According to an article at SalemNews.com, titled Magnetic Polar Shifts Causing Massive Global Superstorms by Terrence Aym, we are in for some nasty weather changes. The idea is that earth’s northern magnetic pole is shifting rapidly with the result being superstorms. I think we can all agree that after last year’s disastrous storms and earthquakes something is definitely wrong. In my opinion these magnetic field changes make sense given how the disasters are earth as well as weather related. From the article:
The Earth’s northern magnetic pole was moving towards Russia at a rate of about five miles annually. That progression to the East had been happening for decades. Suddenly, in the past decade the rate sped up. Now the magnetic pole is shifting East at a rate of 40 miles annually, an increase of 800 percent. And it continues to accelerate. Recently, as the magnetic field fluctuates, NASA has discovered “cracks” in it. This is worrisome as it significantly affects the ionosphere, troposphere wind patterns, and atmospheric moisture. All three things have an effect on the weather.
What caught my eye was that the shifts can affect the ionosphere, troposphere wind patterns, and atmospheric moisture. The troposphere is the one closest to earth at about 10 kilometers. Next is the stratosphere. Each can change in height according to the temperature. The atmosphere is comprised of many layers including the ionosphere up to the exosphere at 700 kilometers. Jet streams move in the stratosphere at around 100 miles per hour. Suppose there is some sort of disruption between the layers being caused by the magnetic shift. Would this cause the loud sky roaring that we’ve recorded many times on this blog. We’ve determined in this post here, that these sounds have occurred in the past. There have been so many videos posted I’m convinced they’re accelerating in frequency. I’m not a scientist but perhaps if you’re an expert on the atmosphere you can expand or dispute my theory.
Insert 1/20: Response to Sharon Hill at Doubtful News. Response on this post here. It’s going to make some people mad.
Sky roars aren’t sexy like metallic sounds but they’re the real deal. No one noticed these videos below because we were all too amazed by the plethora of fakes.
First up we have one from Badajoz, Spain on Jan 18th, 2012. The witness says there was no storm or thunder. Just a hum from the sky. It’s a classic sky roar. What makes this one significant is that the roars are always described as being constant, but stopping and starting suddenly, and this is the best example I have of that happening. The poster has a suspicious description and tags, but I am pretty sure it’s real. After all, he didn’t make a Kiev fake did he? Sky roars aren’t sexy. MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
Below is some information and updates that don’t mention Kiev beyond this sentence.
MYSTERY SKY BOOM IN INDIANA, USA. UPDATE: AND BRAZIL ON THE SAME DAY
Residents of Allen County, Indiana were all shook up by a loud boom sound on January 17th at 3pm. They claim it’s not the first time but this incident was much more disturbing. See this post about recent sky booms here. Read the news article here. Hat tip: sheilaaliens.
Update: Apparently a sky boom occurred on the same day in Brazil as in Indiana. Interesting. Thank you Phillip, Equipe and Ricardo for the tip. From the comments: In Brazil it was reported a case of explosive sound in a leading newspaper in the country. the noise happened at dawn, followed by earthquake, and alarmed the inhabitants of the city of Taubate, in the state of Sao Paulo.—Ricardo.
I don’t speak Portuguese so I don’t know what they’re saying in this video but if any of you readers from Brazil would care to translate and elaborate it would be appreciated. Otherwise, an odd coincidence. Thank you Valter for translating! Translation here.
COSTA RICA REPEAT?
An in-house columnist at a Costa Rican news site claims to have recorded and heard a repeat of the January 9th sky sound event. He says that on Jan 13th, at 11:59pm, the sound was heard again. In my earlier post I pointed out that a Colorado sound event seems to have been dubbed over a moon clip in a local news report. See the post here. This below video sounds nothing like the Colorado incident. I know fireworks when I hear them and this sounds like fireworks! Why just present an audio clip?
A VERY GOOD ANALYSIS
Sharon Hill over at Doubtful News brings us an essay on the strange sound phenomenon. Excellent and rational theories with sources. She says:
Despite the obvious hoaxes, people don’t seem to be critical. Public and conspiratorial-minded interest is growing. So, I decided to consult some definitive sources on the subject of anomalous sky noises and see if these sorts of phenomena or anything resembling them had previously been observed.

MORE JUICY TIDBITS AFTER THE JUMP…
THESE BAFFLING SOUNDS MAKE NO SENSE
I’ve decided to rewrite this post due to new videos of the incident that have surfaced so you may have seen an earlier version. We have two different witness accounts and one news story that doesn’t line up with the two. One of the two sound videos can’t be easily described and the other one is similar to the Kiev sound. In a post below this one I attempted to debunk the Kiev video. I will comment on each video in an order that make sense to me.
Supposedly the sound was heard within a 150 mile radius. The sound was heard from Perez Zeledon to San Carlos at 12:30am. Costa Rican authorities claim there was no seismic activity at that time. Below is a news clip about the event. I don’t speak Spanish but the sound they present in the news video doesn’t sound like the the two videos I will outline below. According to a news article people apparently heard different things depending on where they were located. They either heard rumbles, vibrations or hums.
The news video above shows rapid percussive booms very much like the sound recorded in Colorado in August before the east coast earthquake. According to one witness on Facebook the booms occurred 50 to 100 times in 10 minutes. Below is the video from Colorado. Compare it to the sound in the news clip (the one they show with the moon). Message boards are all a flurry with discussions about this incident. If you read the comments in articles or videos many Costa Ricans are claiming to have heard it. The Colorado video is here. UPDATE: As a commenter on this blog points out, if you listen carefully the news example is EXACTLY the same sound as Colorado, right down to the gravel. Something is very fishy here. Was the local news fooled? Is this a cleverly produced mass fake with planted video/news comments? Did someone submit the dubbed video they presented? Is the media there perpetuating a hoax for ratings? Why was the follow up news explaining it away with fireworks? Why would someone be shooting off high powered fireworks at 12am on a Monday? Is the local news an accomplice? This whole sky noise event is now suspect.
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?
Recorded in Chile.
My take: This sounds very much like the metallic sounds in Russia and Brazil. I am very skeptical of these metallic sounds because they remind me of the sounds in War of the Worlds. Because they are being posted so frequently now, I am beginning to change my mind.
Below is another video from Chile on September 4th. This is very odd because the metallic sounds AND the roaring sounds are happening in the same location.
According to the poster this sound happened on August 28th as well.
The location is Belloto, Honduras.
My take: Yet another sky roar in South America.
I have been digging deeper into youtube and look what I found. The exact same sound as heard in the US!
