I felt a really loud noise a few minutes ago. . .

. . . and it just occurred to me what it was:
Atlantis' return from NASA's first manned flight of the year was marked by its trademark twin sonic booms that were heard from San Diego to Los Angeles. After deploying its parachute, the shuttle came to rest on the concrete runway under mostly sunny skies.

  1. I thought something crashed into or near the house for a second.

  2. I heard it too. Dad had talked about it previously, so I knew what it was when I heard the faint, yet strangely present thud-thud on the bedroom ceiling. If we were in Hollywood it would probably be more scary.
