Apparent meteor lights up central Indiana sky

INDIANAPOLIS -- Many central Indiana residents and motorists reported seeing a very bright flash in the night sky late Wednesday. The sighting was confirmed by at least one police agency:

A check with police agencies in the area found scattered reports of public sightings including half a dozen or so calls received by Delaware County Sheriff's Department.
