SPOKANE - A meteor was seen across a wide area of the Pacific Northwest early today.

A Federal Aviation Administration duty officer in Seattle confirms that the streaking light in the sky was a meteor.

The officer, who would not give his name, told The Associated Press it was seen by pilots from Boise, Idaho, westward well into Washington state.

KHQ Television in Spokane has reported getting viewer calls from much of Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

Various callers to the station say it resembled summer lighting, a rocket, a satellite or an exploding transformer.
