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

“It sounded similar to sonic booms I’ve heard before, followed by a brief burst of what sounded like low-pitched thunder,” she said.

“The rumbling noise followed by an explosion can last 3-4 seconds.”

Wyoming Governor Spencer Cox tweeted that his office confirmed it was not linked to any seismic activity or military facilities.

The National Weather Service’s Salt Lake City office wrote in a tweet that their lightning detection mapper may have picked up the meteor’s trailing flash.

The nine-second video appears to show the meteor flying over nearby mountain peaks in the morning light.
