RemarksAt 2:19, when the object has disappeared from line of sight and behind the tree line, I heard a distant but very audible sonic boom.

It looked at first like a helicopter coming towards me with a light shining down in the distance. Was very bright had several pieces that had broken off and very long visible trail.
