Does anyone happen to know anything about loud booming noises and flashes of light last night? It was around 12-1AM, and I don't think it was thunder.

My son and i started hearing the booms around 10:30 and at around 12:45 we were standing outside and we could still hear them, and see white flashes in the sky, it was not a storm, and it was not fireworks.

I heard and saw the explosions, too. I drove all around 287 I-20 around 1:30 am and didn't see anything. Others said they saw Chan 5 news, then black SUVs drive up, news cameras stopped. cover up

I'm glad I'm not the only one... I called the police last night. I'm at Bowen and I-20... I could see flashes... near the end there was a series of them like fireworks... but I never saw fireworks...It almost sounded like mortar fire...This seems to be the only place I've seen any postings... Nothing on the news and nothing on the internet... STRANGE... I did not find anything concerning "Fireworks in North Texas" last night either... They were very loud. Someone has to know something more...

yep, i don't buy the ufo thing, but this was something very strange. it was extremely close to my house. i saw incredibly bright light and sparks high, over the treetops. definitely not fireworks

I have not heard a thing on the News... With that much energy released you would think there was damage. I wonder if it was ordnance disposal or something... It could have been at the Alpine
Firing Range...Not sure but it was intense...but at Midnight???

Where on Fox DFW are those pics? We heard the sounds also. It was very strange, but I can't find any info about it anywhere!

Whoa, I haven't heard anything about this.

Could someone be more specific?

What's this about Black SUVs and news cameras?

the direction of the explosions and bright flashes was SW of I-20, 287 area. that is near I-20. just don't know about the ufo thing, but the sound and sight of the explosions was very strange. especially the sound

I saw the lights too. I thought they were fireworks but I never saw the actual fireworks. Just heard the booms and saw the clouds light up. Strange.
