Virginia residents from Hampton Roads to Richmond reported seeing "great balls of fire" lighting up the sky in shades of yellow, white orange and blue. Some described the explosion as sounding like thunder.Several calls came to Richmond International Airport, but spokesman Troy Bell said tower workers did not see anything unusual.
