Possible causes of mysterious booms
First you should look for man-made sources like jet sonic booms, military and police trainings, underground tunnel constructions, blasting, fire, explosions (e.g., tannerite).
You may also know that earthquakes produce loud booms. So if you live in an earthquake prone area, a fracking area, or near a volcano you may experience these loud rumbling noises.
So when you don’t have quakes or volcanoes around, then probable causes are regional thunderstorms, tsunami-like waves breaking off-shore, explosive offshore methane bursts, disintegrating meteors or if you are in the desert some booming sand dunes.
But don’t forget that when earth moves and pulls apart in stretch zones, loud booms are created by the air above the areas slapping together. Most of the mystery booms and rumblings are the result of a tearing or stretching Earth. So, I would advise people living along stretch zones to keep a close check on their homes and on the sinking ground around. You may indeed experience an increase in crack and sinkhole formations.
