PRESCOTT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- People across northern Arizona reported hearing another loud 'boom' Tuesday night, just days after a similar event.
According to the Yavapai County Sheriff's, their office has received multiple calls around 7:50 p.m. about a loud boom from an unknown source, mostly from the south and west county areas.
Prescott area residents reported hearing a similar boom Sunday morning around 7:20 a.m., with some initially believing an earthquake had shook the area, while others thought something had fallen from the sky. Although scientists are still researching that event, meteor experts say a meteorite likely entered the atmosphere at 20- 22,000 miles per hour.
Researchers say they are currently investigating to confirm whether or not this was a meteor-related event.
