DETROIT (CBS4) – Thousands of people took to social media after a meteor streaked across the sky in the upper Midwest.

Residents in Detroit report hearing a loud boom or a blast just after 7 p.m. Tuesday.

NWS Detroit says it was in fact a meteor.


Emergency officials for Ingham County say there have been a flood of 911 calls, but say there is no need to call because “it’s a natural meteor fireball.”

They also say “there is no indication that anything landed on the ground or cased (sic) damage.”
