just read that all and all i have to say is wow, i am not buying the kid bomb story at all, i have made my fair share of bombs. From what i have *tested* all the bombs i used to make that would cause very loud noise would send every car alarm off for what seemed like forever. Also i dont know what it would take for a bomb to be heard 30+ miles away, also when you said you went to the source, how did you know it was the source? Did you return? Next time you go see if you can get someone from the news to go with you. As to being followed, you might want to ge careful, check out your window fequently, just keep tabs, dont go to the feds anymore, i doubt that they would catch themselfs.

I read today on WRIC 8's website that (see link for story) they are getting some equipment to take seismic readings. Funny thing is, they are going to be getting it from the National Guard...hmmm.

Booms still going on?

Every damn day, unfortunately.

Should put an interesting spin on the meteor shower tonight though, lol.

I can only guess, but I would think you might be hearing sonic booms from flyovers
at Norfolk Naval Base or other possible military testing.

any thing new here, what happen with those siesmic readings?

It appears that the teenagers were not responsible for the mystery booms at all. Although they will have to do some comunity service for their science experiments, it has now been shown that the booms were caused by micro-earthquakes.

It's a wonder, no one had mentioned this in all the posts I've read. It's been quite interesting to read everyone's ideas on the cause of the "booms", but that is the first thing that came to my mind. The last thing to shatter windows around here were the 16 inch guns at Dahlgren, and that was over a decade ago. (However, folks wouldn't be completely out of their gourds to blame the local Air Force base, as many people do already complain about the F-16's which are scrambled intermittently. However, they do not tend to shake the ground.)

It is interesting to note - the recent activity in the "other hemisphere" may cause one to wonder, is the Earth simply groaning as its plates are shifting around? It would appear that a great amount of pressure may have been relieved on Dec 26, 2004. Have these "booms" been witnessed since? I would only be curious to know whether these incidences decrease - or increase - in frequency relative to that date.

Some Christians believe that this may be signifying the beginning of the End - Revelations, for anyone who has read that chapter (I personally have not). Just more interesting fodder for thought.

There are similar occurences all around the world, however a period of these booms come to mind that occurred in India last year. They supposedly ruled out seismic activity and felt that the booms were being caused by meteorites exploding in the atmosphere. I was never really satisfied with this explanation as the booms were only occurring at night and in the same province. The odds of this being space debris just seemed to high for me. It really makes me wonder now if these Indian blasts were seismic in origin, and if so, is there some way to tell if they are precursors to the big 9.0 that caused the tsunami on December 26th, 2004.

Just read the whole thread... we get them here in Casa Grande Arizona as well. They seem to originate southeast of the main part of town (Where I live you can hear rippling boom boom booms occasionally and feel a pressure wave of air hit you) However my roommates girlfriend is a home health aide and one of her clients live about 20 miles closer to where the booms come from. The other day a series of booms went off while she was over there, The clients phone went dead the lights flickered and the tv went crazy for about 30 seconds before to about 20 seconds after. This occured multiple times on Friday and the lady she was taking care of repeatedly and vehemently stated that it does that right before it rains.
Just one problem though, it hasn't rained since tuesday and it is now sunday.

Thoughts? please I would like some input on this

Micro earthquakes? Wasn't it stated earlier that there wasn't any seizmic activity?

I had a friend mention that I should search for MYSTERIOUS BOOM on Google and this is when I found that what happened to me and my family was not isolated.

Dec 24, 2004 just South and West of Columbus, Ohio. I was at my parents house preparing for Christmas and at 7:30pm we heard a loud boom that shook the house and everyone thought someone else in the house had fallen from a ladder. This is farm country and we are downwind from Wright Patterson AFB flight path.

We called the neighbors and they joked that maybe it was Santa and so on.

An hour later they heard it too and they were just as freaked as we were. Now no one was laughing.

I thought it was a large tree falling due to the ice and thought I would use the infra-red on my camera to go back behind the house and point the camera at the trees.

I bundled-up and went out the front door and as I turned the corner of the house past the garage. Something UNSEEN screamed at me. It shocked me so much that it sounded like the most horrific sound I had EVER heard and sounded male. I looked to the left to look at where the echo was returning from and then I turned forward again and struggled to see what had just screamed at me.

I saw nothing.

Now. I turned immediately and went back to the front porch and my father came out. I was hysterical. I am in my 30's and he is in his 60's and he told me to calm down. I kept asking if he heard it. He said he had. But when we went into the house my mother answered that she had heard it too. The thing is, they only heard the BOOM and not the scream.

My mother mentioned that she had NEVER seen me so pale in her life.

This is where it turns even more interesting. Later when I finally calmed down I took my camera out and (SONY f-828) was going to take a pic of the x-mas tree when I noticed that the image count was off by 1500 numbers. I then turned it to what should have been a rock band group of photos and saw that there were 9 pics taken. Only one showed and it was in infra-red. I never TOOK the PHOTO because I never made it around back to look at the trees. I am a pro photographer and the band shots should have been all there was. My mother had seen them earlier in the evening so she knew there was NO foolishness happening.

The picture is green (infra-red interpretation by the SONY cameras) and is a BALL of energy. I ran some filters on it and some interesting things appear behind the energy ball.

I am willing to post a pic here if anyone wants to see it.

The camera then lost power and then after I got the pic on my laptop the entire memory stick failed. ALL the pics on the card are NOW gone. The memory stick is a SONY stick (128mb) and it is toasted.

Now the weirdest part. In January (last week) my folks got their electric bill and the bill was $360.00 more than usual. They are working with Ohio Edison to remedy the bill. My brother is an electrician and he has had to work on their electircal box for the last week to figure why the current is weak going back to their barn.

Yeah, post the picture!

Are booms still occuring?

Great report johnwest1970.
And don´t forget to post the picture, I would also very much like to see it.

Is there no way of triangulating where the sounds come from. I think I´ve read that some police departments have a system of microphones placed in citys. When a gunshot is fired it can then be located approximately where the origin of the sound is.

Maybe it was only technology that was waiting to be implemented, it was a long time since I read about it.
