I used to live in Eureka/Arcata, went to HSU and worked for a number of years at a lab there so I am familiar with the territory.
The fact that someone from Trinidad hasn't heard any of these booms probably rules out meteors/asteroids or earth tremors and pops, as those would
tend to be seen, felt, and heard for many miles.
Flashes of light and smoke being seen, without any evidence of trails in the sky...I am with PennyLemon, I think it might be some industrious students
playing around with fire. School started just before Sept. 8, which is when the first booms were reported, and the location mentioned by one poster
of an explosion north of Bayview, possibly near the North jetty is legit...because...well, when *I* was a student, I used to head out to the Somoa
dunes there and shoot guns and blow stuff up myself (we need a sheepish icon!).
There is/was a gun range somewhere around Samoa on the North side of the main road that is near a beach and it is easy to sneak into. Not many people
live close by, and not many police patrols go there - and even if they did, it would be really easy to evade them on foot because you can just walk
the beach for miles. And, it was also a notorious party spot. A classic place for school kids to go party, smoke some J's, and blow (up) some
reefs...I'd go fingerprint the entire Chemistry department, myself!
