A strong earthquake, volcanic eruption, rocket launch or underground nuclear test can send a train of acoustic shock waves high into the atmosphere. As they barrel upward, the sound waves steepen and intensify into shocks, crashing into space more and more intensely before the particles collapse back down in a signature pattern.
