Some kind of sonic boom followed by rumble.

Below is the exact description I sent in an email to george noory of coast to coast am the evening after the incident which took place just after midnight on christmas night. I decided to finally report this after hearing of so many other incidents that sounded almost exactly like mine which occurred more and more in the months and years after my experience and came to believe it may be related to the UFO phenomenon.

On Christmas night I was sweeping my sons floor and I hear a huge explosion which scared me at first but I immediately assumed it was a large firework from someone messing around and continued sweeping but then immediately realized it was still making an after sound like when you hear the rumble of thunder after a big lightning strike. It was loud enough to set off a bunch of car alarms and rattle my windows. When I thought it was thunder I promptly ran outside thinking it might start pouring rain and I had to cover my motorcycle.

So I ran out there looked up and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was one of the clearest nights you could ever find in south Florida. It couldn't have been a lightning strike with a clear sky. I know it wasn't fireworks because I know exactly what those sound like up close. My only other thought was a sonic boom which I have heard before but there were no jets or jet sounds, I didn't even see any regular planes in the sky just stars and I looked very carefully. My neighbors heard it to but no one had any idea what it was.

Just thought my story should be out there and wondering how many other people may have heard this boom.
