Unexplained Sounds Coming From The Ocean

Unexplained Sounds Coming From The Ocean  88

Several very unusual  sounds coming from the oceans have been recorded by scientists world-wide.

Are the sounds caused  by very large life forms lurking in the unexplored darkness of Earth’s deep oceans or perhaps something else?

Something is down there and experts do not know what it is…

All of these sounds have no thing in common – they remain unexplained.

Bloop

In 1997, deep sea microphones captured a loud and unusual sound, dubbed a Bloop in Earth’s Pacific ocean.

Although Bloops are some of the loudest sounds of any type ever recorded in Earth’s oceans, their origin remains unknown.  The Bloop sound was placed as occurring several times off the southern coast of South America and was audible 5,000 kilometers away.

The sound does have similarities to those vocalized by living organisms, but researchers say not even a blue whale is large  enough to croon this loud. In fact, no known creature on Earth can create this sound, scientists say.

“The sound waves are almost like voice prints. You’re able to look at the characteristics of the sound and say: ‘There’s a blue whale, there’s a fin whale, there’s a boat, there’s a humpback whale  and here comes and earthquake, Christopher Fox of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Acoustic Monitoring Project at Portland, Oregon said.But the Bloop is a mystery. Is it a monster of the deep?

No further Bloops have been heard since 1997, although other loud and unexplained sounds have been recorded in other places under different circumstances.

Listen to the Bloop sound

Other examples of unexplained sounds coming from the oceans are:

Julia

The sound was recorded on March 1, 1999 on the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array.

The source of the sound is unknown, but is sufficiently loud to be heard over the entire array. The duration is approximately 15 seconds and  is severely band limited. The approximate origin is 1999JD60 2218Z near 15S, 98W. Listen to the Julia sound

Train

This sound was recorded on March 5, 1997 on the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array.

The sound rises to a quasi-steady frequency. The origin of the sound is unknown.  Listen to the Train sound

Slow Down

This sound was recorded May 19, 1997 on the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array.

The sound slowly descends in frequency over about 7 minutes and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on three sensors at 95W, and 8S, 0, and 8N,  at a range of nearly 2,000 km. This type of signal has not been heard before or since. It yields a general location near 15oS; 115oW.

The origin of the sound is unknown.   Listen to the Slow Down sound

Whistle

This sound was recorded by the autonomous hydrophone deployed at 8oN, 110oW on July 7, 1997 at 0730Z.

Origin of the signal is unknown, and it was not detected on any other hydrophone. The band of energy between 1 and 6 Hz represents “strumming” of  the mooring in mid-water currents. Listen to the Whistle sound

Upsweep

This sound was present when PMEL began recording SOSUS in August, 1991.

It consists of a long train of narrow-band upsweeping sounds of several seconds duration each. The source level is high enough to be recorded  throughout the Pacific. It appears to be seasonal, generally reaching peaks in spring and fall, but it is unclear whether this is due to changes  in the source or seasonal changes in the propagation environment. The source can be roughly located at 54o S, 140oW, near the location of  inferred volcanic seismicity, but the origin of the sound is unresolved. The overall source level has been declining since 1991 but  the sounds can still be detected on NOAA’s  equatorial autonomous hydrophone arrays.   Listen to the Upsweep sound

What are these mysterious and unexplained sounds?

According to scientists, some of the sounds can have straightforward origins and they can be traced to weather and ocean currents.

The upsweep sound was first believed to be biological, possibly produced by fin whales. However, when the sound was picked up by receivers on opposite  sides of the Pacific, researchers concluded that it was too loud to have been produced by a whale. The signals also stayed the same over the course of  many seasons, whereas whale song should have varied as the whales migrated. Also, the sound was too uniform to have come from whales.

Although Upsweep’s relatively pure tone didn’t fit with the more varied sounds typical of other volcanic activity, the researchers speculated that it  came from some kind of oscillation of bubbly liquid, perhaps seawater coming into contact with a large pool of lava. “Somehow within the volcanic cycle,”  explains Emile Okal of Northwestern University in Chicago, “there must be some resonance of a column of water or gas.”

Unexplained Sounds Coming From The Ocean  89
Our oceans still hold many secrets left to unravel.
The train sound that resembles the rushing noise of a distant train could be ocean currents.

“Moving fluids generate vibrations,  just like blowing air through a clarinet,” Fox says. “If you have moving ocean water and the right conditions coming around a seamount  or something, that could generate sound.”

Scientists believe that the Bloop  sound most likely comes from some sort of animal, because its signature is a rapid variation in  frequency similar to that of sounds known to be made by marine beasts. It could be a giant squid, but then again we have little  information on these creatures. “We don’t have a clue whether they make noise or not,” says Fox.

