” The American Meteor Society received more than 160 reports of bright fireball sightings clustered around Lake City, Florida over the weekend. Some witnesses were as far away as Georgia and South Carolina.

  Many reported feeling a sonic boom. AMS says over 15 of the reports described a “window rattling delayed boom.” Scientists believe a meteor caused the phenomenon, ending its flight about 30 miles west from Jacksonville.
