"Everything was pitch dark, and all of a sudden it lit up," Doug Robinson told KCNC-TV, who was one of the residents who captured the meteor on security footage.

At first, he thought it was a flash of lightning.

He was among more than 41 others who reported the sighting to the American Meteor Society. There were about six others who also heard a boom.
