Strange sounds around the world , most logical explanation

As you may your may not have heard, there has been a recent influx of  “Strange sounds around the world”, “Earth groaning”, and other phrases describing basically similar events which “witnesses” video tape and share.  All are comprised of loud machine-ish, or even trumpet-like,  sounds that seem to permeate an area from above and / or from underground.  An example, and pretty complete list of the more popular videos sprouting up, is found here (and also one of my “suspected” actual viral marketing sties” -

It has come to my attention that “Jay Man”, and his web site, are no longer suspect, at least in my eyes, of being involved with the creation of the “Sounds” hoaxes.  I will leave the following original entry in for continuity and future researchers.  Any reference to this site and it’s admin being involved in the creation or perpetuation of the “phenomena”, I, personally, am convinced the site has nothing to do with the events, other than simply amassing, posting, and critiquing theses videos also.  The registration date, and other things detailed below, mistakenly threw suspicion, but, alas, it just ain’t so.  As we have found after technical examinations of the captures in question, the majority are of such low amateur quality, folks are starting to realize that no big-production-anything could be involved.   The other “coincidence” of the movie “Red State” being released about the time as these videos started showing up is further evidence that it’s all just a bunch of one, or a few, hoaxers that copy-cat-ers sank their felines into, and rode it for all it’s worth. – the domain of which was registered (privately, I might add) 10/4/11, about the same time as this “phenomenon” started spreading.

The more I watched, the more similar I noticed the sounds seemed.  Some where varried, but had the same base machine/trumpeting hollow-earthy reverberating sound.  Which, was very suspect after about a day of “finding” the different videos. But, if they were blatantly faked…the first question that came to mind was…why?  Then…who?

After milling it over, my neural-synapses made a quantum leap and, just like a particular smell reminds you of an exact feeling, one thing popped into mind – the Cloverfield movie heavy viral marketing strategy that preceded the movie itself.  So, putting the two together in a nifty Google search, I found that at least one individual who performed a little CSI on the videos vs. sound contained in them, and came up with an interesting fact: all were faked, most very badly.  Many more individuals have put together the “strange sound” phenomenon and J.J. Abrams’s love of viral marketing, and right now, that appears to coalesce into the reigning theory – Most, if not all, of these videos are probably viral marketing for the yet-unnamed Cloverfield sequel.  In any event, the most popular videos have been proven to contain fake audio overlays…many are just natural sounds (animals, even a cymbal) slowed down with delay or reverberation effects added.

It should also be noted, and highly suspect, that there have been no actual reports to local, state, or federal authorities, nor any direct reports or coverage of these supposedly very public and should-be-heard-by-everyone events.  The only witnesses, it appears, is the videographer(s), and, contrary to what may be stated in some of the videos, no one else has reported, or even seems to react, to the sounds in these videos.

Contrast this to the Phoenix Lights event that happened on one day,  March 13, 1997, and by comparison on scale alone, has been documented several ways, appearing on countless TV shows and specials.  (A show recently debunked the lights as military flares dropped behind, and disappearing behind, the mountain in the background). Yet, with all these “sound events” happening over widespread, very populated areas, and world-wide, I might add, there exists absolutely no additional coverage at all by anyone other than one videographer in each region.  With all the instant recording devices and how they have changed the reporting landscape, it’s very improbable there are not copious, multiple views of the same event being shared all over the net.  Remember the Reno air show tragedy?  An accident that happened in a split second, and there were no less then 7 different angles I’ve seen, and who knows how many just didn’t make the airwaves.


A little more proof of the hoax…listen to the video here at  :48 then at 10:34 then at 111:52 (sound slowed down a little) then at 3:38.  Four different “locations”.  Same sound, even down to the unintentional ”local” sound (bird or kid screeching…actually, I have an idea of what the recoding is, I’ll hold that and see if it pans out) in the foreground, from some of the fore-runner videos of this whole perpetuated junk.



Have a look as the excellent triage a nice reddit user performed on the videos related to these world-side “sound events”:

UPDATE 1/20/2012

Obviously, many people think there is something similar to these videos actually occuring, if we take some of the posters below at face value.

Without evidence, it’s very hard to call one way or the other. There is no way to know, individually, if any are trained observers, misinterpreting natural events, or, even reporting events that actually occur(ed) ( I would think of a natural, yet somewhat rare condition).

With that, I should shout the  obvious out  - if there are non-hoax events happening in reality, we need these documented and reported. Seeing that they tend to last quite a while, it shouldn’t be beyond the scope of reality to have enough time to actually have an authority respond. This would be the first step to having an official “Yes, there is some unexplained noise event occuring”, which, in turn, would interest local and other scientists who are interested in studying, or, if it’s a known phenomenon, have it officially explained. Ok, don’t start with the “swamp gas” remarks. :)

Some futher “corrections in navigation”, the inital thought and research on infomation at the time before this post did heavily lean toward a viral marketing explanation towards a certain movie. I’m less certain about the movie, but it is either intentional, viral marketing, or just a really popular copy-cat hoax that propagated. On the Internet, we all know that’s not impossible. So, remains to be seen.

