ST. LOUIS – Did you see a bright flash or hear a loud boom Monday night?

Around 8:50 p.m. the Fox 2 phones lit up as viewers call about hearing a loud boom or seeing a bright flash of blue light in the western St. Louis Metro area.  Viewers reported sightings from St. Peters, O'Fallon Missouri, and St. Louis County.

Meteorologist Glenn Zimmerman says it was most likely a meteor from the Taurid Meteor Shower burning up as it entered Earth’s atmosphere.
