Unexpllained cannon-like sounds heard at night.

For the last several weeks from my home in Buenaventura Lakes, I have heard unexplained sounds coming from outside at very similar times from 9 to 11 ET on most nights that can be best described as sounding similar to a distant cannon fire or small sonic booms loud enough to make buildings creak.

At first, I did not think much of it/shrugged it off, but the same sounds kept coming back, with no discernible source. These occurred on mostly calm nights, with little wind and mostly clear skies, and usually last for 5-10 minutes, some following a "boom boom" pattern, other times not.

On the 18th of this month, the local ABC news station, WFTV, ran a news story on the evening newscast on "mysterious booms" being reported in Osceola County, and verified that I was not the only one that was hearing this. Most reports have come from the St. Cloud area, but the sounds are also said to be heard on different areas in Osceola County. I prefer to remain anonymous.
