Update Insert 4/3/12: Here is another video recording from the same time by a different person. It’s strange but is it explainable?
The above video, posted on a popular conspiracy site, has the theorists in a tizzy. All sorts of fantastical explanations are being thrown around with my favorite being, “a test for a loudspeaker for Project Blue Beam”.
For those of you who don’t know, Project Blue Beam is the belief that NASA will create a big “space show” with three-dimensional holographic laser projections in the sky. The projections will be of a speaking multi-lingual Anti-Christ. I would imagine you need some bad-ass audiophile speakers for this.
This long titled video called, “Strange Sounds in the sky over Clearfield, Utah March 16th 2013 (03-16-13)” features a new kind of “strange sound”.
The witness says that just before noon, after a trip from the bank, he heard this odd sound and grabbed his cell phone just in time! It gave him a headache but he isn’t sure it’s related. Until now he thought the sky sounds were a crock but now he is a true believer. He posts a plea for anyone else who might have heard it to message him immediately.
Why is this a big deal? I have no idea but some people think it is. Last night the Academy Awards was plagued by some sort of strange digital feedback that increased as the show progressed. The noise went on for two hours and for some reason they couldn’t fix it. I guess we expect one of the most important and watched shows in the US to have a working sound systems.
My favorite theory espoused by conspiracy sites is that it’s some sort of mind control. This is hysterical in more ways than one. Did it work? Anyone out there feeling different today after having watched it?
I can’t embed this so you have to go to the site and wait for commercials. Once you have patiently watched the ad, forward the video to the 1:45 mark. Listen carefully and you can hear it. It sounds sort of like digital blips. Link is here or click image. (Insert: Some of you say you can’t watch it for some reason. Here is the address to type in: http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/2012-oscars-highlights/58tkuby So far it’s the only site I can find that has the Oscars highlights. You may have restrictions in your country.)

Okay, you must be wondering why I’m talking about this because it’s clearly just a malfunction in the sound equipment. Well maybe you’ve seen the below video from Tropicana Field in Florida from last August. It too freaked out the internet because the sound was so strange. It was blamed on lightning striking the audio equipment. Of course many people don’t believe this.
Think about how weird it is that we live in a time when malfunctioning audio equipment freaks people out. Why is this? Why are we so distrustful nowadays? Can you imagine even ten years ago people being so freaked out by such things. What has changed? Is it millennial angst?
MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
UPDATE 1/6: Another incident of mysterious radio frequency interference in Missouri. This time garage door remotes are affected on one street. From The Intel Hub here. Follow the link to St. Louis Post-Dispatch article.
Three strikes and it becomes really intriguing. Over the past few months there have been unexplained radio frequencies causing disruptions in the UK and Colorado. Once again a village in the UK is experiencing radio frequency interference. The villagers of Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire discovered their village green, a triangular park, was a dead zone for the operation of remote control car locks. According to an article in the Daily Mail (here) the location is close to Army barracks implying the cause is of military origin. However, barracks are military housing, so perhaps it’s a coincidence.
From the article:
A spokesperson for the Army, which operates Waterbeach Barracks, said: ‘We are not aware of anything happening at Waterbeach that would have caused anything remotely like that.’
Experts and scientists using sophisticated equipment determined the source was an ultra-high frequency radio band. According to the article the military uses such signals. The weird thing about this is that it seems to be within a defined area. It affects only the triangular park in the village. The signal was registered at the southern end of the park yet not pinpointed.
Once again the excuse is possibly a faulty TV or fridge. Seems to me any company making such appliances needs to examine why their product can knock out remote control devices in a huge area. I’m not buying this appliance excuse. I’ve never heard of this before until recently. I have a feeling it’s maybe some sort of military experiment. The signal has since magically disappeared.

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.
If you’re truly interested in sky events this post is for you. Hit the link for the article Sounds from the sky: Reflections on historical observations and recent events.
