California residents of Sonora have been plagued with mystery “booms” that has left the small town looking to the sky. The booms can often be heard weekdays during the summer months from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m but no explanation can be given to what they are?  Some residents believe the noise is part of a mining operation, logging operation or even aliens. One Geologist and educator Glen White may give the logical explanation for the mystery.

Reports say that Over the weekend White took video of explosions near an Army Depot 100 miles away from Sonora, outside Hawthorne, Nevada, where a private company disposes and dismantles old bombs. White believes the noise from the explosion could be bouncing off the atmosphere where air is dense. The noise then comes back down to earth hundreds of miles away. Although no official proof can be made of this it is the only answer they have at this time.
