Hey there friend! I thought my first vid "frac pumps throttle up" was exactly like may of the sounds reported in some threads here. It's not 'pipeline' sounds, but water pump and pressure release sounds. If it's not these, then yes, it is strange.
I just got back from a visit to S"Port and my Dad and I heard the sounds and drove around to seek the source. The pumps we found were 20+miles from where we heard them, so the sound travels too. Man were they loud, and the air smelled foul too.
If ya get a chance, try and record the sounds next time, but you are right in the middle of some heavy fracking in NE La.

Wait til it turns up in the [hoax] bin. Talk about a kick in a bum, slap on the wrist and an un-stroke of your ego!

Now I'm curious, what category was this in originally?

I think the lights are way more intriguing than the sound (that I couldn't hear anyway). This belongs in the UFO forum, no? (seeing we don't quite yet have a USN [unidentified strange noise] category)

Well, dang! Shoulda let me know you were coming my way, I woulda fed you some peas and cornbread!!

Seriously, I see that there are plenty of injection wells here in Richland parish, but they are nothing new. These sounds,however, I nevva heard before!

Put this in the UFO forum or Grey area please. Doesn't deserve to be in skunk works.

Now, the end of the world one does.

I really couldn't make out much
on the sound. However the lights
are certainly interesting. I can't
debunk it - anyone else

Hey OldCorp, this guy just posted this with good footage of a definite large triangular ...something?!
DOH! It got moved to other thread HERE It was In Michigan too. Same siting? This was filmed on the 9th.

Could the posters who solely wrote about the 'noise'.....please go back and comment about the lights now too?

I'm not understanding how some of you can gloss right over the cascading light effect and simply hone in on the possible source of the noise. What's the source of the lights????

I mean, don't get me wrong, I (we) do appreciate people offering up opinions but c'mon, how can you totally skip right over the lights???? They are WEIRD. In fact, I don't believe I've ever seen this tagging-like effect before.

Lights please. Please comment on the lights.

If they were 'flares' (like someone posted early on) do you think that was the cause of the noise too? Do you think a plane broke the sound barrier before dropping flares?
Or, were these separate events?

That was awesome, most people get so freaked out they forget to film it or take a picture. The fact that you were relatively silent adds to the credibility as far as I'm concerned, you were obviously seeing something unusual.
The lights seemed to be playing "leap frog" from right to left in the video, is this how you saw it as well?

Great footage. I wonder what the lights are??? They look like stars.

Maybe the sound is a stargate?

Yes, I was mindful of the fact that I was seeing and hearing something unusual; but I was even more mindful of the criticisms I've seen on other videos. I wanted to make sure that there was no sound other than the natural sound unobscured by my voice. I was also concentrating on keeping the camera as steady as possible. I figured it would be fairly well dissected by the ATS crew.

I live in southeastern Michigan and I often hear what sounds like a jet engine at full throttle and very loud. It can last 30 minutes or longer. It's like a jet engine, but different and very odd. It's deeper and fuller than a jet and has a very high pitch whine. It sounds like it's coming from everywhere and there is no way I can pinpoint it's location. This is a very populated area, if they are fracking...where? And why does it seem like everyone around me is oblivious to the noise? The whole thing is odd.

I agree the lights are strange,

I have definitely seen the "tagging" effect before somewhere (good term by the way)

I will try find what ever video I have seen it in,

I say UFO(S)

Me thinks many of them are this

Spot on I would say - not the engines so much as the pressure release. I will try and run a comparison in the next day or two.

Hi there OldCorp. Great catch on the video and sound. I am one that has experienced similar sounds (no lights yet) and posted on some of StealthyKats posts about it. I am in South Central Ohio and have heard noises on and off - mostly in winter strangely enough - for the last couple of years now. I know we are having issues farther up north in Ohio with fracking issues (EQs and noises and poisoned water supplies) but as far as I know not many fracking areas close to me. The sounds from what you caught sound very familiar. The clue there...but definitely have my interest peeked on that. I will keep ears and eyes open too. Coming back into the time of year that the noises were popping up last year. Will keep camera and mic handy just in case.
I really can't say what any of this is yet, but hopefully with more if us being vigilant and putting ideas together we may come up with a good answer someday soon. What I do know's not a standard operational aircraft - ,military or otherwise - that any of us are familiar with.
One thing that does bug me quite a bit with the many other projects humanity starts...we seem to not fully understand or choose to ignore the consequence of what we do to our surroundings when we do things like mining, drilling, damming water tables...etc etc....until it comes back to bite us later. I think we are starting to see that the fracking is something that needs to be stopped. We have already seen and heard the nasty byproduct of this and the damage that is done or capable of being done is way more serious than the little material for energy or money that can be gained....sorry to ramble...just my 4 cents there lol

Anyway...great find and keep us posted on what develops next.

i've heard this rumbling over here once...mid last year. shook my apartment and scared the crap out of my cat!

I have to agree here on that. From what I have heard at a fracking sight I passed and from what info I have researched on would be a longer process than the 10 minutes. As you can see from the vids posted here...the Diesel engines firing up would take longer than the noise itself lasted.
I do realize sound can travel far - especially the lower frq sound waves and can have some mighty strange effects on hills and trees and flats and such....but this one seems way to consistent over a wide range of places to me. I am going to keep an open mind and eyes/ears.
My curiosity is killing me on this one. Good I am not a cat

Consider yourself lucky....this is not something I would wish upon anyone!
You do not want to perceive this noise

Are you familiar with the fissure that opened up in the area? I don't know if there have been reports of unexplained fissures opening in other areas where the sound has been reported. Just thought I'd mention it.

Unexplained Crack Splits UP Backyard

Unexplained Crack Splits UP Backyard
Updated: Wednesday, 06 Oct 2010, 11:11 AM CDT
Published : Tuesday, 05 Oct 2010, 9:36 PM CDT

BIRCH CREEK, Mich. - A Michigan family's property has a sudden unexplained divide.

A large unexplained crack now runs 200 yards through the Salewsky family's property, eight miles north of Menominee in Birch Creek.

The family thinks it happened yesterday around 9:00 in the morning. The ground raised five feet up, taking trees along for the ride.

Some cracks were up two feet wide and five feet deep.

"The house shook, the chairs shook," Doug Salewsky said. "The logs weren't there when I piled them."

Salewsky doesn't know what caused his backyard to split in two and neither do police.

There have been no recent reports of any earthquakes in the area.

People specializing in geological surveying are being called in to try and explain the phenomenon.

The Menominee Crack

On Monday morning, 04 October 2010, a large noise and shaking were observed in a small area north of the town of Menominee, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The following day, a local resident returned to the site of a fallen tree that was being removed for firewood, and observed a large crack in the ground. This feature was reported to local officials, who contacted Michigan Tech, and the news media.

On Sunday, 09 October, Dr Wayne Pennington, Chair of the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences of Michigan Technological University, visited the site (figure 1 and figure 2). The following is a report of observations and tentative conclusions...

Yes, it's about 3 hours away. I have it on my bucket list of show topics.

Congratulations OldCorp! I have no idea what it is but it certainly is one of the more convincing UFO films I've ever seen. Clear, steady, good references to ground and lighting etc and NO CHINESE LANTERNS!
Thanks for sharing.

If I had to make an explanation for it, the only thing I can think of which isn't a good explanation would be some kind of military stuff like chaff or flares...I did say it wasn't a good explanation.
