Um, why does the sound have to be "something industrial and human in origin"?

Can't it be something natural in origin other than cicada?

Or, even (heavens forbid!) a cloaked, alien spaceship passing over?

In science, if one does not know what causes something, one has to consider ALL possibilities and eliminate those explanations that do not work.

I'm sincerely convinced that it is definitely not insects. It is still going today. My other family members (which live 15 miles away) hear the same sound also.

I'm sorry, those that are local to central Arkansas don't hear it. The frequency may be out of your dynamic range or you're exposed to too much peripheral noise to isolate the sound. Perhaps it's nothing, but it's apparent, I recorded it and posted it here for all to scrutinize.

Simple answer really and just among friends I will tell all.. Everyone has heard of the Ort cloud and the millions if not billions of snow balls that exist therein. What they have not told everyone due to the fear it might instill total fear in the public of the world is there is another cloud possibly even more dangerous than the Ort. It is named the Fart cloud.

For millions of years the dinosaurs ruled the world and due to their diets they produced allot of gas. We have all heard the great roar of a Simulated T-Rex but through anatomy studies they have determined that was nothing compared to a dinofart. Millions of years the great beast passed gas which had much methane (lighter than air) and as they did all the dinofarts rose to the very upper reaches of the stratosphere..




Now with the normal progress of the sun and earth though this part of space, pressure is greater upon our biosphere than it has been in many thousands of years..

As the dinofarts descend through to the lower atmospheric levels (still above 60 thousand feet) they expand (think thunder only different) and thus we hear their rapid expansion and at times even a residual sound of huge trumpets. OK not so scary but think about this...There are theories that if the planet heats and the atmosphere follows suit that instead of sporadically isolated dinofarts falling the whole dino fartcloud will come crashing down all at once ! If that were to happen it would be like having your head up a brontosaurus butt when he ripped one... No human could survive that...

Others worry about many things in this world but my worst nightmare is a dinofart cloud descending upon mankind. What a stinky way to end everything !

Okay....so you aren't willing to tell us the area where you are hearing it? Those of us who are local and DON'T hear it might be able to help identify what industry, business, activity is going on the in area if you just tell us. You don't have to give your address or anything. A city name or nearby street name would do....

Otherwise I'm just going to brush it off as mass hysteria or something with your ears in particular.

Edited to Add - I'm on the south side of Little Rock today for work purposes and don't hear anything here either. Since reading your post, I've been in northern Faulkner county, southern Van Buren county, and southern White county. Didn't hear anything in those areas either.

Sorry you guys aren't hearing it. Like I said: It may be out of your auditory range..........or too much peripheral interference.

FWIW: My coworkers and I have been discussing it and everyone stated they are hearing it also. One of whom lives 30 miles from my house, and is a physics major type of guy, who has agreed with my observation. Something isn't right!

Lets look at it this way:
You say that it's in the atmosphere? Since you're keeping your exact location a secret (understandable in this day and age...or whatever) have you checked for anything odd in the atmosphere?

*Barometric pressure oddities?
*High altitude wind variances?
*Anything?

Did you check out the surrounding area to check for anything that could be creating the noise?

*Something in the wooded area?
*Something in the neighborhood?
*Anything?

Don't take this the wrong way (which will probably happen), but you're quick to discredit anything that doesn't fit with your pre-conceived notion of what the sound is. If you have an idea of what it is, why don't you tell us not just what it is, but better yet how you came to that conclusion (it could be helpful in figuring out what these type of phenomenon are in the future).

In our area that "weird" sound everyone is reporting is cicadas! Young'uns are freaking out on social media I'm told.
The foundation on the west side of our house was covered in them a few days ago. Until the rain washed them away their shells were on everything. For our area it is a 13 year brood according to the UK Ag site. www2.ca.uky.edu...
Driving through a heavily-wooded wetland last night, it did indeed sound mechanical and very alien.


Please listen to the OP before posting what something is elsewhere or what is "abuzz" on social media (pun intended). There is no resemblance to cicadas whatsoever. Cicada sound is so predictable that you can do Fourier analysis and tell the exact species with no other info. It is not a buzz in any way.

This is something industrial and human in origin. I am convinced that if the OP asks around the locals, they will find that there is some operation like a rock quarry that has been crushing rock for the last week(s), or some other kind of processing that goes in weeks long batches like harvesting a million acres of wheat or some such thing.


