Loud Unexplained Boom Rattle Glasgow Scotland Residents, Flashes of Light Seen
This getting a little freaky if you ask me, so it would seem this boom (either the same one or others occurring around the same period of time) was heard world wide…
via The Scottish Sun:
A mysterious boom that “shook windows” in the west of Scotland has been heard all around the world.
Worried punters took to social media after hearing the loud bang around 4pm yesterday afternoon. They reported hearing the strange sound in areas in and around Glasgow, such as Woodlands in the west end and Knightswood.
Twitter user @Planet_Pedro wrote: “Jeez. What was loud bang in West of Glasgow??” Another punter then said that they “heard it in Woodlands.” And @Planet-Pedro responded: “no. shook windows here.”
There were flashes over Kilsyth on Tuesday night as well. Lights flickered and tv/mobiles signal were lost for a few minutes.

While the source of the sound has yet to be accounted for, some believe that it could be linked to other similar booms being heard around the planet.
According to reports in the US, a mysterious bang was heard in an area of Colorado – over 4,300 miles away. Local media outlets told how locals took to social media to also report the strange sound. And it was powerful enough to tip a chair over on their porch in the American town of Lakewood.
The two sounds are part of a growing list of similar booms being reported in various locations all across the world. And they have experts baffled as to what is causing them.
Some believed the boom in Glasgow was linked to the launch of a new CalMac ferry yesterday.
