Unusual and mysterious news tidbits

Phenomena produce theories, but no answers
What's behind those mysterious booms?

Life can serve up a good mystery every once in a while. Weird things happen that defy explanation that make us wonder how much we really know about the world.

Something of the sort happened in San Diego County shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 4, and so far no one has come forward with an explanation.

Whatever it was, it caused a woman's bed to shake in Lakeside. It created waves in a backyard pool in Carmel Valley. It set off car alarms in Kearny Mesa and rattled windows from Mission Beach to Poway to Vista. At various spots throughout the county, people reported a rumbling sound or a booming noise.

Scientists insist it wasn't an earthquake. The Federal Aviation Administration has no record of any planes producing a sonic boom by breaking the sound barrier.

Something May Be Fishy About Hum Keeping Bay Ridge Residents Awake

HMMMM. This mysterious sound in the waters off Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, has baffled residents for months. A low pitched vibration known simply as the "Bay Ridge Hum" heard near the shore next to the Verrazano Bridge has left some locals not only scratching their heads in frustration but deprived of sleep, too.

While several hypotheses as to the cause - passing trains, treatment plants, even UFOs - have been floated, so to speak, one new hunch is that fish may cause it.

"Everyone is just dying to find out what is making that noise," the district manager of Brooklyn Community Board No.10, which includes Bay Ridge, Josephine Beckmann, said. "We have been getting calls since last spring.

""I heard it two nights in a row at about 3 a.m.," Ridge resident Anissa Malloy said. "My kid woke me up at 3 a.m. yelling and screaming, after I quieted him down and attempted to go back to sleep. ... It's like a very low-pitched vibration. I don't know what to compare it to."

Another Bay Ridge resident, Concetta Butera, said it was in April 2005 that he "noticed this awful noise."

As complaints mounted, local officials attempted to discover the source of the noise that was keeping residents up at night. Even the Department of Environmental Protection tried to solve the mystery, but managed only to eliminate obvious suspects like the Owls Head Water Treatment Facility and a local park that some thought may have been the culprit.

Record meteorite hit Norway

As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

At around 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, June 7th, 2006 residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark could clearly see a ball of fire taking several seconds to travel across the sky.

A few minutes later an impact could be heard and geophysics and seismology research foundation NORSAR registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m. at their station in Karasjok.

How does Criss Angel do those amazing things?
