Residents of Alabama last week were startled by a loud bang that was heard in most of the US state.

People are talking about the ‘Bama Boom’. Experts are baffled. Possible explanations range from supersonic aircraft to exploding meteor.
The National Weather Service Birmingham tweeted: “Loud boom heard, we see no signs of fire/smoke on radar or satellite; is no evidence that it is an earthquake. ”
Re: loud boom heard: we do not see anything indicating large fire/smoke on radar or satellite; nothing on USGS indicating an earthquake. We don't have an answer, and can only hypothesize with you. 1) sonic boom from aircraft; 2) meteorite w/ current Leonid shower?

The department suggested that the sound was caused by a sonic boom from an aircraft or meteorite, but NASA has doubts about these statements.
In other places on earth, strange boom sounds can be heard too. This year there are 64 cases reported including Michigan, Lapland, and Yorkshire.
On the day after the blast in Alabama, on November 15, a similar sound was heard in the state of Idaho.
On October 10 inhabitants of the Australian city of Cairns were startled by a loud bang. At the time of the “explosion”, no jets were flying over the city.
Still no explanation for the “Bama Boom” around 1:45p CT. Reports are from Blount, Jefferson, Walker, Cullman, Talladega, Calhoun, Clay, Winston, Randolph, Tuscaloosa, St. Clair counties.
No explanation from USGS, NOAA, or EMA. Waiting to hear back from NASA… possible meteor

Concerning today’s “Bama Boom”… this just in from Bill Cooke at NASA in Huntsville…Good evening, all. The origin…
In May, residents of Abergavenny in Wales heard a series of explosions. “The noise was so loud that I almost had a heart attack,” said a local resident.
The incredible boom many of us heard this afternoon was actually detected on a seismograph in Cleburne County. Thanks to Steve Jones at Earth Alabama for the data. pic.twitter.com/qdqFJZqtft

“At first I thought somebody shot with a rifle or fireworks, but it was much louder than that,” the resident added. “It sounded more like a tank fired.”
“My husband said it was probably mini meteors that had collided with earth, but I think that’s nonsense,” it’s said.
But the soldier of enlightenment explains what caused it.
