AN investigation has been launched into the cause of a mysterious boom which shook buildings across the Island on Saturday afternoon.
Hundreds of Islanders reported hearing a loud bang – similar to a sonic boom – at 1.04 pm.
The boom was so loud it rattled doors and windows from Gorey to St Ouen and even measured on the Island’s seismograph in St Aubin.
But despite speculation that the noise was caused by a military jet travelling faster than the speed of sound, Jersey Airport has confirmed that no aircraft capable of causing such a noise was in the Island’s airspace at the time.
And Jersey Met Office has confirmed that it is unlikely that any meteorological phenomenon could have caused the noise.

Mysterious booms

EL DORADO COUNTY (CBS13) – People from all over El Dorado County say they’re hearing loud booms several times a week, but there are many theories on what is causing them.
“I thought it was thunder,” said one person.
“It’s definitely not thunder; too consistent. I thought it was just mining,” said another person.
“I always considered them to be sonic booms from flying aircrafts for years,” said Loring Brunius, owner of Sierra Rock Diamond Quarry.
People who live near Pleasant Valley say their days have been interrupted by loud booms, shaking the floor beneath them.
“You can feel it in the ground, no question about it. But no one’s been able to figure out why,” said Pleasant Valley resident Peter O’Grady. “I tend to hear somewhere between four to six of these things during the weekdays usually between 11 p.m. and 2 p.m.
“Boom, boom, boom, boom just like that,” said Lorren Gonzales, who lives near Pleasant Valley.
And the rolling foothills of El Dorado County make it difficult for them to even tell where it’s coming from.
We asked the owner of Sierra Rock Diamond Quarry what he knew about it. He says they havent blasted since last year. And any miners or quarry owners would need government permission before they can set off any explosives.
“It’s a federally mandated system, and enforced,” said Brunius.
Some think the booms are from nearby wineries using propane cannons to scare away birds.
“We’ve never done it and I don’t know of any other winery that does,” said Carrie Bendick, a winemaker at Holly’s Hill Winery.
According to USGS, there aren’t enough seismic stations to pinpoint the exact location. Meanwhile, some say the booms have been around so long and happen so often they barely notice them anymore. Still, others want to solve the mystery.
“I would like to know what it is, yeah. And I’d like to know when it’s going to stop too,” said O’Grady.
CBS13 spoke to Fallon Naval Air Station that said any supersonic flight operations they do are only allowed over Dixie Valley, which is hundreds of miles away.

Some think illegal mining could be the source of the sounds, but Brunius doubts that theory. He said if that was the case, the culprit would have been caught by now.

Strange hum keeping West Seattle awake

Julie Schickling stood out on her porch in West Seattle just after midnight because she couldn't explain what she was hearing. So she recorded the sound (listen here on West Seattle Blog).
"It gets high and lower, and goes away, then comes back," said Schickling.
Some of her neighbors report being shaken out of bed by the low rumble, also described as a growl. In fact, as many people you talk with is about how many different words you heard to describe it.
"It is kind of creepy," Kay Kirkpatrick, the West Seattle resident said of the sound. "It creeps you out a little bit."
The neighboring large industries say they aren't to blame.
Then what is? Something the City of Seattle is looking into.
Some long time residents say they've heard this sound before over the years. Others say it's the first encounter they've had with the eerie noise.
"We want to know," Kirkpatrick said. "Tell us what it is."

Fascinating stuff in this thread although I have to admit I feel a little creeped out by it all especially since its after midnight
I have heard videos of these strange sounds, however I can't be sure which noises are real and which are faked, some of the YouTube ones really put the spooks on me but I realised that some may be edited sounds.

I will keep an eye on this thread as its very interesting and I'm enjoying reading the different stories from worldwide.

Mystery Boom Rattles NJ Community

Police in Manchester Township, NJ are investigating a mysterious boom that shook block after block in the Ocean County community Thursday night. Residents say it felt and sounded like an explosion.
“It was so loud that my windows were rattling" said Jayne Yereance. "I really thought the house next door blew up. That’s how bad it was.”
Residents say there have been similar incidents since the summer. Police are trying to determine if they're connected, but investigators don't yet know where the sounds are coming from or who is responsible.
There's been no damage and no one's been hurt, but many people are on edge.
"I really wish they would knock it off so we can stop jumping out of our skin” Marissa Bartles said.
The Lakehurst military base is nearby, but authorities don't think that's the source of the booms. Military officials tell NBC10 there were no explosions on the base Thursday night.

Mysterious hum reported in Mt Victoria

A mysterious low-pitched humming sound has been troubling some Wellington residents for the last few days and it seems no-one has any idea what it might be.
The Wellington City Council has had several calls over the past few days with the most recent being about 5am today.
Have you heard the noise or know what it could be?
Spokesman Richard MacLean said the complaints had been coming in from Mt Victoria, Newtown and Mt Cook residents. "We are interested to hear if this starts to become a constant thing. We are keeping our ear to the ground."
One Mt Victoria resident said he and his fiancee had noticed the noise on Saturday and it hadn't stopped since.
He likened it to a low to medium pitched humming sound and said it went all day and all night and was "doing his head in".
The phenomena has also been reported in various parts of the world, including Auckland's North Shore.
