Mystery booms have been popping up all over the Nation over the last few years and now residents in Pennsylvania are left scratching their heads. The question is, what caused the loud blast heard by many throughout the area? At approximately 12:15 a.m. Sunday many residents across the Hazleton area reported experiencing what sounded and felt like a “sonic boom” — rattling windows, and “echoing like an explosion,”

according to concerned resident Tom Heller. “I’ve been hearing people report about it from all over,” he said. “McAdoo, Hazleton, Packer Township … even the Valley.” The noise went viral on social media, drawing hypotheses from concerned residents as to what caused such a boom. CONTINUE
