Strange Sounds


Strange Sounds in the Sky, Halton, UK - August 23rd 2012

During a recording session we heard strange sounds outside and grabbed the camera to see if we could record them. We managed to catch the last three bursts and then it all fell silent. These sounds fascinate us and would love to hear from others who have heard similar sounds. We are near ICI so it could be them but I've never heard anything like this before in all my time living here.

More strange sky sounds, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Loud noise remains a mystery in Huon Valley, Tasmania

A mysterious rumbling noise remains a hot topic in the Huon Valley some 10 days after it was heard.

Hundreds of residents are still unable to explain the source of the 20-second roar.

The noise was first reported after a Huonville dam bank burst on July 15, causing the evacuation of 100 residents.

"It woke me up about 10pm we had no idea what was going on at the time but in hindsight maybe it was the dam breaking," a Scenic Hill Drive resident said on July 16.

But the council said the noise would not have been caused by the dam incident.


Strange Sound Reported in San Diego

Residents from Chula Vista to Oceanside reported a large rumble around 12:45 p.m. Friday.

The mysterious sensation was described by some people as sounding like a door slamming while others said it was strong enough to rattle windows.

A check of the U.S. Geological Survey website showed no earthquake activity.

NBC 7 San Diego's Dagmar Midcap was in Del Mar at the time and described it as a "Sonic 'rumble'" She tweeted, "according to my contacts at USGS, not seismic but rather sonic."

Two months ago, when San Diegans heard a similar sound, there was evidence of chaff on weather radar. Chaff is a material sometimes emitted during military exercises.

On Friday, however, Tina Stall with the National Weather Service said there was no visible chaff in the area at the time the noise was reported.

The mysterious sound had both residents and experts scratching their heads. Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientist Kristoffer Walker said he felt it too, and looked into microphones recorded from MCAS Miramar.

Evidence from his research revealed an answer.

Mystery boom and shaking in Georgia identified as an earthquake?

A mysterious boom that shook portions of Appling late Monday was confirmed Tuesday as a minor earthquake, according to Columbia County authorities.

The event, which registered a 2.1 magnitude on the Richter scale, occurred at 9:26 p.m. and was located near Columbia and Appling-Harlem roads, Emergency Services Director Pam Tucker said.

The temblor was not listed on national earthquake monitors, but was confirmed by a seismologist at Savannah River Site, she said.

"This would explain the loud boom and shaking that many residents felt," she said.

Earthquakes occur periodically in the area, which lies along the fall line, where the Coastal Plains and Piedmont regions meet.

Comment: The article mentions that a 2.1 magnitude earthquake produced a 'loud boom' but it was not recorded on the USGS site. Perhaps the 'loud boom' was from a different source?

Strange sounds in the Oregon sky

This is the 3rd morning in a row at roughly 3:00 am. The sound starts with a rumbling in the ground, and then the sound continues for roughly 30 minutes or so. Can not explain where it is coming from, it seems as if it is coming strait from the sky with not a single plane in sight.

If anyone has anymore info. on this sound we are hearing, I would very much appreciate any explanation to what we are experiencing here in Oregon.


"Deep Large and Heavy" Boom Over Ohio Blamed On Jet

Columbus, Ohio - A loud noise heard near Delaware and Marion counties concerned many residents Thursday evening.

10TV News received reports that residents in Hilliard, Galloway, Westerville and Canal Winchester also heard the sound.

According to the Delaware County Sheriff's Office, a low-flying jet broke the sound barrier and created a sonic boom.

Comment: This boom, occurred just six hours after a similar massive boom that shook houses over large swathes of England was heard. That boom was also blamed, by British authorities, on military jets. What are the odds? Given the large number of meteorite sightings in recent years, it is far more likely that these booms were caused by overhead meteorite detonations and the US and British governments are scrambling to cover it up.

Note some of the comment of eyewitnesses left on at the original link of this article:
Right. The Delaware County Sheriff's office would have their finger on the pulse of sonic booms caused by supersonic aircraft.

That did not sound like a jet. It sounded deep,large, and heavy. And with no boom sound, it lasted a long time. Everyone I've talked to heard it, but no one saw anything in the sky.

I don't believe this at all... First of all, they don't keep F-16 at Rickenbacker. Second, if a F-16 was going to take off for Mississippi, it would have taken off on runway 23 (heading southwest). Third, at 10,000, you can see an F-16 easily-even with he light cloud cover. Four, people heard the sound all the way up in Marion; if the jet was turning over Westerville to go south, it shouldn't be heard all the way in Marion

Did You Hear That Boom? Residents Report Saturday Night Sounds that Shook Homes

Michigan, US - Ferndale Police are investigating what might have caused three loud booms and light flashes that shook homes and concerned many local residents Saturday night.

The booms were heard around 9:30-10 p.m. and may have originated near the area of Hilton and Marshall. More than 40 people posted on Ferndale Patch's Facebook page about the incidents - describing flashes of light seen in the sky, their homes vibrating with the noise, and helicopters heard overheard following the sounds.

A Ferndale Police dispatcher said last night at 12:30 a.m. that they investigated the noise but could not find its cause. He said fireworks were a possibility.

Ferndale Police Lt. Casey O'Loughlin said Sunday morning that he was not aware of any reports made but said loud booms can be caused by fireworks.

"That's usually what loud booms turn out to be are fireworks," he said.

In Ferndale, any type of fireworks that explode or leave the ground are illegal, he said.

O'Loughlin said he was not aware of any helicopters being sent out.
