A flash of light and loud noise seen and heard in the morning skies of Eastern Washington this morning probably was a meteor, a government agency said.

The Pacific NW Seismograph Center said that an object entered the earth’s atmosphere about 6:30 a.m. above the town of Rockford. Seismic equipment was used to confirm the time and location, the center said in a report Friday.
