Around 8 p.m. on November 26, 2013, a loud, booming noise was heard in Montreal; Ottawa; Cornwall, Ontario; and Plattsburgh in northern New York. The sound was preceded by a "blue flash" in the sky. Scientists said that the eyewitness reports and data from acoustic detectors were consistent with a meteoroid entering the atmosphere as the likely cause of the phenomena. Cloudy weather blocked the view of cameras placed to photograph meteors.
