Did you see a bright light, or hear what sounded like thunder Tuesday night just after 8pm? Experts are saying that was a meteor.

The American Meteor Society received hundreds reports of a fireball all over Michigan. There were also reported sightings as far as Wisconsin, Ohio, and Ontario.

Some residents reported their homes shaking. NWS Detroit says the atmospheric pressure wave generated from the meteors penetration into the atmosphere caused a M2.0 to register on seismometers.
