Sonic Boom over Illinois Wisconsin border
Dunno what it was, but whatever the hell it was was moving. Heard a nice low rumbling noise like someone dragging a garbabe can down the driveway at 11:57 AM. But when I went to look, there was nobody there. No cars or anything on the street that could make that kind of sound. But somehow I did manage to notice quite a unique contrail going from west to east with hardly any dissipation on the western end. Usually contrails fade out somewhere between 1/3 to 1/2 across the sky. The whole thing looked pretty fresh and had a "- - - -" kind of pattern to it. Usually one doesn't see that kind of thing around these parts.
