Okay me too...yet again another sound woke me up too early today. Yesterday it was a knocking at my door and today there was some noise at my window. SOunded like a heavy wind pushing against it...kinda like what we heard at the window while hiding in the basement when we had a funnel cloud go over our house about 6 years ago. Only today there’s no wind...queue up twilight zone music...
He wasn’t making strange sounds, was he?
It has begun!
Well, I’ll tell you one thing for sure. The clip labeled “Montreal, second week in January” is NOT. All the trees had healthy green leaves and the grass was a lovely green.
It was not frogs. LOL
When I went outside, it did not sound like anything I had heard or felt before. It was bigger than the really loud man made stuff we just ignore in life.
After I could not dismiss it as a very loud train (because I am not near any trains), I told myself at the time that it seemed to be coming from the heavens...but I have no clue what it was, really. It did not seem to me at the time to be coming from the earth. Others around here heard it as well. My husband heard it at work and told himself it was a really loud ship (he never hears ships at work! LOL).
I played one of the videos again and my Cockatiel got distressed to the point I would have to take her to a different room (if it went on any longer).
Funny you should say that. My dog reacted the same way. Don’t know what I think about it.
More like anti-venom...
Sara - these two Freepers have heard it too.
2nd Div and dForest, you might compare notes with Sara. Also, note the comments about the dogs reactions to the noise.
It’s Helen Thomas doin’ the one cheek sneak.
This reminds me of the time travel hoax on YouTube:
Chaplins Time Traveler
One of the search hits (not here, but on my TV hookup) had a fun vlogger entry where the smarty-pants pointed out that, if someone in the 1920s even *had* a cell phone, they’d have to be talking to no one, because there was no infrastructure. :’)
This “noise all over the Earth” has the stench of the tabloid story that spread around years ago, that a Russian oil or gas well that went deep into the Earth had a microphone lowered into it for some fake reason, and that the howls of people suffering in Hell were recorded.
There are still complete effin’ idiots who believe that one.
Per the YouTube video link, why is everyone all poised and in place and ready out there with their video cameras to record a noise?
I heard this massive sound in Texas about six months ago. I was at home and was not carrying my phone in my pocket.
Great post on the Rays game sound. Thanks.
About 10 years ago I had a spooky experience, which later turned out to be probably just an aircraft passing overhead.
I was out walking with the wife when we heard the sound of air collapsing above us and traveling from horizon to horizon. We were walking along a golf course with ravines and tall pine trees, about 2 miles from the International Airport, so I expected to see a jet aircraft pass overhead.
But nothing passed and the sounds began to lapse, then returned getting louder. They continued for about 2 minutes, and no aircraft in sight as we mounted a hill and surveyed the horizons. Additionally, at the hour it occurred, the airport was closed for approaches/departures.
Since that time I have heard the sounds again, but with aircraft being visible. I surmise it was an aircraft, but I know it was incredibly spooky thinking it was an aircraft, when no aircraft could be found for its cause.
By listening to the youtube video, I wouldn’t be surprised if some sounds were modulations of Osprey flyovers as they transition from hover to flight mode.
Another thought I had regarding the sounds would be to query if they were perceptible by out or inner ear. Some ultrasonic speaker systems are inaudible except for specific ranges in specific frequencies, and in some cases are not perceivable in outer ear transmission, but only resonate just inside the inner ear. If somebody were tuning a weapon system to target mass audiences from afar, the sounds might be perceived as replayed to bracket their targets.
I think the sound was and inner and outter ear experience. I felt and heard it. Sometimes I think it was a groan of the earth and sometimes I think it was blasts of sound from the sky. I just never heard anything like it before. The ground did not move.
Isn't Poland a bit far away for that idea?
Folks in Poland are too independent for anyone to get them all to shift together.
I remember laughing at both those hoaxes.
...and that’s why it’s no fun punking whippersnappers any more: too easy!
I had a couple of younger gals at the pool believing that my gall bladder scar was a WWII Samari sword wound that I got sneaking into Japan from a submarine in Tokyo harbor, to rescue some American POWS. By the time “we escaped” with the rescued GIs, we had had to torpedo a Japanese destroyer to get out to sea...and, then.... The worse the story got, the more they ate it up.
What kind of hurt was that I wasn’t even born then.
lol That WAS a pretty good story!
If you thought the young folks were stupid/gullible back then, they HAVE to be even WORSE now, given some of the crap I’ve seen out of them.(to numerous to list here)
If I can think of any exceptional stories, I’ll post back. lol
Answer to some sounds: alpenhorn! :^}
Was another one in Chile at a soccer game. Can’t find a link. Sigh.
BTW, thanks FRiend.
Ever since the incident I've kept a mike open and recording in one of my production studios. It's very sensitive and even records my footsteps in the hall but so far nothing.
Meanwhile here is the response I got from Demetrius Ivory who does a our weather.
Did you see bright lights also? Lol
I checked the radar at that hour and it was all snow. That means that you may have heard thunder snow. If so it was elevated because it didn't show on lightning indicators.
There is one indicator that there may have been enough lift to create lightning.... Show showers were just developing at that hour. That means that the highest motion or energy was in the area at that time.
I did like the response about from another FReeper who heard it around the same time I did. He seemed to think it might have been a (just) subsonic B1B.
The only problem I have with that is that when the traffic copter hovers near our building the noise is coming from above while what I heard seemed to be in my building or coming originating from below me.
I'll keep the recording going and if I hear it again I'll keep you posted!
Thanks for the update!
The sounds are back. It happened again two days ago in Amarillo, Texas.
Here is one theory about it.
Maybe you should take a trip on over to the observatory and see what you can find out. Do you know where the marine biologist were stationed out of because maybe you can talk to them to. Certainly might be interesting.
