This is an old but interesting series of events that took started December 2 1978 covered an area over 1000km apart. The phenomena was labelled as the Mystery Booms. Hundreds off reports came in over a period of months of booms going off in the sky and houses shaking.

By the end of the year the US Government due to public demand had commisoned the US Navy to do an enquiry into the event. The official explanation was that is was caused by supersonic planes bouncing booms off the atmosphere and special atmospherical conditions..

Some officials found this difficult to stomach as there where no planes in the area at the times of the events. Doctor William Donn, A Chief Atmospheric Scientist refuted the claims and stated that the booms where far too loud to have been caused by super sonic planes. Nor where there any special atmospherical conditions.

The booms in the sky and not that interesting by themselves. What is interesting is that in the boom season other events where also witnessed. Beams of lights and large glowing orbs.

The most notable of these booms was the Bell Island, Newfoundland Boom which occurred in the day time. The local residents heard a large explosion. It is reported that:


Enough energy was released that day to set off the American nuclear test watch satellites, and weapons researchers from the Los Alamos National Laboratory soon showed up at the site.


Blue fire was reported jetting out 18 inches from plug sockets. TV sets started burning and smoking. Balls of light came out of the glass. motors burnt out and even an old clock that was not wound up started to work. Three foot diameter blue balls of light where witnessed in the area

Three building where blown apart without any burning.. Chickens found dead in there barn. They had no burns but instead had bleeding from the mouth and eyes.

Just before the boom occurred some people reported hearing a loud tone like noise and reported seeing a beam of light strike the island. Scientists later estimated that the amount of energy dissipated here in a fraction of a second would be enough to power a city for six hours.

After this event took place investigators came to the area and concluded the event was caused by super lighting. Many of the residents of Bell Island refuse the lightening conclusion. The lighting conclusion was also refuted by weathermen.

The fact that these booms occurred over a period of time and often at the same time of the day indicates that this was not a natural weather event and man made in nature. Where the military testing a new type of electromagnetic weaponry or was there something else at play..

CBC Reporter, Rick Seaward, was at the scene in 1978 and reported the events in a three part broadcast. The sound quality of the youtube stream is poor in places. Be patient..

This sounds to me a lot like a bomb driven electromagnetic pulse (EMP).

Wasn't there a similar phenomen in Italy where an entire town experienced inexplicable fires, burnt out motors ane electrical shorts in appliances? I think there was a suspicion of military weapon testing - like EMP.

Yes in Italy..


Hundreds of small fires without apparent cause and in unexpected places, from the water pipeline to an abandoned chair, from a moving car to spontaneous activation of central locking of parked cars, cell phones ringing without any calls , batteries which run down all of a sudden. A navigation system went up in smoke, electrical and electronic equipment “become crazy”, and a deviation of the magnetic north of the compass .

Meanwhile refrigerators, televisions, radios burn out along with the bed of a woman. It seems the grid that supports the mattress has overheated. After a fire in the water pipeline station, too, mayor Pedro Spinnato suspends the water supply and calls a special session of the city council.


This bit where it happens to non-electrical objects can only be caused by induction heating.This would require the use of a very strong electromagnetic field being modulated at frequencies normally outside the range of human hearing.It could account for most if not all of the other symptoms as well.

Cell phone ringing ? It may be nothing but over here in England there is a street magician called dynamo. I think he was in New York and he done this trick where he made everyone's cell phones ring.

Now i know it's all an illusion. My point is if this magician had somehow or has some electrical devise that created some sort of emp signal. Maybe someone is testing an emp weapon and the effects cause phones to ring. What do I know I'm not expert just thought is share that.
Interesting story though

Here's dynamo making phones ring

s/F purp..

This is certainly an interesting case. It was the orbs and the beam of light in the sky that caught my attention. Possibly it was super lightning like they said which created ball lightning (orbs).. I am not sure. But the residents certainly seemed to have experienced something very powerful.

