drunkcops, are you exactly in DC or in the outlying DC metro area? I'm in Montgomery Co MD. I didn't hear anything last night but we are doing some work on our house and would not have heard much of anything the past week, except during breaks.

Yes! When I heard it last night, I was around many people but hardly any of them reacted to it. Just me and a couple others had a puzzled look on our face and we looked around and that was it.

I just wanted to let you all know that I think I have figured out what the sound (that I heard) is. With some help from TXTriker.
I live close to one of these compressors, but it is usually very quiet. Sometimes I can hear it at night and it sounds like a semi truck in the distance. It is possible that I heard an emergency venting or malfunction. Try to ignore the chatty lady. I really think this is it! When the sound in the vid is at it's loudest, it sounds just like what I heard.

I don't know what this sound is, still going on and it's loud and long. I stopped the tape because, I was freezing. Could be military.

Here is the recording I caught yesterday afternoon. Sorry, my crappy camera is OLD and picks up the sounds closest to it! Try not to let the woodpecker scare the crap out of you!
It was not as loud as it has been on occasion, but was loud enough to be heard inside the house.
