A "boom" louder than any fireworks or blown transformer I've ever heard, happened last night (Saturday night/Sunday a.m.) around 12:30. My husband and a few of our neighbors went outside to see what it was. I haven't seen anything on the web or on the news. Anyone know what it was?

I heard the same thing. It shook my entire house - rattling the windows. It was pretty scary. I live on 168th - wondering if you do as well. I have been searching the news as well but have not heard anything. I was looking outside for quite some time and no sign of the police or any other action. Started to wonder if it was a sonic boom from an airplane???

We heard the same thing at 12:30am Saturday morning on January 5, 2008. 2 booms about 20 minutes apart, actually. I like the sonic boom theory. Makes sense with all the planes and the military base close by. But am still curious to know.
