The explosion in Saratoga County that several people reported hearing was likely a meteor, officials said Thursday.

The sheriff's office says it happened around 10:45 p.m. Reports came in from areas like Greenfield, Milton, and Ballston Spa, of a loud explosion that shook homes and even turned the sky green.

There were no witnesses to the event or a reported location of the source, according to officials.

"After discussions with all of our law enforcement partners, government agencies including the FAA, FBI, ATF, National Weather Service and NASA as well as discussions with scientists and scholars it is our determination that the likely cause of the event was a meteor entering and burning up in the atmosphere," read a press release from the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office.
