BERKELEY [California] (CBS SF) – Residents living in some Berkeley neighborhoods have been kept up at night over mysterious booms heard in the area over the past few weeks. It’s an unsolved mystery that even has police scratching their heads.
Rachael Marzoline told KPIX 5 about the boom she heard two nights ago. “I’d say it was around one in the morning, scared the hell out of me. I jumped out of bed,” Marzoline recalled.
Joel Bryant said he heard the booms at least eight different times in the last month. “We’re puzzled by it,” he said. “It’s not as crisp as a gunshot. It sounds like an aerial bomb explosion.”
Berkeley Police tell KPIX they can’t solve the mystery either, which has led some residents to Twitter, using the hashtag #BerkeleyBoom to report the sounds.
According to Berkeleyside, the booms were first reported on February 26th. Most of the booms reportedly took place between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Despite numerous calls to police, authorities have not been able to determine what is causing the booms.
“I hope you guys can figure it out because it’s scaring the heck out of us,” said Marzoline.

What Is Causing Strange Sounds Around World?
As strange, unexplained sounds around the world continue to be reported by individuals, theories about what is causing the sounds range from Mother Nature and the cosmos to suspicions that in this year of 2012, linked to the end of the Mayan Grand Calendar, secret government projects could be experimenting with human reactions – like the new DARPA Battlefield Deception plan I will talk more about at the end of this report.
But NASA Solar Physicist David Hathaway says it can’t be solar plasma interactions with Earth’s magnetic fields because those sounds are below the decibel range of human hearing.
