UPDATE WITH VIDEO: Fireball lights up the sky

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- A fireball lit up the sky just after 10 p.m. Wednesday night. Dozens of viewers called KWWL to report a big flash of light move across the sky for a few seconds.

Watch the video and see pictures on Schnack's blog.

Howard County Sheriff's Deputy Tim Beckman was sitting at a stop sign near Elma when he caught the fireball on his dash cam as it moved across the sky.

The Federal Aviation Administration says it was part of a meteor shower.  No injuries were reported and scientists say it doesn't appear the meteor hit the ground.
