The light and blast were in the background of the footage showing a Doreen resident getting something out of his car.
He then walks to the street to try to find the cause of the sound.
“When you hear those big thunderstorms and those big cracks … this was 10 times that,” Doreen resident Sean Scanlon told 7NEWS.
“This shook the ground and it got every neighbour out of their home.”

The blast was heard and felt across Doreen, Mernda and South Morang and while residents in Balwyn, Diamond Creek, and Doncaster also said they heard a bang.
The cause remains unknown and space experts said there was no meteorite detected in the area, despite other reports.
No earthquake activity was registered by Geoscience Australia and no explosions or damage were recorded by electricity company AusNet.
The Victorian government also confirmed to there were no unauthorised detonations at the nearby quarry or any roadworks.
When locals reported the noise to emergency services, police found no sign of an explosion or damage to properties.
In August, a similar ball of light passed over Victorian skies accompanied by a “loud boom”.
The space agency later confirmed that object was believed to be remnants of a Russian Soyuz-2 rocket re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere.
