Residents in the northern Midwest were startled by a physical shaking, loud rumbling and extremely bright flash Tuesday night. Early reports suggest that a fireball meteor soared across the area. See videos below.
The reports are pouring in from those in SE Michigan who saw a bright flash of light and then heard a boom. Suspicion for now is that it was a meteor. Developing...— Devin Scillian (@DevinScillian) January 17, 2018
I guess there was a meteor that flew by the area? I didn’t see it but our security camera picked this up. pic.twitter.com/8bkQit2jr3— Ray G. (@TheRayGar) January 17, 2018

A meteor lit up Ohio over Toledo and Michigan and now everyone on social is hoping that's all it was and not the N. Koreans. So yeah, thanks for that @Trevornoah.— Brandon Withrow (@bwithrow) January 17, 2018
Multiple 911 calls are coming of a meteor fireball that passed overhead. There is no need to call 911. All indications are that it was just a natural meteor fireball. https://t.co/l5578mnDOF— Ingham County HSEM (@InghamHSEM) January 17, 2018
