Well, I think the words "Trumpets of God", say it all. Another "end of the world" hoax ... people going about, claiming "GOD" is coming, and kill us all ... and only the people of "zion" will survive. The entire rest of the world will die ... that leaves 144 thousand people left on the planet, and about 7 billion dead.
yeah ... right.

What you are hearing is the solar wind coming through holes in the magnetosphere. In space there is no sound. But the solar wind is an oscillating pulse of energy particles. As it hits a hole it pushes the hole wider and as the wave of energy gets softer it closes. This energy hitting atmosphere is then converted to sound and as the holes in the magnetosphere open and close the sound is made. Its really very simple and nothing to be afraid of. But The noise places are harsh x-ray and gamma. The speed of the solar wind or errant CME pulses regulate the sound volume on any given time and the size of the holes in the magnetosphere give it the wide range of sound and pitch.
At least this is my theory. one would have to measure x-rays and gamma in the area vs one with no sound to prove it. Could be tested by someone who lives close to the sounds very easily.
Think of it like this. If you play the trumpet you are using energy to expand and collapse your lungs thereby causing energy to be turn to atmosphere. As you blow the trumpet the energy on the finger slides can start hard or wane depending on your choice of note. (The way the solar wind pushes the hole open.)
I believe this is the only logical explanation with any degree of testable nature. I think its the scientifically plausible and responsible answer for a disturbing natural happening.

And here just in, hot off the internet press is the newest UAS from Spain:
Fricken creepy. And this sounds like a different kind yet still. Maybe if it is some kind of problem with planetary space sounds getting through the changing atmosphere (hole in the ozone layer, etc.), and being reflected off the Earth's surface- and the different landscapes in all these different places would cause vast alterations of the reflections, and could change what we hear in each place dramatically. And that appears to be happening to a degree. Each place seems to add its own sonic footprint to what is heard, and that would be expected, if indeed the theory holds true.
But how weird!
And another from Venice, Florida, 1/16/12:

Audio files are created by converting the raw 10 Hz sampled waveform (Bx channel) to a WAV file at 44.1 kHz, resulting in a playback speedup of 4410 times. This means 24 hours of data plays back in about 20 seconds and signals near 1 Hz (normally inaudible) are played back at 4.4 kHz. The large 1.7 MB WAV file is compressed into a 150 kB mp3 file using the lame encoder. The Adobe Flash plugin is required for playback.
We're actually working on an idea right now… The key obviously at doing any kind of sequel, certainly this film included, is that it better not be a business decision. If you're going to do something, it should be because you're really inspired to do it. It doesn't really have to mean anything, doesn't mean it will work, but it means we did it because we cared, not because we thought we could get the bucks. We have an idea that we thought was pretty cool that we're playing with, which means there will be something that's connected to Cloverfield, but I hope it happens sooner than later because the idea is pretty sweet."
While we were on set making the film we talked about the possibilities and directions of how a sequel can go. The fun of this movie was that it might not have been the only movie being made that night, there might be another movie! In today's day and age of people filming their lives on their camera phones and Handycams, uploading it to YouTube... That was kind of exciting thinking about that."
"There's a moment on the Brooklyn Bridge, and there was a guy filming something on the side of the bridge, and Hud sees him filming and he turns over and he sees the ship that's been capsized and sees the headless Statue of Liberty, and then he turns back and this guy's briefly filming him. In my mind that was two movies intersecting for a brief moment, and I thought there was something interesting in the idea that this incident happened and there are so many different points of view, and there are several different movies at least happening that evening and we just saw one piece of another."

Hey all, my buddies and I heard the sound too maybe 5 months ago in southeast massachusetts. It lasted probably 45 minutes and at first sounded like a tornado, which i heard sounds like a train coming, so i ran outside to make sure that wasn't the case.
Then if i had to describe it, i'd say it sounded like wind, with metal in it, if that makes sense. Occasional extra loud metallic bangs would occur. There was bright flashes in the sky.
I was only an ats lurker at the time so no videos, but does that description match anyone else's?
Also, peoples facebook status' from all over my decent size town were saying what is this banging noise?!

I'm leaning towards viral campaign here. Any new movies to be released which would follow this theme?
