Unexplained triple mystery ‘booms’ rattle houses in northern region of France

April 2, 2012FRANCE A “thud” and even “three booms” were heard in the sky near Bigouden Wednesday night, March 23rd. The phenomenon remains unexplained and apparently was repeated on the night of the 24th from north to south of Finistere. There were reports also in Côtes d’Armor and Morbihan. But where do these sounds come from? “It sounded like a thud of a child stamping his feet on the wall of the neighbor,” one witness said. Testimonials are legions Bigouden. But not only. Combrit Chateauneuf-du-Faou through Briec, Quimper, Plogastel-Saint-Germain, Pont l’Abbé, Tréméoc, Cockles, Plobannalec-Lesconil or Clohars-Fouesnant, many people on Wednesday to 21h, were intrigued by the phenomenon. Some alluded that “their houses were shaken three times.’ We’re talking about “three strong rumblings” that “have rattled houses” and even awakened some. Some people, meanwhile, heard what they described as “muffled explosions” while others are convinced that this was from “an earthquake.” But neither a reported earthquake, nor aerial maneuver by aircraft can explain the mystery. Contacted, the central office Seismological French (BCSF) states that nothing abnormal registered in this area. And for its size, Chateauneuf-du-Faou Clohars-Fouesnant, the blasts and aftershocks felt “like the equivalent of a magnitude 3 earthquake in force.” In 2005, Bigoudens remember, an earthquake on the fault of south Armorican which had a magnitude 3 on the Richter scale caused the same feelings. What then of these explosions heard and felt? An air-borne cause? Regional Centre of Western navigation, it is shown have no record this kind of phenomenon. Moreover, some also said they heard a helicopter. Proceeded by “three booms” recalling it sounded like “thunder.” One thinks of an aircraft. When questioned, the communications department of the Brest Maritime Prefecture said that there was no Navy operation in the region and even less involving helicopters. An official from the Joint Staff of the area of defense and security northwest (OGZDS), said there were no operations or “supersonic flights.” Bizarre; especially considering in March of 2003, three earthquakes also hit the Bigouden and  that phenomenon also remains unexplained. –Le Télégramme  (translated)

    They keep coming and I heard one myself here in Texas.I don’t mind saying this is scary.Thanks for the continued reporting on this .When I heard the boom to me it felt as if it came from underneath my house followed directly by the rattle of my home.R


    • It’s turning into a wild ride…

        Alvin, have there been any reports like this in the past? These “booms” and sounds from the earth have been reported on your site an others just really here recently. Sounds kinda like 2012 movie where the core was heating up and these booms are like the first few bubbles that form on the bottom of the pan before the water boils… I’m more interested to see what’s takes place than attempting to predict what will occur in the near future.

        Yes, reports of these booms go back to the 1880’s which eliminates conspiracy theories of them all being by-products of some clandestine technology. The reports seem to indicate an increase and this is not due to more or better reporting. Despite what some think, we have not just crawled out of the Stone Age into the internet & Twitter instant message century. Ham radios, fax machines, wires, telephones, teletypes (were used in 1908), telegrams have spanned the world for more than a century. So outside of military craft, we have something that is increasing in frequency and characteristics.

        History of mystery booms go back to 19th century: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mistpouffers

    People are hearing helicopter sounds with the booms but there are no helicopters or other military involvement. So what in the devil is this that has now spread to another country?

      And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder.” Revelation 14:2

      The reports of helicopter noise should not, in some of these cases, be taken too literally. Remember, like John the Revelator, people are describing what they hear with these booms and not what they see. There is a distinction. John ‘heard a voice like the roar of many waters and like the sound of thunder.’ What is a helicopter sound? It’s a sound compression wave being forced downward by rotating blades which could be perhaps similarly duplicated by a rapidly descending supersonic meteor ovehead, if it falls at the right trajectory.


    • grace says:

      maybe they are craft/vehicles we can’t see? just a thought…


  3. It reminded me of the helicopter whooshing sound that accompanied the 7.2 Easter quake in San Diego a few years back. That sound was caused by an actual EQ though.


  4. Jake says:

    Springville Alabama (Central AL) has had unexplained ‘Booms’ the past few days now.
    Shakes the house and feels like a genuine explosion, not a transformer blowing or tire etc…
    3 in the past 2 days, with each being varied, some louder without shake, some softer with etc.

