Hi All -
If the sounds are from a HFA, I find it amazing that any sound is even making it back to Earth at all.. think of how far away they are and how little
atmosphere is out there to transport the sound... so to me, that the sound is only localized is not that big a deal... We can have a huge thunderstorm
in Glendale but not hear it in Chandler and they are only 25 miles apart. If the sun keeps acting up and our magnetosphere keeps weakening and these
sounds are from HFAs then larger and larger regions will start hearing the sound.
That would be a prediction of my theory!
However, I have a good idea about why the sound is only localized and it might need an illustration but since I am working now let me try to just
describe what might fit in with my HFA theory... Perhaps the majority of the HFA storm is happening directly above that spot on Earth out in space
and when the HFA is over, the sound is bounced back and directed to one point on earth
First off, let's be clear that I haven't been to Clintonville Wisconsin so I don't have an idea what these booms sound like... but let's use that
current booming event as our example.
In that city, they have not been able to detect any underground source and are calling in seismologists to try to find something out.. I think the
sound will be done and gone by the time they get set up. I imagine the sounds won't happen again in that location for a while at this point unless it
is some other terrestrial source which it certainly could be.
Anyway, I submit that these hot flow anomalies actually are pulling apart our upper atmosphere and opening it up into space and when the atmosphere
returns the sound is mostly directed back to a single point on Earth. Think of the top of our atmosphere as a sort of parabolic reflector for the
sound even though the sound mostly escapes back into space, some is bounced back to earth and as the atmosphere returns to the void caused by the HFA,
the sound is directed back to earth at a single point.
Picture a side angle shot of 20 degrees of arc of the Earth with it's atmosphere thinly held above it, kinda like a 2 layer rainbow... when the HFA
occurs, it takes a bite out of the top layer of our 'rainbow' and then the rest of our atmosphere rushes in to fill the void. When it rushes in and
creates the clap, the top arc of our 'rainbow' directs all of the sound into a single point on Earth.
HEY!!! it's just a theory but thanks for making me come up with some plausible explanation for the localized effect of the sound!
