Today, there was a sonic boom in Bangalore that rocked a bunch of eardrums and set off alarms. The loud sound was heard at various parts of Bengaluru at around 1:45 PM. Many residents claimed they heard a loud 'boom', felt their homes shaking and their windows rattling. This went on for at least 5 seconds. The Bengaluru Police Commissioner said they are looking into it, and have even asked the Air Force Control Room to check if this was caused by a flight. .
Twitter has been buzzing about just what the heck it could be, leading to some pretty far out hypotheses, and a whole lot of funny content.
Others just thought it was straight up aliens. After all, it does sound like something otherworldly.
That sound you heard? Don't worry, it was just #2020 burping after eating up almost half of the year. #Bangalore— Silly Stree 🧞♀️ (@23khyati) May 20, 2020
Investigations into what actually happened are ongoing. Pretty freaky stuff, huh?
