A flash of light and a rumble in the night became the talk of social media Tuesday night - and of callers to law-enforcement agencies in the Toledo area.

Dashboard-mounted cameras and home security cameras captured the path of the meteor and the flash on impact.

The National Weather Service said it was not thunder or lighting and that it appears to be a meteor.

"No lightning was detected".

"I have heard people saw it as far Chicago, which if that's true that tells me it happened pretty high up in the atmosphere if they're seeing it from that distance", Narlock says. Narlock tells Metro Times the meteor likely exploded very high in the sky, which is why people as far away as IL are reporting hearing and seeing it.
