    Boom?

    "Mystery Boom And Unexplained Shakes Freak Out People In New Hampshire"

    Did anyone experience this? FAA and USGS deny knowledge. Gender reveal? (YES, it might have been!)

    I live right in the target area and didn't notice anything. I was in the middle of mowing my lawn so likely wouldn't have noticed it anyway, but I never seem to catch these mysterious rumbles...

    I felt/heard it. I was walking the dog, not far from dug-mowing-the-lawn in fact.

    Good thing no one was actually hiking in the area.

    Many folks saying it was Boeing unmanned X-37B or X-37C on re-entry.

    Meteors don’t re-enter the atmosphere, they enter. Sheesh.
