Experts are at a loss for logical explanations for the strange booming sounds coming out of the sky in various locations around the world. They can not precisely pinpoint what causes such sounds.
Just last week, residents in Alabama heard an odd ‘boom’ from the sky. Also this Monday, the police were notified of another strange ‘loud boom’ that was heard Lochbuie. So loud was the boom that it even shook houses.
Another ‘boom ‘was heard in Denver this month. And the booms are not just happening in the U.S. Similar sounds have been heard from around the world. 64 of such booms were, in fact, recorded this year.
Experts are starting to speculate where the booms are coming from, suggesting a wide range of explanations from sonic booms to meteorites to controlled detonations of military weapons.
Then there’s the “Bama Boom” that seems to defy explanations.
The Birmingham National Weather Service tweeted: “Loud boom heard: we do not see anything indicating large fire/smoke on radar or satellite, nothing on USGS indicating an earthquake.”
No one can quite figure out the cause, not even Bill Cooke, the head of NASA’s Metroid Environment Office at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville.
Cooke said: “I’m kind of skeptical it could be a (meteor) because there were no reports of a fireball. There are reports of vapor trails.”
And so for now, the booms will remain a mystery and the experts as baffled as before.
