"Whatever these things are, these noises are as strange as they are spooky."
Some have read recently of strange and unexplained noises coming from the sky. Or is it the ground? Nobody seems to really know, as they seem to be coming from everywhere. And they are similar yet different. They can either sound like "booms" or they can sound like giant nails scrapping across a giant blackboard.
A couple of weeks ago, the "booms" were heard from Florida up to South Carolina. Many thought they were unauthorized sonic booms left by supersonic military jets. The military denied it, as they have iron clad rules against supersonic flight over the homeland. Then last week up in Oregon, the "nails on the chalkboard" sound started again. And nobody has a clue to what is causing it.
I have updated the following which took from a post I did over two years ago on the same subject:
Years ago, my wife's cousin lived in Taos, New Mexico. When she came home, I could not wait to ask the question everyone who lives in Taos get asked - what is the world is up with the "hum"? She had not heard it - not everyone does. However, she did know of people who could hear it. Some hear it so loud, it interrupts their sleep. There were other places on the globe which a similar hum could be heard.
Strange and unexplained noises have been around since the 1800's - maybe even earlier. It is reported that Lewis and Clark heard them while on their travels. The theories of what causes them go all over the map. Interference due to "Planet X", to UFOs, underground bases, to Gabriel's Trumpet, announcing the beginning of the end.
Here is what as article from Interesting Thing of the Day had to say about these noises in July of 2007:
Today’s interesting thing is a phenomenon consisting of similarly mysterious booming noises, but without such a ready explanation. The most generic term I could find for such sounds is mistpouffers (spelled “mistpoeffers” in Belgium and the Netherlands). In various areas they go by such diverse terms as “Guns of the Seneca” (near Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake in New York), “Barisal guns” (in Bangladesh), “uminari” (in Japan), “fog guns,” “lake guns,” and many others. In all these instances, the terms describe a sound or series of sounds that resemble loud but distant cannon fire, usually heard near the edge of a large body of water. The sounds occur when there are no storms in the vicinity that could produce thunder and no other obvious source. Sometimes they’re accompanied by a rumble that can be felt strongly enough to shake plates and hanging pictures; other times no vibration is felt.
In fact, one country reported a series of these sounds so loud, windows were broken and chickens died.
Whatever these things are, these noises are as strange as they are spooky. If you want to hear them, there are many posts on YouTube that have captured excellent recordings of them. Whatever they are, they are real enough to be witnessed by thousands and picked up by recording instruments. As for me, I am going in my basement and hide until someone figures out what these things really are.
