EVANS, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- It wasn't a bird, a plane, or a bullet streaking across the morning sky.

It was, instead, a possible meteor.

The WRDW/WAGT newsroom received several phone calls Thursday morning about something shooting across the sky at a high rate of speed.

Our own news crew caught the object in the Evans area just before 7 a.m.

The object was also spotted across the southeast. Eagle-eyed people saw the object in Columbia, Charleston, and Charlotte.

The American Meteor Society also had several hundred people self-report an object zooming across the morning sky between 6:45 a.m. and 7 a.m.
