We all are in Nitro, WV and was watching a movie projected onto the side of the house laying out in the yard and seen a flash throughout the sky, then seconds later heard a distant 'boom' and could not figure out what it was. I believe it might have been a meteor now.

I was sitting outside a coffee shop in Austin one summer a few years ago. In the company of several people. I heard 3 booms coming from the sky. Only one other person heard it too. The group broke up and I walked across the street got in some shade with my coffee and started watching some dog rescue people showing their dogs. As a woman was petting a dog all of sudden dirt flew up all around her. Just her. Just that one small spot. I went over to talk to the woman and she said she seen sparks all around me ! We just looked at Each other and walked away. True.

I will never know for sure, but I remember when I was kid under 10 years old I was walking with my mom and siblings in some park in Pomona California. And I was about 40 feet behind from my family and it was night time, I remember seeing a green glittery flash/sparkling object going down instantly no more than 20 feet away from me. It subsided almost instantly when I saw it going down. It was so fast I was confused what I saw. But I am sure it was no firework because the sound did not relate to any firework I ever heard. Also there was no pop sound, just the sound of some debris falling down and yes the surrounding area was pretty silent besides the birds and instincts making their sounds. I wander even today what it was.

Cool. At least it's better news than the typical dailies. Also, the sonic boom is definitely a sign that it got pretty far into the atmosphere prior to burning up (due TO the atmosphere). A lot of people don't realize that meteors must travel in ORBITS (as opposed to movies where they just come straight on down, lol) prior to even coming close to striking Earth's surface (or liquid). Anyhow. It's pretty funny how uneducated people are; mostly thanks to Hollywood disaster films. 😂🤣😂
