Baraboo, Wisconsin Lights and Booms
UPDATE 4/5: Here are some videos about Baraboo.
Another small town in Wisconsin is hearing booms but this time they’re being accompanied by lights. That’s odd because I thought the booms were coming from the ground. What do lights in the sky have to do with booms in the ground. There were no reports of thunderstorms and the National Weather Service can’t make any connection in terms of weather. The lights were observed BEFORE the booms.
From the article here:
“I observed a large flash of light followed by a ‘boom,’” the officer wrote in his report. “I advised dispatch of this information and my belief that it was possibly a transformer.”
However, Sauk County Sheriff’s Department dispatchers contacted Alliant Energy, and reported the company knew of no power outages in the Baraboo area.
Is this related to earthquakes as they say occurred in Clintonville. There is something called “earthquake lights”.
An earthquake light is an unusual luminous aerial phenomenon that reportedly appears in the sky at or near areas of tectonic stress, seismic activity, or volcanic eruptions.
From what I read, it would occur during a real earthquake. The wiki definition says nothing about flashes of light followed by booms. Earthquake lights are not well understood but you can read more at the link here. The lights don’t make any sense because the booms are supposedly coming from the ground.
Now we have booms in Clintonville, Montello and Baraboo. The events seem to be on a path.
New Zealand Booms and Lights
A green, orange and white fire ball left a sort of strange corkscrew trail as it flew at high speed across New Zealand. Two minutes AFTER, a very loud boom was heard.
From the article:
A Hanmer Springs resident said they heard ‘a loud boom’ about two minutes after it streaked past.
‘Not sure if hit the ground or sonic boom, perhaps the latter, very exciting! Much more exciting than putting the washing out.’
Astronomers say it was very unlikely the meteor will be found. Article is here.

Oklahoma Booms and Lights
In this video, a family disturbed by a loud boom steps outside to investigate. They find nothing. A few minutes AFTER, they witness a very bright light appearing to be suspended in the sky. The light is coming from the direction of a military base.
They seem perplexed by the intensity of the light and wonder if it’s a plane. The wife says there is smoke coming down. He goes on to point out that a plane would have crashed. You can see the light literally suspended as if its coming from a source in the sky. My first thought was a flare but that wouldn’t cause a loud boom and illuminate that large of an area. Clearly this couple has never seen this before. If it’s over a base maybe it’s a weapon or military experiment.
Pocono Lights and Booms
Folks in the Poconos heard thunder they swear was no thunder. I realize I already covered this but here it is again for comparison sake. A witness saw lights BEFORE the booms. From the article here:
“My son was at the back door letting the dogs out and he reported that he saw a large flash of light fill the sky toward/above the FedEx distribution site on 940, then he heard a loud boom. It didn’t look like lightning, it looked like a bomb blew up in the air. I was on the second floor of the house; I didn’t see anything but I heard the boom and felt it shake the house. The floors shook; I have never felt lightning shake the house like that before and we’ve been up here 20 years!”
