I don't know if this is in the wrong forum, so if it is, mods please move it.
I live about 25 miles south of Denver in a decently populated area. I heard or witnessed something very strange today and am looking for other
Coloradans who may have heard it as well. Trying to get a sense if this was a localized sound or more spread-out. Thanks in advance for any
As my subject line says, I was witness to a strange, very eerie sound today in Colorado. It was at approximately 2:15 or so this afternoon, but I
could be slightly off because I was in my bath tub and did not have a clock in there. My tub is a corner tub with a window on the wall behind it,
which is why I believe I heard this so clearly, as it was most definitely coming from outside. I had music on and I thought that the track that was
playing had a weird sound that started before and continued through and after a breakdown, until I realized that it was off beat and came in and out
all wrong. It started softly but got louder and louder, so as I started to hear it more clearly, I had my husband turn off the music to see if
that's all it was. It wasn't. The sound continued for about another 15 seconds and that's the only part of it he heard. He was across the
bedroom and had the speaker too close to his ear to hear anything else until he turned it off.
The sound was trumpet-like, but too low-pitched at times. When the pitch was low, it was almost like a fog horn or the sound you'd hear on a great
big ship or vessel. It went up and down in pitch but did not repeat the same notes, some held out longer than others, but it was all one "song".
However, it would fade to nothing and then get loud again a few seconds later. At times, the tone was so low it was like I stopped hearing it, but my
ears and head could still feel the tone, almost vibratory, if that makes sense. In all, it lasted for maybe 1 1/2-2 minutes. It actually lasted a
little longer than that, but that was only from the sensation I was picking up in my ears and not actually hearing. Five minutes later, my dog
started barking wildly downstairs, but no one was outside of the house. I can't say for sure if it was the sound that was bothering her, but if the
low tone bothered me so badly, I'd wonder if it wasn't that that made her so upset.
There is a set of train tracks less than a 1/4 mile from my home and I do not live near a busy road or highway. When I first started hearing the
sound, my first instinct was to peek out the window to look for a train, but none were around. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary at all.
While I was very curious earlier, it was when my daughter mentioned the sound to me this evening that it creeped me out, because neither my husband
nor I mentioned a word of it to her or anyone else. My daughter's school is 2/3 of a mile from my home and she heard it when she was outside at
recess. My son, a kindergartner, is also at the same school, but he was inside at the time and did not hear it.
Again, looking to see if any other people in my area heard this sound at all. Last year I heard so much of these "sky booms" and hums, trumpet
sounds, but it's been a while since I heard anything on this site or anywhere else. I never heard these sounds before, though I did hear big banging
booms just before and during the series of quakes we had here last year. Nothing since.
