I wanted to post in this topic as a New Jersey resident and as, usually, a considerable skeptic of most claimed events on this site.
Well, my wife and I have been hearing bizarre rumbles since this topic's creation in 2011. We live in south, south central NJ and are in a very quiet
neighborhood (away from highways or train tracks).
In several instances, we have heard very
disturbing skyward rumbling/booming with a strangely omnipotent source. In other words, the sound
seemed to come from no particular direction but up. In addition, it was repetitive and variable, in some instances the house would shake and the boom
would wake us from a dead sleep. It also never occurred necessarily at the same time of day. Some days it'd be 4pm, others 2am, yet other times it'd
be 6am. Lasting anywhere from 5min-4-5 hours. Absolutely bizarre. I've never heard something quite like this and am completely baffled as to any
potential theory, anything I could come up with would be but a guess, and not even an educated one.
(I linked originally a website mentioning the local media investigation of these booms in a nearby town, they mentioned how local PD are stumped and
military denied involvement. However, apparently this is not a website ATS welcomes as the "free speech, but...banner came up, so I took this down)
This link mentions the "booms" and that NJ town is a close neighbor to where we live. Interesting to note the lack of military activity at a base that
is some miles away, and certainly not one of the more active in Jersey.
As with most of these sounds, none have been heard prior than 2011. Ever. Now, all of a sudden, they're relatively common, and as mentioned, can
rattle the house/wake you from a dead sleep. It's startling.
The sounds aren't always consistently the same either. Once it was a low droning rumble, the next a loud, short, boom that shook the house (that
continued on changing intervals for hours), other times what sounded like short explosions. Really crazy stuff.
Neighbors are baffled, we're baffled, local PD are baffled, it's just weird. And the sound I've heard is similar to some of the other non "War of the
World trumpeter" fake videos that are around the net, the ones I'd classify as likely real.
No idea what's going on, but my money is on increased solar activity somehow causing the magnetosphere to "quake."
I do have short videos taken with my iphone illustrating two distinct rumbles, I'll post them shortly after I upload them.
