EAGLE, Idaho — A loud explosion was heard over Eagle Friday night at around 8:15 p.m.
A video was sent to CBS2 News by one of our viewers, Joe Schumacher, who is an Eagle resident. The video was captured by his ring doorbell security camera showing a flash of light and loud noise. Several Eagle residents also reached out to us about hearing an explosion.
Some viewers on Facebook even said it was some kind of Mortar.
CBS2 is still working to verify what exactly caused the commotion.
The Ada County Sheriff's Office PIO, Patrick Orr, said dispatch got several calls about a loud noise Friday night at around 8:15 p.m.
"Most of the calls were from the north Ada County area. We sent a few deputies out, and they couldn’t find anything. That was the extent of our involvement," Orr said.
CBS2's Chief Meteorologist Roland Steadham said it looked like the bright light and loud boom could be a meteorite entering into the Earth's atmosphere. He said the meteorite would have been moving at such a fast pace that it created a sonic boom.
