Hi! I live in Southern CA and at about 2:30 this morning, August 23, 2012, I saw a huge flash of light in the sky that looked like lightning but was accompanied by a large explosion sound at the same time...almost like a cannon fire/ sonic boom/ explosion. Can't find any reports on what it was, and never heard anything else all night.
Anyone know what happened?
