flew over my house at 9:35?   Huh  I've never been so scared.  I dropped to my knees as it whooshed over. I thought it was crashing directly through my house.   I ran to the door to see what it was, and it was gone in an instant.   Silence.  Nothing.   I never heard it coming until it was directly overhead and never heard anything immediately after.   It was unbelievably fast.   My husband was in the basement and he came running upstairs.


Anyone else see or hear this?   I am over near Rives Chapel Church on the ridge. 
Usually I can hear those dang jets well in advance and they lead quite a trailing noise.     No, I am not drinking.  Nor do I drink....but, I may need one if that happens again.

Military plane flying low night ops, I've heard them over our home last year once, maybe 800-1,000 ft above the tree line.  Those engines are loud.  My wife and i heard it coming, went outside and just caught a 2-3 second glimpse 4 engine propeller and was gone behind the tree line in seconds.

We live off of 902 near Bennett and military planes flow low all the time even at night. We see Ospreys, Cargo planes, and fighter jets from time to time. We heard it at the same time you did.

Mary--glad to know it wasn't a UFO!    It came and went so fast, unbelievable.   Thanks for confirming that someone else heard it or saw it!
