Yes, my neighbor and I were just talking about it. It was about 3:30 am. He called the police to see what it was and they did not know. They also called Edison and now transformers were down. I dunno???

The explosion woke me up. Rattled the windows on the house and set car alarms off. This is the second time something like this has happened. Would love to be able to find out what it is.

Heard it also! We think it is someone in the neighborhood making bombs with welding gas. So loud it shook the walls in my house. If anyone has any info please call the Ventura Sheriffs dept. Call no matter what to let them know about it.Enough people call and something will be done.

Mary, are you serious ?? There might be someone in our neighborhood making bombs ??
When the same thing happened a month and 1/2 ago we thought that it was a transformer.
Last nights explosion had us REALLY jumping. I can't believe that no one has seen anything or reported anything. Wow.....

We heard it too and live near Moorpark and Olsen. Does anyone know about where it came from?

We heard it, thought it was an earthquake at first. After reading this post, we were reminded of the same type of noise we heard a few weeks ago (Sept.29). I am very scared now.

Anybody here consider the possibility that it was thunder or on a stretch an earthquake?

I jumped clear out of my bed this morning when it happened. Car alarms going off and dogs barking like crazy.

I didn't hear any sirens from emergency vehicles so I don't think it was an explosion or any kind. If it were there would have been some serious damage. If it were a transformer blowing up would have power outages going along with it.

I'm leaning towards a single thunder and lightning indecent

Since you were outside at the time was there a flash at all? Which parking lot were you in? I live between Flores and Arboles, just want to get a grasp of where it was. It sounded like it was on my street.

This is really strange because I started this post a year ago trying to see if anyone heard anything then and now it happens again. Hmmm wonder what the heck is going on.

Also heard this one, as well as the one last year. It shook my house, rattled windows, and set off car alarms.
Strange that there were no sirens afterwords, an explosion of that size would certainly do some kind of damage/injury if there were people nearby.
I'd really like to find out what happened.

We heard it too. Sounded like a plane crash it was so loud. How can this not be mentioned by the Police?

We heard it loud and clear over by California Lutheran University. It sounded like a deep explosion and not a transformer. And no shaking as one might expect if it were earthquake related. I had a difficult time going back to sleep and kept waiting to hear sirens. There were none. Very mysterious.

Just a few thoughts here. I looked up earthquakes to see if there were any last night, there were none in the area.

Looked up lightning strikes, there were none as well. These are things that are pretty well tracked too you can find them through a simple google search.

Since there were no sirens I don't think it was an explosion. No power outages so it wasn't a transformer (frankly it was too loud to be a transformer unless it was on my street)

No Car accidents, again, too loud for that unless something blew up - again no sirens

The only other thing that I can possibly think it might be would be a sonic boom from an aircraft. I'm not a conspiracy theorist and I know it sounds inane but what else could it be?

Pretty crazy regardless.

no flash, no fires, no sirens, no earthquakes, no thunder/ lightning just a big boom I'm going with sonic boom from an aircraft. We have Port Hueneme near us and if a plane were going that fast Vandenberg Air Force Base is only 15 min away from Thousand Oaks at 700 mph.

Rob, A sonic boom could be a possibility.
I think that many more people would have heard it if it was a sonic boom. From the rattling of my house (near Arboles & Calle Tulipan), the plane would have had to be right over head & down fairly low when it went supersonic. I think if that were the case, we would have heard the jet as it screamed past.
From other comments, it seems that some people just heard the explosion, while others (like me) felt it in the shaking of the house. A woman at work heard it-not felt it-she's farther east over by Vons at the corner of Erbes & Arboles.
