Homeowners in Fair Oaks, Sacramento, US, have been disturbed by the manic sounds of explosions in recent weeks.
One resident’s doorbell camera caught the moment an explosion went off on Sunday.
In the video, filmed at 10.15pm, a pickup truck can be seen backing out of a drive with its headlights on full beam.
On the right-hand side of the screen, a flash can be seen before a loud bang is heard.
The flash from the explosion lights the night time scene.
The local community turned to Facebook to set up a forum to track the times, directions and size of the sounds in the hope to determine what it is.
It now has 850 members and features dozens of shared experiences of the sounds echoing throughout the community.
Last weekend, the local sheriff’s department received multiple reports of the explosions and sent their helicopter and several deputies to investigate.
Another member of the group added: “I think there’s an abnormal amount of solar activity happening in the last few months.”
A third person said: “This is really getting creepy that so many people in different areas hearing loud ‘booms’ around the same time of night almost every night and no one can figure it out.”
Investigators now say they’re confident it’s caused by powerful illegal fireworks with the blast equivalent to half a stick of dynamite.
Only days ago, the US Air Force stated that mystery object falling from the sky was not one of their planes.
