Hello ATS, I would like to share this odd happening which just so happened in my hometown of Kokomo! Here is my story, so I'm just sitting on the computer minding my own business and home alone(scary) when all of a sudden it sounded like a nuclear bomb went off in my backyard. Everything shook in my house and a couple pictures fell off the wall. I had a couple of friends call me right after it happened and they asked me if i seen the lights up in the sky. I said negative since im surrounded by trees. Well I guess half of Kokomo seen strange lights in the sky. I'm posting this video and some of you maybe have seen it, others may not have seen it. Its UFO hunters from the history channel. Please take your time to view this video and if you think its interesting you can watch parts 2-5. Trust me ATS this was no sonic boom.

Can't watch the video from work. Is this a recent event? How many Sonic Booms have you heard, and how close?

I have heard a great many, and once in 2002 we had one so large when Fighters were scrambled from Panama City to intercept something that the Sonic Boom in Tallahassee stopped traffic and knocked tires from their racks at my tire store!

The lights don't correspond with a Sonic Boom though, unless it was associated with a meteor or something. Most meteors hit the atmosphere at an angle, but I suppose if one perpendicular it would make quite a flash and a bang!

I used to live in ol' Kokomo!

I watched that show too, that stuff happened right after I left! Kokomo was a fun place to see stuff in the night sky, next time you are out and it is a clear night (Late spring, early summer, right now!) Look NW a little south of Grissom, I would see "orange lights" there at least once a year.

Most likely flares, though it is fun to speculate. Specially in the nice weather, before the humidity sets in.

Gregorio, Every night that is clear I do go lay on a blanket under the stars. I do see strange things in the sky. The other night my and two friends were star gazing out at the reservoir and seen 6 floating starlike objects all heading Northwest. Im not sure if they were satellites or not but what are the chances of seeing 6 satellites pass by all going the same direction in less then 20 minutes? I'm hoping to have a high quality camera soon so i can start uploading some visuals.

I live about 15 miles from Grissom AFB, I've heard a good amount. You will have to see the video to believe what I'm saying. No one thought this was a sonic boom. It sounded like a giant meteor crash landed on earth =0, The lights I mentioned is what people saw when they walked out their house and expected to see a mushroom cloud.

15 miles! That's real close to where I was living!

(Cassville to be exact, right on 31 and the county line.)

I made a thread on the orange lights I saw, I will dig up a link shortly.

And, I eagerly await shots of my old stomping grounds!

EDIT (To Add)
Well I scoured the site for my old thread, and 'tis not here. It was pretty old though, so maybe it was deleted. Or my memory is broken, probably the latter.

Anyway, I saw lights in the sky. They were the same color orange as a street lamp. I saw about 6 or 7 of them (hard to remember) other witnesses reported 12 or 14 (again, hard to remember). They were due west, from both my perspective (Cassville Market) and from (Northwestern Senior High School, SW of my perspective).

I heard of other accounts as well, all reporting them at due west. 2 of which were in Indian Heights (South of my perspective)

I wish I had been there for the booming one, that would have been the awesome.

I am also from the kokomo area.I was at work at night when all of this went on, so unfortunately I didn't know anything about it until I saw the news reports in the morning when I got home.