There still remains a very noticible lack of real news / media attention. Do date, I don’t have any known professionally covered reports. A couple of “buts” have been routinely given as answers to that question, “but”, they are either explained, now, or not what they seem. The most prevelent answer is the very publicly brodcated Tampa Bay Rays Baseball game “howl” on Aug 23, 2011, that has been put fourth as documented, non-hoaxed evidence. This instance has been explained, related to what we had originally though and posted above. The game was posponed 20 minutes due to bad weather, with heavy percipitation, strong wind, and lightning. A bad thunderstorm. That, naturally, lent an explanation..howling wind around and through a large baseball dome. Close, but no cigar there. In reality, it was due to the sound system taking a hit with lightning, which cause some massive feedback through a certain set of speakers, the result sounding very much like a haunting howl. I admit, althogh it sounded much different than the hoax videos, the sound did get my attention. As it should…it was an actual event being captured on audio, with real reactions by those involved.

You can read the story and official expanation here -

The second prevailing defense against my asserting that there have been no real news entities giving attention given to the matter; everyone is giving the link to “Costa Rica News Site”. ( The story “they” ran is here –

The important issue here is, is NOT a News outlet. Far from it. Check their “About” page. This is a site done by an individual that lives in Costa Rica, and originally put the site up to *sell his house*. He gives the story, and he soon started aggregating news that he chose as content. So, it’s an individual with a *zine /  newspaper style page, publishing what they want.  And, he has all rights to do so.  But, it’s a non-match for the criteria we need of an established, credible, news source (if that really even exists anyway) giving attention to the matter, preferably without an X-files backing soundtrack. :o )

One last note, I do not approve any posts that are out-and-out combative,  overly negative, or especially if  vulgarity is used. Go over to LiveLeak if you get off on that junk.  Cussing me out and calling me an idiot will never see the light of day.  Keep in mind, also, the only point of this post is to call out the videos in question as hoaxes (which we and many others have already proven).   So, if, after all the evidence and proof that these particular files are indeed falsified, you still feel compelled to defend them as bona fide, then we are all aware who really deserves that label.  Debate is welcome.  Rude is not.  Go getcha a domain and some WordPress if you feel that strongly about it and exercise your right.  ’Nuff said.

The pheonix lights were seen and reported by thousands so thats crap why would we believe the governments cover ups??? And second the new cloverfield movie has the same machines and they dont sound like that maybe a war of the worlds sequel but not cloverfield lol. I live in Montana and have heard the noise myself it is loud it has sounds you cant hear in any video it doesnt have psh sph psh braaaahnk that I have heard with my own ears faked videos maybe the noise itself is happening!!!!!!!


KWright January 19th, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I think you completely missed the gist of that reference. The Phoenix Lights event was debunked, if you read, and used because it was a small, very localized, short two hour event, yet generated copious police reports and media attention. There are still shows featuring it today; Versus the “sounds” phenomena, which, although purported over very populated areas, and said to lasts for hours, even all day, has generated no local or other official reports to authorities, nor has it been picked up and investigated by any media outlet. That is highly suspect when weeding out truth from fiction. Me, personally believing, or not believing the Phoenix event really is neither here nor there in reference to the article.

If you, indeed, have heard theses sounds, please pick up your phone and report it properly, as to create some official documentation.

Cloverfield was about monsters, not “machines”, so I’m not sure how it’s going to have the “same machines” you are referring to…and as I have read, the sequel is still in the talking stages, so even the producers don’t yet know how the movie will end up. They are still discussing shaky cam vs. traditional. War of the Worlds, yes, the sounds are more similar, but, there is a major flaw there – no sequel planned thus far. This smells of J.J. Abrams, and the site that claims to be accreting the videos is ran by someone calling himself “Jay Man”.

If it walks and quacks like a duck….

Sebastian January 19th, 2012 at 2:00 pm

DEFINITELY something that I have thought about. Initially hearing the first video (I think it was Kiev) days ago, I thought: Is tht not the exact sound of War Of The Worlds?
Checking out Groovy Trouser Emporer’s comments on reddit, I understand his trepadation as I do yours. I would still love to hear his findings (as he has sped up the audio, he can post it for us all to hear).

Thanks for your insight!

@Sebastian – I’ve seen a few posts saying sound with the original posted video (whichever one that may be) was from an indy film “Red State”.

john January 19th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

If you search for strange sound baseball game and strange sound Costa Rica – both of those have main stream media coverage. Most of Costa Rica was outside during that video.

