Mail Online recounts some examples:
- In August 2011, an “extremely loud” sound was recorded in Kiev, Ukraine, which an eyewitness said was heard by people in cities 18-25 miles (30-40 km) away.
- In Salzburgh, Austria, the noise was magnified across the Eastern Alps.
- In Montana on Feb. 18, 2012, the strange sounds gave Aaron Taylor “vivid nightmares.” He said, “‘My wife woke me from a dream last night where she says I was screaming like she’s never heard me scream before.”
Governments and scientists have no explanation for the sounds, although University of Oklahoma geoscientist David Deming has written in the Journal of Scientific Exploration 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.” He said sources of The Hum could include telephone transmissions and “aircraft operated by the U.S. Navy for the purpose of submarine communications.”
NASA says the Earth has “natural radio emissions” — “a remarkable symphony of strange noises coming from our own planet” which we would hear “if humans had radio antennas instead of ears. Scientists call them “tweeks,” “whistlers” and “sferics” that “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 example, lightning can produce eerie-sounding radio. Earthquakes, too, can produce sub-audible sounds, according to seismologist Brian W. Stump from the Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
The most disconcerting of the strange noises is what sounds like the blowing of TRUMPETS on May 7, 2015, in Terrace, British Columbia, which can be heard in the beginning of the video below.
Speculations on the Internet about what the eerie sounds really are include the grinding of tectonic plates, atmospheric pressure, noises from trains reacting to railroad tracks and overhead wires, building construction, the U.S. government’s HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), space aliens, and the apocalypse.
“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets…. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.“ -Book of Revelation 10:7, 11:15
