Mysterious Booms Heard Around the World Leaving People Perplexed

In recent years, there have been hundreds of reported cases of startling, deafening booms that have shaken entire cities across the globe. Some say the noises have terrified them and their pets, or that the mysterious booms sound as if they’re coming from their own living rooms.

Others give more colorful analogies, describing the booming as someone firing a cannonball off a boat. But one thing is for sure: many people are experiencing earth- and house-shaking booms that defy explanation — and there are a multitude of guesses as to what’s causing them.

Loud Booms Heard Around the World

Though reports of mysterious booms have not been broadcast on national television, stories of them have been echoing through a network of communities. The penetrating sounds have been heard all times of the day and night, and residents of the areas impacted have flooded 9-1-1 dispatches, as well as local television and radio stations, with accounts of being scared out of bed — and trying to get to the bottom of whatever it is that’s disturbing the peace and setting off car alarms.

According to one report on March 26, 2019, a loud boom heard across several counties in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina was massive enough to register on seismographs. The explanation? Authorities attributed it to an earthquake. 

But a few months prior to the North Carolina events, similar loud booms occurred not too far away, in Maryville, Tennessee, as well. Experts at the United States Geological Society (USGS) initially concluded that the booms were earthquakes, but later changed their minds and reported that they were caused by a nearby quarry blast.

Later, USGS authorities again changed their story and declared that the sound was the result of an earthquake caused by a quarry blast. And then, Carl VanHoozier, Community Relations Manager at Vulcan Materials Company, informed Knoxville’s WVLT News that a quarry blast couldn’t have caused such a ruckus.

Next, Robert Hatcher, PhD, University of Tennessee’s distinguished professor of geology, came to the fore and told WVLT News that the earthquake idea was nonsense. He said, “‘Usually a rumble, people who have been in earthquakes describe the noise as a train that comes in. It’s a rumble that comes in, that’s the earthquake’s way of coming through the earth. And so you hear a rumble, there’s not a boom or something like that.’”

Further dissolving the idea of a localized phenomenon are reports that have come in from around the world — from the United States to the United Kingdom to the Middle East and Australia. In all cases, official explanations have remained unsatisfactory to the residents who’ve experienced them, leaving them guessing along with the authorities as to what they had experienced.

Theories Surrounding Unexplained Booms

Whenever authorities begin pointing to rather abstract explanations for strange events like the mysterious booms, numerous conspiracy theories inevitably rise. Why? Or maybe the question should be “Why not?” People tend to lose their faith in official reports when they fail to make sense or take into consideration everything that has taken place. Not only are official explanations without proof, but they tend to seem dismissive, as well.

One theory that has become popular among those who’ve heard the loud booms first hand, and those who’ve been following the hundreds of reports made about them, is that the noises are caused by unidentified aircraft breaking the sound barrier over residential areas, but the jury is out on whether these are from top secret government aircraft or spaceships. In either case, this might explain why governmental agencies are unwilling to provide a straight answer. 

Other official explanations seem to suffice for a few of the events, but certainly not all, and they range from meteor showers to illegal fireworks to climate change to abrupt changes in atmospheric temperature. 

Some believe this type of phenomenon has been persisting for decades, at least, and that it’s related to the events recorded in various literary works, including Washington Irving’s “Rip Van Winkle” and James Fenimore Cooper’s “The Lake Gun.” 

People tracking these sounds suspect that they share the same cause as all other booms known to various areas around the world over the course of many decades. According to mysterybooms.com, “In Greenland, French Explorers near Scoresby Sound in the 1930s once described a deep, foghorn-like noise that has been called ‘Ton der Dove-Bai.’ Elsewhere around the world, the Bay of Bengal has its ‘Bansal guns,’ while booms known as ‘yan’ have been reported near Shikoku, Japan. The Italian Apennines also have their version of thunderous phenomenon of unexplained origin, similar to the Belgian descriptions of mistpouffers, or ‘fog belches’.” 

It may be tempting to dismiss the myriad reports of mysterious booms as insignificant, or even flippantly attribute them to improbable causes, but to those who’ve been shaken out of their beds by these sky-splitting sounds, there’s still a puzzle begging to be solved. Right now, all they have are questions: What is the source of so much chaos? Will it happen again? Is the government hiding something from us? Perhaps most importantly is the question of whether this is just the beginning of something much bigger that we should all be preparing for now.

Did Nixon Leave Behind Evidence of Aliens in the White House?

If there’s anyone with insight into the existence of extraterrestrials, it’s the President of the United States. But when the topic of disclosure comes up, Richard Nixon’s name appears infrequently compared to other presidents tied to the government’s ufological secrets. But according to the testimony of one confidential informant, not only has the government made contact, but Nixon left evidence of the existence of aliens in the White House.

And it remains there to this day, he says, hidden in a time capsule – its location known only to a handful of people. Though, Nixon claimed it would surface when the time was right.

That informant is Earl Robert “Butch” Merritt, a man with a storied career as a confidential agent for the Nixon administration. A man who participated in a variety of intelligence operations in the nascent years of what would later become the NSA’s COINTEL program used to surveil, infiltrate, and disrupt various organizations and target groups even before Watergate.

And while Merritt’s credibility might seem questionable when discussing alien disclosure, his career as an informant is well documented, as are his high-level government connections. Which is why his revelation of a clandestine conversation with Nixon regarding the existence of alien technology and a living extraterrestrial entity is hard to immediately dismiss.

Evidence of Aliens in the White House?

President Eisenhower is usually the first name that comes to mind when discussing the White House’s knowledge of an alien presence, particularly in regard to an apocryphal program known as MJ-12, or Majestic 12.

Essentially, MJ-12 was an alleged group of high brass military and government officials organized after the Roswell UFO incident to deal with the implications of an alien presence and its subsequent technology.

And it was that technology recovered from the Roswell crash that is believed to have led to exponential leaps in our technological advancements, many of which have been used to bolster the military industrial complex – an industry Ike so famously warned the world about before leaving office.

Though he didn’t immediately succeed him, Nixon was Eisenhower’s Vice President, making the ufological connection all the more intriguing. It was also relatively well known that Nixon believed in the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrials, despite his release of Project Bluebook’s conclusive analysis; an Air Force study known as the Condon Report, which allegedly put the existence of UFOs to rest.

But according to his testimony, Nixon divulged his knowledge of a “sophisticated intelligent being” to Merritt toward the end of his presidency when he realized the Watergate scandal was becoming an imminent threat. According to Merritt, Nixon claimed the being was alive and in government protection.

He says Nixon entrusted this information to him as he considered Merritt one of his only confidantes, asking him to personally deliver a letter on the subject to Henry Kissinger – a copy of which allegedly remains hidden today somewhere in the White House.
