Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: Suffolk (city of), VA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 5 sec.
Characteristics: The object left a trail, The object made a sound
cork-screw contrail, low-boom sound flash

Dear sir, I saw a flash of light with a cork-screw contrail that lasted about 2 seconds after the flash passed over my house. Then I heard a low boom that lasted about 2 sec. thereafter. The boom sound echoed twice afterwards in another area from where I live.

This would appear to me to be something like a plasma-gas experiment which uses a new kind of engine up-dated technology. The reason I am stating this is because of the speed of the flash as well as the boom sounds that ocurred during and after my sighting.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the description is not inconsistent with a short-duration meteoric event. PD))
