Meteor streaking across Washington State ends in loud sonic boom

Meteor may have sent powerful sonic boom from as far as 37 miles away, man claims

BRIER, Wash. (INTELLIHUB) — A meteor was captured on camera streaking across the sky above Puget Sound Wednesday evening followed by one loud sonic boom.

Local resident Scott Story captured the following video from a camera on his porch at 7:02 pm on Wednesday which appears to show a large fireball and an audible boom.

Story told a local news outlet that the loud boom took about three minutes to approach which Story calculated would put the meteor some “200,000 feet” away or 37 miles.
