Not to get too excited just yet, but, given the data provided, and the the reputation of the Scripps Institute as the provider; I'd say we might just
have firm evidence of an opertational "Trans-atmospheric Vehicle".
The linked article states that "dozens" of similar events have been recorded in the roughly the same area. The area of these occurances is
controlled by the military, off limits to both civilian and commercial traffic. It also states that these phenomena are "atmospheric", rather than
oceanic or terrestrial, in origin.
The speculation in the article that these incidents might be tied to some sort of meteoric activity is both specious and telling: to suggest tthat
this area off the coast of Southern California is some sort of "Meteorite 'Hot Zone'" is silly and far too easy to disprove. Natural events like
the fall of a meteorite do not occur in convieniently specific geographic locales.
However, "man-made meteors", such as an experimental trans-atmospheric craft, could of course be guided to re-enter at a specific point over the
Pacific, far from prying eyes and credible witnesses.
I am not an acoustical engineer, but is it possible to calculate the strength of the sonic wave from the given data, and perhaps, from that data, the
hypothetical speed and direction of such a craft? Given possible course and speed, could we perhaps generalize a likely destination in say, Southern
Nevada... or somewhere in Utah?
