A meteor shower lit the night sky overnight Wednesday, according to the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office.

Dispatchers took calls from folks in the Frewsburg area to Ashville.  

On Facebook, folks report seeing a 'fireball' in Olean, Cheektowaga, North Lancaster, Ischua, Cuba and Alfred.

Dispatchers say this will be going on for a few more days.
