I think i may have. Heard/felt the sonic boom from this. I was using the restroom which had no windows of corse. I heard a powerful boom, i even felt it. My step father said he saw a large flash right before the boom. This was just before 10:30 CST. Could that have been that same event? I hope so. I am located in mendota, il. If anyone else witnessed this event please post your info hete, i would like to track it down if it is a meteorite fall near by.

I was on westbound I-70 around Richmond and it appeared west and a little south from me. While it appeared to be very close, I couldn't tell you if it was 10 miles or 100 miles away. Unlike others I have seen, this one appeared to be coming straight down, with a brilliant flash just before disappearing. It was several seconds long with changing colors. Quite impressive.

I was looking south west at the time I saw it in Muncie. It did appear very close. I have never seen one so close..in fact I said to my husband that it looked lower than some airplanes that pass over us all the time on the way to Indy. It was by far the largest, longest lasting one I have seen...that I why I had to look it up to see if anyone else saw it.
