The sound waves aren’t coming from the meteor itself, atmospheric scientists Michael Kelley of Cornell University and Colin Price of Tel Aviv University propose April 16 in Geophysical Research Letters. As the leading edge of the falling space rock vaporizes, it becomes electrically charged. The charged head produces an electric field, which yields an electric current that blasts radio waves toward the ground. As a type of electromagnetic radiation, radio waves travel at the speed of light and can interact with metal objects near the ground, generating a whistling sound that people can hear.

What possible explanation for this happening.
Perhaps CERN sucked Argentus out of his brain and theres an extradimensional doppelganger in there suddenly, just as Argenstus was about to paste in his writing.
Where our socks go in the dryer?
