A mysterious booming noise in a small California town has residents baffled & has sparked many conspiracy theories.kxtv_sonoma_boom_sound_jc_160720_31x13_1600Every weekday, between 11 a.m. & 2 p.m., a thunderous noise rocks through Sonora, California, according to locals. The cause of the mysterious booms remains a mystery, w/local residents pointing to everything from mining operations to aliens.

Glen White, a local teacher & geologist who has researched the sound extensively, told local ABC affiliate KXTV-TV that he thinks the noise comes from bombs & grenades exploding. White said he believes the explosions come from an Army depot outside of Hawthorne, Nevada, about a 100 miles away from Sonora. There, a private company disposes & dismantles old munitions, White said.

“They go through old munitions bombs, grenades, then they destroy them,” White explained, & has video footage to back up his claim.

Ken Thomas, a contracting officer for the Hawthorne Army Depot, told ABC News today that they do detonate munitions regularly at the depot when the munitions are past their shelf-life, but he is not convinced that it can be heard in Sonora.

“It doesn’t feel right that what we’re doing here would be heard 200 miles away when there’s a mountain range in between us,” Thomas said. “My office is 27 miles from where they detonate the old munitions, I only hear it here maybe 1 time a month & just barely & it’s like ‘Was that a boom?'”

While White thinks he has solved the town’s mystery, he told KXTV-TV he remains open to hearing other people’s theories, as long as they are backed up by scientific research.
