Mysterious booms rattle Bakersfield Thursday


Another month, another round of mysterious booms heard all around Bakersfield Thursday. 

Viewers called our newsroom Thursday about very loud noises in the city and 17 News worked trying to get to the bottom of it. 

As many of you reminded us today, this same thing happened last month. 

People called from all over Bakersfield about the noise. 

Despite all the agencies we reached out to, no one could give a definite answer. 

Meadows Field said they know nothing about it, while Edwards Air Force Base said they haven’t done any drills that would have caused the racket. 

The FAA also said they weren’t responsible for it. 

As of this report, the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, Bakersfield Police Department, and China Lake Naval Base did not respond to questions about it.
