Characteristics: The object made a sound, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Unseen object's, Very loud sonic booms over Mebane NC

Two Extremely loud sonic booms over Mebane N.C.

Ok many people in Mebane heard it over a wide area, car alarms went off and folks all over were awakened Sunday morning at about 1:10 am . it was one Very loud sonic boom followed about 3 to five seconds later by another not quite as loud. which leads me to beleave it was more than one object I ran outside and thatís when I heard the jet engines (or jets) heading south southwest from where I live. 1 mile north of 85-40 and Buckhorn rd.(I beleave the engine sounds were from fighter type craft not Commercial transport planes.) Im pretty shure it was more than 1 due to the two very separate sonic booms.

there was a cloud ceiling so I never saw any lights.

Donít want to get any of our A.F. pilots in any trouble, but it did startle a lot of people.
