A suspected meteor crossing the sky in the United States was caught on camera.

Residents in northern Utah said they heard a loud “boom” on Saturday morning.

Noise has also been reported in the neighboring state of Idaho.

South Salt Lake resident Wendi Melling was just walking out the door when she heard the noise, which she described as a “loud, deep sound” followed by a few seconds of rumbling.

“It sounded similar to the sonic booms I’ve heard before, followed by a short episode of a low, thunderous thunder-like sound,” he said.

“This rumble that followed the boom was maybe 3-4 seconds.”

Utah Governor Spencer Cox tweeted that his office confirmed it was not related to any seismic activity or military installations.

The Salt Lake City office of the National Weather Service wrote in a tweet that its lightning detection mapper likely picked up the trail of the meteorite.
