It could be a gunshot. Sometimes I hear big booms as well that seem to come from the sky, but it learned that there's some people down the valley that go hunting and shooting, and that it was just gunshots I was hearing.

When I was a kid in the 1950s (The Jet Age) we used to hear sonic booms occasionally from jet planes. Really loud, like a close thunder clap only spread out in the entire sky. They would rattle windows and knock nicknacks off shelves.

I think they were 'outlawed' later as people complained about them.

I'd say a comet and you dont need to see an aircraft to hear a sonic boom

coz the sound was the same as a sonic boom.from a plane.

thats why am asking if anybody can explain how sonic boom can be generated without any plane on sight.and i see planes all the time and i dont hear any. Very loud boom sound when they pasd by my area get it...

The non visibility of the air craft does not exclude that the boom was caused by an A/C. Commercial A/C are visible as they are

hudge (e.g. Boeing 777 is 70x60meters) compared to a military super sonic A/C (e.g. F16 is 15x10meters) and commercial A/C

are mostly painted in white color, military A/C are not due to camouflage purposes. Assuming a military A/C breaks the sound

barrier at an altitude of 10.000meters, the boom will take 29 seconds to reach the ground (you). In this 29 seconds the A/C make

a distance of approx 10km, means 660 times its length so you cannot spot it at the direction where you think the boom was

originated from.

Recapitulatory I would say the topic matches the event, so file closed.

How can a sonic boom first be mistaken for fireworks?

Sorry, I'm trying to understand in detail what you heard. Toast explained it really well. But I want to ask you live near hills or mountains? is there a building site near you? do you live near a busy area? are you in countryside? Do you live near any military bases? Do you hava any sports and outdoor activities going on there?

Mistpouffers are unexplained reports that sound like a cannon or a sonic boom. They have been heard in many waterfront communities around the world such as the banks of the river Ganges in India, the East Coast and inland Finger Lakes of the United States, as well as areas of the North Sea, Japan and Italy; and sometimes away from water.

You may also want to google 'Senica Guns'.

The comments on this video are also interesting.

Objects entering the atmosphere make a sonic boom, such as meteors (or maybe junk). It's not that uncommon. You can hear it from the ground if they are big enough and your in the right place.

Did you startle you, did it make you flinch or anything when you heard it?

It could be a gunshot. Sometimes I hear big booms as well that seem to come from the sky, but it learned that there's some people down the valley that go hunting and shooting, and that it was just gunshots I was hearing.

So do you think someone might hear a rifle fired 100 yards away, seems it would be easily recognizable wouldn't you think?

o lived in a flat suburban area no tall buildings its a flat residential and factory area.sometimes fireworks can make that kind of sound esp the big one the one that you use during new years eve.thats why i checked if there were fireworks. Gunshots have a sharp sound.this one was a loud boom.there were no planes in sight.
