Meteor above the Sierra Nevada

Sunday morning just before 8 AM there was a sonic boom.  People in California and Nevada felt it, some believing it was an earthquake.  Others were lucky enough to see a meteor racing through the sky.  Meteors are not uncommon but one as bright as this in the bright of day is.  We hear an eyewitness account.
