At around 11 pm in the Goleta area, I was alarmed by a thumping noise. No, it was not a car. I went outside to hear thumping in the distance, and immediately called my mother to see if she heard from the east side of Santa Barbara and she confirmed.

Any ideas?

I heard it, went out to look and saw nothing, I'm on La Cumbre. That rumble sure was powerful! I assumed that's what it was, glad to confirm it.

The launch wasn't visible after less than ~2 minutes. But at the speed of sound, the rumble takes 6-7 minutes to reach SB from VAFB. So by the time you heard it, it was all over.

Spectacular launch of the Atlas V rocket which you could see in its full glory last night. A mighty orange glow, all the way up to stage 1 separation followed (about 3 minutes after the launch) by one minute (or so) of low bass rumbling sound. Very spectacular and always such a pleasure to enjoy ..

Rocket launch from Vandenburg at 10:50ish pm last night. Rumbled for quite some time.
