Have you ever heard this rumbling/roaring sound that feels like it comes from the sky (kind of like three large jumbo jets flying side by side, jets
roaring in unison)? (This thread *may* be talking about those sounds -
Rumbling noise being heard around the world
I heard it again this morning! It was much louder and much more sustained - my accommodation is full of double-glazed windows, so it was clearly
exceptionally loud. (I'm up North in the UK).
Now, I thought that enough is enough, as it was past 9am in the morning. So I thought that I'd either complain to my local council and bring a
complaint....against the UK government, or research what it is. Well, I resolved to do both. First I telephone the police (on their non-emergency
hotline) - they didn't have a clue. Then I telephoned my local council - they too didn't have a clue!
So, I went online and this is what I found:
Mysterious Sounds Around The World
We have analyzed records of these sounds and found that most of their spectrum lies within the infrasound range, i.e. is not audible to humans.
What people hear is only a small fraction of the actual power of these sounds. They are low-frequency acoustic emissions in the range between 20 and
100 Hz modulated by ultra-low infrasonic waves from 0.1 to 15 Hz. In geophysics, they are called acoustic-gravity waves; they are formed in the
upper atmosphere, at the atmosphere-ionosphere boundary in particular. There can be quite a lot of causes why those waves are generated: earthquakes,
volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, storms, tsunamis, etc. However, the scale of the observed humming sound in terms of both the area covered and its
power far exceeds those that can be generated by the above-mentioned phenomena.
In that case, what could be causing this humming in the sky?
In our opinion, the source of such powerful and immense manifestation of acoustic-gravity waves must be very large-scale energy processes.
These processes include powerful solar flares and huge energy flows generated by them, rushing towards Earth's surface and destabilizing the
magnetosphere, ionosphere and upper atmosphere. Thus, the effects of powerful solar flares: the impact of shock waves in the solar wind, streams of
corpuscles and bursts of electromagnetic radiation are the main causes of generation of acoustic-gravitation waves following increased solar activity.
Given the surge in solar activity as manifested itself in the higher number and energy of solar flares since mid-2011, we can assume that there is
a high probability of impact of the substantial increase in solar activity on the generation of the unusual humming coming from the sky.
It should be pointed out that solar activity began to rise sharply since early 2011, with its amplitude significantly higher than all forecasts given
by a number of influential scientific institutions in 2010 and 2011. Meanwhile, the observed increase in solar activity is fully consistent with the
forecast of the International Committee GEOCHANGE published in the Committee's Report in June 2010. If this growth rate of solar activity continues,
its amplitude by the end of 2012 will be higher than the amplitude of 23rd solar cycle, and in 2013-2014 the solar activity will reach its peak the
amplitude of which was predicted by us to be 1.5 - 1.7 times higher than the amplitude of the 23rd cycle.
But you said that the cause of the "sky hum" can lie within Earth's core as well, what does it mean?
It then goes on - you can view the whole story in the link above.
Now, the next few quotes come from a fairly mainstream news website and although it's the Daily Mail, they do talk to actual experts:
What's causing the
mysterious sounds coming from the sky that are so loud they set off car alarms?
Mysterious sounds have been heard booming from the sky all around the world – in some cases they were so loud they set off car alarms.
The unsettling noises were heard recently from Europe to Canada, sounding like groans and powerful horns.
In Germany noises coming from the sky were recorded on a video camera and uploaded to YouTube, with car alarms clearly heard going off in the
The internet has been buzzing with theories about what the sounds could be, with suggestions such as Jesus returning and the world ending put
But experts have said that there are rational explanations.
University of Saskatchewan physics professor Jean-Pierre St. Maurice told CTV that it’s electromagnetic noise emitted from auroras and radiation
Geoscientist David Deming from the University of Oklahoma, meanwhile, has previously written about a phenomenon called The Hum – ‘a mysterious and
untraceable sound that is heard in certain locations around the world by two to ten per cent of the population’.
Writing in the Journal of Scientific Exploration, he said that sources of The Hum could include telephone transmissions and ‘aircraft operated by
the U.S Navy for the purpose of submarine communications’.
According to Nasa, the Earth has ‘natural radio emissions’.
The Agency said: ‘If humans had radio antennas instead of ears, we would hear a remarkable symphony of strange noises coming from our own planet.
Scientists call them "tweeks," "whistlers" and "sferics."
'They sound like background music from a flamboyant science fiction film, but this is not science fiction. Earth's natural radio emissions are real
and, although we're mostly unaware of them, they are around us all the time.’
For instance lightning can produce eerie-sounding radio emissions, Nasa added.
This is entirely fantastic! I also began to hear it in late 2011 - I remember distinctly because I began university in that year. Prior to that time,
I had never heard such sounds ever before. It was only in early 2012 that I began to pay real attention to these sounds. And guess what - not only
does the first link state that they began to be noticeable in late 2011, but the thread that I first linked also states similar things beginning in
But I'm surprised that we have not been taught these things or made well aware of them. If I were to ask a young teenager what those sounds were,
he'd probably shrug his shoulders and go back to what he's doing (maybe first looking interested and then losing interest). Other people I've
talked say "Yeahh, I hear it" in an interested sort of way, but then they go back to what they're doing. Surely, we should be more interested in
this - and surely there should be some sort of announcement?
However, they did begin only about a couple of years ago - now I'm not saying that there's something sinister about them or that they're the
handiwork of governments or that they're natural phenomena that preclude the demise of the Earth; but you would at least expect governments to
officially inform the population and for schools to educate people?
What do you guys think?
