Its a hard noise to describe.

Kinda like a jetfighter going over your head, but the sound only lasting 1 or 2 seconds, maybe less.

I took a wee walk up to the top of the hill, as far as I could.
Can still hear banging, like Construction.

This isnt, like a mile away from me, its more like 5 maybe more.

100% heard a bang
100% did not burn up
It was speeding at a major speed and falling.

I was looking up, as a I do (have posted recent threads on things I seen near the sun), and I seen this.
I look up a lot, so I see a lot.

If you saw it a few mins before I posted this, then yes, we saw the same thing.

Just to add, It fell to the west and behind me.
It was still on fire and like a bullet, curving down, behind the Drumbrea hill, in a north/north/west direction (ish).

If it burnt up, it burnt up close to ground

Could it have hit the forth river?

Hmm, I dont think so, it was still high in the sky when it burnt out.
I think that our two different vantage points are responsible for our differing accounts of this thing. But the more I think of it, your account of it also suggests we may have seen two different objects. I suppose we`ll never know for sure, and that is very frustrating.

Anyhow, I need sleep now, catch ye Shauny mate, aw the best.

When an object travels faster than the speed of sound in Earth's atmosphere, a shock wave can be created that can be heard as a sonic boom. Large meteors frequently produce sonic booms which can be heard before they are slowed to below the speed of sound by Earth's atmosphere.

Here are some vids of sonic booms





and this one is of a meteor over Utah in 2009.



As I said before, I hope I have helped and please continue to provide us with additional information as the story develops.

It is possible if it was a large meteor, that it broke apart as it was coming in. You both could have seen different parts of the same "rock." Or a part of the main rock that did burn up while the main part came in.

This still doesn't explain why there are helicopters and those noises you are hearing in the area. You would think though that there is no way that stuff could be mobilized as quickly as it sounds like it was.

Unless "they" knew it was coming....

Would it be possible for those that did see this object to mark on a map the following:
Your location
Estimate of object's heading
estimate of object's impact location




thanks

if helicopters where already present then there was probably some kind of military test or run, perhaps a damaged jump jet?

This isnt the usual flight path. (I have put that in Blue)

Hope this helps..

Just spotted Shauny`s map as I was about to post this.

It certainly leaves me in no doubt we saw 2 seperate things as Shauny`s one went much farther than mine. My black arrow ends roughly (very roughly) where the object I saw burnt out. Shauny`s carried on for miles.

But, I certainly am sure the 2 objects are related, look at the similarity in the path both of our maps show.

The wee red spot next to the black arrow is roughly where I am.
path of meteor and my location

Google chrome translated it for me, it seems the only reference to meteor showers is in the title, they digress to jibbering about candy sticks.

I cant get a link to the translated page.

Nothing of any consequence I dont think.




I really need to get to sleep...Arrrghh.

Its called a Bolide, or Fireball, and is a fairly common occurrence. The bang was from it breaking the sound barrier as it reentered. I have seen quite a few of those down here in FL as this is a fairly flat area near the equator. The thing that always gets me is how close they look, when in reality they are usually hundreds of miles away.
Here are some videos of other boilides:

Yeah Defcon, the first is REMOTELY similar to what I witnessed.

I did wonder if the apparent close proximity of it was indeed an illusion.


I`m not saying that 100% wasn`t as close as it seemed, but that may explain something about it.

I saw one when I was up in northern US, it looked like it landed a few miles away from where I was. Ended up that it hit a trailer over in Canada! Because of their extremely high altitude, and their brightness, they optically appear to be closer then they are. Most of the ones that I have seen down here in FL are falling into the ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, but they look like you could drive to where they fell at.

You say 100% it didn't burn up...so I'm watching.

If you are mistaken, no worries. It is easy to misjudge things in the sky.

But, you got me interested.

So...where the construction noises are coming from...do you know if there is actual construction going on?

HEY, no matter what happens with this story, thank you so much for reporting your real life testimony of what you witnessed.

Pretty cool.

Wish I saw it.
