Social media users took to Twitter and reported that the suspected meteor made a loud boom as it exploded.

Robert Massey, deputy executive director for the Royal Astronomical Society, told CNN that he believes the object could have been a 'low-altitude meteor,' which burned into a fireball.

"If people did see it and it was something like an incoming low-altitude meteor, they can consider themselves lucky," he told CNN.
