Oklahoma man reports “strange sounds” and “sky trumpets” near his home
The forest workers in this screengrab recorded a strange sound near Conklin, Alberta in Canada. Strange sounds are being reported not only in Canada and here in Oklahoma, but around the world.

OKLAHOMA CITY – In January of this year, strange reports began to circulate on alternative news websites about strange sounds being heard by people in locations around the world. The sounds, which varied in some instances, were a mix of scraping and roaring with other sounds and tones also detected.
The reports began making it into the mainstream, and while the reports have subsided somewhat, their cause and source remains unknown.
Red Dirt Report recently received a tip from a reader in a suburban/rural area between Owasso and Claremore, Okla., in Rogers County. The reader, who we will call “Owen,” gave a very eerie account of what took place at his home on a “beautiful day” in either late September or early October of 2011. Owen was home recovering from a knee operation and had his patio doors open so his dogs could go in and out and he could enjoy the fresh, autumn air.
That is when Owen – retired from the U.S. military – heard something that chills him to this day.
“I heard a BIG noise,” Owen wrote to us in a written account he emailed Red Dirt Report. “My first thought was that a large bucket loader was scraping across concrete, only it had too much of a tone quality to it. The sound persisted and by now my pets had lined up inside and one was climbing into my lap.”
Owen said he managed to get up and go out onto the patio so he could get a better sense of where the sound was coming from. He would tell us in our earlier phone conversation that it was a sound that he said made him feel “small” and “insignificant.”
“(I) listened to the biggest, most encompassing, enveloping, surrounding, permeating noise coming from where? Somewhere? No matter how hard I tried to determine where it was coming from, I couldn’t. It just came from everywhere, and it had a peculiar tone quality that almost sounded like a horn of some type, albeit a very big horn.”
Owen said he stood there on his patio for approximately 10 minutes, enveloped by this unearthly sound, until it eventually “faded away.” He wrote that as he listened “I could could not help the feeling of being somewhat worried, or concerned, even small and insignificant given the powerful, overwhelming rhythmic tone that just WAS.”
Owen’s “strange sound” and “sky trumpet” experience took place at a time when these “strange sounds” and “sky trumpets” were being heard and recorded all over the world, with YouTube videos and eyewitness (or “earwitness”) reports going viral nearly three months ago.
Concludes Owen: “Since (his experience) I have noticed on the web that others around the world have heard this as well and thankfully had the presence of mind to record and post their experience. Some of those recorded sounds are very close to what I heard. A group in Canada in the forest (recorded a sound that) was particularly close in tone to what I heard here hust a few miles east of Owasso, Oklahoma.”
A number of the reports, curiously enough have come out of Canada, with sounds recorded in the provinces of Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan and elsewhere. A number of reports, including this Jan. 24, 2012 report out of North Battleford, Sask., included that city’s mayor saying he heard the sound and that “What I experienced was a scraping sound, like a snowplow.”
And one of the better-known “sky sound” videos was recorded by men working in a forested area near Conklin, Alberta in Canada. This is the report Owen is referring to in his earlier comment.
In the city of Windsor, Ontario, across from Detroit, Michigan, strange rumblings and a “hum” have been heard in that Canadian border city for many months now. The CBC reported earlier this month that the “Windsor hum,” also described as sounding like an “idling semi truck,” is enough of a problem that a Canadian member of parliament visited Washington and met with Michigan’s U.S. Rep. John Dingell and asked for his help in trying to “find a solution.”
Other sounds are being heard and recorded in Europe and South America. This video from the Czech Republic, posted on YouTube in early January, is truly unsettling.
In a report from The American Dream headlined “What is causing the strange noises in the sky that are being heard all over the world?,” the reporter notes: “Perhaps the biggest reason why these strange noises have so many people alarmed is because humans generally have a great fear of the unknown. If the cause of these strange noises is revealed, the hysteria will die down. But if these strange noises continue (or even become more intense) and there continues to be no scientific explanation for them, then the hysteria may turn into full-blown panic.”
And closer to home, there was that video report out of Amarillo, Texas where some local radio disc jockeys recorded the strange sounds. On YouTube, there are several videos out of Oklahoma. One, reportedly from here in the Oklahoma City area is very faint but still noticeable. It sounds artificial. There are also uploaded videos from Tulsa and McAlester, all recorded in the past several months. One report, recorded by someone in Oklahoma City on March 20, 2012, records the roaring, whooshing sound for nearly eight minutes.
