BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - People from Kentucky to Texas reported seeing a "fireball" in the sky Wednesday morning.

WAFB received reports from people in a few parishes that they saw what they believe was a meteor streak across the sky around 6:50 a.m.

Some Louisiana viewers described the meteor as a flash of white with a bluish glow to it with dark objects in the light. They added the meteor appeared to be breaking into smaller pieces.

Those who saw it said it was visible only about a second.