    I know personally from living near military bases for many years that people there are very familar with the sounds of sonic booms and military excersises and when they say they heard somethilng different than ever before, it’s time to take a more serious look at what’s going and stop trying to feed the masses some made -up BS and tell us what’s really going on. I don’t believe for one minute that they don’t have a clue, I just think they’re too scared to tell us.


    • nickk0 says:

      Despite what many are saying on this site and others, I do *not* necessarily believe that “they” really know what is going on.
      (Whether it be NASA, the US Gov’t., the military or intelligence agencies, scientists, geologists, etc.)
      Think about it….. Not knowing what is going on, would scare “THEM”, too !! …. Which could give a motive as of why “they” offer the public, their explanations, of what they *think* is going on. “They” could be deluding themselves, as much as they are deluding everyone else !! 🙂

      Is it that “they” are too scared to tell us….OR that “they” are more scared than they let on, because “they” DON’T know what is going on ??
      I really think, that it’s the latter.


  6. bakeroid says:

    Hi all, i’ve been pondering the possible causes of the noises in the sky, and ‘space quakes’ seem the most likely explanation i’ve seen so far…
    This vid gives a good visual for it…


    • nickk0 says:

      Very interesting video ! After watching this, I think it may help explain, why these ‘booms’ usually seem to happen in the middle of the night… on the side facing away from the sun.


  7. john says:

    Hi Alvin,
    Is it possible that what many witnesses really heard were indeed helicopters, even though these machines were not seen, due to the fact that it was night time?


    • That’s a definite possibility and nothing should be ruled out at this point. While these events may fill some with foreboding and dread, and that’s understandable, the upside is the more frequent they become; the more characteristic patterns emerge.


  8. Christopher says:

    We are near Bordeaux and have had two nights of booms. Interestingly we both thought that we were dreaming until this morning when I said to my wife that I was awake on the 2nd or third boom.

    The whole experience is more than likely explainable as It was more like the sound of a cannon or artillery gun being fired.


  9. Garth Colin Whelan says:

    Always three booms… that’s not natural. Sounds like man-made…

    HAARP technology has been around since Nikolai Tesla invented 3 phase electricity. He created earthquakes around his house and his neighbors complained once they found out. He said “Give me enough power, I could split the world in two”. HE didn’t want to split the world, it was just his way of saying he has the technology; but not the power needed.


    • tonic says:

      Nikolai Tesla could very possibly explain what these booms are. He patented a device to capture energy from the atmosphere, and even claimed, that the world could be powered by it. He seemed to have an understanding of high voltages and their frequencies of operation, that we could well do with today. Towards the end of his life he became obsessed with the number three.


  10. roni says:

    On march 21st helicopter noises were reported in Ireland,as well.I just wish someone would tell us what’s really going on….how can reports be the same from 2 different parts of the world….


  11. Jim Osterbrink says:

    Spiritdaily.com speculates that it’s probably the beginning of Revelations New Heavens & Earth !


  12. Larry says:

    This is exactly what has been happening in the area of Clintonville, Wisconsin USA during March.


  13. prayntongues says:

    I watched a youtube vid last night , I can’t remember the nametag of the person who posted, but he is a pastor and a watchman. He says that it is the fallen angels disguised as aliens, positioning their spacecraft in the 2nd heavens, creating supersonic booms and shaking of buildings and the ground. They are manuevering themselves, waiting for the church to be snatched away, so they can make their move on those left behind. This is very possible as I/we are sensing that Jesus is coming soon. Maybe NASA and scientist know this but are with holding the information as to prevent mass hysteria and panic?

  15. jeebs says:

    I heard the noise from which this post originated. The third boom really shook my house here in north western France on the night concerned. For experiences and comments about the incident from english speaking expats on the subject, click on this link…


  16. jericho says:

    I can say that maybe there is a huge glaciers were moved… because of the global warming polar region are melting so maybe the sound was like that… well that’s is only my opinion…


  17. rgayer55 says:

    I live in Arkansas and here 2012 on Christmas day there were two booms, so loud it shook my friends house. One happened in the morning and the other in the afternoon. What is going on. This was not a cannon or a helicopter it was i think in the ground.