The only “outlet” that carried the story on this domain –
Registered through: Go Daddy
Created on: 11-Aug-10
Expires on: 11-Aug-15
Last Updated on: 17-Jun-11
It was under a writers “opinion” blog, and he was bragging about the runaway success from his two other related stories on the event, so, naturally, he’s doing more.

This is a site ran by one man, after starting it to sell his house, it eventually morphed into his own aggregate site, where is goal is to just fill it up with content. Repeat – not a new agency. It’s one man with a zine/news style template site. See

He even refer to “Costa Rican news outlets”, not including themselves (because they officially are not.) Actual news outlets reported it was a fireworks show. It was also a one-time event, but most of the videos claim the sounds can be heard off and on continually. Searching actual Costa Rican news outlets, there is nothing under actual reported news about the event.

But, I wouldn’t put it past a few local news sources picking up on this and coving it for sensationalism, just like this editor did.
I’ll also call it – we will only see them under opinion sections, not in reported news that they are passing as a credible story. No paper is going to do that unless there is some hard evidence (as in they tape it themselves, or get something from known credible sources).

Other than that, the Baseball game, video, I’m very familiar with, but after scrutinizing it quite a bit, that’s not the same sound, and is genuine. That, as far as I and others looking into this can tell, is a real “unknown” sound, only related because of timing, but ultimately, most probably a wind event due to the size and structure of the dome and the weather that day (thunderstorms, high winds, that delayed the game). I don’t believe it’s related at all, just happens to have good timing and fits, if thrown out with all the other (proven) fake videos :)

This would be supported by events from the actual game (from
The game started after a 20-minute delay because of a weather-related problem with the lights at Tropicana Field. The Rays say thunderstorms in the area affected a power line running into the domed stadium, which caused the problem.

Mike January 19th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Look everyone, here’s the deal…
I live in a very rural area and about a month or 2 ago I heard this sound for myself. I’ve been monitoring the internet for other experiences and after reading this blog post I feel like I need to share my personal story…

It happened at about 1 or 2am. I’m a night owl and I was awake getting some work done when I heard this loud bass noise. Occasionally we will have large aircraft fly over head, or loud monsoon storms that come out of nowhere so at first I thought nothing of it.

The sound continued for about 15min and started to become louder. I swear to god the walls were rattling and it felt like my ear drums were doing the same. That is when it really caught my attention.

I ran outside to see what the hell the deal was…and there was nothing. No aircraft, no storms…nothing. The sound at this point sounded like it was right above my house. It sounded like thunder that just wouldn’t stop rumbling…but yet there were no clouds in sight.

The sound actually woke up an older family member who was sound asleep in the house. She’s a very religious woman and when she came outside and heard the sound she became so frightened she began to immediately pray out loud. She was so scared. THAT is how loud, powerful, and threatening this sound was people!

At this point, I started to get pretty excited and scared. I was excited because I knew I was experiencing something very unusual but yet I also felt very afraid. It lasted for about 30min and then it just stopped. I waited for a couple hours to see if it would come back and it never did.

Now, did I get an audio recording of it? Yes. I recorded a shitty version on my ipod touch but I haven’t uploaded it anywhere because the quality is so bad. However,it is still a form of valid proof and I probably should upload it to youtube or something.

Did I contact the authorities? No. What the hell is the sheriff department going to do about it? They’d probably laugh at me and tell me to go to bed. So I can totally understand why someone else wouldn’t report it either.

Is this a movie marketing ploy? I highly doubt it. Maybe there are SOME fake videos on youtube and maybe that is a movie marketing ploy. However, the real sound is DEFINITELY not a marketing ploy.

The fact of the matter is that SOMETHING really happened to me that night. And I believe that this same thing has been happening to other people all over the world.

So, what the hell is it? I wish I knew. And even if a government organization ever comes out with an explanation is it going to be something you can really believe anyway?

Who knows what this thing is! Maybe its the military testing new cloaked aircraft? Maybe its the earth responding to how badly we’ve been treating it? Maybe it has to do with the earths magnetic field? Maybe it’s aliens? Who the hell knows…

Hopefully we will find the real answers to this very soon. And hopefully the answers behind this aren’t as threatening as the sound of the phenomenon itself.

Peace to all.

