forgive me the delay.... here is the information on the research article
that pertains to hearing sounds from fireball re-entries. These are called
electrophonic sounds. I haven't kept up with the field, so I don't know if
there is anything more recent - if there is, I'd like to know about it,

"Progress in Explaining the Mysterious Sounds Produced by Very Large Meteor
Fireballs" by Colin S.L. Keay

Journal of Scientific Exploration, Vol 7, No 4, pp337-354.  1993

Hope this helps for those that are curious.

Good observing,
