Item 1: Clintonville Boom Recording?
There isn’t much going on in terms of truly amazing strange sound videos but I do have some interesting tidbits to share. The first is an alleged Clintonville recording posted by an audio engineer who spent time there with the intent of capturing the sound. He claims to have met with the city officials who assisted him in his pursuit. Not everyone is buying his account. I would say with national attention he would be pretty ballsy to hoax this. Given no one with real credentials has been able to record this, I’m skeptical. Here is his explanation.
Here is the supposed recording. He explains his analysis thoroughly.
Item 2: Magnet Makes a “Strange Sound”?
Scientist have created a magnetic field 2 million times stronger than the Earth’s or 100 Tesla. It’s a tool for studying various materials. The sound is heard at 1:37 as they energize the magnet. The magnet vibrates with the electrical currents causing an audible noise.
Going to make a leap here and go back to this video from last month. Notice how this has a similar electrical magnetic sound. The post is here.
A reader Panos had this to say at the time I posted this:
The more we hear these sounds the more i get the feeling that they are the result of some electrostatic discharge. And the fact that they are quite different from one another also points to that direction.
i.e. if the discharge is in the clouds then you get the “sky roar”, if it is in the woods then you get a hissing sound and cracks, if it is from an urban/industrial area or from metallic structures you get more metallic sounds like this one..
I have no idea if there is a connection or even how it relates. The sound is similar though. Thanks for the tip Ines!
MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
Item 3: Intense Thunder?
Once again we have witness accounts of intense thunder described as not sounding like thunder. I did a little post about an incident that was recorded in Woodbury, Minnesota a few weeks ago. The explosive sound brought many people who experienced it to this site searching for explanations. They found this video below.
Now we have an article from Pennsylvania titled That Noise Was not Thunder, Pocono Residents Say here. There were thunderstorms happening at the time but the actual noise is described as a sonic boom. As with the Minnesota event there was a huge flash of light. However, in the Minnesota incident the skies were clear.
There was lots of shaking and it was so intense it actually knocked things off of one person’s countertops. I’ve never heard of thunder so strong it moves objects over surfaces. People were sure it was an earthquake. It was so extreme it actually shook someone’s car while driving.
From the article:
Russo Albuja of Tobyhanna said, “I was driving along 196 on my way home from work when I felt the BOOM. It was so extreme, my car shook and on my left hand side on an empty field – all I saw was this HUGE flash of light coming from where the airport location would be at. Afterwards, I heard nothing. Kinda scared me that I rushed home and locked my doors.”
All this happened over an hour, along a large area at around 10 to 11pm. However, I found this posted to a Philadelphia message board with a thread called Strange noise in the Sky from the same date here.
Did anyone else hear it? Happened from about 2:40am til 3am this morning. Very loud. Sounded like a jet engine hovering over the area. Constant for about 20 min. It was starting to drizzle when it started. Just before the thunder it stopped suddenly. BF walked down the block to see what it was but couldnt tell the location and it was too cloudy to see the sky. But he said it sounded like it definitely was coming from the sky. Really creepy..
I heard it. I was loud like the wind of a hurricane only no wind. I was thinking maybe it was some kind of big gas leak from the gas company but it was strange. I would have went out to look but with the weather i figured what could i see anyway if it was a UFO. Strange as loud as it was there was no reporting on it.
It would seem they heard a “sky roar” (see here). This was heard only a few hours after the explosive sound. I want to say the jet noise sounds are related to weather but as in this video below from Las Vagas there is no bad weather.
Filmed in Las Vegas on March 24th, it lasted 30 minutes. Other people commented on this video saying:
I was in Las Vegas on 3/23/2012 and heard a series of loud booms in the middle of the day
Okay, this is weird. Have you heard any LARGE booming noises? That come with shaking or rumbling? The booming noises and rattling has been going on for several weeks now… I live in Southern Highlands area….
That is EXACTLY the date that several of them were heard!! I called Metro, as well as Nellis, and Nellis claims it was NOT them. Metro has NO clue what they are. And they also said there were dozens of reports on strange booming sounds. Nellis said they were doing Red Flag exercises but not during that time. The booms happened again today at 5:07 pm. First time I have ever heard them during the evening hours.
Now we are starting to see a combination of “constant jet sounds” and “booms” in the same areas around the same times.
Item 4: Strange Sound or Crazy Lady?
Just kidding. A woman in Bradford UK has had to leave her home of 15 years because of a constant droning that started last September. She recently moved to her mother’s house because the noise was driving her “insane”.
This has been investigated by officials many times and it can’t be detected. She says anyone visiting will feel “pressure in their ears”. Since she doesn’t hear the noise when she leaves the house there may be something to it. The article is here.
Item 5: Does Jay Man believe in God?
Yesterday I read on a message board that some think I’m an atheist because I refuse to associate these sounds with “end times”. They said I needed to be prayed for. I chuckled at this because I do believe in God or rather I like the idea. My faith involves this combination:
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth;
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process in society at large;
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning is having deep questions and dedicating yourself to pursuing new answers without fear.
