I was standing out in front of my grandparents home in Stockton, CA. where I used to live. I was having a cigarette outside. Just a regular day...
I heard this extremely loud rumbling of a sound, almost like a thunder storm but, deeper pitched. It was then I was looking up and saw the sky ripple and change color all in a second or two. The sky changed from a neon purple to an amber color, and then back to normal all in the same moment. It looked like the sky changed for a second. The best way I can describe the way the sky moved, it was like a boat creating a ripple/wake as it moves through water, in the same way I saw the sky ripple. The whole sky, not just the sky directly overhead of me..... The whole sky...
I instantly knew this was something extraordinary. I looked around me to see if anyone else saw what I had just seen. No neighbors were outside, no cars driving by. I knew this was something big in the sense that it had to have been seen by everyone outside at the moment. It left a greyish orange trail behind it... Astonished at what I had just seen I went onto my laptop to try to figure out what it was.....
I couldn't find much information at all about what I had just witnessed besides what's known as a sonic boom from a jet. But it was not the same as a jet sonic boom. It made a loud rumbling sound followed by a fading crackle sound. I just knew this had to be seen or at least heard by more people than myself.
I got back online around 9 or 10 to see if a news team had anything on what took place that late afternoon... No story at all.
I do not know what this was. I experienced this a couple years ago now, and it still bothers me that I do not know what it was.
If you guys have any information as to what this may have been I would really appreciate it. I have only told a couple people about this. Just looking for some kind of explanation. Thanks again.
