MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) -- A UFO research group will look into an Ohio man's report of a mysterious fireball that fell from the sky and lit up the woods near his home.
Rick Beverly says the big ball of fire was "cruising" when it came down Nov. 23 in Lexington, about 50 miles north of Columbus.
The Mansfield News Journal reports a field investigator with the Mutual Unidentified Flying Objects Network has made an appointment to meet with Beverly in Lexington. The group says it was contacted by another man from the area who described himself as an astronomer.
Lt. Michael Vinson with the Mansfield post of the State Highway Patrol says authorities searched the woods but found nothing. He says they believe the fireball may have been a meteor.
