Loud Boom Heard Over North Carolina Likely Caused By Meteor Fireball
So this is very gradually becoming the new ‘norm’ where every few days there is a report of a loud boom where the likely suspect is a meteor fireball, interesting no?
WLOS (ABCnews) reports:
The American Meteor Society received about 50 reports about a fireball seen over the Southeast late Thursday night.
AMS said the fireball was seen shortly after 10 p.m. in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and Kentucky and Tennessee.
Because there was nothing other than the fireball reported in the area at the time of the boom, speculation is that the boom was likely a meteor breaking up in the atmosphere.
