September 23, 2015 Eastern Shore, Virginia, and Salisbury, New Brunswick, Canada - On September 22, 2015, officials with the Chincoteague Fire Department on Chincoteague Island, Virginia, told Channel 10 they had no explanation for the boom and shaking that residents were reporting. Eyewitnesses even reported "seeing flames" in the sky, but fire crews said they only spotted a "red cloud drifting across the sky out over the water that quickly dissipated." Also contacted for explanation were the U. S. Coast Guard, NASA's Wallop Island and Dept. of Wildlife and no one had an answer for the mysterious booms.
