Were they meteors? A comet? UFOs? People from Maryland to Hampton Roads heard loud explosions and saw brilliant, streaking lights in the sky Sunday night. There was no immediate explanation, the National Weather Service office in Wakefield said. The Virginia Beach 911 center had numerous calls waiting just before 10 p.m., a supervisor said. The Weather Service said reports were made from Dorchester County, Md., to the Virginia/North Carolina border. People said they saw a streak in the sky and heard an explosion. http://hamptonroads.com/2009/03/streaking-lights-explosions-reported-all-along-coast I heard the explosion last night and thought it was just thunder. Others that were outside saw something that didn't look like lightning. Most are saying it was a meteor, but there are some that say they saw a military plane following it. It probably was a meteor. Did anyone else hear or see anything?
