This report has been linked to the following event: Event 5499-2020
NameRachel A
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI honestly don't know if this was an bolide or fire ball as it we where inside and heard and felt a massive Explosive boom and seen a brilliant white light light up our north and west facing windos threw there blinds! It was a massive force knocked my husband off his feet. We and many neighbors called 911! As we thought a bomb or gas leak or plane was the cause. But fire chief and police investigated and found no damages no impact no flames. Gas company found no gas leaks. Electric company had no transformer issues. Airport public saftey officer confirmed absooutly know documented accidents or incidents that could have explained the event. No siemic activity. Its so strange and disturbing the fire chief called the news and they did an interview with my husband and I and spoke to neighbors who confirmed as well. Boom was heard over 20 miles away in Manhattan montana. And all across belgrade and areas. We have been search for security footage or eye witness that was out side with no luck. Ive found no reports of bolide in the area. Meteorologist confirmed clear skys as does doplar raider so no chance it was storm related. Its not a sky quake as those don't have bright burst of white light. A reporter has asked airport to check there air traffic raider to see if they can see anything on it ive not heard back yet. (If seen fore Valles some red and orange and some blue green in my past but this was completely baffling. The times I've provided are mst. Also I have full recording of 911 call reporter calls and airport calls reordered and owned by me I also have recording of the news interview that was aired. Fire chief has deemed the event is factual but reason is losted and unknown/unexplained im making this report to seek your professional oppion on the matter as to could this have been a previously unreported bolide dispite 0 damages found yes the smoke wave was stronger then the 5.2 earthquake we where in back in 2018/19. please excuse my typos im 32 yrs old but have inflammatory arthritis and nerve damage in my hands I would preffer to be contacted via phone at 4062239096
