The YT poster says this loud jet sound started at 9 am this morning and as of 2:40 pm the noise was still going on. He describes the roar as sounding like a whole bunch of jet engines. Yet another example of the ubiquitous sky roaring that is happening everywhere. The odd thing about these jet noises is that geographically they don’t seem to have anything in common. There is of course the famous Florida roar. Florida seems to be a place that has its share of strange sounds.
The witness says he called the small local airport to ask if they had a constant stream of jets taking off. The person at the airport said that it wasn’t coming from them and they did not hear it. They told him that they had received many calls asking the same thing. He says that as the day went on the roar became more random, stopping and suddenly starting again over time.
Below is a video of actual jet noise. This sounds nothing like a real jet. The real jet creates a Doppler effect.
Characteristics of the mystery roars tend to be:
- low frequency
- no Doppler effect and not directional
- lasts for many hours
- happens at roughly the same time each day when recurring
- starts and stops suddenly.
These sounds are definitely NOT jets.
Take a look at a similar incident in Colorado from a few days ago.
This sound occurred in Joinville, Brazil. When I heard this I thought that it had to be fake and I am still not sure. It sounds like someone dragging metal on concrete. So I dismissed it as a hoax.
So why am I posting it? Well, a few minutes later I found another “strange sound” video and was SHOCKED that they both had similar sounds.
This one was in Auckland City, New Zealand. This was heard throughout the whole city and they claim it had happened several times before they could get their camera. In the Brazilian one be sure to pay attention to the disturbing sound AFTER the clanging metallic sound.
The scraping metal sounds always occur around high rises. A poster on another Brazilian video had a theory. ”I don’t know but I believe it is an interference pattern formed by two, possibly more resonant frequencies (likely radio frequencies) crossing one another forming harmonic nodes. The two frequencies are slightly out of synch so the ship horn sound fades in and out. The reason it is happening around high-rises is that they act like gigantic tuning forks.”
Hmmmm, the tuning fork theory is certainly an interesting one. Certainly vibrations being caused by “something” might cause metal and concrete to vibrate resulting in these metallic scraping sounds. What do you think?
Strange Sounds in the Sky is now one month old. The blog is a growing library of videos (mostly Youtube) that document sky noises being heard around the world.
I’ve posted many strange sky sound phenomena videos and made a few connections between some of them.
We have categorized different types of sounds including sounds by type and sounds by location. The vast majority are jet-like roaring.
I’m unable to find videos posted in non-english languages. Sometimes these videos are reposted in english and I’m able to locate them.
Something is definitely going on out there. I wonder however if these occurrences have always happened. The information age allows us to share our experiences through various social media. Many of us carry phone cameras with us almost all the time allowing us to captures events as they happen. We can share with the entire world a few minutes later just by uploading to Youtube or other such services.
This one is notable and if it’s true it is significant. The witness described the sound as rumbling or thunder that swooshes across the sky from north to south. I have never heard thunder do that! They also state that in between the rumbling a mechanical humming could be heard. The noise lasted 40 minutes.
Loud roar in Pueblo West, Colorado. This lasted about an hour.
UPDATE 10/27: This post now has 35,000 hits in a few days! Why? It seems no more significant than any of the other sky events.
This one is strange because it sounds sort of like a roar but with other weird sounds mixed in.
This was recorded today and was posted in three parts on her YT channel. This roaring started back in early September and occurs every day. She has been periodically posting videos of this sound. She says that today the sound lasted 6 hours.
Update: I asked her if it was louder now. This is her response: “Yes, very much, every day. Louder and longer and I could hear some screeching or something today that I haven’t heard before.”
Here we go again, this time in
Virginia North Carolina. In the latest videos the sky roaring seems to be getting louder. The poster claims it’s coming from the woods but he doesn’t seem to realize it’s actually coming from the sky. There is nothing behind his house and he claims the closest thing to him is a park that’s 20 acres away. He says it sounds like whirring of a machine of some sort. But it sounds more like exactly what we have been hearing all over the world lately.
I have to admit I get a bit more concerned every time I post this stuff.
Recorded September 25th, 2011 on a lake west of Alexandria, Minnesota.
My take: According to the description this noise lasted 4 minutes and ended with a flash. The sound was accompanied by vibrations that rattled an aluminum boat nearby. You can hear the steady low-frequency rumbling very clearly. It becomes louder before the flash and then seems to diminish slowly after. There is a quick flash focused in one spot within the clouds. This event was also experienced by a person on the other side of the lake. I did a little research on Alexandria. Three weeks Four months prior to this occurrence a rare earthquake struck the same area. I would suspect that the two are related. Could the rumbling be related to seismic activity. Flashes of light are said to sometimes happen before an earthquake.

Captured in Denmark.
My take: This is certainly not a sound that relates to the other strange sounds being heard around the world. It almost seems like groaning. Given that it hasn’t been recorded elsewhere and that it doesn’t really sound like it’s coming from the sky, I would consider this suspect. Still, I think it’s worth cataloging because perhaps we will encounter another video with a similar noise. I will create a new category called “Groaning Sounds”.
Wow. I’ve now found a video of the sound in another part of Denmark recorded around the same day. Viborg is 12 miles from Nivaa Denmark!
These are exactly the kind of connections I’m hoping to discover by cataloging these events.
This confirms the validity of the video above. The sound is farther away but it’s definitely the same noise.
And here it is again except in Northern Norway. The exact location wasn’t given.
