Mysterious loud boom puzzles experts across the globe

These alarming noises are being heard in places starting from the Middle East to East Midlands and various other places. Mysterious and unusual sound have terrified the residents of 64 regions.

People throughout Adelaide in South Australia were shaken by the loud sounds along with a pair of seismic tremors.

Earthquakes have been ruled out by US Geological Survey, which reportedly said that it noted the booms and were sure the sounds were not a result of a quake.

As per reports, the latest one was heard in Alabama and Idaho in the USA last week.

The boom, nicknamed "Bama Boom", has left experts stumped, with suggested causes ranging from supersonic aircrafts to meteors exploding in the atmosphere.

The Birmingham National Weather Service says in a tweet that they have heard loud boom but have not seen anything indicating large fire/smoke on radar or satellite, nothing on USGS indicating an natural disaster. But NASA has since cast skepticism on these explanations. ABC 3340 quoted head of the organisation's Meteoroid Environment Office as saying that the sound could "have been caused by a supersonic aircraft, a ground explosion, or a bolide - a large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere unrelated to the Leonid shower".

People from all across the world are baffled by the recent series of booming sounds being experienced at various corners of the globe.

US Geological Survey also picked up the noise, noting that it was not due to an natural disaster.

In the Colorado incident, both the Federal Aviation Administration and the Buckley Air Force Base have confirmed that they were not carrying out any operation that could have caused the boom.

While the booms have been heard at least 64 times in cities and towns across the United States, experts are still struggling to explain what causes them. Areas around Michigan, Lapland, St Ives, Swansea and Yorkshire have all recorded the mysterious "Bama Booms".

The booming noise in Cairns was associated with an FA-18 Hornet Plane flying nearby, but just two weeks later a similar boom was heard around the Eyre Peninsula located in the Southern periphery of Australia.

One of the locals told News Corp that the meteor got bigger and bigger.

NASA's meteor scientists will continue to analyze the whole data and try to reach some conclusion determining the causes of these booms.
