|mysterious flashes of light followed by two loud booms
I was listening to my police scanner when a call went out to a county officer. The dispatcher said they had just received a call of two loud booms and gave the officer the address. The caller stated that it was toward the south of his residence but nothing looked out of the ordinary. Shortly after, another call came in describing two loud booms around the pierceville/deleware area. This time two bright flashes of light were seen in the southern sky and followed by the loud booms. Police checked the railroad tracks for a possible train accident. Everything checked ok. Yet another call came in to the dispatcher. Reports of two loud booms in the area of (address given)but the caller did not witness anything. I called my mom and sister who had heard the booms as well but they are about four miles apart. This incident took place within about a ten mile radius. The sky was clear and no rain or storms were in the area. I contacted the police but they said they do not know what it was. Could it have been a meteroite that had broken up and into two sections (two flashes) and each piece broke the sound barrier (loud booms)? I don't know but I would like some theroies on this (no assanine theroies please).
