...residents in Western and Central Massachusetts said they heard a sonic boom or saw a fireball Saturday afternoon (Feb 9).
....
One man....saw a flaming object fly past and land in the woods off Main Road in Montgomery at about 2:15 p.m.
...
The FAA received calls from southern Vermont as well as Western and Central Massachusetts...had no reports of missing aircraft and ...no military activities were being conducted.
