A 4.0 magnitude earthquake occurred about 3 miles from the Palomar Observatory on Sunday morning, jostling San Diego County.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake hit around 9:46 a.m. at a depth of 13.7 kilometers, or about 8.5 miles. It was located 3 miles south-southwest of the observatory.

One resident in Valley Center called the Sheriff’s Department to report feeling the earthquake and seeing smoke in the area. The smoke was from a controlled burn and not related to the quake, said sheriff’s Lt. Martha Hernandez.

Residents all around the region, including La Mesa and Escondido, also reporting feeling the temblor.
