It happened just after 2:00
"The sky gets a brighter, then suddenly there is a flash and it's gone," said Jeff Baker, living in Oak Grove.
Baker said he had installed a new gadget at his home's front door on Wednesday.
"We just want to classify things," he said.
But when he awoke on Thursday morning, he and his wife learned some of the activities they had earned by their doorbell Nest midnight.
"My husband showed it to me this morning, and it seems like I had a lightning or something, and I got it," Baker said.
However hearing similar videos ensures that their views are real.
"It's hard to believe," Baker said.
The American Meteor Society received 14 reports of fireballs in the sky in Minnesota on Thursday morning – extending from the New Lake to the nearby Mora.
Along with the flash came with a powerful boom.
Diedre Zelin of Bethel said he was in his kitchen when he heard it after just 2am Thursday.
"It sounds like an explosion or a car crash outside the house," he said. "It shook the whole house. It rattled the floors and windows. It was really strong."
At first, Zelin was afraid that it was something inside his house.
"I thought my fireplace blew up," he said. "I'm in the kitchen, and it shakes the floor and the windows, my furnace is beneath, so I thought my furnace or hot water heater could be a kind of scary."
American Meteor Experts The Star Tribune Society said that the circular ball, which is estimated to be the size of a refrigerator, can be reduced to rocks as large as a grape.
Baker said it was fun to be one of the few who could say that they have a home video of a shooting star.
"This is my 15 minutes of popularity," Baker says.
The American Meteor Society believes it is only the second time throughout the year that a meteor is close enough to drop stones.
