Big Thud [in south New Jersey. What was it?]

Feb 1 1:38 pm South Jersey, 7 mi. SW of Atlantic City. A great BIG Thud just shook my house. Something similar happened a week ago and was felt in Ocean City, NJ.

Seismic event?..Sonic Booms?

A week ago it was sonic booms.

heres the story from last week.
I’d assume it was the same thing this time


Been sitting here in north Jersey all morning. Didn’t feel a thing.

Another article that I can’t find right now explained better why the atmospheric conditions and the stealth characteristics of the F-35 contributed to having the booms heard that strongly on land. They were flying in an area off shore that is often used for supersonic flights without complaint.
