Daylight fireball explodes over Oklahoma and Texas, sonic boom reported


A daylight fireball was recorded streaking Oklahoma and Texas around 21:16 UTC (16:16 CDT) on March 13, 2018. The object turned ‘blindingly bright’ before it disappeared and was followed by a sonic boom.

Numerous residents across central Oklahoma and northern Texas reported a ‘shaking boom’ shortly after 16:00 CST yesterday.

Several hours later, a video emerged showing a very fast daylight fireball over Plano, northern Texas, leading authorities to conclude it as a source of the boom.

The American Meteor Society (AMS) received 31 reports about this fireball.

Eyewitnesses described the object as light blue to green. Some said a large green flash was produced in the sky, followed by a loud sonic boom.

One Twitter user said that several of his friends in Oklahoma saw a flash and then heard a sonic boom almost 2 minutes later.
