It's hard to say with the camera, not facing the direction. Sounds reverberate in a city, and we often don't get to see where the shells are landing at night.

My idea will be flawed if the shells are landing a long way out, because the projectile would arrive before the explosion, or muzzle blast would be heard.

I can only calculate if the rounds are landing near the camera, and even then it's a rough estimate.

Nope, I can hear sirens, drones and a helicopter.

And more artillery fire.

Around 6-7km? By the deep, metalic echoes of the launch blast, I figure it could be naval gunboats? Any experts?

Btw. I can tell you first hand (have lived through bombardment 20 years ago), these have some massive destructive power. I would be scared #less without a deeep shelter.

Most definitely. In the past 15 minutes, the artillery fire has been quite frequent

Did anyone else just hear that reverb noise after the blast?

Why is russia tv feeding different audio into a dull video? Is this just publicity to "liven" the fight

There is about 2 sec delay between the pop from the sea & the thud when it hits #Gaza

I'm listening to the stream from that Harry Fear guy, and I'm hearing so many drones it sounds like people are cutting their grass, I've heard artillery fire that I can only say sounds like either tanks or cannons coming in pretty regularly, and I hear what sounds like a lot of screaming in the background.

The screaming is really, really low like its a long way off. Could be the sounds of some kind of machinery.

I counted a 3 second fly time from first thud to first boom. ( 5541ft)
1,847 ft/s)

5 seconds this round. (9235ft)

We don't have angle, so it could be closer than this. I can not see where the rounds are landing so they could be closer than that, given sound travels at an average of 1126 ft/s. so my rough estimates are the first unit is +-5000 or so feet from it's target. Unit 2 is +-9000 from it's target. We can not see the target so my estimates don't do much for I us now that I think of it.

The consensus now is that the fire we are hearing is from naval gun ships? or is that in addition to mobile artillery? Just trying to understand!

5 booms in under 1 minute.

6... 7... 8..

3694 these are my estimates for American 155 only.

If this turns out to be a Naval Bombardment it can be incredibly different. As well, this is a shot in the dark(no pun intended)
