OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - 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.
