This might be the sound of high voltage circtuit breakers closing; maybe Nucor turns on their equipment at 5AM.

Someone may have recorded it. Having not heard it at Alki I'm interested to know what it sounded like. Has anyone checked security cameras around the area the boom was heard?

This may sound a little outrageous, but at that exact time, a garbage truck lifted and dropped to the ground a very large commercial trash receptacle bin three times. It was extremely loud. This took place in the alley behind duo's lounge, on Avalon and Charlestown. Ok, I think I know what they were.

I woke me then too and again, I waited, figuring I would hear sirens, Something THAT LOUD had to be something, but no, never heard any sirens... Hmmmm, the mystery continues. dundun dun!!!!

I think it's a (wrong) case of thinking it wasn't that close to me, I'm sure someone else would be calling the police. Guilty as charged, I did not call the police either.

I also thought it was a police flash bang. If it wasn't the police, could it have been the FBI or something? Perhaps they can't tell the public about it. I am sorry but this was way too loud for the police to have no idea what it was. We are near camp long and it scared the heck out of us. I also thought it was a police flash bang.

We did indeed call right away as it sounded like a large hunting rifle to us (Highpoint Area). The police listed it as "suspicious circumstances" and I assume that since we were the only ones they didn't take it seriously. So next time, if you see or hear something just call. SPD says it over and over again. Maybe this wouldn't still be a mystery. so 30 comments and not a single one of you called the police?

Not guns, more like explosions. We're near 35th and Juneau. How can something that big be such a mystery? 5:15am. 3 HUGE booms. Not guns, more like explosions. We’re near 35th and Juneau.

I said "what was that?" out loud but my partner didn't even wake. Definitely thought it was a deep bass type sound but very staccato/short. Still very different from the bombing we used to hear from Ft. Lewis in the 1990s growing up in Spanaway.