However correct me if I am wrong, but surely the residents would have seen this super lightning..? They said they saw a beam of light. Not lightning... And if it was super lightning that caused these events surely someone would have seen it..

Or the military were up to no good and refused to fess up..


I like to think it might be orb beings playing around... maybe...

yep.

One thing of note is both were near the ocean.

Why is this important? who knows... maybe an undersea detonation of a certain purpose-built EMP weapon could go undetected by the nuclear arms convention.

Of course i know little about such things or whether an undersea detonation would even cause an EMP above ground on land.

A point of note about Bell Island is the fact it use to be an iron mining town.. A good electrical conduit...

Remember the kid stated he saw a white orb about three feet across with orange lining the edge. Given that report along with the beam of light, holes in the ground, something was traveling. Energy or someTHING?

Could this be something related with time-travel, inter-dimensional? Or maybe it was just military/Los Alamos.

Intriguing nonetheless.

Now I want to know about the iron composition of that town in Italy. I think you're on to something here...

I know what you mean. I scratched my head wondering what forum to put it in.. I would guess it was weapon testing although I am not sure..

I'm fairly ignorant on the whole emp subject, do we actually have emp weaponry capable of wiping out towns or is it theorized black ops? There's no doubt in my mind they have or are currently working on it. I assume that the governments of the world have conducted experiments for every situation and technology they could think of, especially if there's some kind of military application. I'm betting literally anything I can imagine has been thought of, investigated, and experimented on...and loads more that I can't even fathom. Everything from accessing alternate realities, ufo's, time travel, esp, even zombies have probably crossed their plate at one point or another...but with what kinds of success?

As for the Dynamo fellow mentioned earlier, after watching that video my skeptic spidey sense is tingling! Why are all the ring tones generic? Nearly everyone I know has some obnoxious musical ring tone yet this group consists entirely of generic non-copyrighted ring tones? Then there's the fake "electricity" noise when the signs flicker and change. I call shenanigans, not because it's not magic...obviously. No, I call shenanigans on the fact that it's even a legitimate illusion. To me it seems like just another fake video on youtube.

The 2 scientists from Los Alamos concluded that it was a superbolt an extremely powerful lightning bolt and they tied it in with metrological records from the day

I've done some research. It seems there is a YouTube video for nearly every magic trick out there explaining how it was done. Just type in a name or description of the trick followed by "explained". I also very much enjoyed the show i think it's called Magic Revealed or something, with the guy who wears the mask... Anyway, one thing that surprised me was how some tricks, even the supposed street magicians where it's supposedly done impromptu in front of a random crowd, involve a fake audience that is in on it. The looks of surprise and shock are all fake. I suspect that the cell phone trick was probably done similarly.

Maybe so. But that does not conclusively explain the event. The booms where occurring for months at similar times of the day. That fact in itself can not be explained as a weather event.

I do not understand emps very much. I do know that such technology exists though.. A high altitude nuclear burst can create an emp and some people think that Haarp is capable of emps too...


An electromagnetic pulse (EMP), also sometimes called a transient disturbance, is a short burst of electromagnetic energy. It may occur in the form of a radiated, electric or magnetic field or conducted electrical current depending on the source. Electromagnetic pulse is commonly abbreviated EMP, pronounced by saying the letters separately (E-M-P).
EMP is generally damaging to electronic equipment, and its management is an important branch of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) engineering. At higher energy levels, an EMP event such as a lightning strike can cause more widespread damage to aircraft structures and other objects.
The damaging effects of high-energy EMP have been used to create EMP weapons, both nuclear and non-nuclear. These weapons, both real and fictional, have gained traction in popular culture.

Ok but the main event when the beams of light were sighted, impacts and electrical malfunctions were tied in with an electrical storm high up in the atmosphere

A nuclear burst would have been widely recorded and the project HAARP wasn`t started until the early 1990`s

Sorry I was not trying to insinuate that the Bell Island event was caused by a nuclear event or by Haarp. I was just trying to show different types of EMPs..
