By Andrea Tritschler

A “loud boom” had residents in Brighton and Lochbuie on edge around 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20.

The suspicious noise was described as sounding like a sonic boom or something falling from the sky, according to residents in the area.

“I felt and heard it in Lochbuie on Willow Drive. Thought a tree fell on the house,” Amanda Hoffman said on Facebook.

Vibrations apparently accompanied the noise, which some said caused their houses to shake.
