There is good footage, and I don’t see an “explosion”. There’s a fireball that flares, then dims, while you can still the track of the meteor. So I’m not buying umpty kilotons. I think this was a huge sonic boom.

About 20 years ago I was driving home from work about midnight. I saw one cross in the sky just to my left. Much brighter than the typical shooting star. I also heard it and it was a small one. I got home a minute later and my wife had heard it as had persons in several counties by media reports. It wasn't as bright as this one but certainly bright enough to be well seen. At that time of night not that many saw it though.
As I understand it hunting their impact areas is a profitable venture in the southwestern U.S..