I did listen to the OP and it sounds like the 13 year cycle of cicadas in our area. What most people don't understand is that there are thousands, maybe millions of these critters hatching out at one time and they are making their mating calls. Since it happens only every 13 or 17 years, younger folk forget or don't realize the origins of the sound. Here's a clue---the cicadas stop this sound at night and resume when daylight comes.
However, if you can run such tests as you mention, by all means, do so and report your findings back to us.

I'm in PB here in AR and my family and I also hear it! AND I can say it is NOT the Cicadas...

i think im right,,read my post..its a infrasound coupled with gravity waves, the waves add pressure and bring out the sound of air moving

I only said that I was convinced that it is industrial. When I was young, we lived several miles from a quarry. It would operate 24/7 for a few weeks at a time. The whirring of drive belts and some other higher frequency sounds were all that carried over the long distance. It just reminds me very much of that type of sound.

It may be something else, man-made or natural--maybe even some other insect brood, but no reason to jump to cloaked UFO when there are many probable sources. That is quite a leap in logic with no real basis. That's coming from a believer.

Like the person said its probably the auditory range difference. One thing is for sure - The scientific comunity has another assignment on their hands. Need to measure them barometric pressures and all the other ones he listed there. Like he or she said, it will be helpful in the future. I wish nothing but luck to the scientists. Looking forward to reading more on their findings.

I dont know anything about any gravity waves and dont believe its a drill of any sort. I strongly believe its some bird related problem and/or like mentioned insect problem. Maybe at the very least, the most logical explanation would be the drilling afterall. Maybe its the sound from a jet or a helicopter or some other flight technology reaching high speed and producing the sound youre hearing. It cant be a jet because they pass over very fast and the engine is heard only momentarily, and that makes a helicopter or some other sort of flight vehicle the most plausible explanation. Maybe its giant drone or like one of those things the green goblin flies around with in spiderman. These are just posibilities. Without evidence we cant have proof and that makes speculation pointless.

I live in central AR and I hear it. It is really eerie. I was skeptical about the comparison with cicada sounds, but now I'm convinced. Listen to these videos and you can hear the same droning noise as in OP's post.

www.youtube.com...
www.youtube.com...
www.youtube.com...

You can hear the same sound in another post, this one heard in northern Louisiana:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I love a good conspiracy as much as the next guy, but if you can't hear the similarity between OP's video and these, along with the fact that there is CURRENTLY (as in this week) an emerging 13 year brood of cicadas, you don't want to be convinced.

Multiple news outlets have even published articles about police in Bryant, AR (central AR, near Little Rock) being dispatched for this same sound, which was determined to be cicadas:

www.kait8.com...

Believe what you want, it should be gone in another week or two...

Insects? That's funny right there.............The area of Bryant/Benton would need to be completely blanketed with insects for me to hear them over 25 miles away from my location. Too funny!

The sound in my video is not natural. There is no oscillation in the tone as it would be with insects. The sound is constant, non fluctuating and continuous.

BTW! It's still continuing today...............who's got a better theory?

Do you know what's really hilarious? It's on record and fact that 13 and 17 year Cicadas are emerging in late May early June. But you hear a noise and assume it's aliens, God or ( name your doom porn) . Now that's funny!

Sure in Lieu of all actual evidence " it must be aliens".

Uh, you know how cicada broods work, right? Here's a composite map of past broods:
www.cicadamania.com...

This is not an event that is localized to Bryant and/or your particular location. Maybe not right in your back yard, but from a few miles away. These events are massive, encompassing several states and a large geographic portion of the country. And they can be heard from miles away.

And yes, in fact, they have been known to "blanket" the entire ground in areas:
news.nationalgeographic.com...

Billions of insects are known to be emerging and chorusing as we speak. And if you're a distance away from the source, you'll lose that oscillation and be left only with the high, continuous tone that you hear. I know, because I hear it, too. And if I listen really closely, I can hear some oscillation, even in the video you posted. Do you hear how it sounds like two tones at once during part of your recording? That's insect oscillation, filtered through miles of atmosphere.

I was of your mind initially. I dreaded that this was a manifestation of the notorious "humm" that can be heard in various locations around the world. Which is what brought me to this site in the first place. After reading about the cicada cycle and listening to cicada recordings on youtube, I'm confident this is the most likely explanation and it will be gone in a few weeks.

You're welcome to your alien/government conspiracy fantasies, though. Cheers!

Well you deny it is the most obvious explanation so let's hear yours?
