Spectacle in Midwestern sky was probably meteor, military says
Salt Lake City Today | February 5, 2007
Scores of people all over the central United States reported seeing flames and fiery explosions in the sky Sunday night.
Calls flooded 911 operators and area police departments, the Missouri Highway Patrol said. Callers described the spectacle in various ways, some saying it looked like a plane crash and others calling it a ball of fire in the sky.
A preliminary report Sunday indicated that the lights were from a meteor, said Maj. April Cunningham, a spokeswoman for North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, which watches for airborne threats to the United States and Canada.
"We had a pilot reporting seeing a meteor, and that's really all the information we have tonight," Cunningham said.
Reports came from residents in central Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Wisconsin and Minnesota, the Highway Patrol said.
The patrol forwarded the information to the Federal Aviation Administration and had no reports of damage or landings from the potential meteor or space debris.
