Big 'flash' seen in the skies over part of Michigan and beyond

Suspected meteorite buzzes Detroit

The ground shook. This all happened after a meteor showed up to rock MI on Tuesday night.

A giant glowing fireball, most probably a "meteor" lit up the night sky over MI on Tuesday.

The National Weather Service said they received multiple reports from around Metro Detroit of "a flash and a boom" beginning about 8:10 p.m.

Storm Team 8 says the fireball would have been visible in an area with a diameter or about 200 miles.

It's not uncommon for non-earthquake vibrations to register on seismometers.

On January 2, the USA president tweeted to say he would be announcing "the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year". The "Fake News Awards", as Trump calls it, are going to "the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media".

On Tuesday evening, a flash was seen over IL and other states which caused a bit of a panic among the inhabitants. But Yeck said the magnitude can not be directly used to compare the meteor's size to an natural disaster because the source of the seismic signals are different.

"There's no way to translate the actual energy from an air blast into seismometers", Bellini told the outlet. "They're not created to measure vibrations coming from the air".

"I thought for sure I was either seeing the alien invasion or the apocalypse". We need his ancient astronaut theorist input. What we're still lacking though, is any evidence of impact that would warrant such a home-shaking, seismic event. Those little nuggets that cause our annual meteor showers travel at an average speed of 160,000 miles per hour.

The meteor would not have landed intact, Cooke said, but rather tiny pieces weighing only a few ounces would have scattered over the area.

Events like these occur dozens of times each year, including a handful over Michigan within the last decade or so, according to Michigan Live. It produced a big boom as it broke up in the atmosphere and, in all likelihood, left small meteorites on the ground in the region. "These types of incidents happen with some frequency, the last big one was in 2013 in Russian Federation and you could buy pieces of that relatively inexpensively".
