POTEAU, OK. (KTHV) -- Quite a stir across the state tonight, lots of folks saw a big ball of fire streaking across the sky.
The Sebastian County Sheriff's Office says it was a meteor and likely hit near Poteau Mountain, Oklahoma.
We contacted amateur astronomer Steven Meeks who writes an astronomy blog on todaysthv.com, he says it was likely a meteor and since some people saw it burn a bit greenish -- it probably contained copper.
He also says it was probably no bigger than a pebble. According to affiliate KFSM, the meteor was also sighted in Greenwood, Jonesboro, Jackson, Miss., Biloxi, Miss., and the Florida Panhandle.
