Sonic Boom? Today Dec 13 before noon?

Original post made by Petra, West of Foothill, on Dec 13, 2013

I am the only one who heard multiple 'sonic boom' like sounds outdoors today? I believe it was this morning before noon and I heard about 3-4 of them within a short period of time (10 mins or so).

Anyone heard these and/or know what it was?

Heard two today and one yesterday. At first I thought a bird had hit a window.

I heard them exactly as you've described them. I assumed the sound originated from Camp Parks, but they sure seemed closer than that. You could almost feel the blast's percussion. A bit scary actually.

Yes. I thought somebody was slamming a car trunk near Valley & Santa Rita. But second time, I thought ..again?? A deeper sound that slamming. Wait a bit then a third, I thought if a temper slamming, why is this person doing over again .. Odd, I could not figure out what it was, or if it was near or far.
