God dammit. I knew it was coming, and it still made me jump.

This clearly was a failed missile launch. I suggest that the Russians are teaming with North Korean to launch long range nukes at the USA. The twin columns of smoke indicate it had two thruster rockets to extend its range. The delayed explosion was the missile being self destructed over the horizon.

And....

Let the conspiracy theorists rant begin!

Likely it had some parts broken or burnt off and trailing behind for the other smaller sonic booms

Wiki speed of sound

and why aircraft can make double booms

Here's the actual video I submitted with the car alarms going off and windows breaking.

Not only did fancylad add "massive asteroid known as 2012 DA14" to my description, but he didn`t even post the right f*cking video, hahaha!!!

What a sonic boom sounds like varies depending on the altitude and what`s surrounding you when you hear it. In a populated area with buildings it will echo off the buildings breaking windows and setting off car alarms like it did here but they sound totally different if you`re in an open field or the ocean on a ship.

A mix of sonic boom and explosion BOOM eh?

It was really far away for that much time between the flash and the bang, a BIG ka-boom indeed!
