DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A lot of people are talking about a bluish-green ball of fire that streaked across the Texas sky Thursday night.

Most believe it was a meteor.

The American Meteor Society said it has received more than 70 reports so far about the fireball. Many of them came from the Austin area, but folks in DFW, Houston, Louisiana and Oklahoma also said they saw it. 

The Leonid meteor shower happens this weekend, but experts said there's no way to know if this was part of that.
