I heard it all the way over on the east side of Pleasanton. I have no idea what it was.

I heard it too. In my house it sounded like someone dropped a basketball on the roof. I then heard rumor it was an earthquake but didn't see anything listed on the Internet sites. Could it have been a sonic boom? That's the only other thing I could think of.

I am in Parkside and heard it. It was really loud.
Someone must know what this was!

I heard it too, over by Lydiksen. It reminded me of a sonic boom when I heard one long ago. I too would love to know what it was.
