A woman reacts to hearing a strange noise coming from the sky in Texas.
Have you heard those weird, apocalyptic trumpet-like noises coming from the sky? People all over the world say they have.

So what are they? The short answer is no one knows.

The latest video of the mystery comes from Germany and was posted to YouTube last month.

In it, the puzzled photographer sticks a camera out the window as a woman asks in German, "What is that?"

In the background is heard a metallic-type groaning sound coming from the sky as if someone just put the key in the ignition of a large, invisible Close Encounters of the Third Kind kind of vehicle and started it up. The video is all the more eerie because a young boy is standing motionless in the street as the noise amplifies.

Take a listen. What do you think that is?

Mystery explosion rocks Centurion, South Africa

Residents from Centurion are baffled by a mysterious explosion that rocked parts of the area during the early hours of Sunday.

Numerous attempts by Rekord to establish exactly what had caused the loud blast, which woke residents from their sleep, proved futile.

Residents from Rooihuiskraal, Wierdapark, Amberfield, The Reeds and other connecting areas all heard the same sound and felt the rumbling.

Some readers speculated that it was yet another ATM bombing, while others believed the tremors had been caused by a light earthquake, but authorities contacted by Rekord could shed no light on the cause or the origin of what sounded to residents like a loud blast.

A decade of 'trumpets in the sky' and other eerie sounds

This recording of the trumpet-like sound shot in Germany shows a child in the street frozen with terror
A mysterious noise from the sky is continuing to baffle people all over the world - as well as giving those who hear it sleepless nights.

Sounding like a trumpet or a collective from a brass section of an orchestra, a selection of videos shot from the Canada to Ukraine, via the U.S., Germany and Belarus show strange goings on above us.

And the eerie sounds have been continuously heard at all different times and locations for almost a decade.

The first video posted on YouTube recording the unusual, unearthly sounds, was in 2008 when a user recorded the strange sounds in the sky from Homel, in Belarus.

That same year another anonymous user shared the 'ear-deafening' sounds that they insisted 'were not a hoax,' from a quiet neighbourhood believed to be in the U.S.

Kimberly Wookey from Terrace, British Columbia in Canada first captured the alien sound in June 2013, and since then she has managed to capture several recordings of the noise with her most recent being on May 7 this year.

Scientists image gravity waves through atmosphere

A model simulation illustrates how gravity waves kicked off by a cyclone east of Australia build as they travel toward space.
Whether it's a drunk camper diving carelessly into a river, or a mass of air rising over a mountain, the rule is the same: What goes up must come down.

With respect to the latter, the rising and falling of air also generates gravity waves. While such atmospheric changes usually only have a regional impact on the lower atmosphere, these ripples can stretch all across the globe in the upper atmosphere and their impact is far more dramatic.

For the first time, researchers have found a way to observe what happens when gravity waves rise towards into the upper atmosphere. A team of researchers at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research led by Senior Scientist Hanli Liu improved upon the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model, pushing it to a resolution fine enough to pick up small gravity waves at their source.

Previously able to clearly view only phenomena that were 2,000 kilometers across, they are now able to view gravity waves when they are still relatively small—only 200 kilometers across—and accurately model how this activity appears later in the upper atmosphere.

Strange sounds in Terrace British Columbia caught on video -- again



The eerie, howling noises that haunted the city of Terrace B.C. nearly two years ago are back and creepier than ever.

On Tuesday, Melissa Harris was on the phone at home when she heard a strange sound, according to CBC News. She captured the booming on video, and eventually posted it to YouTube. (Watch above.)

"In the moment I had goosebumps on my arm," Harris tells the outlet.

Two days later, another resident, Katherine Wookey, recorded similar sounds that started up while she was having her morning coffee, reports Global News.

"It had a science fiction feel to it," she told the outlet. "It was eerie."



Comment: Just last month similar sounds were recorded in Chile:

Have you heard 'the hum'? Mystery of Earth's low droning noise could now be solved

© The Independent, UK
It was often blamed on phone masts, submarine communications and pipes.
Scientists have confirmed the cause of a strange humming noise that emanates from the Earth and has baffled people for more than forty years - and was even a factor in one reported suicide.

The noise has been talked about worldwide and also made local newspaper headlines in the UK. It is often referred to as a "phenomenon" and "the hum", usually prefixed with the location of where it is heard.

In Britain, the most famous example was the "Bristol hum" that made the news in the late 1970s. One newspaper asked readers in the city: "Have you heard the Hum?" and at least 800 people said they had - according to the BBC - and some had suffered headaches and nosebleeds from it.

It has been described like "a diesel car idling in the distance" by a BBC interviewee and the maddening sound has driven people stir-crazy in trying to figure it out. Especially when they can only hear it at home and during the night.

People living on the south coast have complained this week of a constant and low-pitched sound for which they have found no cause - as reported by Plymouth Herald.

It has been mistaken for leaking pipes, phone masts, wind farms, low-frequency submarine communications and even mating fish.

"For the first few years I lost sleep, couldn't concentrate and was unable to do anything. I was constantly in tears, which put a great strain on my husband. It has changed me from an active, creative person to a stifled, angry pessimist," a woman told The Independent back in 1994.

Doctors blamed patients' abilities to hear it on tinnitus, until Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge had confirmed sometime in the 1990s that the cause is external.

Question

Strange droning mystery hum returns to Plymouth, UK


Herald reporters Emma Elder, Meiling DellaGrotte and Emily Smith investigate the mystery hum
Do you remember the mysterious story about a low-pitched humming noise which left scientists baffled and caused residents to cover their ears?

Last summer The Herald reported on the strange phenomenon creating a stir across the Plymouth area.

We thought the nuisance noise had disappeared, but now it seems to be back and more disruptive than ever. People have reported hearing the noise at night in Keyham, Devonport, West Park and St Budeaux.

Pat Finnie, who lives in Normandy Way, St Budeaux, says she and her husband have noticed the "melodic, droning" sound returning.

"I have heard it several times over the last few weeks and then on Monday and Tuesday this week," Mrs Finnie said.

"You begin to wonder whether it's you, your ears, but my husband said he could hear it too, and he doesn't usually notice it.

"My neighbours have been aware of it too, several people say they have heard the same thing."It's a very low, almost melodic sort of sound.

Comment: People all over the world have been reporting mysterious sounds like these droning noises which have been increasing in frequency in the past few years. For more information on this strange phenomenon watch the New Sott Report: Strange Noises in the Sky: Trumpets of the Apocalypse?

Mystery explosion 'shook the night' for residents of Sioux Falls, South Dakota

© djournal.com

A loud boom shook the night for a number of people in Sioux Falls - and authorities are at a loss for what might have caused it.


According to police, a "loud sound of explosion" was heard Friday morning at 12:27 a.m. Police received 17 calls of a loud noise that caused houses to shake. Numerous officers around the city also reported hearing the sound. While the noise appears to have focused in the western part of town, KSFY News has received reports of the sound being heard in both central and eastern areas, as well.

A majority of the calls came from the area of 9th Street and Valley View Road, police say. The Sioux Falls Police Department and the Sioux Falls Fire Rescue responded to the area but were not able to locate the source of the sound at this time. It is still unclear whether the noise actually centered in that area.

Comment: Though "mystery booms" have been shaking the world for years local officials are still called in to deal with the problem, and end up dismissing it when they can find no evidence of criminal activity. As SOTT has been saying year after year, these are more than likely overhead meteor explosions. Check out:
