Trumpets from Heaven?

Noise from the Earth's atmosphere or the trumpets of angels? No one is sure what to make of the trumpet-like sounds coming from the sky.

By Mike Talty from Unsolved Mysteries

The first known report of strange sounds raining down from the sky came a little more than seven years ago, but it wasn't until 2011 that the reports increased.

Since then, the strange - some say creepy - sounds have increased and been reported all over the world: The Ukraine, Canada, England, Germany, Australia, Hungary, France, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Costa Rica, Belarus and the United States where the sounds have been recorded in several states including Montana. California. Wisconsin and TPYAC

Several YouTube videos posted online capture the sound. 

The noises have been described as something sounding like a rumbling of a train, metallic "groaning" or trumpets blowing. Some of these reports have been called hoaxes, but there are simply too many of them to have them all be a hoax. The simple truth is nobody knows for sure what the sounds are, or where they come from. 

Of course there is no shortage of theories, nor the diversity of those theories including trains shunting, the secret sky workings of HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), construction, weird traffic noise, atmospheric pressure, UFOs and The Apocalypse and the Seven Trumpets in Heaven as laid out in the book of Revelation in the Bible. 

See how diverse? 

Aaron Traylor of Missoula, Mont., captured the sounds while walking with his daughter near an elementary school in February 2012. As he wrote in a blog one week later: 

"I was taking my daughter out for her daily exercise along with my dog. I started to hear the sounds early on ... and the first time it was heard my dog perked her ears up and my daughter stopped in her tracks. 

"That sound was identical to the one I had taped later, and lasted just as long. Now since I've been following this worldwide strange sounds phenomenon for some time, the whole 'end of the world' thing popped instantly into my head was what if this was one of those sounds? I had my phone ready to capture the next one just in case. Sure enough, five minutes later the sound had returned."

Traylor wondered if the sounds could be coming from trains, but wrote "The Missoula rail system in one very loud and unpredictable beast. Trains connecting their loads to another is a sound very familiar to locals. Loud bangs and screeches can be heard from nearly 10 miles away at any given point throughout the day. 

"Still, that doesn't explain the fan-like whirring that can be heard at the start of the recording." 

In Canada, Kimberly Wookey has recorded several minutes of the unexplained sounds, and on one of her YouTube recordings said, "This is the second time I personally have heard these sounds here in Terrace, British Columbia. First was June 19, 2013 at approximately 9-9:30 a.m. but it was not quite as intense. 

"On the morning of August 29, 2013 at approximately 7:30 a.m., I was awoken by these sounds. I shot out of bed realizing it was the same sounds I had heard before." 

In April 2015, a video shot in Germany from the upstairs of a house captures the sounds while a young boy seems stuck in his tracks down on the street. 

So what can we make from this? Depends on who you ask. 

The London Daily Mail, which covered the weird noises in May 2015, wrote that geoscientist David Deming of the University of Oklahoma believes the noises may be what is known as The Hum - "a mysterious and untraceable sound that is heard in certain locations around the world by two to 10 percent of the population." 

Deming says The Hum might be created by telephone transmissions or "aircraft operated by the U.S. Navy for the purpose of submarine communications." 

While that may be plausible, U.S. aircraft alone would not explain why the trumpet-like sounds are being heard around the world - not just in the U.S. NASA has its own theory, calling the noises Earth's "natural radio emissions." 

Furthermore, 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 'tweaks,' '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." 

But some don't buy into the scientific explanation, sug-gesting a totally unscientific explanation: The unexplained sounds are coming from Heaven.

They point out that in Revelation, the Apostle John writes about the end of the world in which seven trumpets are sounded - one at a time -setting off the apocalypse.

Which all can be a little unsettling. 

The small group of people that choose to believe a more divine explanation point to the sounds themselves: They're coming from the sky, and any other explanation is guessing. 

The mystery of the strange sounds continues because nobody has been able to unequivocally prove their theories. 

But almost everyone who hears the noises agree on one thing: They are creepy.
