Yesterday, Dan and I were driving back to Leonard Creek Ranch after counting Sage Grouse high up in the Pine Forest Range, when all of sudden there was a bright streak across the sky! It was really big and very impressive.
The Reno Gazette Journal reports; "A sonic boom that rattled windows and nerves over hundreds of square miles on both sides of the Sierra Sunday morning was most likely caused by a meteor breaking up over the Sierra...Witnesses from Winnemucca to Bakersfield, Calif., reported a bright object streaking across the sky from east to west, with the sonic boom happening moments later." Dan and saw it, but we missed out on hearing the sonic boom."
