A sonic boom in Bangalore rattled the city yesterday at around 1:30 PM, that according to people on Twitter the sound was everything from house shaking and window-rattling to the sound of the economy crashing and Jaadu’s return.

And soon enough, the city started to find the so of the unusually loud sound, that lasted up to 5 seconds, prompting some to believe it as an earthquake. The State’s disaster monitoring agency quickly dismissed the claim.

Another group on Twitter apparently seemed very intrigued in exploring the possible extraterrestrial connections with the sonic boom.

One even made a checklist of 2020’s fate until now and wrote: “Bengaluru please confirm, can we tick Aliens”

However, soon after the #bangaloreboom and #alien started to trend on top of Twitter, it became clear the source of the sound was something normal, at least.

The sonic boom in Bangalore was not an earthquake

Bengaluru Police Commissioner said they’re investigating the loud sound that was heard in major neighborhoods in B’luru including Cooke Town, Old Madras Road, Ulsoor, Vivek Nagar, among others.
Prior to the police confirmation that is still under investigation, an Indian Air Force spokesperson wrote on Twitter that the sound was from an aircraft with a supersonic profile that took off from Bluru Airport during a routine test flight.

“The aircraft was far away from the city limits when this occurred. The sound of a sonic boom can be heard and felt by an observer even when the aircraft is flying as far away as 65 to 80 kilometers away from the person,” the statement added.
