Another very loud boom was heard in Concord on Wednesday night.

Who heard it, and where in Concord do you live?

Exactly. It is just kids with fireworks. I don’t know why everyone get all strung up about it.

Some of you laugh this off as kid stuff, well I do not find it funny, and if you are parents of these adorable wannabee hoodlums you are just as responsible. HAHA thrown from car…or kids having good time scarring old timers….wait until someone is hurt or worse, or a house is lost from fire. You adults out there need to be responsible……if you see kids doing this turn them in, Fireworks, m1,000s dynamite is illegal……DO YOU REALLY THINK THIS IS A JOKE HATE TO SEE FOURTH OF JULY. And if you are on my street and I see you I will call the police. We just installed security cameras so hopefully you will be caught in the act. LOL

I live near Concord Blvd and Bailey. I not only heard it, but I felt it. If this happened in Holbrook Heights, we’re not talking about kids and fireworks. Someone set off a bomb.

“Here’s the weird thing-I am in Pleasant Hill and didn’t HEAR anything…but SAW a crazy large blimp-looking light filled thing with one blue light on the side.”

I’m not certain if this is what you saw, but I work in Pleasant Hill, and my co-worker pointed out a blimp in the sky near our office. It was white with a light blue stripe on the side. It also had some writing, but I couldn’t quite make all of it out. I believe one of the words was “Vistas”. I thought it might be adversing a housing track or new apartments in the area. I wonder if this was the same thing you saw last night.

For those people who think Concord Naval Weapons base is “closed”, only parts of it are closed other parts are still active.

Current operations
In 2008 control of the site was changed. The Inland Area became a Detachment of the Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, pending ultimate closure. The Tidal Area was transferred to the U.S. Army Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) and is now known as Military Ocean Terminal Concord (MOTCO). This facility was also used by the Diablo Squadron and Training Ship Concord of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps

Heard it for the last 3 nights about 8:30 or 9:00 P.M. Live near the airport. It scares my pets and it scares me! Sure am tired of it. Why can’t this mystery be solved?
