People from London to Glasgow reported hearing loud unexplained noises on Saturday night.
In some areas the booms, which occurred between 10pm and 10.30pm, were so loud that they shook windows and left many people scared and confused.
Some took to social media sites to speculate over what might have happened with suggestions ranging from a meteorite explosion to the sonic boom of a passing aircraft. The Ministry of Defence however has denied that any jets had been scrambled over the country at the time the noises were heard.
A loud explosion was also picked up near Catterick, Britain's largest army base, at 3am on the same night. Police carried out a full investigation but couldn't find anything to explain it.
The incidents follow another loud bang that was heard over Manchester earlier in the week. Fire crews conducted a detailed search but were unable to locate the source of the explosion.
