Ok, this happened last night, and it could definately do with an explanation if anyone has one.
Last night, around 8:10 pm, I heard a large explosion in the sky(?). I went outside, but after a few minutes we heard no sirens, so we guessed it probably wasn't in the town about 4 miles to the west of us.
At around 10:00 pm, the county's local radio station (Norfolk) went off air, as did Suffolks and essex's. These went off for about one hour, with only the one at cambridge still on.
At 11:00 pm my uncle and some of his friends, who were camping near ipswich, heard a large explosion, and saw lights flashing in the sky, in no pattern. It wasn't lightning, as there were no crackles on the radio (as there is with lightning) and the explosions heard were definitely not thunder.
I cannot think of any explanations, as it cannot have been lightning and meteor showers cannot be heard.
Oh, and there was an unexplained explosion heard over the town about 15 years ago as well, which was never explained.

apex well this does sound interesting if you believe that this may have been something in the sky.
What i suggest is that you try and find out as much as you can, ask around and see if anyone else seen or heard anything, look for some ufo sights on the net that may cover activity in your area,
Do you know if your area is a hotspot for this kind of thing?
Anypast events like this?
post any findings you get,
RAF Bentwarters an ex American Air Base was located in the part of the counrty mentioned. A well documented UFO incident was recoreded by the militery base,basically the Americans had nuclear weapons stored there unknown to the brittish government at the time. The UFO nuterlized the weapons rendering them useless, this has also happened in other parts of the world and knowbody knows who is behind it!
I live in North Wales also and last year the whole town heard a megga explosion coming from the woods area. The police and fire department went to investigate, the whole town shook like it was an earth quake and a recording on the rector scale was made the explsion was that intense but nothing was found!
I dont think fireworks can disable radio stations, so something odd has taken place! What do the radio stations say? Did they hear anything? You do need to investigate further, I would!

Almost every day you see a lot of military aircraft in the area, so my theory is that some type of test was going on at night. It was a clear winter night, with few people in the area and close to some big bases.
There are several big bases in the area including
"RAF Lakenheath is one of the largest US Air Force bases in Europe with nearly 5,000 US Service personnel and home to F-15 precision strike fighters."
"RAF Mildenhall, situated 20 miles from Cambridge, is a staging post for US flights to Europe. It also acts as a base for special operations, reconnaissance and intelligence."
RAF Coltishall www.raf.mod.uk...
and others too all within a small area close to the coast.
The area has been used in the past for top secret tests, so I'm putting it down to that.
