Loud Boom Caused By Meteor Entering Earth's Atmosphere

Syracuse, N.Y. - An official with the American Meteor Society says he knows why folks in Oswego, Madison and Onondaga counties heard a large boom yesterday.

The spokesman says that it is due to the meteor entering the Earth's atmosphere over Lake Ontario. He says events like this are common and don't pose a threat to anyone.

In all likelihood, the meteor disintegrated into harmless tiny fragments. Anything that may have splashed into the lake was probably the size of dust particles.
