Object over New Orleans streaked out of sight in a flash followed with a sonic boom.

This morning at 1:30 am I walked outside my house with a friend and he made a comment about how clear the sky was. When I looked up we both saw a bright flash of light and something streaked across the sky toward the southeast followed by what could only have been a sonic boom. It happened so fast we were both stunned. We couldn’t believe what we saw. If it were something man made it was incredibly fast. It disappeared out of sight too fast for us to see what it was. It looked like a shooting star only going out of the atmosphere. Flash streak BOOM!
