Concurrent Sound
ObservationYes
RemarksIt's heard to describe. I heard a faint zooming noise (after I spotted the object with my eye), which lasted until the object broke up. I'm still confused about it, after all, sound only travels so fast -- I suspect it was real and don't think my mind was playing tricks on me.