- Mike


KWright January 19th, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Thanks Mike. That’s what we need, but we do need to get more proof…if these were isolated events, then no, there is no reason to call the authorities. But, if there were a world-wide event happening, just the *report* would be invaluable, which would provide solid time lines, evidence, and hopefully details. If may feel silly, but if hundreds or thousands called and reported, then real exploration and testing can begin.
That being said, deep down I think you experienced something, but although similar, not what these videos are conveying. The first slew, and actually 90%, have already been picked apart and debunked. I just provided a new update (above) that shows 4 of the very first videos and the time stamps that reveal the exact same sound-then-screech pattern, all acoustically identical in sound editors…hence, the same sound recorded and applied to different videos. Since those were the *first*, every other video is in response to them. It’s highly unlikely that hoaxes were posted, then drew out “real events”. It’s usually the other way around. Real events transpire, then human kind mimics or parodies them.
Keep in mind, I address that only to the videos purported, not YOUR experience. I believe what you experienced is similar on the surface, much in the same way the Baseball video sound is similar, but draws form a very logical and mundane explanation…thunderstorm winds around, through, and over a large dome. Although you seem to have experienced something real, I think the connection to these videos is not at all there. After all, almost all of them have been proven fake by very real science, so that takes it out of the realm of possibly except for the very few that were not disproved.
The real mystery, which intrigues me way more than these fake videos, is what did Mike experience? I would love to see your videos. If you want to send them privately, just email me at the contact info on this site under About TG.
Thanks for the post. I appreciate it.

Leanne January 19th, 2012 at 7:38 pm

I heard something Sunday morning, about 4 am. It was a very low, very DEEP hum is the only word I can think of. I wanted to go look but honestly something about it scared me and I stayed in my bed. I was shocked on Monday to read about this all over the world. Only one really matched what I heard, but that was enough for me. For myself, I’m thinking HAARP.

The Sounds i feel are the Atmosphere magnetic field is rubbing against another Look at the alinement of the planets and the earth is anything off kilt or are any of them in a place they never have been before ?

Joe January 19th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

I call bs on the phoenix lights being debunked… One “show” debunked them as flares? What show? I mean, you are discrediting countless reports and 911 calls, and the testimony of the governor of Arizona… The show was probably funded by some disinformation group…not just were lights reported, but very many reportd a huge black craft silently moving through the sky… But some show “debunked” eyewitness claims… I’ll go with the eyewitness testimony… Flares… What’s next? Weather balloons?

LP January 19th, 2012 at 10:58 pm

This low, mechanical hum has been heard numerous times all over Alberta, Canada the past few days. I know people in Calgary and Edmonton that have heard it. It’s a lot bigger than viral marketing…


KWright January 19th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

You have that right, but this sealed the deal for me, it’s from the exact same show I saw. I’m not discrediting them, I’m saying they made an honest observation mistake based on it being night and making assumptions (that were in-correct). Having been in law enforcement, I’ve seen many people get a big scene flat, dead wrong because they already have a preconceived idea of what they are witnessing (or what they want to believe).

Excerpt from the same show -

I’m into truth, I have to be, as clients depend on my scrutiny and not to BS them. So, no, I don’t like BS either. In this instance, it all makes sense.


KWright January 19th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

Just to be clear, there any many known, natural (or man made) causes for similar sounds. Since most of these particular videos are blatant , obvious, and proven fakes, we are only addressing these videos at face value. They perpetuate, purposefully, the idea that a global phenomenon is occurring. If they were true, this would be…questionable. Add in the fact that these sets of videos are indeed fake, credibility of the whole idea goes down to, well, it would have to be a percentage less than 1.
Viral marking or hoax, they are misleading. We’re just saying, based on research, we *think* we know why. But, we could be dead wrong. It may just be one video that spawned a bunch of copy-cats, and that’s all there is to it. Regardless, many, many people believe them to be true, which is probably harmless, but, there are always those that buy into these things hook, line, and sinker. Who knows..maybe placing doubt may save someone a house, possessions, or even a life or two. We have suicide groups almost every time a comet passes. I can almost guarantee you someone , somewhere, is doing something drastic right this minute as a result of thinking this is all true and evident of “The End”.

If there is such actual phenomena happening, we need people to start documenting and reporting. Other than that, it’s all just hear-say and stories. This is why, in the paranormal business, scientific documentation is key. I could, for instance, see a ghost, full-on, walk through it, talk to it…but unless I capture something in a provable, scientific way, no one will ever believe what I know to be true. Even then, many will still not believe it. More often than not, only those individuals that understand the circumstances and technology, what it can and can’t show, have the “Ah Ha” moment. Those that want to believe, no matter what, will.

