Three Loud Trumpet-like Blasts from the Sky

Somewhere between I would say 1900-1910 hours this evening (June 13, 2019), my husband and I were sitting outside in our little popup camper, enjoying the cooler air and listening for bird sounds. The just out of the sky, we hear this enormously loud trumpet blast, three times! (He said it sounded more like a trombone because of its timbre.)

On my piano, I found the notes were within a four-key (such as C,E,E and F - a major key signature) and were slurred (no break in-between the four-note phrase). Each blast lasted about a second. So loud! We both agreed we had never heard anything like this and have no idea what could've been its source except to say that it came from the sky! We discussed all of the options we could think of and came up with nothing that we're aware of that could emit these blasts.

We are both retired Federal employees. I am a former Public Affairs Officer for the USFS.


Actually, we are located east of Reardon and west of Spokane (just west of the ATV park just west of the Spokane River) in a coulee. I don't think I was very accurate in my description of where we were because I was still stirred up over that noise! If you travel Highway 2 east of Reardon, Coulee Hite Road is a left hand turn off Highway 2. We were sitting in our little pop up camper which we have set up on our ranch property right now; it's so nice to enjoy our coffee there because it's cool (in the morning and evening) with the breezes.

I will ask our neighbors if they have heard any noises. We heard another one last night, but just a single loud blast; however, it was different from the three blasts we heard the other evening. In fact, my husband and I are still talking about it, racking our brains for trying to remember anything similar that we've heard but so far, no luck!
