Last night, while while I was watching The Middle and you were....well, doing whatever you do at about 8PM on a Tuesday (it's OK, we won't judge), a meteor came hurtling into the earth's atmosphere at about 45,000 MPH - and blew up. According to ClickOnDetroit, it caused a sonic boom and caused a 2.0 magnitude earthquake. Because it was so bright and it caused an audible explosion, scientists will refer to it as a bolide. (Please use this information to correct everyone at work when they bring up this subject. Thank you)

Here's the story, with multiple videos of the event.

Here's an update from 9AM - NASA says it was traveling at a snail's pace - and tell your friends who live east of here to start looking for pieces of this thing.