SD January 20th, 2012 at 1:32 am

A little more than curious…it’s like when you
Have a dream…that you don’t remember…
Then something occurs that brings the
Memory of it back…I myself recall hearing
Something odd…two weeks ago and two
Weeks prior to that…the first time I heard
The sound I tried to ignore it logically…
But the second time it was overwhelmingly
A bit annoying…so I put on some slippers
And a little sweater and stepped outside
To see what it was I was hearing… It was
About 2am early in the morning and very
Cold out…it seemed to be coming from a
Distance…it sounded like low mechanical was constant & continual… I
Decided to step back in due to the chill in
The air…maybe what everyone seems to
Be reporting is what I heard?I wonder if it
Is a sort of signal that only few can hear…
For what purpose…we shall see! :-)

Fox January 20th, 2012 at 2:16 am

Hi I have recently been looking onto these sounds after my friend told me he heard something weird in the sky last week and I came up with a bunch of theories about this one video on YouTube was posted in 2004 of the sounds of the giant icebergs in antarctica scraping againgst eachother as tetonic plates shift underneath but that’s not all of it if you look this up there are huge news reports onthat day rrportig that there was an earthquaqe at the north pole and the noth pole shifted 40m towards russia that could explain alot of these new sounds but there is no way that this is a marketing scheme

Fox January 20th, 2012 at 2:19 am

Oh I meant to say the north pole shifted on January 10 2012 at about 1 in the morning


KWright January 20th, 2012 at 9:33 am

As I posted before, the sounds addressed by this post, these certain videos are *proven fakes*, this is all we are addressing here. If there are other “sounds”, then evidence is what the world needs. Telling everyone “he heard this”, “my friend experienced that”, doesn’t address these videos, and would be another issue altogether.
As I also stated before, people need capture actual evidence and report to local authorities. Otherwise, it’s arguing for the sake of arguing.

Fox January 20th, 2012 at 9:53 am

I wasn’t saying I believe my friend I’m just saying that there has been proven news reports about the magnetic north pole changing on the day that all these videos statted popping up so if any of this is then that’s probably theost logical explanation


KWright January 20th, 2012 at 11:06 am

I understand. I’m not refuting the pole shift at all, only the videos in question. Pole shift or not (or any other explanation for these videos) is null and void, since they are not genuine. “These videos”, if we are referring to the same lot, are known and proven fakes (see links above), and are just recording overlays on a preexisting video. So, via logic, they can’t be related, since they are actually a fabrication and not a recording of genuinely captured sounds at the locations reported. We have yet to find an authentic recording of the purported “strange sounds around the world” event, excluding the popular Baseball video (which has another natural explanation).

If any, even one, exists somewhere that appears authentic, please bring it to our attention.

lance January 20th, 2012 at 12:50 pm

It is very real. It woke me out of a sound sleep about 3 AM a few months ago . At first I thought someone was running some odd sounding loud machinery, but then realized how eerie it actually sounded. It went on for about 10 minutes and then just stopped. I’m in the Phoenix area.


KWright January 20th, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Has it happened more than once? Any chance of getting a good recording, possibly moving in or around corners or objects to demonstrate audio spatial changes?

jessy January 20th, 2012 at 3:18 pm

A couple days ago my sister who lives about 6 miles from me (middle of nowhere) call me freaking out. She and her son both heard this sound (he is 3) she said it was so loud and scary they both hid under a blanket for five minutes before they dared to look outside. She said she thought she was losing her mind until she realized her son heard it to. I didn’t hear anything but was watching deer across the street from my house. There were maybe 10 or 15. They were running up and down back and forth on a hill. Lasted 20 minutes or so. I have never seen that before. My sister and I talked about logical explanations for quite a whileand finally gave up. I couldn’t beloved it to see other similar stories. I don’t know????


KWright January 20th, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Can you safely divulge where they live, and as exact time of when it occurred as possible?

Jd January 20th, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I live just north of Toronto, Ontario. I have always been a skeptic, in fact, I have a degree in philosophy, I will never admit something that can’t be proven and I know that most people won’t believe that the phenomenon occurred but I can tell you that it did. It happened to me around 8 30 at night in the middle of a winter storm. I don’t have a recording because it happened very quickly and it was so startling I flinched when I first heard it. A couple days after this I saw posts from people in my area who heard it too. After this I googled “strange sounds in Ontario” and stumbled upon the YouTube videos. I didn’t see the videos until a couple days after but when I heard the sound in the video it scared the hell out of me! It happened… I dont know what it was but i refuse to believe conspiracy theory/HAARP/Alien Invasion/Blue Beam, etc….. “Harmonic Tremors”?

Wess January 20th, 2012 at 9:15 pm

In afew vids, I hear birds. They are not taking off. That sound should scare them or the vibrations.

