Fort Worth, Texas-AP -- First the sky lit up and then callers did the same to police phone lines across five states.
A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration says it's likely that what people saw Wednesday night from Texas to western Tennessee was a
meteorite -- probably several.
The lights flashed across the sky shortly after 9 p-m in portions of Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Tennessee.
A spokesman for the National Weather Service in Fort Worth says it wasn't a weather event.
A forecaster in Louisiana says that whatever the object was, it had to be very high up in the sky and quite large for such a large area of people to
have seen it.
