I had never seen anything like this before. The boom was so loud that it shook the ground. The light was so bright, I was amazed that it was even shown in broad daylight. I would understand if it happened at night. Because my neighbours have been known to shoot off fireworks on occasion. But this during the daylight. I walked outside and I was a little bit shaken up and looked at the sky. And I did not see anything else.

IT SOUNDED LIKE A FIREWORK. I SAW IT COME INTO VIEW. AND LOOKED OUT MY WINDOW. AND IT SOUNDED LIKE A SIZZLE.
ONCE IT HIT HALFWAY IT EXPLODED AND A MASSIVE BOOM WAS HEARD IN THE AREA.
IT LEFT A 2 SECOND TRAIN AFTER THE IMPACT IN THE SKY. AND THEN IT WAS GONE IN SECONDS.
IT LOOKED LIKE A FIRECRACKER. BUT IT WAS SHORT LIVED AND LOUD! VERY LOUD.
