Over the last few years, mysterious, loud noises that sound similar to a “boom” have been heard around the world. It sounds like it’s coming from above in the sky. Nobody has any idea what the sound is coming from. Some predict aliens while others try to justify it with science.

The residents of Denver, Colorado experienced the very same boom sound.

Startling Sound

People of Denver heard a mysterious and terrifying sound one Monday night around 9 pm. It was so loud that it woke people up from their sleep. What could cause such a terrifying sound?

Around the World

It wasn’t the first time a sound like this has been heard. People from around the world have claimed to hear it at one point. Nobody has come up with an explanation, though.

The Beginning

The first boom was recorded in Connecticut on January 3, 2017. Scientists are stumped as to where the sound is coming from.

Meteor Theory

Chris Spears, a meteorologist from CBS theorizes that the Leonid meteor shower may have caused the sound. The sound could have been caused by a piece of debris falling from the tail of the Temple-Tuttle comet and entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

Busted

Ron Hranac, an expert in astronomy, discredited Spears’s theory. A sound as big as the boon couldn’t be caused by debris the size of a pea.

Denver

It was November 21, 2017 when residents heard the strange and terrifying boom at 9 pm. It shook houses and rattled windows.

Theories Galore

People of Denver theorized just what could have made that sound. They became excited at the possibility of aliens and cosmic forces. However, they were disappointed to learn that it was probably caused by an industrial accident.

That Night

It turns out that the night of the boom, a malfunction occurred in an empty storage tank according to the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

Pressure is On

The pressure in the tank was so extreme that it made the lid pop off, which may have caused the sound that the city’s residents heard that night.

Logical Explanation

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Upwork:Boom Denver:nafta.jpg

It seemed that all evidence pointed towards this being the cause of the sound. However, there was one key fact that didn’t seem right.

Multiple Booms

People claimed to have heard two booms that night, not just one. So, where did the second sound come from? Only one tank exploded that night.

The Military

Some theorized that the boom was caused by military jets that broke the sound barrier. This is completely plausible. Some still didn’t believe it though.

Air Force Base

While the theory made sense, it was debunked. The closest Air Force base to Denver is Buckley Air Force Base and no jets were in the in air passed 8 pm that night.

Other Booms

Some of the booms heard in other places were caused by supersonic flight, like space missions taking place at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Earthquake

Chris Spears was determined to figure out the cause of the boom. His next theory was that an earthquake hit Colorado that night. After checking with the Geological Survey, the theory was debunked. It turns out that they recorded the sound coming from the Rocky Mountain Arsenal caused by a train passing through.

Fireball

New evidence came to the surface some time after the sound occurred. One witness reported seeing a fireball in the sky that night. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the cause either because it was spotted more than two hours after the occurrence.

The Tanker Theory

The exploding tank may be the probably cause of the sound in Denver. However, that doesn’t explain the sound that occurred in other places.

Alabama

In 2017, a sound heard in Alabama was heard and is now referred to as the “Bama Boom.” The cause of it still remains a mystery after investigation.

Last Days
