The consensus is that it was a meteor crashing to earth. Martin Griffith reports for AP via Christian Science Monitor:

A loud explosion heard across much of Nevada and California on Sunday morning rattled homes and prompted a flood of calls to law enforcement agencies on both sides of the Sierra Nevada, some reporting fireball sightings.

The sound and the light show were likely caused by a meteor that entered Earth’s atmosphere, astronomers said…

Some people reported seeing a brilliant light streak across the sky at the same time. Sightings occurred over roughly a 600-mile line across the two states, including Reno, Elko and North Las Vegas in Nevada, and the San Francisco, Sacramento and Bakersfield areas in California.

Astronomers said they believe the mysterious light was a fireball, which is a very bright meteor. It will take time to determine the path of the fireball and where it broke up, they added…

  1. A warning bomb cover up?

  2. An Earth flare…kind of like a solar flare, but caused by the Earth’s electromagnetic field getting snarled, rather than the suns. Strange that Earth flares don’t get very much attention considering the amount of evidence behind the mechanism for such phenomena. John Keel would have been ecstatic to learn of the connection between Earth flares and ultraterriestial appearances.

  3. Thank God NORAD was all over this.

  4. I recall that a little while before the Space Shuttle was slated to be decommissioned, a group of scientists quietly rang an alarm about earth-orbiting space debris. 

    They said that the space junk put up there by space programs had reached “terminal density” or something like that: there was so much of it that it was just knocking bigger pieces of junk off our satellites. 

    Those pieces knock off bigger pieces and eventually you get every satellite going to pieces and taking out every other satellite, until they all either fall apart or fall to Earth.

    I’ve noticed reports like thiscoming in from Russia and the EU, as well as China, some even on disinfo itself in the past oh…12 months, say.

    My money’s on that as the true cause, but I’m not going to waste any energy arguing about it. If that is the case, I’m happy. No functioning military satellites means far fewer useful nuclear warheads. Fewer precision-guided foreign wars, too, perhaps.