MORE JUICY TIDBITS AFTER THE JUMP…
The video below was just posted to YT. The event occurred in Dawson Creek,
Alberta British Columbia, ten hours longitudinally from Conklin, Alberta. (see map). The witness seeks an explanation and claims it sounds like a low trumpet or giant low harp. You have to turn up the volume to hear this one but it sounds very distant in the video. The sound is very creepy. He is filming from his bedroom window which means it could be a recording in his bedroom. If he was going to fake it however, he probably wouldn’t mention this. Hard to say but it does sound atmospheric. I thought at first it was a car being revved, but listening carefully I don’t think it is. An alarm? Maybe but an alarm tends to be a repeating noise. Probably not fake but it could be anything. On YT he files under “News and Politics” with poor search tags. Start listening at 0:24 on the video.
This video below from Beaver Lodge, Alberta is just one of many that have been posted to SuperSamgordon’s YT channel since back in October. I’ve been following her videos and she seems very frustrated by what she hears. The sound happens a few hours at a time. She has tried repeatedly to figure it out and has several theories. You have to listen carefully and initially I thought this was just a sky roar but it actually sounds like something else, very faint. All connected? Not sure. Some fake and some not? Can’t say. Interesting to say the least. Watch out for fakers. I already found a video this morning that plays the exact Conklin sound dubbed over a video.
A mystery signal appears to be jamming remotes for garage doors in a tiny community in Colorado. It’s unknown what is causing this but some speculate it’s military communication equipment. Small objects can jam signals but not over a half mile radius. More info here.
It is believed that HAARP can jam communication frequencies. For what HAARP is please see this post for more info. I doubt this is the case but it’s food for thought.
A RANT: I can’t understand why pea-brained, wink, wink newscasters have to make light of anything that can’t be explained. I suppose it’s fear of the unexplained or fear of being on the side of people that believe things aren’t always explainable. The purpose of the media seems to be about instilling fear in people on a daily basis, then offering them reassurances that they should be trusted to provide the answers. Just like the below post about mystery sky booms where they will latch on to any lame explanation just to prove they have the answers. We can’t go through life believing everything we’re told and not thinking critically. If we blindly believe that everything we’re told is true, then we will believe that jumping off a cliff won’t hurt us.
Hat tip: Celestial Convergence
We hear what sounds like a roar with hissing, except the hissing sounds almost like inhaling and exhaling. Almost. If you listen to the roar carefully it might not be a roar at all. It’s sounds kind of like vibrating metal, sort of like tin cans being dragged over concrete. As far as the hissing goes, your guess is as good as mine.
Overall this one is not very convincing.
Believability Scale: | | | | | | | | | |
plus: person has no related post on YT, you can hear the sound when the video starts
minus: located in a city where sounds could be anything, no real description
The poster of this video claims this noise has been occurring in the morning, three days in a row. He claims it’s not construction, railroad work, or radio. I will add that it doesn’t sound like gun shots either. He has been unable to find the source.
It’s very interesting to me that when I find videos that seem not to be related to the strange sound phenomenon, a few days later a similar sound video in a different location has been posted. Clearly people find the sounds strange enough to take the time to record them. If you look at posts on this blog you will notice that they often have twin recordings around the same time. Sometimes nearby and sometimes not.
The twin to the above video is below. It happened on a Sunday morning but he had heard it before and it was louder the day it was recorded. I doubt anyone would be doing construction on a Sunday morning.
What does this mean? I have no idea. It is maddening that overall the sounds are so varied that I’m finding it impossible to make connections. Of course the roaring ones that I haven’t found lately are all similar.
I will note that while these two poster have Nibiru and strange sound videos favorited on their youtube channels, I think they are genuine. I am starting to think that perhaps the people that have an interest in weird things are just paying more attention.
Believability Scale: | | | | | | | | | |
plus: sounds genuine, they have no related posts on YT, unscripted commentary, both happened around the same time in the mornings.
minus: one is located in a city where sounds could be anything and the other is not, both have interest in weird, unexplainable subjects that have been favorited on their YT channel.
First off, I would like to state that in no way does the dissection of this video lessen my belief that the other videos in this blog have a strong case for being credible. If you have been reading this blog you already know that I present these found videos with a cautionary tone as to their credibility. I try to pick them apart and never claim that they are real. All of the videos need to be viewed through a skeptical lense.
Some are obviously hoaxes and it’s a shame that some people feel the need to muddy the waters in our pursuit of the truth. They appear to be motivated by the need to increase their hits on YT in order to earn ad income OR they simply think we are all idiots and like the idea that they can sucker us into believing them.
