The loud and unexplained sounds have been heard dozens of times across the country from New Jersey to Colorado for months.
In mid-November, shocked residents in Alabama were left so alarmed by the noise they even called the cops to investigate.
They dubbed it the “Bama Boom”, saying it was so powerful it actually shook houses and left windows rattling.
However, NASA and the US Geological Survey said they had no idea what was causing the booms, saying they could only theorise.
But now it is thought supersonic aircraft are most likely responsible after more booms were heard on Wednesday in in Texas.
After a number of loud explosions, a Fort Hood spokesman confirmed live-fire exercises and B-1 “Lancer” bombers were responsible.
The US Air Force has not confirmed or denied whether its jets were responsible on previous occasions, but occurrences of the booms seem to match up with days military exercises were taking place.
A boom heard on May 7 in Florida was only later confirmed to be caused by supersonic flight testing.
The US Air Force revealed the secret military mission that ended at Kennedy Space Centre was the cause of the sound.
The booms have also been heard in other parts of the world, including the Middle East and Europe.
Comment: These loud booms often coincide with earthquake like shocks and are rattling nerves around the world with increasing regularity. They are probably associated with the dramatic rise of fireballs and meteors which have been increasing each year exponentially!
