Did you hear it? Many Panhandle residents are reporting that they heard a loud "bang" followed by a "roaring noise" last night around 10.
What may have sounded like something extremely strange was likely a meteor. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, a meteor may have been seen throughout parts of Oklahoma and Texas. The FAA received several reports from people who said they saw the bright, streaking light.
Storm Search 7 Chief Meteorologist Steve Kersh said the noise was caused by the meteorite burning up while entering the Earth's atmosphere over Central Texas and into Central Oklahoma.
