Chicken-Fried News: It’s a ... meteorite?

An Oklahoma City man called 911 early one morning last week to report “strange lights in the sky.” Uh-oh. We know where that leads.

According to, the caller reported what he thought was a crashing plane. It appeared to move too fast toward Earth to have any kind of a safe landing. He did not hear an explosion.

When first responders arrived at the scene, they found nothing, reported.

However, another 911 caller also reported the same streaking light in the same area while driving down May Avenue.

Could the little green men have stopped by for a visit? Cue the spooky Twilight Zone music.

Officials decided it was probably a meteorite. But it seems suspicious that there was no evidence of said space rock.

We hope our visitors don’t have the notion that we’re just a flyover state. Hopefully next time they’ll pick a more entertaining part of town — say, the Adventure District — and stay awhile.
