OKLAHOMA CITY — The Federal Aviation Administration says a bright, streaking light seen in the skies over parts of Oklahoma and Texas likely was a meteor.

FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said late Wednesday the agency had received reports from people who saw the object about 8 p.m. as far north as Oklahoma City and as far south as Houston.

Lunsford said FAA officials knew it wasn't an airplane people were seeing, and a meteor was the likely candidate.

AUSTIN  - A bright green fireball streaked across the Texas and Oklahoma sky on Wednesday night.

Viewers from all over the Austin area said they saw the fireball just before 8 p.m.

Christina Murrey, a digital video specialist for Texas State University, was taking photos for a time lapse project at the University's observatory when her team was able to catch the fleeting fireball in a few frames. KXAN News pieced together the pictures to create the time lapse.
