I came across this forum by Google search for sonic booms / Topsail Island, NC where I have lived for the past 7 years (near the swing bridge). These
booms started several months ago and at first, I just thought large fireworks and/or military. I have heard sonic booms on many occasions and for my
old ears, these are different; namely a dull boom rather that a sharp crack followed by a booming noise.
The Camp Lejeune Marine base is due north in Jacksonville, NC but their VERY large field training exercise areas (forest & fields) are located
northwest roughly 12 miles away. This direction (from me) is where I'm hearing them, not from the base nor the ocean/beachfront where I live.
From my perspective/location these sound very much like one of the large fireworks with that "boom" sound with no large flash displayed. I don't
know much about fireworks so I hope I'm making sense. Anyway, when indoors it sounds like someone slamming a large car door so hard that it rattles
my windows. Times are typically somewhat regular,,, either afternoon, say 4:00pm and many times again a few hours later. Tonight it started at, say
I don't have any theories as to what's going on but if you live anywhere around here, go outside at the times given and hear it for yourselves. Very
strange and over time, unnerving. In another post here a man seams to "feel" something is not quite right that's taking him to the flight or fight
mode, a very bad place I've been to before. To him I say; I'm starting to feel the same way except I will chose to fight!
For skeptics and theorist I'll say; listen for yourselves! These are not thunder or quakes and if so, how do you explain the hundreds I've heard
over the months and all seam to be on schedule? Also explain why they all sound the same, never a "rolling-thunder" sound but just one solid boom at
It would be very easy to triangulate where these are coming from given enough men. With all the manpower our local base has; this makes me believe
it's the military doing secret weapons testing, but that's just my theory...