And things got so bad for folks in Clintonville, Wisconsin last week that the government had to intervene and claim that that the strange booms plaguing their town were simply the result of “micro-earthquakes,” so as to reassure the community it wasn’t something more extraordinary. However, residents weren’t convinced and the booms have returned.
Are they all fake? Are they all hoaxes? Perhaps some of them. Several, we believe, have been debunked. There is speculation that there is a connection to recent, powerful solar flares interacting with the Earth’s atmosphere. Others suspect HAARP. In the book HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy by Jerry E. Smith, he notes in a chapter on mind control that the government has developed certain, secret sound technology that can be transmitted and alter a person’s mind. Hypnotic commands could be transmitted through certain sounds that go directly to the brain. This manipulative, drug-like, advanced technology exists and could be connected to the sounds people are hearing around the world.
As Smith writes: “Could HAARP be used someday to send a target population on an LSD-like trip? The answer seems to be ‘yes.’ This could be used to do more than merely disrupt soldiers in battle. Imagine the chaos, death and destruction that could be induced if they were to beam a ‘prerecorded drug’ at a population center that made the people go wild with, say, sexual desire, or uncontrolled rage.” As Owen told < em>Red Dirt Report, the sound he heard made him feel uncomfortable, “small” and “insignificant.” Is this sound part of a secret weapon being tested on an unwitting population? We have seen an increase in bizarre behavior. Stressed-out people stabbing and shooting people. Loren Coleman, writing at his Twilight Language blog, refers to the recent uptick in bizarre and violent behavior this month as “March Madness.”
With continued wars, uprisings, economic uncertainty and a Carter-esque “malaise” sweeping many parts of the nation, strange booms, rumblings, and creepy sounds of unknown origin can’t be helping matters.
And, it goes without saying that religious people are attributing the “trumpet” sounds to the Book of Revelation in the Bible. It is seen as part of the “end times.” And with this being 2012, others believe the end of the Mayan calendar is a warning to humanity that time is short – or at the very least, life here will dramatically change in a matter of months. Look at this article about ancient pyramids shooting energy beams into space. What is going on?
Some of the bone-rattling “trumpet” sounds seem as though they were lifted from the soundtrack of the recent remake of War of the Worlds. Others like passing jet aircraft. A video report from Oshawa, Ontario features sounds like waves crashing on rocks or a chain being dragged across the floor.
But back to our friend Owen up in northeastern Oklahoma. He says he did not record or videotape the sound, but he tells Red Dirt Report: “My video camera is charged and ready.”

OKLAHOMA CITY – While the frenzy of reports involving “strange sounds” appears to have subsided in recent weeks, our story “Oklahoma man reports ‘strange sounds’ and ‘sky trumpets’ near his home” generated a few comments from readers who had “strange sounds experiences of their own. Names have been changed due to the controversial nature of the subject.
The first reader we heard from was Stacy. After reading the aforementioned story, Stacy, living in northern Virginia, said the portion of our story about “Owen” near Owasso, Okla. hearing a sound that sounded like a “large bucket loader … scraping across concrete” and having a “tone quality to it” was “almost exactly” how she heard nearly identical sounds two nights in a row, sometime in the fall of 2011.
While about a 20-minute drive from metro Washington’s Dulles International Airport, Stacy said she was sitting out in her outside, covered, screened-in porch, at about 11 p.m., when she heard a sound that “sounded like a very large, unusually outsized road grader or machine with a very large blade or bucket scraping the road.”
There was no snow on the ground to be plowed, and while Interstate 66 was not far away, no road grading was going on, to her knowledge.
Millie, a media professional, wrote to Red Dirt Report with an experience that went back to October 2010 and occurred during a trip to the California side of Lake Tahoe. Living on the West Coast, Millie was with her husband, a science teacher, who needed to attend an evening science class in that area.
Wrote Millie in an email: “We were driving along Highway 89 through the mountainous pristine forest when we heard loud booms and then what sounded like a freight train going right along side our vehicle. However, there were no train tracks and there was no construction or anything or anyone in the area. As we drove and continued to hear the loud noise we rolled down the window and the sound seemed to surround us. I remember experiencing an eerie feeling or sensation almost like an out of body experience, but it wasn’t.
