NASA scientist: Va. mystery boom may be meteor
Thursday - 5/12/2011, 7:03am EDT
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A NASA scientist says a loud boom that rattled Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore might have been caused by a meteor.
Residents in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Suffolk and other areas reported hearing the boom Tuesday night. Some said it shook their homes.
NASA scientist Joe Zawodny tells WAVY-TV that the boom is most consistent with a meteor entering the Earth's atmosphere. He says the boom could be associated with a meteor shower that peaked last week.
Zawodny says an object as small as a golf ball could cause a loud boom if it was traveling fast enough.
Pam Trotter of Virginia Beach tells WAVY that the boom felt almost like an earthquake.
