Here is the link for the "sound" video from Tallahassee, FL. www.youtube.com...
Here is my own report:
Thursday, March 17
I have been hearing "roaring/booming" lasting about 5 - 10 minutes off and on for about a week. This night, however, my 13 year-old son was swinging
a bat outside and called me out to listen to what he called "tones/notes" in the air (yes, my immediate thought was "Close Encounters" but he
hasn't even seen the film).
Now, he is an advanced choral student and can recognize the difference between just "sound" and "tones/notes". I could NOT hear what he was
hearing but did hear a distinct, mechanical-type roar, very similar to the sound in the Florida video for which I provided the link at the top of this
post. The primary difference between what I heard and THAT video was that I felt the noise did have a somewhat "mechanical" sound to it.
On the other hand, my son was getting frustrated because I was hearing only this and NOT what he was hearing. In fact, while he is not prone to
exaggeration or dramatics, he was getting quite agitated about that. He was also very adamant he was hearing long "notes" clearly ABOVE the roar
and really, that the "roar" wasn't loud to him at all (while IT was clear and loud to me).
We do live near a military base and I hadn't yet heard about the other "mysterious noises" across the U.S. so I really came to assume this was the
military was working on some sound technology at a high frequency. The reason I say that is the whole scenario with my son hearing tones I couldn't,
reminded me of us playing around on one of the ring-tone sites that lets you sample-play the ringtones kids can hear but adults can't. We
experimented with that for a good half-hour one night and I was amazed at the frequencies he could hear that I couldn't. Anyway, that was my thought
with this because I knew he wasn't making up what he was hearing yet I just couldn't hear anything above besides that roar.
I did also experience RAPID (as in - "are my eyes playing tricks on me rapid") flashes of light while we stood outside listening. The sounds went
on for at least 15 - 20 minutes before we got bored with it. (Again, we didn't know about the other reports at this time so we were just assuming it
was "military" and it lost its novelty after a bit.)
The skies were pretty much clear and there were no visible aircraft.
P.S. I would be very interested in knowing whether any other of the reporters of this phenomenon also had their children with them and if so, did the
children hear the noise the same way or were there any others that heard more notes/tones than roar/rumble? If so, that would indicate the sound WAS
at ultra-high frequency level...
