Have you seen the crazy footage of that meteor?

It flashed over an area of southeast Michigan around 8:10 p.m. Tuesday, lighting up the sky before exploding and crackling into nothingness. 

The whole episode, which last just a few seconds, was strong enough that it caused an earthquake that measured a 2.0, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

It seemed to be brightest in Michigan, with the Geological Survey pinpointing the location as about 30 miles north of Detroit, but the American Meteor Society says people in six other states – Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Missouri and Ontario, Canada – also reported spotting it.

But let's be honest – we all want to see video. So here are some of the best clips we could find.
