People all across Maine, from Boothbay Harbor all the way to York County, claim they heard a loud boom last night shortly after midnight.

WMTW Channel 8 in Portland, ME says the American Meteor Society heard from about a dozen people reporting a meteor in southern Maine and western New Hampshire. One person described it to them as a "deep rolling."

United States Geological Survey hadn't reported any earthquakes in Maine or New Hampshire, according to the report from WMTW.

The TV station says Michael Coslet sent them a video of a light crossing his yard in Durham. While other people on Boothbay Harbor felt some shaking.

So what was it...a meteor or an earthquake? No one is certain yet. I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest Santa may have been doing a test run on a new sled. Sure it sounds crazy...but at this point anything is possible.
