Heard in Mysterious Boom Phenomen Philadelphia and the World

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians15:52

Like in the Tarot Judgement card representing a time of change. Lighting strike very quickly like a twinkling of an eye.

All over the world there has been increasing reports of mysterious boom phenomenon since 2011. Philadelphia is no stranger to these loud booming sounds, so loud that they can wake the dead. In 2011, the inexplicable sounds were reported in Northeast Philadelphia on May 28, 2011. Last Saturday, February 08, 2014, the boom accompanied by lightning were heard again at 6:30 pm (est) and then more recently February 19, 2014.

The mysterious boom phenomenon have several components they are loud, have major flashes of light and causes glass to crack or shatter. Scientists do not know what causes them, they do not only happen in the winter time but they also occur in the spring and can occur at any time of season.  Once they are heard in an area, they are multiple occurrences like earthquakes there may be ‘after shocks’.

In the Jewish tradition, the Shafor is blown on the Day of Judgement for Rosh Hashana or the Feasts of Trumpets. Could the mysterious boom phenomenon be some type of warning from above about some type of universal change.


Linda Moulton Howe of Earthfiles.com has been tracking mysterious boom phenomenon for some time and wrote about the recent event in Philadelphia:

February 19, 2014 – Loud Boom and “Big Ball of Light”
Exploded Windows This Morning in Philadelphia —
A Strange Thunderstorm?

“I was in Vietnam in 1969, and it was about like that.
I thought I was hit with a rocket and that’s how intense the
explosion from whatever it was …”

– Anthony Amadio, Hermit Street resident, Roxborough section, Philadelphia

At about 10:15 AM Eastern in the 500 block of Hermit Street
in Philadelphia’s Roxborough section, eight houses experienced
cracked and broken windows from a large burst of light energy
that made a boom sound. See: WPVI-TV.

Pat Amadio said she saw “a big bright ball” of light in the sky that “disappeared.” Anthony Amadio told WPVI-TV, Channel 6, “I was in Vietnam in 1969, and it was about like that. I thought I was hit with a rocket and that’s how intense the explosion from whatever it was – the lightning, the tree or the transformer – I’m not sure.” Philadelphia PECO utility was investigating the possibility that a lightning bolt struck a PECO transformer in the neighborhood.
