Seneca Guns, the Uminari, Barisal guns and Mistpouffers

Post by robinson »

The Seneca Guns can be heard at any time of the year, but they appear to be most common in Fall or when there is a noticeable cooling off of the weather.

In fact, Seneca Guns seem to be more common "during temperature inversions, when cool, dense air near the ground creates a sound channel that sounds can reverberate against, creating the booms we hear at ground level," according to the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society.

Various explanations do exist, including underwater caves collapsing, angry ghosts, distant thunder reverberations, meteors entering the atmosphere, and parts of the continental shelf falling into the ocean.

In reality, nobody fucking knows.