Continuing, Millie wrote: “I would have to say the event lasted about eight-to-10 minutes. As soon as we arrived in Tahoe we no longer heard the sound but certainly talked about it all weekend with the other teachers who were also part of the science class. We were certainly a bit spooked about what happened and now that other similar reports are coming out, we are really wondering what on earth that noise was.”
Another reader, Jeremy, simply wrote us about his experience that took place in October 2011, while he was standing on his front porch.
“I heard what I thought to be a low-flying jet fixing to come over my house. So, I walked out on the lawn and watched as it got louder and it lasted about a minute or two and then it ended. So, I checked the weather to see if an storms (were) in the area and nothing showed.” Jeremy said he has been researching this sound, thinking he was the only one to hear it, only to find our recent Red Dirt Report article. Thank you, Jeremy, for contacting us.
Perusing news reports on the web, we see that while the strange booms being heard in Clintonville, Wisconsin have subsided while “loud banging sounds, earth-shaking tremors and … flashes of light” are being heard 130 southwest of Clintonville in Baraboo, Wisconsin, according to Gather.com. Flashes of light now? It gets stranger and stranger.
We hope Red Dirt Report readers will continue to send in your “strange sounds” reports to email@example.com. And thanks to Spirit Daily for linking our earlier story.
More Strange Sounds in Wisconsin – Now in Baraboo (Video)
Strange sounds are still being heard in Wisconsin, but now they are accompanied by a flash of light. At least that’s the story coming out of Baraboo, approximately 130 miles to the southwest.
The “booming sounds” story seems to have settled in Clintonville, WI, with a week having passed with no more reports of earth-shaking booms disturbing the sleep of residents overnight.
That’s a relief to those citizens who were skeptical of a USGS conclusion that the noises were the result of micro-earthquakes.
But in Baraboo over the weekend, police received several 911 calls from spooked residents claiming to have heard loud banging sounds, earth-shaking tremors and, in a new twist, flashes of light accompanying them.
Police at first assumed it must have been a transformer explosion. “When those things go off they make a really loud pop and usually there’s a flash of light as they’re surging off the electricity,” said Chief Mark Schauf.
But a check of the local power company shows that no such thing has happened. So it’s just another mystery.
Will it continue? Will the story become as big as the strange sounds incidents which plagued Clintonville for more than a week?
Honestly I don’t know what to think…therefore I’ll just throw it out there at you and you decide.
Within a week from each others two pyramids, one in Bosnia and one in Mexico, have been found to emit a beam of energy from their top.
Earlier last week I was reading on an Italian website about this extraordinary discovery that a team of physicists made while studying the 12,000 year-old Bosnian ‘Pyramid of the Sun‘ situated near Sarajevo, the oldest known pyramid in the world.
The physicists detected a beam of energy coming from the top of the pyramid. The radius of the beam is 4.5 meters with a frequency of 28 kHz and its strength increases as it moves away from the top of the pyramid.
In addition to that the ionization levels inside the building is 43 times higher than the average outside concentration, making it an ideal place for rejuvenation and regeneration of the body.
The 220 meter-high pyramid (the pyramid of Egypt is 147 meter) was built by an unknown civilization. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, according to the Geodetic Institute, is accurately pointing to the cosmic north with an error of 0 degrees, 0 minutes and 12 seconds, too incredible to be a fluke.
A week after reading the Italian report, I saw this photograph on Gizmodo. The Mayan pyramid of Chichen Itza in Yucatan, Mexico, seems to be irradiating a beam of light/energy off its top, similar to the Bosnian pyramid.
The photo, taken by Hector Siliezar while visiting the ancient ruins with his family, was commented by a NASA researcher. He thinks that “the intensity of the lightning flash likely caused the camera’s CCD sensor to behave in an unusual way, either causing an entire column of pixels to offset their values or causing an internal reflection (off the) camera lens that was recorded by the sensor.”
The photographer commented that the light-beam was not visible to the naked eye when he took the photo, and could only be seen in the captured image.
This could corroborate the NASA explanation of a technical glitch, that I find strange being precisely aligned with the top of the pyramid, or could be, like in the Bosnian pyramid, a beam of energy not visible to the eye but the camera could have picked up.
As I’ve told you at the beginning of the post, both reports come to no real conclusion and leave lots of room for speculation. Could simply be a matter of energy forces, a fluke, or ancient civilization sending messages to mothership.
