It sounded like thunder, shaking houses across metro Detroit at roughly 8:15 p.m. Tuesday.
The National Weather Service for Detroit posted a since-deleted reply on Twitter at 8:25 p.m.: "No lightning was detected. Appears to have been a meteor."
Multiple images were posted of night skies being lit up, as social media is abuzz with people reporting what they saw or heard.
Saw something moving across the sky. Can first notice it over my neighbors garage moving from right to left. pic.twitter.com/hyVfUt3m5z— Kevin Colbert (@kgcolbert1) January 17, 2018
