Two very loud booms today at approx 11 am and 3 pm rattled the windows of my Fairfax Station home. Much louder than the usual artillery from Quantico. Any ideas as to cause?

We live in Burke as well. There have been loud booms for the last 10 minutes. Sounds like fireworks but more rhythmic. Very strange.

Heard the booms here too. No idea what it was, but it did upset the kids.
