I live in Clarkson Ky and I heard 2 loud Booms around 12:00 pm. I called neighbors within a 10 mile radius that also heard both loud Booms. We have no idea what these loud Booms are or the location.

It's a propane cannon. You hook it up, it creates a massive bang, scares the birds out of your trees. If you can get them to stop sleeping in your trees they eventually stop coming there. It's annoying, but I think the fire dept or some other agency around here will let you borrow there's for free. It is annoying, it's not aliens.
yea right

The blast sound comes from a house near the golf course. A lady that has many pine trees in her yard fires the propane cannon to scare black birds from her trees so they do not roost around our neighborhood. It really works!
