New Sott Report: Strange Noises in the Sky: Trumpets of the Apocalypse?

From as far back as 2008, video recordings of strange and disturbing noises that seem to come from the sky have been appearing on the internet. In the last 12 months, many more of these 'strange noise' videos have been recorded and uploaded by people from many different parts of the globe.

The precise origin and meaning of this phenomenon is, as yet, unknown. Are we dealing with a cosmic version of the 'bell tolling' for life on planet earth, or is there a more mundane explanation?

The Sott Report investigates.

Strange Sounds in Sky Explained by Scientists

Mr. Khalilov, what is the nature of the unusual very low-pitched sounds reported by a great number of people in different parts of the planet since the summer of 2011? Many call them "The Sound of the Apocalypse". Information about that comes from all over the world: US, UK, Costa Rica, Russia, Czech Republic, Australia, etc.

We have analyzed records of these sounds and found that most of their spectrum lies within the infrasound range, i.e. is not audible to humans. What people hear is only a small fraction of the actual power of these sounds. They are low-frequency acoustic emissions in the range between 20 and 100 Hz modulated by ultra-low infrasonic waves from 0.1 to 15 Hz. In geophysics, they are called acoustic-gravity waves; they are formed in the upper atmosphere, at the atmosphere-ionosphere boundary in particular. There can be quite a lot of causes why those waves are generated: earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, storms, tsunamis, etc. However, the scale of the observed humming sound in terms of both the area covered and its power far exceeds those that can be generated by the above-mentioned phenomena.

Costa Rica: National Broadcaster Covers Mysterious Booming Noise Over San José


Comment: As the following night-time TV report from Costa Rica points out, these weird atmospheric sounds have got people talking and networking through social media. If at least some of these sounds are real (as this one clearly seems to be, provided we accept for a moment that Costa Rican mainstream media are not conspiring to sell a hoax on their viewers), then it stands to reason that vested interests in maintaining the status quo will be doing all they can to ensure that people remain confused as to what these sounds really portend. Controlled 2012 apocalyptic fever is being deliberately propagated to distract us from the fact that something wicked this way comes.

Strange Noises: Are they UFOs, thunder, HAARP or a hoax?

The online community have been spooked by a series of videos uploaded to YouTube and other video sharing websites which appear to show loud noises rumbling apparently from beneath the ground.

People from a wide ranges of cities and countries have uploaded videos.

While some appear to be relatively obvious hoaxes, others remain unexplained and ideas as to what the noises might be range from the mundane to the arguably ridiculous.

Some people on social networking sites, online forums and video sharing sites have suggested the strange noises might be the work of HAARP or High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. HAARP is a US-based research project that studies the ionosphere - a part of the Earth's upper atmosphere - and it has regularly been the subject of conspiracy theorists' discussions.

'Strange sounds' heard Worldwide


Something strange is afoot --- unknown sounds heard globally over the past few days.. basically starting up in rapid pace on January 11, 2012 --- up until today (Jan 16 2012). I don't know how long this will continue, or what it is.

Mystery Booming Noise Leaves Residents and Houses Reeling in Costa Rica

Authorities say the boom was not a volcanic eruption or a supersonic aircraft.

Monday morning started off with a bang for residents of the Central Valley when a loud, as yet unidentified, series of booms rattled windows about 30 minutes after midnight. Many did not hear it, but enough people did to cause a firestorm of comment on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

The strange sound was prolonged - many described it as lasting for five minutes or so. Perhaps the only one making no comments were scientists and government authorities, who were reticent about commenting or speculating. A few things it wasn't: Volcanologists discounted a volcanic eruption; nor was it a supersonic aircraft, because the powerful radar at Juan Santamaría International Airport outside of San José picked up no planes at the time, not even subsonic ones.

Also, there were no climatological phenomena or strange weather conditions. By nightfall Monday, the speculation was still going along briskly with the major vote going to fireworks at the festival at Zapote, in San José. But many said it sounded like no fireworks they had ever heard. Mario Sánchez, spokesman for the National Meteorological Institute, discounted a storm because the only thing that would sound like the noise described would be a storm accompanied by lightning - and early Monday morning was clear with a full moon.

Mysterious shakes in one Dauphin County neighborhood last week have been confirmed earthquakes.

A professor of earth science at Millersville University, Charles Scharnberger, tells CBS 21 News there were four earthquakes in Swatara Township.

He says they all happened in a small area only about a mile across. He also compared them to the earthquakes that have been felt in Dillsburg.
