Mystery booms rattle people who were awake in Cambridge at 1 a.m.

Around 1 a.m., Rebecca Peterson wondered:

Is something happening in Harvard/Cambridge? Heard some big booms just now.

Erin Hill reported "three loud booms."

April added they sounded like a cannon or "huge things being dropped."

Chris Peterson writes a friend heard them along Mem. Drive.

UPDATE: Allston was booming, too.
