The residents of Bangalore have been left with no clue of what they have heard on Wednesday noon and they have been putting out of what could be the reason behind the sudden, loud, and mysterious noise which had shaken various parts of the city.
It was around 1.30 pm on Wednesday when the residents of the garden city of India had heard the sound which they haven't heard before. Some of the residents have claimed that they heard a boom and loud noise and others hopped out of their residences by feeling a quake which, they said, lasted for five seconds. The noise had left the people to air their expressions.
Most of them took to social media and shared their experiences and the mystery had also brought out the term 'Aliens' as it has been trending on Twitter. Being vested with no clue, the authorities are yet to ascertain the root and reason of the noise and they have been investigating. The residents stated that the noise was like an aftershock from an earthquake.
The speculations have been attributing the noise to a 'sonic boom' caused by a fighter jet that was flying over the city faster than the speed of the sound. Such kind of sonic boom would be heard when the jets fly faster than the speed of the sound and this sonic boom would be the output when shock waves are created in the atmosphere whenever the flying object moves faster than sound.
However, the development is yet to be confirmed by the police or Air Force. According to the city police commissioner, the city has reported no damages anywhere and the department hasn't received any calls to the emergency number 100 and the department has informed about the incident to the Air Force Control Room to ascertain whether it was a flight and the control room is yet to issue the confirmation.
Bengaluru is a home for Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and it was speculated that it would have conducted the regular flight tests. However, the aerospace company has denied its involvement, and the Karnataka State Disaster Management Center has asserted that there is no earthquake activity recorded today in the city as the seismometers didn't capture any ground vibration.
