Apparently Yellowstone National Park has had it’s share of strange sounds. I came across an amazing article called “Overhead Sounds in the Vicinity of Yellowstone Lake” from Science Magazine, 1893, by Edwin Linton. To my amazement and shock, witnesses claimed to have heard what may be metallic sky sounds.
This account from Shohone Lake by Professor S.A. Forbes:
That’s one wild description! These historical accounts use amazing descriptive terms that have to be read a few times to imagine what the heck they’re talking about. Are they describing metallic sky noises that we’ve seen in videos?
From an account of Edwin Linton:
What struck me in this description is “It appeared to be a rather indefinite, reverberating sound, characterized by a slight metallic resonance.” Wow! Could there be some truth to all the metallic sound reports happening today?

Yellowstone Park has 1,000 to 3,000 earthquakes each year. They’re small and are rarely felt, but the region is one of the most seismically active in the United States. Could metallic sounds be related to seismic activity?
