An alleged video shot during the moment when one of these thunderous explosions were heard was uploaded to YouTube. The video shows a string of colorful orbs floating in the dark sky just after midnight on January 7th, 2013.

Southwestern Indiana authorities are trying to determine the source of mysterious late-night booms that are giving area residents a rude awakening.

Twenty-four-year-old Caleb Donahoo says he’s heard the booms each night this week at his Evansville-area home. He says the first one, on Monday, was so loud it shook his home and rattled its windows.

Evansville-Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency director Sherman Greer tells the Evansville Courier & Press that so far, local authorities are at a loss to explain the loud noises.

The booms have fueled rampant speculation on social media, with theories ranging from a blown power transformer to a meth explosion or a sonic boom from some sort of aircraft. Others have speculated the noises could be mine blasts at a nearby coal mine.

A series of mysterious booms over Indianapolis around 12:14 am on jan 7th 2013. I say three big ones total. when we heard the first one a few minutes before, i grabbed my phone because of all the sirens. the lights would have been in the northeast direction. I live in 46th & Sherman area. Last boom shook our house so hard it cracked a window. I don’t know if these are planes, Missiles or UFOs but my family was terrified

I couldn’t verify the authenticity of the video, but if it’s real, it sounded terrifying.

Anyone GhostTheory readers near the area?
