So a bunch of people on facebook that lives down near Holden Beach all the way up to Wilmington heard a loud boom that practically shook their house. WECT can't confirm what it was but they said that it wasn't military exercises or an earthquake. So what the hellcould it be? Anyone on the coast heard/felt anything last night?

Lol glad you guys are taking my thread seriously... Oh by the way, WECT updated their story and Brunswick Co. folks say that not only did they hear a bang but saw weird lights illuminating the sky.

I once read in a "Mysteries of the Carolinas" book that there was a boom that occasionally happens on the east coast and can reach all the way to Maine. In the book, it said that there was absolutely no explanation for the booms. No seismic activity or military activity could explain it.

Probably a natural phenomenon, the Earth can do some pretty crazy things. There are many rare natural events that we still know very little about.

As long as it was a "boom" and not a "bloop" like the one recorded in 1997 that was picked up by sensors all around the Pacific and had a frequency that indicated it was made by a living organism and not a natural event.

It could be a lot of things, even a military aircraft breaking the sound barrier in just the right conditions for the wave to carry.