Brandon January 20th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

In response to your Phoenix lights claims. So one show claims to have debunked the sighting and now it’s gospel to you? Many more television shows featuring this event have not only been unable to debunk or reproduce the event in any scale, but also have verified many of the witnesses statements with law enforcement testimony, private pilot testimony, and overwhelming alternative video evidence. There were TWO sightings that night. The one so famously photographed and video taped was the second of the two. Earlier that night there was a sighting of a massive black boomerang shaped object. It was first reported near Las Vegas, and was moving southeast toward Phoenix. Many people reported this UFO first as opposed to the famous string of lights object. As a matter of fact, the Phoenix mayor at the time witnessed this object with some of his staff. And the famous string of lights sighting in my very informed opinion is in no way, shape, or form a string of flares dropped by an Air Force aircraft as some have claimed. Great analysis has been performed on these videos. It has shown some interesting things. The lights do NOT descend in altitude over a period of time, as flares should and do. The type of light emitting from the object is at a different peak frequency and a different type of emission all together then the light coming from a flare. No variation or “sparkle” from the lights as would be noticed from a flare. Also I live in an area that is within an hour of a major Naval Air Station, an Air Guard station and Army Guard station. I see military operations daily. And I have seen these flares in person and compared with the video, there is no way it is the same thing. Flares also don’t burn out then re ignite a couple minutes later and do it in a different sequence then when dropped from an aircraft. I am a pilot and have been around aircraft and observing them my whole life. Now you may be a former law enforcement officer, but that in no way makes you an expert in aerial phenomena or anything aeronautical. This was a mass sighting. Thousands of people saw this thing from many different angles and positions in the valley. There are videos of the lights from a completely different side of town and it shows them HOVERING OVER THE CITY. Not miles away behind the mountain range to the southwest. I have seen those mountains a couple times when I visited Phoenix myself. They were WAY to close to be behind it. Now I am more inclined to believe thousands of witness accounts(including the testimony of some law enforcement and private pilots) , convincing video and seeing the actual event site for myself, than to see one show that would verify my own personal beliefs and ignore so many other factors as you have done in my opinion. Good day sir.


KWright January 20th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

I already explained my position, and why, and this post is not about the Phoenix Lights. I only included my opinion it was solved, but more, actually, for the fact that , although it was of very short duration, it spawned a multitude of official reporting and real video evidence, 911 calls, etc. So much that you, yourself, remember a lot of detail about the event. I’m not a UFO guy, so, I’m not claiming to know it by heart, but, as far as I’m concerned, the evidence on he lights disappearing personally convinced me of at least that portion. It fits. It was done by a scientific 3rd party. If it didn’t convince you, it’s your prerogative to continue to seek answers. You may want to consider including something to back up what you are stating, though (for those that don’t know it by heart, such as me).
The only reason I mentioned it was because of the real public out-pour, that you so kindly listed (thank you). By contrast, these “strange noises” heard all over the world in populous areas, even large cities, with long and even multiple duration, has spawned nothing of the sort. Thank you for inadvertently driving that home to anyone else paying attention. Sorry about the lights. God evening, sir.

First off I’d like to say “Thank God” I will not have to scroll through a bunch of cursing and name calling regarding this topic. I get so annoyed reading garbage people leave as comments so this is refreshing to say the least. I would just like to say that I truly enjoy this sort of topic and I’m not sure why but it’s right up my alley. True or not it still stimulates my curiosity lol. I would like to believe that the strange noises reported by some are for real and not fake. Yes I know there will always be fakes no matter what but I have no fear of what will be will be! Anything has to be better than what awful things we see and hear about this planet of ours! I personally welcome a change and I believe it could only be for the good.

I was sleeping at 2 am when I awoke and heard the noise . I never even heard about the Internet chater On the subject till days later. We live in west Texas.

It’s Gabriel’s Horn. It is prophecized in the bible that Gabriel will blow his horn to signal the end of the world.

These sounds have been heard for many, many years. Unsolved Mysteries even did a story on it in the 90s, which you can find on Youtube as well. That’s a hell of a long time for a “viral marketing campaign”.


KWright January 26th, 2012 at 1:02 am

Aside from all of the videos we’ve put forth being fake, viral marketing or not, they are still proven fakes. We now have the actual samples that came from “War of the Worlds” and “Red State” movies. So, as far as these videos are concerned, without further “evidence” that is actually credible, the issue with which this post deals has now been put to bed.

I know exactly what Unsolved Mysteries episode you are speaking of, I’ve seen it a couple of times. That was a completely different sound, and event, altogether, one which purported ultra-low frequency sound. Also know as the “Taos Hum”, it was nothing you could record with regular sound equipment that could not register frequencies below the human range of hearing.
This was put not fourth as a sound just anyone could hear, it was (said to be) causing disturbances in select people that were sensitive to it. But, again, absolutley nothing like these so-put-fourth “noises from the sky” that are loud trumpeting sounds all of humanty should be able to hear.
Wikipedia entry about the Taos Hum-

It should also be noted there is a sequel to “Red State” planned, and these videos started showing up right about the time that movie was released. The final scene was about…loud trumpets booming from the sky, but…faked by surrounding marijuana farmers that had stolen a fire siren, and were just messing with a religious group.
Hmmmm. That sounds mighty similar… Check it out here – Wikipedia for Red State –

