Wow - I meant to get back earlier to post this, and look how many pages it is now! So - I didn't go through the rest of the pages; and if someone
else has already posted this - then I am truly sorry. But look how great minds think alike!
A friend of mine sent me a link to a website by a guy who's been blogging about these strange noises since last fall. Here's the link:
He's attempting to sift through all of the videos and try and sort out what he believes to be real, and what is fake. Which is awesome of him
because I'd love to do the same thing if I had the time.
But the thing that most caught my eye was a piece he wrote called "Roaring in the Sky is Not a New Phenomenon: 1851 and 1864", and he credits a
youtube user for calling his attention to it.
It has quotes from The Yearbook of Facts, published in 1851 and The British Meteorological Society, 1864.
People have been hearing these unexplained noises since back then, and trying to figure out what they were - just like we're doing today. Just one
example is about a man named Alex Herschel, Esq., who sent a report to the British Meteorological Society that stated:
"In August of 1864 around 9pm, he witnessed the moon clearly with stormy clouds here and there. He could hear the wind roaring in the trees but was
struck by the fact that the air was calm. He walked toward the roaring sound, apparently directional, to a clearing."
He then goes on to describe it as the “noise of spinning mills”. He also mentions rain, lightning and witness accounts of lunar rainbows.
But that's not all - there were three other witness accounts of the same phenomenon - and they described the noise as a “heavy luggage train”,
and a "roar" which lasted from 30 minutes, to an hour.
If you take the time to read through, you will see the similarities between these stories, and the sounds people are hearing today.
So what I'm saying is - that this is a real phenomenon. I'm off to check on the history of weather patterns and earthquakes for those two years and
see what's what - in case it is a phenomenon related to nature. If there doesn't seem to be one, I'm also going to see what was going on in those
years in particular - in case the noise is related to beings coming around and checking on us from time to time.
So my best guesses are that these noises are an atmospheric phenomenon we just didn't know about before, or we may have cloaked, creepy sounding ufos
hovering over us. I have to admit - the latter was my first instinct - and after reading that its been going on since the 1850's (and who knows how
far back it goes), it's is definitely not some new thing someone just created.
