Anyone have any idea about the sonic boom heard in the area around 12:30p today? Didn't see anything posted on twitter from Vandenberg. Both my dog & heard it.

When I hear one of these sonic booms I open up FlightRadar24 website and you can usually find a military refueling tanker hanging out on the ocean north of Vandenburg. Id be curious to know if these are military exercises happening off the coast

MP805 - it's one of my favorite new sites. I've heard at least 2 sonic booms today and just checked. There are some Hawker Hunters flying around off Oxnard. Wish I was in one!

I heard it also at that time. I'm on the Mesa.

That's interesting, I felt something...at first I thought it might have been a quick quake but it was only the sliding glass doors that rattled. I looked on USGS for a while and saw nothing for our area. I also thought it might have been a sonic boom or some kind of testing but could not find anything. It was very quick...left a negative vibe from the burst of energy that was forced....

So, breaking the sound barrier is hard on you?
The 70's were pretty special.
We thought our house would break apart.
Ain't nuthin new

Chico B—people are just curious, not worried. I’m curious, too.

We heard two loud booms last night before midnight down here in Carpinteria.

Quite a few sonic booms today...looks like some sort of military training off the coast. Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker 57-1469 flying circles right off of Vandenburg.

SACJON - Thanks for pointing that out, looks like that Hawker Hunter Mk.58 Reg. N335AX flew all the way down off the coast of Mexico and back to Oxnard. First time I've ever heard of this plane..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawker_Hunter.

Thanks y'all. I felt and heard only one, but I was waling in the hallway and leaned against the wall and prayed! (I'm just an atheist waiting for the big quake, and traumatized by the October lightning storm. Laugh at me all you want. But experience it overhead first.)

The company that flies the Hunters also had some Kfir C2 aircraft that are supersonic (Mach 2.3).
