UFO Sightings In Midwest? No, But Meteor Light Show Fills Sky
By Gene Byrd

Great balls of fire. Scores of people all over the Midwest and
Upper Midwestern United States reported seeing flames and fiery
explosions in the sky Sunday night. The Associated Press reports
that from southeastern Wisconsin to as far as Des Moines, Iowa
and St. Louis, people reported seeing balls of fire, possibly
meteors, streaking across the sky on Sunday night.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 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, reports AP.

"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 Missouri Highway Patrol said.

According to the Post-Dispatch, the patrol forwarded the
information to the Federal Aviation Administration and had no
reports of damage or landings from the potential meteor or space
