Well, someone is flying some sort of craft very high, and very, very fast, as I have personally observed it in daylight hours. Directly overhead and no noise whatsoever. Horizon to horizon, clear blue sky. This was at least a twin engined craft.
Now, my question is, does height have any effect on sonic boom heard at ground level ?
Can a craft, say flying at 80000-100000ft, flying supersonic/hypersonic be heard at ground level ?
I believe the shuttle could be heard leaving sonic booms on re-entry.
There are numerous MOAs around Reno. You have Fallon North and South; Churchhill MOA and Ranch High and Low. Restricted Areas R-2810, 2812, 2813A and 2816N are in northern Nevada.

I'm very intrigued by this as I have heard similar over Northern Nevada. One sonic boom followed by three more. I could understand a training exercise out by Fallon, but these were above Reno.
