Look up 'moodus noises'. Apparently heated air (In that case by sunlight on rock formations) can cause noises which are actually close by and not very loud but sound like big explosions far away. I have heard this effect on two different continents.BakeliteBrain said:Any meteorologists out there who can confirm this rather odd mechanism for an atmospheric 'explosion'? I've never heard of such a thing nor can imagine how a very loud noise can be generated in the atmosphere without and 'explosion' caused by either a sonic boom, lightning or a bomb!Cochise said:Atmospherics, I expect. I've heard 'explosions' before that turned out (probably) to be heated air rising through cold air - there was very warm air for the time of year next to the ground yesterday and it was cold overnight.
