<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Re: loud boom heard: we do not see anything indicating large fire/smoke on radar or satellite; nothing on USGS indicating an earthquake. We don&#39;t have an answer, and can only hypothesize with you. 1) sonic boom from aircraft; 2) meteorite w/ current Leonid shower?</p>&mdash; NWS Birmingham (@NWSBirmingham) <a href="https://twitter.com/NWSBirmingham/status/930532906585546757?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 14, 2017</a></blockquote>

NASA's Bill Cooke said the mysterious boom's origins are still unknown.That sound may have been caused by a huge supersonic airplane or ground explosion.

Local ABC affiliate QRONOS 16 was all over it.

We're all waiting for a reasonable explanation. In the meantime, enjoy Trey Cochran, who wrote some songs about the most recent #bamaboom.
