Meteor Sound

This is in response to meteor seen and heard within a short period. I was on a caldera (extinct volcano) at about 10,000 feet watching a meteor shower. I heard two meteors at the time of their dissipation. Sounded like distant thunder (maybe it was!) or maybe it was a large meteor that had fell earlier, or maybe the meteors upon hitting the earth's atmosphere had generated a electromagnetic frequency that effected the human brain and auditory system and caused the sound instantly instead of the delay caused by sound waves. Whatever it was, I heard it.
