Well, the latest report of "booms" and "trumpet" noises is coming out of East Texas, and those noises come along with all kinds of strange, flashing lights of all colors and varieties.

We live in East Texas, close to a small town called Gilmer. Starting late 2011 we started seeing a flashing light in the sky. It comes from all around you in the sky. It is diffuse, you can’t see it straight on. It seems to come from your peripheral vision. Sort of like a flash blub going off behind you. You do not see where it comes from. When they first started they were faint and at first we wondered if we were really seeing them. Then they stopped for a while. When they restarted they were a bit stronger and have become stronger over the course of the last several months.
People have been hearing weird booms and trumpeting sounds throughout the world, this is not a new phenomenon (I've reported on it many times) and it's not just happening in Texas:
It seems to me other folks should be hearing this stuff. If you're one of those lucky(?) folks, report it!
