UPDATE 3/9: Well, after sleeping on this I don’t know what to think. Shall I file all of the “sky dragon” videos as debunked? I’m willing to do this but I plan to keep an eye out for this type of sound anyway. A regular commenter named Panos had this to say which is partly a response to Scientific Method Man (see my post below and read his comments). SMM thinks I need to be careful because I’m perpetuating fear, as conspiracy sites point to my site as proof of the Apocalypse.
From the comments (a response to my post and Scientific Method Man from Panos):
I will dress up like the Scientific Method Man in order to make a point over here on the approach, not to suggest something else.. Wait a minute my friend Jay… you’re not following the scientific method over here
“Apparently palm factories, steel mills and power plants do make the same sound when venting. Who knew.”
That is not correct. You have ONE video of ONE power plant in one place. This doesn’t mean that all plants of different nature use the same valves and make the same sounds.
So your conclusion is wrong and what you practically know is that just one power plant in Slovenia makes this type of sound, not all. Actually not even that. What you know is that someone claims this.
Further more, YT videos are not to be trusted because anyone can fake a video, so we have to make sure that this video is true and it is not a fake produced just for promoting a suggestion.
Do we have more videos? No
Do we have videos of other plants? No
Do we know this guy? No
Why others from other places didn’t report similar findings?
If this is not the first time, why all others say it’s the first time they heard this sound?
Why if the explanation is so simple and obvious, it didn’t come from an official source but from a guy walking in the middle of the night close to a factory?
Even if the video is real, why do we have so many late night steam valves going off lately?
In addition, watching the video and the picture of the plant posted below it, it looks to me that it may not be the same plant. In the pic the chimney has 3 red stripes of equal thickness while in the video has 2, a thicker and a less thick.
The perspective also of the guy approaching the plant is probably from the other direction of that of the photo but still the building don’t quite fit right. Sizes don’t match and I can’t find in the pic the wide lower building with the line of windows presented in the video.
Now again for making things clear. I do not suggest that the video is fake. On the contrary I like that we have such a video because it possibly clears a whole group of strange noises and narrows down the unexplained events.
What i want to point out is that jumping to conclusions goes both ways. And if someone wants to evaluate an event properly he should be skeptic on all explanations, even the logical and comforting ones…
My Comment: If we find more videos of this type of sound I plan to look to see if any factories are nearby, probably futile since the noise is heard widely.
Looks like “sky dragons” are in fact venting valves. Case closed I guess. Link is HERE.
From the comments:
Hello to all of you who can’t seep at night thinking what these strange noises might be.
Well I will try to focus just on this event from Slovenia. Since I am from Slovenia and I infact live in Ljubljana, the city where these sounds were heard and recorded.
Firstly Jay you can set the believeability scale all the way up as I can confirm the sounds recorded are real.
Secondly I must dissapoint you all as these ‘dragon sounds’ as you call them are in fact really nothing more than a pressure relief valve going of at the Ljubljana thermal plant. And yes coincidentally right around midnight. While you’re backing up the believability of this event with twin videos, now you can back it up with tripple videos: http://24ur.com/novice/slovenija/sredi-noci-ropotalo-v-toplarni-moste.html
It’s one of our major news programe website and in the video you can actually see the thermal plant making the noise.
Believe me it’s not the first time the relief valve has gone off (I lived about 1km away from this plant for about 20 years).
All in all Slovenia case closed. Have a good night sleep.
Apparently palm factories, steel mills and power plants do make the same sound when venting. Who knew.
