Hi ATS. I'm a former bronze level contributor, who's been just lurking for so long now I've lost my old account info.
Kinda miss the good talk, discussion, and debate, so here I am again.

As a coming home present, here is a video I took around February 21st-ish, of strange, harmonic like sounds coming from the sky in Chicago. Not exactly what you hear in a lot of the strange sound videos, though it WAS A VERY STRANGE SOUND! Coming from all areas at once and seemingly from the sky.

I compare the noise to the sound you get when rubbing the edge of a wine glass with a wet finger. That's the closest match I can use to describe it, but I took the footage with a HD camera with stereo mics, and you can hear it quite well.

What this does have in common with other videos I've seen is the pulsing, rhythmic nature to the sound, and the gradual tapering off of loudness towards the end.

With all the sounds heard worldwide, and still no real explanations, I invite all discussion and speculation as to what this could be.

Feels good to be back.

Also, note all the birds singing! Sounds you usually do not hear until April. It seems we're about 2 months early with the weather this year. I first noticed strange weather in the area New Years Eve 2011, it was about 70 degrees all night.

A big warm 'Welcome back!'
Nice video. Kinda sounded like you had put your own soundtrack to it!
I wouldn't mind having that sound in the air- seemed very pleasant!

Have you heard it again?

It does sound like a movie soundtrack like when they are trying to create suspense. Sounds a little creepy to me.

No construction around in this video? Being in a big city I was thinking it could be machinery or something on the lake?

Cool video though thanks and welcome back.

I haven't heard the sound since then, but have been on the lookout for sure!

The video is straight out of camera, unedited. I thought about editing my voice out, but decided against it as keeping it raw footage no one can say it's a hoax or something.

The sounds.... were not pleasant. You could feel the sound in your body, and it was pretty scary, and a little bit exciting actually. Having seen youtube videos with the sound since last year, I wondered if they were a hoax myself, because those noises are NOT a good sign. I actually kind of hoped it was a meme or something at first, but now having heard it there is no doubt. I posted this I guess so people will be informed, things won't take them by surprise. Nature is off kilter, and people should know.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

There is an el line (elevated public transit train) close by, but I'm pretty familiar with the sounds it produces. Usually loud, jarring and sporadic noises. This noise had a PULSE to it, something I've noticed in other videos as well.

Definitely not normal.

You can hear the train wheels squeeking at 1:15, under the sound.

Do you need to change the batteries in your smoke alarm? I keep hearing that beep in the background. Also, its odd, I hear that same beep in other videos as well. I was watching a video yesterday and heard that same beep, it always scares my dog.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!

Welcome to ATS, friend!
It seems like that harmonic frequency is a phenomena taking place all over the world since 2011! I wonder what the root cause of it is and what the effects of it could be?
