I have just become a member of ATS after reading this thread. I am some-what suspicious about what happened yesterday in the UK also.
I live in Swindon, Wiltshire and a few minutes before I heard the sonic boom I sat and watched my clean pile of washing slide off of my table (I was
over the other side of the room at the time). I then looked at some books on the arm of the sofa in front of the table and for some strange reason, I
felt as if they were about to slide of too. A few minutes later I heard the loud bang, which I thought was a very big bout of thunder at first. After
speaking to my partner about 20 minutes later, I realised that that was probably unlikely to have been the case! He said to me that the whole factory
that he works in, literally shook and that birds appeared from nowhere acting frantically. He did say something about a sonic boom to me and told me
to check it out on the internet and that's when I discovered the news stories.
As I said previously, I am quite suspicious about it all, as is my partner. I understand that there is photographic evidence and a witness of the
incident but even though this is the case, something about it all seems a bit odd.
I have also only just become aware of the earthquake in the UK. This happened a few minutes previous to the sonic boom and could explain why my
washing slid of off the table. I wrote a comment on the BBC website yesterday evening and mentioned this, but my comment hasn't yet been
I also read a comment somewhere where somebody had said they had seen jets low in the sky in hours previous to this.
It is odd that we had an earthquake (despite the geological society saying that there hadn't been any) and then a few minutes later we hear a sonic
boom. Maybe I'm just being too sceptical?!
