Loud Noises

Does anyone know what the loud booming noises were tonight?  I thought they were just fireworks, but I guess they were heard over a large area.

I heard it too! It went for quite a while and was pretty constant. I was thinking it was thunder.

It was a fireworks show, it looked like it was in Papio, I could just see the show in the distance.

LaVista Daze. I wonder if they spelled it daze instead of days just so there can be an E at the end?

It was really loud at 52 and Center and my mom was out at a party at Rockbrook Village and it was loud there too.

The shoot from the LaVista Sports Complex near 66th and Harrison so I wonder if it is amplified being down an a valley?
