From my inside guy at Vandenberg:

" DID YOU HEAR IT?

A Launch Alert reader sent me the following e-mail regarding a loud
boom he heard late Sunday afternoon:

"Did you happen to hear a loud boom from the sky at about 16:45 today
1/15/2012 ?

I did here at my home in Tujunga Ca.. It was loud enough to make me go
outside for a look see even though I had the feeling that the sound
had come from the sky rather than from the neighborhood. Other
neighbors also came outside to see what happened.

I did some searching but came up with no other reports of the boom.
Then I looked for recent quake activity. Bingo, at the exact same time
micro quakes had been recorded in two places but they were much to far
away to have possibly been felt here. The first one was in the
Hawthorne Nv. area and about a minute and a half later in the area of
The Geysers Ca.. http://www.data.scec.org/recent/recenteqs/Quakes
/nc71718021.html

Could a sonic boom from an aircraft, meteor or another piece of space
junk traveling from east to west have caused those seismic readings ?
This says it does happen:

http://authors.library.caltech.edu/3348/1/CATjasa02.pdf

I called a friend of mine who lives in Oakhurst Ca. which is much
closer to the track between Hawthorne and The Guysers but still to far
away for a person to feel the micro quakes that were recorded there.
He also heard a boom in the sky at the same time.

Given the great quantity of seismic events recorded in our region
every day especially at The Guysers I realize it may well be a
coincidence that we had two recorded events at about the same time but
it does have me wondering.

I know this for sure. Something went boom at about 16:45 today and I
am not the only one who heard it and want's to know what it was. I
also know that I could find out tomorrow that somebody set off an M-80
on the mountain a couple of blocks away and the mystery will be
solved."

Did any of you hear anything? A few of you may have access to seismic
or infrasonic data. Did these sensors detect anything? Finally, did
those of you who work in public safety hear any reports of this event?"

Weird things abound...

I heard its viral marketing for some soon to be announced flick.

Beach goat, you live very near Vandenberg AFB, they launch and test missiles there. So that's my non tinfoil hat guess.

As far as the other strange noises, I'm guessing viral marketing, the wind or GODZILLA!

...or maybe it was just that bean burrito you got from Joselito's...

BigDinWaun+
I would like to buy her for $1
BigDinWaun+
Yep, went to the original pic on page 82 of your uploader cache... nice.
spankerchi+
She hasn't responded yet. I gave her your number. Maybe she has a place to go already, but who knows.
spankerchi+
She was a dancer back a few yearsago. Yes, THAT kind of dancer.
spankerchi+
Jesus, I've uploaded a lot of pics here...
spankerchi+
Took me an hour to dig it up. The rest of the pic is in my upload archive if you want it THAT bad.

Srous on the nude pics. It could win you a sale. You know... push it across the finish line.
BigDinWaun+
Teeth on the Spanker-ex? Or teeth on the potential suitor/caretaker?
BeachGoat
Do teeth count? Sometimes that can be a problem.
BeachGoat
Someone with an income & home is a good start. Danny is a good catch, also. A bit thin, but well humored. Nice hippie welder.
BeachGoat
And on "meepy-Exy", pic please. Makes the sale easier. I'm thinking Bob or Jay, who has the SpiderPig dog.
BeachGoat
You have our address. the money goes to Kathy next door who has already paid for the dang food.
spankerchi+
(sigh) Where do I send the money?

$5 says she looks like a tired ham that wears flip flops and oversized t-shirts

If you can find this used up party girl a forever home, I'll owe you big-time.

Okay Goat. You seem experienced in dealing with the lost and downtrodden. I'll give her your number.
BeachGoat
I know a dozen men here that need just that, in a coastal location.
spankerchi+
Yup, great gal now. Wonderful girlfriend material. Your's for the taking.
spankerchi+
She's CHANGED.
spankerchi+
I may have mentioned her, but ignore all that.
spankerchi+
She's the ex.
BigDinWaun+
Did you find her at an auction? In a cargo container?
BigDinWaun+
Spanker... I have never dated an Asian woman before... perhaps this will be a good entry point.
spankerchi+
Scratch that. I'll deliver.
spankerchi+
Hey, anybody wanna short little asian woman? She's VERY friendly and knows how to cook. Just PM me and I'll send you an addy for pick up.

also, congrats on not snapping in half in your accident. I gave up riding my bike in LA because everyone drives like meep.

I'm surprised those shiftless hippies managed to do anything beyond sitting in the bushes outside of Tate's place
BeachGoat
That whole peyote church thing I did in 76 could have ended up just like Manson...good thing that old woman came up and name me "meep" (Snake meep), so I left with a picking crew, and ended up swimming with nubiles & sharks in Corpus Crispy
LOki
You sure were lucky little fellah, so very lucky.

Reminds me how lucky I was not to listen to Jim Jones back in '78

Dang it, after a week, I guess I'll have to submit to the hospital; I am actually broken. Ribs are meepered up.
Pepper
I don't mean YOU! You guys are cool, but life is meep-meeping me and I'm not dealing with it very well.
Pepper
Do you ever have one of those days where you just want to die and say "meep you" Well, it's one of those.
spankerchi+
...for the bread-winning type Goat labors 'n such.
spankerchi+
Okay. I heard that he was okay. Just checking to see if he was still mobile.
Pepper
Spanky, the cruiser got a dented basket, but Goat kind of straightened it. I'm more worried about him. meeping yikes.

Looks like this is shaping up to be an interesting day. All I want to do is sleep.
