I was actually inside my house. But I sonic booms from aircraft feel similar depending how close you are.
Upon reflection, the linebacker analogy was an exageration. A shockwave from a close sonic boom would be better. But the differece was that a shockwave seems to go BOoooommm, this felt like BOOM then silence.
I just remember saying “WHAT THE F^<K WAS THAT!” Then I rmembered that my mother was visiting.
I believe you on that,,, i live in a town where the military and DOE sometimes do test shots. With the right humidity, etc,,, you can be 6 or 7 miles away and get a good shock. They announce it on the news the day before for that very reason, so as not to alarm people.
Very interesting. Thanks.
There was lots of talk about two explosions, 2 seconds apart. Did you hear two booms?
