A spokesman for the National Weather Service in Fort Worth said the sightings were likely a meteor shower.
