The terrifying noises, Mysterious loud booms as “Bama Boom”, have been recorded from the Middle East. And the East Midlands to Australia, with the majority heard on America’s eastern coast.
The boom has left experts shock with causes ranging from supersonic aircrafts to meteors exploding in the atmosphere.
The latest boom was reported from the US state of Alabama and Idaho in the last week.
The Mysterious loud booms has left experts Shock:-
Mysterious booming sounds have been recorded from different places across the globe leaving people as well as experts baffle.
We do not see anything indicating large fire/smoke on radar or satellite. Nothing on USGS indicating an earthquake, the Birmingham National Weather Service said in a tweet.
While the cause remains unknown, some explanations include a sonic boom from an aircraft. Or a meteorite from the Leonid shower. But Nasa has since cast doubt on these explanations.
Bill Cooke, head of Nasa’s Meteoroid Environment Office said, The boom could cause by a supersonic aircraft. A ground explosion or a bolide, a large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere unrelated to the Leonid shower.
The noise, which pick up by the US Geological Survey, noted that the boom was not the result of an earthquake.
The boom may cause by a military flight by a supersonic jet. They said, although the US Air Force is yet to confirm this.
The Bama Boom is just one of many mysterious booms hear worldwide this year.
According to some reports, this is not the first time the mysterious sound hear. In 2017 alone, 64 booms hear worldwide. Main locations including Michigan, Lapland, St Ives, Swansea and Yorkshire.
On October 10, a similar sound left Cairns locals confused. Many suggest it was an FA-18 Hornet plane was hear flying.
“I pulled up home and I heard two massive bangs, maybe a second apart. And then the sky lit up again. I just felt the whole earth shake twice,” he added.
NASA Analysis Report on Mysterious loud booms
NASA’s meteor scientists will continue to analyse new data in hopes of determining the cause of the boom.
Two weeks later, another boom hear over the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia at the same time a blue meteor pass across the sky.
“These Mysterious loud booms got bigger and bigger and it was just this big flash across the sky and there were sparks coming off it”.
Ground explosions also make for a prime suspect, but it’s unclear how a ground disruption could explain the worldwide distribution of the sounds.
