No one seems to know what it was.

Verde Valley residents speculated the sound could have been caused by sonic booms while others believed an earthquake caused the disturbance, though the U.S. Geological Survey indicated no unusual activity.That’s the consensus of law enforcement and emergency responders concerning two loud booms that echoed across the Verde Valley on Tuesday, Dec. 4. The booms, described as “thunder-like” rumblings consisting of two distinct booms, occurred one after the other shortly before 5 p.m. The mystery booms were heard in Jerome and as far away as Flagstaff.

However, no one has a clue what caused it. Despite wide-spread reports, no law enforcement agency in the area has indicated there is an investigation into the matter.

Verde Valley residents speculated the sound could have been caused by sonic booms while others believed an earthquake caused the disturbance, though the U.S. Geological Survey indicated no unusual activity.

Luke Air Force Base, located in Glendale, confirmed Thursday, Dec. 6, it didn’t have an aircraft over the area at the time the incident occurred.

    The only "logical" thing I can think of, other than an earthquake (which apparently did not register on any seismograph), would be an underground explosion of combustible gasses in one of the many abandoned mineshafts located in the area. That may not be a viable explanation either, as I would assume that would register on a seismograph as well.
