I heard a noise that wasn't so loud as it was mysterious. I remember thinking it might be thunder, but somehow it didn't really sound quite like that. I didn't think any more about it until reading this article. Obviously, that's what it must have been. Quite cool, I'd say!

I saw it over the Scarsdale sky heading East. Was quite enormous with a yellowish tint. Looked more like a huge shooting star. By far one of the biggest I've ever seen. Time was around 9:30 PM on Saturday. Didn't hear any
sound associated with it.

My husband and I both heard this intense explosion around 12:30. He thought it might be an electrical transformer, but we both thought it was more powerful than that. We expected to hear sirens or emergency vehicles, but there was nothing but silence afterwards. We searched local news, but until this article, it seemed there was no coverage. Would love to know if they ever find the meteorite...
