In recent years, the phenomenon has been increasingly covered in the media, although these booming noises have been reported throughout history and around the world.

For example, the “Seneca guns” are loud booms that rattle residents for decades along North Carolina’s Outer Banks as well as around New York’s Catskill Mountains near the vicinity of Lake Seneca. Elsewhere around the world, Greenland has its deep, foghorn-like noises called “Ton der Dove-Bai,” the Bay of Bengal has its “Bansal guns”, Shikoku, Japan has booms known as “yan”, in Italy they are called “bronditi” and the Belgium’s thunderous phenomenon is called mistpouffers.

What causes the mystery booms?

The origin of the loud rumbling noises remain enigmatic almost all of the time. Skyquakes may have different origins:

  • In coastal regions, large waves crashing on the beach or cliffs can create loud bangs. It seems that reports of thunderous sounds are apparently common among big-wave surfers in the US.
  • Other people report mysterious booms accompanying tsunamis – sometimes alongside mysterious fire balls. This may indicate that both comes from a belch of methane erupting from “clathrate” crystals on the ocean floor. Imagine if that ignites somehow…
  • Sand dunes can produce a variety of low-level whispering, whistling, singing, humming, or squeaking sounds, and less commonly, loud booming sounds.
  • Earthquakes are known to produce booming sound and rumbling. Although sounds of deep earthquakes are too low for human hearing, shallow jolts transmit audible noises of the cracking crust.
  • Sonic booms: Army jets and meteor explosions can produce damaging loud booms as the pass the speed of sound or explode through the atmosphere.
  • Thunder
  • Military exercises
  • other man-made origins: gas explosions, fires, tanerite, firearms, shooting, fireworks, parties
