I have these "pops" sometimes, on occasion they are quite loud and unsettling but usually they're just loud enough to make me ask what the heck was
that... No idea what causes it. On the louder ones it did seem to be accompanied by a slight brightening of everything but I wouldn't call it a
"flash" of light in my case. Usually happens when I'm going to sleep but it's also happened while I was wide awake sitting at my computer.
I also, more than usual lately, wake myself up just as I'm drifting off to sleep by jerking half my body around like a big muscle spasm. Used to be
just my leg, now it seems like more. A little frustrating for me but it seems to scare the crap out of my dog who likes to sleep on the bed.
I don't know about the OBE correlation... I used to be pretty big into lucid dreaming and dreams in general (something I'm trying to get back into)
and although I can't remember these pops ever happening while attempting WILD or dream incubation, I did sometimes hear sounds like buzzing,
whistling, faint music, muffled voices, and experience the sensation of falling. I bring this up because some people say lucid dreaming and OBEs are
related. I don't personally think it is but I'm not experienced with OBEs so take that how you will. I think it could be a similar process with a
different result, or people mistaking one for the other, I'm not sure.

The thing that made it seem to not be a dream noise is that the noise was not incorporated into my dream. I woke immediately with the thought, "that
was not part of my dream. I need to wake up because I am in danger."
I've had this happen several times but with voices. One particular time the voice sounded like my (ex) girlfriend YELLED my name, sounded like she
was standing next to the bed. I jumped up and looked around, nothing. I groggily stumbled through the house and she had passed out on the couch with
the TV on so it wasn't her. That one still confuses me, but then again a lot of weird things happened in that house.
