Several people reported seeing a meteor fall Monday night west of Billings in an area between Red Lodge and Molt.

Reports were vague, but the National Weather Service office in Billings fielded a handful of calls from people who claimed to have seen the space rock hurtling toward the Earth about 7:30 p.m.

One caller "said it lit up the sky and either burned up just before it hit the ground or it hit the ground," NWS forecaster Aaron Gilstead said. "It just lit up the sky with a blue light."
