Boom heard as bright flash streaks across sky

People across Michigan reported seeing a bright flash in the sky Tuesday evening.

Storm Team 8 says the phenomenon spotted around 8:10 p.m. was a meteor. The National Weather Service in Detroit confirmed it was not thunder or lightning and said it was a “likely meteor.”

The U.S. Geological Survey later said the meteorite caused a magnitude 2.0 earthquake, with its epicenter near New Haven on the state’s east side.

Chief meteorologist Bill Steffen says the streak of light is called a fireball or bolide.

Several videos of it from security and dash cameras were posted online. Mike Austin posted one such video captured by his dashcam as he drove north on I-75 near Bloomfield Hills.
