Several Paris residents witnessed an apparent meteor shower, which lit up the sky from Texas to western Tennessee Wednesday night.
"All I saw was the contrail,” Paris Emergency Management Coordinator Lt. Bob Hundley of the Paris Police Department said of the smoke it left behind.
“We had about three 9-1-1 calls and four or five calls on our administrative lines,” Hundley said of the event, which happened a little after 9 p.m. “A dispatcher called and I went outside to look.”
Hundley said initial calls indicated people thought they saw a plane crashing, but Hundley said a crash would not have lasted more than 15 seconds or so.
“This left a trail, which lasted a good 15 or 20 minutes,” Hundley said.
