Residents in multiple states captured footage of what seemed to mimic the flight of a shooting star, but had the sound of something much more powerful.
This video was taken by a Twitter user in the Los Angeles area.

On the other hand, an astronomer at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles told ABC that witnesses could have seen a comet.
Regardless of what the cause is, it's safe to say that the sighting is definitely a freakish one.