Perhaps the most tantalizing sound is Slowdown, which has been picked up a few times every year since about May 1997.

“It sounds like an airplane going by,” says Fox. It has been detected in the Atlantic as well as the Pacific, but always from the  south, indicating an Antarctic origin.

Could the sound come from a moving iceberg? We simply don’t know. What we do know is that 75 % of the earth is covered with water.  97 % of earth’s water is in the oceans.

Now, don’t forget that we have only explored 5% of all our oceans. We really do not know what is down there….

Much remains to be learned from exploring the mysteries of the deep.

A “mysterious explosion” in Sasovo in 1991 from the newly declassified CIA documents on UFO reports

A "mysterious explosion" in Sasovo in 1991 from the newly declassified CIA documents on UFO reports 98

Recently, 700 classified CIA documents were published simultaneously, which describe cases of observation of strange objects in the sky only observation (!). In them, among other things, they write about a strange case with a UFO in Russia that seems to be related to the explosion in Beirut a few months ago, and they allegedly said that the explosion was caused by large amounts of ammonia nitrate, ie fertilizers stored in port while nowhere in history has such an explosion been allegedly caused by fertilizers.

Black Vault site owner John Greenwald Jr. He said it took a lot of effort to persuade the CIA to declassify the UFO documents by sending thousands of requests to the agency under the Freedom of Information Act.

A case in Russia mentioned in these documents is related to the mysterious explosion in Sasovo, Russia in 1991. The strange explosion occurred in this city at night, shaking even large buildings.

The small town of Sasovo is located about 300 kilometers southeast of Moscow. At 1.34 a.m. on April 12, 1991, half a mile from the southwestern outskirts of the city, a huge explosion was heard. Many government buildings and private homes were blown up by the shockwave, windows were shattered and fragments were thrown as far as thirty kilometers away, reaching the town of Chuykovo.

At the site of the explosion, a huge crater was created with a diameter of about 28 meters and a depth of 3 to 4 meters. In the middle of the crater there was a large bulge of soil 3.5 meters in diameter. Huge chunks of icy soil were scattered around the crater up to two hundred meters away. 

The magnitude of the explosion was so strong that the frozen pieces were thrown to a huge height in the air, and fell and were nailed deep into the ground. According to experts who carefully examined the incident, they pointed out that 25 tons of explosives would be needed to create this effect.

Military experts, such as Colonel Prodan and fire chief Matveyev, with extensive experience in similar incidents, said that in their view, the explosion in Sasovo was unusual. They used it as an argument for this view, that there was a total absence of chemicals that are always found after an ordinary explosion. Also the earthen lump in the middle of the crater is not something that is found in such cases. Even the way the shockwave propagated did not match a “standard” explosion.

The newspaper Komsomolskaia Pravda, proceeded to cite some testimonies about the incident but without commenting and drawing conclusions. From the testimonies it emerged:

  • Immediately after the explosion, a sound was heard like that of a fighter plane flying away from the area, but without noticing it.
  • An eyewitness said two explosions were actually heard, followed by a flash of light, followed by the sound of a jet fighter. And he claimed that he did not see any aircraft.
  • Another witness said that just above the power lines, 100 meters from the crater, a bluish, arc-like glow was visible.

The Russian government attributed the explosion to a large amount of ammonia nitrate in a report, military experts categorically ruled out this version.

The official version spoke of an accidental explosion of ammonium nitrate fertilizers, but many people insisted that before the explosion, they saw a strange “moving fireball” in the sky and were sure it was a UFO.

It’s a similar story to the explosion in Beirut: The FBI did not officially determine the cause – It is estimated that it was caused by an accident .. Two US government sources, who have learned about the official report and analysis of the circumstances of the explosion, said that the US services are also very convinced that the explosion caused by large quantities of ammonium nitrate, which was stored in a port building for years, was due to an accident.

Another incident of declassified records is a story that took place in January 1985, when the crew of a passenger plane en route from Rostov to Tallinn saw a strange object in the sky. The pilot who first spotted him at the beginning looked like an unusual star.

But suddenly a thin ray of light came out of this “star” and fell perpendicular to the ground, the ray of light splitting in two. All four people in the cockpit watched in surprise as two cones of light from the object fell on a white spot in the sky. While one pilot was wondering if he would report what they see in the control tower, at the risk of being considered insane. Suddenly, the white spot turned into a huge green cloud and then the pilot was forced to deviate from the course of the plane, because this object began to approach the plane at high speed at an angle.

After that, the crew contacted the air traffic controller at the nearest airport, it was Minsk Airport, and told them that they did not see anything unusual on their radars. However, the green cloud, meanwhile, began to follow the plane, “as if it were attached to it.” From inside the cloud, small lights shone, “like the lights of a Christmas tree.” 

