Heard it too in East Belmont. Thought it might have been Cletus out with his 12 gauge.

I'm hearing confirmation that it was construction noise from the new nuclear research facility on Vicory Drive.

Actually an old man South of Central fires a real live cannon when the mood strikes him. He's above the law and it's all powder, no ball, no harm. Been going on for years now. Fact.
