Mysterious BOOM heard, could it be the Aurora?

Hey all, I thought I would post this here seeing most people polled in my area think this was caused by an airplane of sorts (or even a UFO?) and would like to get some opinions from the Aircraft Experts here.

Here are the stories so far from the News......
Questions swirl over what went 'boom' over Northwest
Was mysterious sound result of supersonic jet flight?
Guard: Our planes did not cause mystery sound

Now I don't know anything about the Aurora except from seeing some drawings of it in Popular Science or the likes, but I have worked at the Oregon Air Guard and have seen those F-15's talked about in action and have never heard a sound like the one that happened on Saturday the 11th. The sound to me was a deep rumble, 2 of them with each lasting about 6-7 seconds. The ground didn't shake where I was at but it "felt" to me like it originated from the sky.

So far there are still no reports of any earthquakes, or something from Mt.St.Helens, or Meteors falling in the area.

The article also said this happened in Florida and Maine. Anyone from those areas have any comments on if this is the same type of occurrence mentioned?

Sonic booms are actually two booms, just some of them are so close together that it sounds like one. One as the nose goes through the sound barrier, one as the tail does. The Florida one could be F-22s, or F-15s. Tyndal is a USAF flight training base for both of those airframes. I'm not sure if anything is still in Maine. There are quite a few planes that can go supersonic though, so without more than just the reports of booms, it would be hard to say what it was.

It could be a secret aircraft which might be called "Aurora" in much the same way that it could be a Dolly Parton being put into orbit by a burst boobjob.....bbooooooommmmmmmmm.......

But there is nothing from the news reports that convincingly points towards a secret aircraft of any sort being to blame, let alone the Aurora legend which may/may not exist.

So is a SonicBoom an actual Boom, or could it be a rumble with no boom? Now when I say rumble I mean like the ground shaking type, but in this case the ground did not shake, at least where I live, and the rumble was heard from SW Washington all the way to the Oregon Coast. Not typical of a SonicBoom from what I have read.

Artillery? In the right weather conditions that can be heard for miles and miles.

We used to have reports of small earthquakes all the time around here. Coffee mugs shaking, and windows rattling. It turned out to be the HiANG F-4s going supersonic about 150 miles off shore. If they're far enough out, then you'll just get the ground shake and may not hear the boom from it. The effects travel through the ground farther than the air. That's one reason that supersonic transports aren't practical right now. They can't go supersonic within like 200 miles of land.

I don't know much about aircraft but i walked outside about a hour ago and seen something looked like it was going strait up leaving some kind of loop da loop trail

I just now clicked on the link for more info on the Aurora and it took me to a page on AboveTopSecret, is this something integrated in Explorer from being a member here or is ATS the "Leading Authority" on this subject and the news station where I live is helping spread the ATS Fame? (sorry, this is of topic, but I find it kinda cool
)

I am assuming it is prolly gone by now, but if not can you grab a pic of it and post it?

Artillery I think would have a popping type noise not a rumble, but I could be wrong, unless that is the detonation was underground?

The SR-71 used to fly out of Beale AFB California, and flew near LA all the time. They were responsible for many of the booms in that area. NASA was also testing an engine for the X-33 out of Edwards AFB for several years.

Sorry no pic its dark here now Tyndall air force base is not far from here probably something from there

I wish I could reproduce this Rumble that happened, it would answer a lot of questions. I am actually surprised noone has come forth with a recording of it yet, there has to be at least one person at that moment it happened who recorded something, it was such a large area.

Try checking the seismic readings. Sonic booms show up on those, and have a pretty distinctive signature.

Good idea Zaph, I am going to contact the USGS here and see if their equipment showed anything unusual that day.

Just to add to this story. I guess the us isnt the only place that these mystery booms are being heard. There are also reports of it being heard over isreal a while ago which makes things even stranger. Im sure it has something to do with aircraft but what exactly is another question.


Mystery Boom traced to soundwave

From old news

Mysterious Blasts Rattle Isreal

not necessarily Aurora but could be some other supersecret aircraft. Got any seismograph readings to determine the speed.

So the sound wave originated in a live firing area of ocean, lol. It doesn't take a brainbox to realise that it's probably an explosion caused by someone dropping a bomb from an aeroplane. Maybe a very big bomb, like a daisy cutter.

No real reason to susect that it has anything to do with Aurora or other secret plane regardless of whether Aurora actually exists.

I posted something in the wrong thread. Does anyone have the USGS link for real-time seismo info? I'd like to look at the page.