The green cloud flew around the plane and one pilot shouted “Look, he’s imitating us!” as the “cloud” took the shape of a wingless plane. The cloud began to shine with yellow and green light. When the passengers of the plane were worried, the pilot told them that it was North Sela. It is reported that this cloud was seen by a pilot of another Tu-134 plane that flew in the same area,

In November 1955, one of the passengers on a train suddenly announced that he had seen a UFO in the sky. When he told the other passengers the lights went out and then they could see a “shadow” on the horizon in the sky. The shape of the object was not clear in the dark sky, but it looked like a half balloon with a small canopy at the top. 

The object was slowly rising vertically from the ground. At the top of its dome, a bright white light could be seen, and a pinkish-white glow along the perimeter of the “sphere”. The object was “like a small plane” in size and was about 3 km from the train. Suddenly, the passengers saw that the UFO stopped going up and suddenly moved in their direction, flying at high speed over the train and disappeared.

The mystery of the Nazca geoglyphs: they can be a spaceship landing pad or a water delivery complex

The mystery of the Nazca geoglyphs: they can be a spaceship landing pad or a water delivery complex 99

The Nazca Lines are mysterious blueprints and signs that are found in the desert in southern Peru. They are about two thousand years old. Symbols in the form of signs, some of which resemble animal figures, have no analogues in the world. Scientists have been trying for years to figure out what meanings they have. It looks like a key has been found to the secret.

For many years, researchers have adhered to two versions. The Nazca Lines can represent either an alien spacecraft landing pad or a complex system of irrigation canals. Both versions one and the second have their advantages, but there was more evidence in favor of the irrigation system.

They were first discovered in 1940 by UFO hunters. From a bird’s eye view, the beauty of complex and simple patterns is mesmerizing. They traverse the barren desert south of Lima.

The mystery of the Nazca geoglyphs: they can be a spaceship landing pad or a water delivery complex 100

Ufologists believe that these geoglyphs serve as a kind of reference point for aliens. Archaeologists claim that the lines were created by the pre-Columbian civilization but their exact purpose is not clear. A group of engineers led by Carlos Hermida from Spain came to the conclusion that there is nothing mysterious about the lines. The Nazca Lines are nothing more than a complex system of irrigation canals.

Hermida believes that the mystery of the drawings was solved with the help of numerous convincing evidence. These lines, in his opinion, were created using a pre-Inca technique known as water harvesting.

The satellites have created a mosaic of nearly 4,000 photographs that can be used for detailed analysis of geoglyphs. The mosaic has 75 rows and 50 columns of images. In total, it covers an area of ​​about 2500 square kilometers in the desert. Engineers are confident that this complex system served for irrigation – water through canals filled dry areas to the desired moisture level.

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited 101

Throughout the history of this African desert, tens of thousands of people have gone missing in its vicinity, and this is only according to official data. The sand is much more destructive than the ill-fated Bermuda Triangle. This is understandable, five thousand kilometers covered with sand.

Scientists know for certain that millions of years ago there were rivers, lakes, flowering gardens and, most likely, even the ocean in the desert, since numerous whale fossils were found in the sands.

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited 102

The ruins of cities, underground canals, through which water once flowed, were discovered. In one of the Sahara caves, ancient drawings and hieroglyphs were found, depicting humanoid creatures, around which there was greenery and water. There are a lot of mountains in the desert, where people have never been.

Perhaps the most mysterious place in the Sahara is rocky terrain with melted earth and traces of radiation. At this place, according to scientists, an explosion of incredible power thundered. There is a theory that all this is due to the fall of a meteorite.

This is confirmed by the chemical elements that scientists find in glass and iron. These elements are of unearthly origin, and most likely came to us with a meteorite. Moreover, the crater itself is hidden somewhere under the sands, and has not yet been found.

If you look at the desert from space, then the first thing that can be seen is the rings, called the eyes of the Sahara, with a diameter of more than fifty kilometers. There are rocky rocks near the rings that are not found anywhere else on Earth. The stones themselves are most likely solidified lava.

But all these secrets and riddles are not studied in detail, since archaeological and scientific expeditions are officially prohibited on the territory of the Sahara, due to safety. On the territory of the desert, armed conflicts constantly occur, which are a great risk for scientists. This is what official sources say.

There are many mysteries in the Sahara Desert but scientific and archaeological expeditions are prohibited 104

The desert can be easily studied from space, by analogy with, for example, Mars, where in the infrared range, with the help of orbiting satellites and telescopes, you can recognize artifacts, as well as make new discoveries. Unfortunately, this does not happen.

The Sahara Desert, along with the oceans of the Earth, remains the least studied.
