The "bang" was caused by a meteor sonic boom.

People from the Leduc, New Sarepta and south Edmonton region reported seeing a flash in the sky and hearing a loud booming sound Tuesday night.

Some residents even felt there house shake from the noise:

Later in the evening a porch camera from Kaitlyn Kostyniuk caught what looked to be a meteor in the sky, the bang could be from the sonic boom.

The American Meteor Society posted on its website that it had received a report “about a fireball seen over Alberta” from someone in Edmonton just after 9 p.m. The person reported that the light lasted about 7.5 seconds.