We live in very quiet rural Alberta. I was having morning coffee in the house when both my husband and I heard this strange loud sound, in January. My husband a retired airline pilot, opened the window and neither of us could figure out what was making this strange noise. At first we thought it might be hollow vibrations from large pipes banging as we live around gas wells and pipelines, but it was so unusual, unlike anything we had heard before. It lasted only 15 minutes never to return. When my brother and then a friend sent us video’s we realized that the sound was just like what we’d heard. We then saw our local news cover a story on the strange sounds. My thoughts are there are some fake Youtubes out there, but there are also video’s that I believe are real, like the one of forest workers in Alberta. I never recorded the sounds we heard, but wish we had. The video of the alberta forest workers was close to what we experienced. I also captured a still shot from the forest video and it was clear enough that both my husband and I could see “waves” in the sky in the video. After hearing the sounds myself, a few days later another experience came to me; I looked up and saw, while walking the dogs on our country gravel road with no traffic, cloud waves that had a huge clear blue “hole” in the middle of the clouds. I ran back to the house but the hole was disappearing into wave clouds when I got back outside.
An hour later, I was in town and as I walked across the parking lot, I looked up and saw a strange rainbow light. I know what sun dogs are but this light moved like a ribbon and was in the wrong part of the sky. It was pink and blue with green; changing shape dissolving and then reappearing, only to dissolve again for good.
I believe that the sounds we heard were in the atmosphere and are somehow related to HAARP. Our weather has been far too warm this winter, and IMO global climate change is from HAARP heating up our atmosphere like a microwave.


KWright February 5th, 2012 at 1:23 am

You do realize the Alberta forest video is a validated fake? If this is the noise you are hearing, it’s awful suspect that it’s actually noise ripped directly from War of the Worlds 2005 remake, as are dozens of the other “sounds” videos. This was originally posted on the Kiev video, which was, in reality, someone blasting the sound from stereo speakers out the window, while recording out of the same window. On the recording, the ambien environmental noises (birds, children playing) are captured. These same, exact ambient noises are in the Alberta and many other videos. If you loop them and play them side by side, they are the exact same audio file, if you play them in sync, they match up perfectly, 100%. If you sync them, and split them off left and right, you get perfect stereo recording.

Doesn’t it strike anyone unusual that they are deep in the forest in heavy winter conditions, yet there are the sounds of children playing and birds chirping in the background? I didn’t see any kids in the Alberta video, yet, there they are on the recording. That particular hoaxer didn’t put much gain on the recorded overlay, presumably to try and cover up the ambient noise from the ripped audio, because they were too lazy to try and remove it, or, just find or produce some other similar sound. But alas, they are still there.

HAARP, there is no evidence that it’s the malevolent “earthquake causing”, “magnetic pole flipping” conspiracy that seems so popular. Those “conspiracies” actually came from it’s portrayal in Marvel Comics, Tom Clancy’s “Breaking Point” novel, and of all things, an X-files episode, so, the conspiracists in this instance aren’t even original. I’ve read the psudo-physics purported to be at work in these conspiracies, and as a physics major, I can tell you for certain resonance just doesn’t work that way.

Here is a great video (made by someone else that had some time to do so) of the “strange sounds” videos and the proof of how fake they are. Namely, laying the sounds side-by-side to expose them as complete and total rips of the original Kiev, of which he also has a much longer version showing residents walking around, non-responsive, until they get close enough to the windows to hear his speakers.

Nana February 28th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Normally I would believe you. However, last night at 2:00AM I heard the sounds myself. The dogs of our street were barking like crazy and people came out of their homes and talk to each other. It lasted for 19 minutes. I live in the Balkans (Europe)


KWright March 11th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

NANA, if you happen to experience this again, please try to record the phenomenon. I’d love to hear. Thanks for taking the time to write.

sarah March 23rd, 2012 at 2:26 am

i have heard noises but dismissed them as being some sort of army planes going over my house in kent, uk, just the engines sounded strange but i just thought specialist army planes and helicoptors going over. (was only out for a couple of mins) it was one evening after rain and we had dark low clouds, so i couldnt see anything in the sky. forgot about it, then someone online mentioned it and thats when i found these and similar noises had been heard around the world. shame some have to spoil the truth with virals! im now keeping my ears open and will record these sounds if i hear them again! but yes i definitely 100% heard these noises!!

Aaron October 7th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Factors…… Let’s go with the assumption that the events are real, what is one move someone would do to seal the truth? Obviously one of those is to create fakes to make us guess. To keep us in the grasp of the ones in the higher power. Humans seem to recreate what happened a while ago; we believe we have a government where the power is shared and no one has absolute power. Anyways we are still pawns in their hands no matter what we try to believe. Again, the factors that can happen are endless and unpredictable and some one doesn’t want us to know what it really is. Like wise the people who created the fake videos could be posting on this to keep the story alive. The people who post might even be in the government… Goodbye and heed these words

Aaron October 7th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

People can make fakes to keep us guessing, Humans repeat history, we are all held down by a higher power no matter what we try to do, the people posting could be posting to keep us guessing, the higher power could be posting and I am sure they know what we are doing, options are always open. Factors…. Goodbye

I’ve been investigating this topic for the last few weeks, and it’s worth mentioning that in my investigations I always allow my intuition to guide me, but I refer to logic and reason when discerning conclusions.

