    I've heard several audio/videos of this creepy sound all over the world during the  2nd week of January.  It sounds like huge metal plates grinding together combined with a foghorn like sound.  I don't think it's fake, people are really hearing something.  What I'd like to know is the scientific explanation for this.

        That's pretty creepy lol. Like something from a movie. It's probably a hoax or something.

            No Autumn and mischeviousme, not a hoax. I heard the same thing a week ago and thought it was coming from a nearby US Gov't military installation until a friend showed me the Youtube Vids and was the same noise I heard that is on a lot of these vids. Unless there are military facilities near all these locations and it is some kind of turbine the military or industry all over the world is secretly testing.

    Here's 2 other links about the noise.

    The videos, clearly show that these recordings haven't all been made in January.  It seems another internet phenomenon, which will remain popular for a short time before being forgotten.  Last year at about this time, the news was full of mysterious bird and other animal deaths in different parts of the globe.  However, a lot of the reported cases actually took place years before.

    I wish I had the bandwidth to check those links out but does the sound sound anything like you hear here? listentothedeep.com

    This fascinating site is letting the public listen to the sounds made in the deep oceans off Canada and the US, after they have been vetted by the US military of course.

    Just listened to them. Mmmmm... If the Earth made those types of sounds, the birds would not be chirping. But there are videos where I did not hear any sounds but grinding noises, like platelets. I don't know if it is a hoax or the shifting of the Earth. I did notice that there were many videos created documenting sounds. So It does make a person question it.

    Most likely hoaxes to setup the gullible in believing the end of the world is coming.

      The noises also sound computer generated.

    I don't know if anyone remember this but there was once explosion in mine in EU nation and the fuel source is still burning with weird noises. I'll post the image if i get the bookmark from delicious.

    Youtube videos are not credible enough to make any judgement. Why? search for "longest snake in borneo" in youtube or google, you'll find all the fake photoshopped images and videos.

    Sound of hell from Siberia and other places is common hoax that is going on web ever since youtube like sites started free streaming on web.

    Birds chirp at almost any scary sound and shift in magnetic field, gas or if they sense shift in seismic waves. This was the reason our ancestors used birds to test dangerous gas leaks in mine.

    According to what I've read, it's a hoax. The sounds are from the movie Red State.

      Some of the sounds may be.  I checked the link that you posted in another thread, and it was interesting.  But the sound that the publisher (on that link) was able to include in his video did not sound like all of the strange sounds in the 15-minute YouTube video compilation.  One of the commenters (at that link) said that some similar sound had taken place at a baseball game and the announcers rather freaked out about it. 

      In my opinion, there's more than one thing going on with these "strange sounds"; but some people are nervous and on edge, and so a few different real sounds get lumped together with some that are probably hoaxes.

    I saw those videos and I kinda found them intriguing. My brother and I were trying to be skeptical, but something about them made my skin crawl and I was just antsy hearing it. Something similar occurred to me on New Years when I was praying. For a short time I heard this odd noise that came out of no where. It was low at first, then it got loud and I could not place the strange sound in the small room I was in. It was late so no one would be making such a noise. I tried to ignore it while praying, but couldn't. Since I'm use to a certain level of strangeness I opened a eye and saw nothing, but the feeling was odd. The noise was kinda similar in parts to the videos, but mines sounded glitche, technological a bit, and just indescribable. I couldn't pin point the actual sound from anything I ever heard the only description is alien. Though I have heard some people say it sounds like a horn or trumpet.
    My sound went away though and it sounded like it came from some unknown place or from above. I don't know this whole subject is weirding me out, but the sounds must mean something if they really exist.

      If they were real and I heard them for myself, I'd think the earth was groaning. But I am of the opinion that their artificial.

    Just like crop circles and recordings of hell from a Russian mine.

      stevehayposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      That is faulty logic you are using. Because some crop circles are hoaxes (or even a lot of them) does not mean that all crop circles are hoaxes. Yes there a lot of people who have gone out at night and created some amazing works of art flattening vegetation by stepping on boards, but legitimate and respected scientists in I believe Holland, have studied and tested many crop circles and not all of them are man made.  As to the strange noise videos on Youtube, it is only my opinion that most of these are not hoaxes, and I base that on having heard the same sound with my own ears.

    Not heard about it until now, but it is probably just some natural phenomenon.

    It's totally real, of course... you know, just like War of the Worlds kind of real.  wink  It sounds EXACTLY like the noise the tripods made in that movie, lol.  The one in Russia shows people walking around, clearly calm and not afraid.  Sorry, but if that sound were really reverberating through my 'hood, I'd be crapping in my pants!  I'd certainly not be walking around unphased like the people in the video.

    Plus, all the birds squawking from around the world sound exactly the same.

    An entertaining hoax, though.

    No strange sounds here in my quiet Welsh valley.

    No sirens or people yelling drunkenly in the street on weekend nights either smile

    I had found this video and well it is very convincing and two unlikely hoaxers I might add.  Its 8 minutes long so I will just point out some good bits for you,

    The couple are middle aged and seem to live in a rural setting, the wife sounds very genuine and understandably shaken, just over half way she is on the phone calling the police about it.

    Top point of reference: 
    The camera is always facing the direction of the source of this creepy sound, in the sky. 

    Just near the end of the video above the tree line top left, a big white flash is seen and the sound begins to fade away.

    Very convincing video and on this particular video the sound is coming from the sky and definitely not from the Earth, power lines or next door neighbours cat!

      That is seriously strange. (Good link, markbennis!)  I was tempted to copy and paste the "about" information under the video, but didn't want to plagiarize or to discourage anyone from checking out that convincing video.  The poster did indicate that the sound was (later) mentioned on the news and by the weatherman; they confirmed that it was not a tornado, although that had been the fear throughout much of the video. 

      All of the suggested reasons seemed odd - and then the National Weather Service described it as "Military Chaff."  What in the world is that?

      This particular video was uploaded in March of last year.

    That video was very convincing alright and I could feel the vibration of that thing from the audio, my speakers nearly walked of the side of my desk!  Well I did have the volume up a little, well maybe allot.  yikes

    We have heard that noise here in England too, and also something else out of the ordinary has happened the northern lights/ aurora borealis has been seen all over Britain which has never happened before as you have to travel way up north in to the tip of Scotland. Iceland or Norway to see it smile

      This has been due to a particularly large mass solar ejection. Nothing mysterious at all.
