Non-sonic boom as in it did NOT make a sound. There was only the rattling of the thousands of houses in the area - almost none of the some 400 responders to the local press had heard any sound whatsoever. In other words, we felt the aftereffects of what might have been a VERY large, very close sonic boom - but without the sound. Does that make sense?
he QSST, though it shares its general shape with the Concorde is less than half the size and uses fine-tuned aerodynamics to control the pressure generated as the plane displaces air at supersonic speeds. With air disturbances along the craft evened out, the QSST generates more shockwaves of smaller magnitude rather than two explosive reports. Tom Hartmann, the program manager at Lockheed, expects the boom to be imperceptible-quieter than a kite flying overhead.

It's amazing how far civilization has come. What people could only dream of thousands of years ago is a REALITY for us. We truly are in the end of times...
The EIS also offers one of the most comprehensive and detailed documents about the Pacific Northwest ocean and its creatures. The report is found at www.nwtrangecomplexeis.com
The Website contains an audio and movie presentation that explains why the training is needed by all branches of the service and how the Navy seeks to be good stewards of the environment.
"Realistic training is the most crucial asset available for training members of the Armed Services," the audio says.
The Navy has now extended the public comment period twice for a process that critics say has been going on "under the radar."

I had a very similar experience... I actually live in San Clemente, right over the hills from me is the northern part of Pendleton and I can see many helicopters and sometimes F18's flying over my back yard. We often hear booms from live fire and every once in a while sonic booms. This was not any of those things. A low frequency, pressure change that was similar to someone throwing open a door. As for all of the theories about road construction or mining, there is nothing like that around here. Has anyone thought about the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant? That is close to here.
As an idea, someone should check police and fire scanner archives at the time and date of this unknown event.

Just had another event here at about 123pm. More of a boom this time and less of a rattle. A couple minutes later I heard a jet go by in the near distance.