I personally do not believe I have heard these sounds myself (though I’m definitely keeping my ears open now!), but upon hearing about this phenomenon I intuitively felt it was important and was worth investigating, even though I had seen a few videos that you have listed above as “proven fakes”.

I don’t have much to add in the weigh of genuine evidence, but I thought I’d share some of my intuitions, maybe they’ll help guide others to a conclusion that suits them.

My first reaction to hearing the videos was the connection to the “War of the Worlds” sound, I had seen the movie before it came out in theatres (not important really, but again, this is intuitive so I pay close attention to synchronicities), which I felt was kind of special (almost as if the “universal intelligence” was trying to show me something important, as if to say, “Pay close attention now.”).

So to that concept I bring up the notion of COINTELPRO, and how perhaps (you’ve got your grain of salt with you, right?) that these sounds are legitimate, but the “powers that be”, knew of their forthcoming – and so prepared the population by using a sound incredibly similar in the movie, (if not an actual recording of this sound?) so that COINTELPRO agents in the future, when the sounds would actually begin to be heard around the world, would have “ammo” for their campaign.

Another intuition I can share is the idea that perhaps only certain individuals are “tuned in”, and so they are more sensitive to these vibrations and can hear them, where as others can not. Now I don’t mean to suggest in any way that only “more evolved” people can “get it”, please take it that way. In my mind, it would be more of a matter of genetics than any spiritual or religious dogma.

Now logically, the first intuition makes sense if you believe in COINTELPRO campaigns and that even though many conspiracy theories are just examples of vivid imagination and attempts to garner traffic flow to a certain website, that there remains a thread of truth to many of them. If this thread were to hold up, I think my intuition actually makes a good deal of sense. Chicken or the egg? Don’t get too caught up with that, just let the information flow into your mind and see where it resonates; this is, after all, just an intuition.

To the second one, logic doesn’t hold up very well to this, mainly because if there is some astronomical or geological explanation for these sounds, then any body on earth, from plants, minerals, to animals, would certainly be able to feel it. However, I do understand a subtle yet profound facet to the nature of reality – that perception plays an incredibly significant role in our experience of it. In other words, if people are looking for a sound like this, it’s not at all unlikely that they could perceive one, when its source is otherwise scientifically explainable. On the other hand, if you were looking to discredit this concept all together (whether your intentions are pure or not) you might be standing in a crowd of folks who are hearing the sound and still deny that you hear it, and so to you, you may not at all!

My current stance on this issue is that the sounds are real, but that many of the videos surfacing are not.

P.S. I have noticed that in some of the video recordings of these sounds, the sound is mostly similar, but in a few, the sound does appear to be heard at a different frequency. My hypothesis at the moment is that these sounds are probably a result of a combination of increasing energy fluctuations from our sun, and the core of our planet.

SwiftWater November 8th, 2012 at 9:46 am

P.S.S I own a very high definition video recorder, bought it just the other day actually – and I’m carrying it everywhere with me. Mostly because I want to capture a UFO (not necessarily of alien origin, just unknown and flying and probably an object), but now I’ll also be looking to record this sound if I happen to encounter it. The audio recorder is also of quite a high quality, so I hope to be an asset in this investigation, though I will probably not post the video to this website – I may email you a copy if I do.

I live in anchorage alaska, and I never knew about these sounds until I started hearing them a few weeks ago, I didn’t look into it on the Internet until a couple hours ago this girl on my fb shared a YouTube video that this guy in anchorage alaska recorded and posted. It was called ” weird noises coming from the sky in anchorage alaska” so I listened to it and BAM. It was the exact same noises I heard. Then I started researching about it online and watched a few videos, noticed that recordings of this strange noise was louder in other states. I hear these noises every other night, well actually not night, it’s always between 1:00am and 3:am. And whats interesting is that my older brother does the news paper route, starts the route between midnight and 2am. And in alaska it gets dark here during winter, to me the sound sounds like trumpets/machine. And it will get louder and then quiet and then louder and quiet again. I never read or heard about this sound being heard around the world until a few hours ago when I looked it up, showed my brother the videos and he said that he hears the same noises. It sounds like trumpets and outta wack instruments. It’s creepy. So yeah the noise is also being heard in anchorage alaska so you all know. It’s either the government, aliens, or god lol but I’m hoping its just aliens and not god cuz I am not ready for judgement day, I’m too much of a lesbian to face it lol
