Residents report a bright flash and loud boom occurring at approximately 10:25pm on 8/17/11 in Spokane Valley WA. The sound was heard over a 9 mile radius. It was also felt over quite a distance. Reports describe a very bright flash immediately followed by a loud boom. There is much speculation, but no one knows what it was.     thank you Diane! We need more reports to confirm this event....

Brittany F.-Unknown Location
My family was also a witness to this event. Saw a bright flash (resembling a flash of lightning) in the north sky at 10:30ish  on 8/17/11. Followed by the loudest boom I have ever heard. All of out neighbors came out to see what was happening. There have been 100's of posts on Facebook from people in our area who also heard/saw it.
Thanks!      thank you Brittany! What is your location please?
