So me and some friends some friends and I were sitting around my house last night, when we heard a VERY LOUD booming sound that sounded like it couldn't have come from more than 100 feet away. It made everyone jump, and the people facing the window said they saw a bright flash. We went outside immediately and there was a puff of smoke sort of billowing around in the street, but that was it. What the heck could this have been??
It probably wasn't: -- a car backfiring, nobody heard a car going by at the time -- a gunshot, otherwise there probably would have been cops out shortly, plus there was a flash -- an explosion, as there was no evidence of anything having exploded -- fireworks, as there was no strange smell or anything... just some smoke
