Remarks-
Delayed Sound
ObservationYes
RemarksAprox 1-2 minutes later I heard the accompanying sonic boom. It wasn't loud enough to break a window or anything, but it was definitely noticeable. Based on timing of the sonic boom, I calculate it to be at an altitude of about 10 miles up, at least. That would put it in the upper Troposphere or lower Stratosphere.
