Some Hoosiers were warned of a bright flash and sonic boom of the falling meteor around 8:45 pm Friday night.
The fireball from the meteor, part of the Lyrid shower, was bright enough to appear in the National Weather Service’s lightning mapper.
The Hamilton County, Indiana, Emergency Management Agency said no damage or injuries were caused by the meteor.
The Lyrids meteor shower is falling over central Indiana and is expected to peak in meteor abundance on Saturday and Sunday nights. According to NASA, the shower that started on April 15th is predicted to pass by April 29th.
Doorbell cameras in many homes in the area recorded the boom and flash, including one owned by Indiana resident Mark Gilles Westfield.

However, the show wasn’t limited to just Indiana. The American Meteor Society has received 26 reports of him seeing fireballs from residents of Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan.
