Mystery surrounds a loud bang heard early this morning in Belconnen and Gungahlin but it’s not the first to be experienced in Canberra’s north.
There have also been reports of an orange flash seen in the sky, which the ANU says discounts a meteor being responsible.
That description is reminiscent of reports two years ago of a big bang in Holt that attracted many theories but no actual cause.
And back in 2012 a big bang was reported in Nicholls, where houses were shaken.
Just like this time, Geoscience can’t help, and the police and ESA have no idea.
That leaves Defence, but don’t expect it to let on if the military have been up to anything.
But we asked anyway.
A Defence spokesperson said it was definitely not the culprit, saying there were no training exercises being conducted at present.
What do you think was the cause?
