The US Geological Survey confirmed that a meteorite had exploded in the sky near New Haven, Michigan, about 40 miles northeast of Detroit, on Tuesday night. The USGS said the explosion caused enough force to register as a magnitude-2.0 earthquake. Video posted on social media Tuesday night shows drivers witnessing a flying rock that emitted a bright light in the night sky before disintegrating. Some videos showed it appearing to head straight toward some vehicles driving on a freeway before it disappeared. Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV reported receiving "hundreds of calls" from viewers around 8:15 p.m. local time to report the phenomenon.
