Latest sky noise freak out: Saskatoon. This is a Fortean flap.

Strange noises reported around North Battleford.

There’s been a lot of buzz over the last few weeks about strange sounds being heard in the atmosphere. People around the world and here at home have reported hearing some bizarre noises. The latest were recorded in the Battlefords last weekend.

Ian Hamilton, North Battleford’s mayor, says he can’t explain it. “What I experienced was a scraping sound, like a snowplow.”

University of Saskatchewan professor Jean-Pierre St. Maurice says there is a natural explanation. “Somehow they are picking up noise from an electrical antenna that is there. That is electromagnetic noise.”

OK. Snow plows in Canada. Everyone sensitized to these noises. Hoaxes ABOUNDING! I mean LIKE CRAZY. This is a Fortean flap. Here are other Fortean flaps that have occurred:

Now sky noises.

One thing to note, I’m not buying this professor and his electromagnetic noise. The aurora noise is very rare and hasn’t even been verified as real. As noted before in all the sky noise posts, there are some real noises, for sure, but there are also people hearing typical noises, perhaps under odd atmospheric conditions, that they are misinterpreting. Or, they are being hoaxed. The push for these noises to be grouped under one big apocalyptic umbrella is strong but wrong.

It’s getting ridiculous. Will the whole friggin’ year be like this?
