Mostly I dismiss stuff like this but there has been so much talk about these sounds I watched the video.
I am STUNNED and even shaking a bit!
THAT SOUND...EXACTLY! I heard it between 1:45AM and 2AM this morning!
I am at work at a group of radio station in Pittsburgh. No one else is in the building. When I heard the sound my first thought was that someone had stopped in and might be moving a piece of furniture. It was so noticeable I left my studio to see who was here. There was no one to be found.
Next I thought it might be thunder but it didn't sound like thunder, it was the same sound as in some of the ones in the video.
It did not last long, maybe 2-4 seconds and there weren't harmonic overtones.
Next I thought it might be a garbage truck or some other vehicle in our industrial park. Since I'm on the 3d floor with a great view I can see just about everything here but there was nothing. Everything is quiet as usual.
The only other possibility is that it was something on a web cast I had on a computer in the background while I work. Revision 3's Tekzilla was running a wrap up from CES. When I get home I'll watch it again and see if the sound is on there. I highly doubt it though. Not only did I hear the sound I FELT it as well so the chance of it coming from the speakers is pretty slim. The volume was WAY down.
In a couple of hours I'll be speaking with one of the local weather forecasters and I'll ask him if there was the possibility of thunder overnight. The problem is it didn't really sound like thunder.
One thing is sure. I have all the lights on now and they will stay on for the rest of the night.
Oh...I think I heard it again just now! Not as loud...two or three short low frequency bursts. I checked the other studios to see if anything on the air there could cause it and no way. None of the music playing had that sort of sound.
I'm also going to check t he HVAC. Sometimes it can act up and make unusual sounds but they never sound like this did.
It's going to be a long night!
VERY interesting and please keep me posted.
Sorry I did not mean to freak you out. Just trying to figure this thing out that’s all.
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 mean, did they all hear something first, and then go grab their cameras? Seriously, nobody just sits outside with a video camera pointed at the sky, waiting for a noise, unless it is engineered to happen or is anticipated. There is no context from the tape from what I can tell, nor affadavits that I can tell, local police reports and the like. I could be wrong, but this world is full of weird noises and it has been that way for hundreds of thousands of years. Our universe is one continuous wave of perceptible noises, including those from astrophysical bodies, and the like.
Interesting. About 7-8 years ago I would stop by Sat eve or so at the office to put in a few hours. It was a modern building in an urban area that had been built up pretty nice.
But it had this metal roof with very little insulation inside. That building would make noises and freak me out all the time. All the jobs I worked, including a multiple-story building built around the 1900’s never made any sounds like that. I never did figure it out but since I was behind card-access doors (probably like you) I just turned up my stereo that I kept at my desk.
Will definitely be interested in further experiences you may have.
The reason I’m even on FR this early is that a sound very like this one just woke me up. Live north of Dallas (TX).
And yes, it is not a “feel good” sound. Sorta freaked, too.
The sounds are back. It happened again two days ago in Amarillo, Texas.
Here is one theory about it.
