Strange sounds reported in Widnes, U.K.

Strange sounds from the sky spook Widnes residents – Runcorn and Widnes Weekly News.

A series of unexplained sounds that have allegedly been heard around the world have been keeping a number of Hough Green residents awake at night.

In some instances the noises produced a loud rumbling sound like a thunderstorm but in others it is more like a ‘groaning’.

They have been labelled by many as the ‘sound of the Apocalypse’ and now it seems they have made their way to Halton.

“What make it even more strange is that it seems to happen exactly for an hour between 3.15am and 4.15am and loads of my neighbours say they have heard it too.

Tip: The Anomalist

The sky noise phenomena has died down QUITE a bit since the beginning of the year.There are MANY MANY alternative explanations for this. One thing you don’t often here is that they have figured out it was a local source. Interestingly, the clue is that it occurs at the same time everyday. That’s a hint that it’s NOT supernatural.

I’ve written about these stories here.

Also, I wrote about the phenomena in general here.

    Just throwing this out there: the town is 30 mi due west of Manchester International Airport, one of the UK’s largest outside London, and a truly international hub unlike, say, Cleveland, Ohio.

      Also, cargo flights operate at very early hours, when there is less air traffic.

    Why does HAARP get blamed for anything & everything? I believe it’s studying radio waves in the upper atmosphere. Correct? A bunch of antennas in Alaska. According to their website you can visit there. I don’t get why everything has to be some big dangerous secret. It’s a scientific study so I guess that’s not exciting enough. Excuse the rant, but people blaming everything on HAARP is a pet peeve of mine.

      I deleted two comments about HAARP being to blame. Fear mongering isn’t helpful and YouTube ISN’T a reliable source of information.

      And don’t “yell” at another person, please. Just say you don’t agree and why.

        I don’t think Lisa was exactly ‘yelling.’ It’s a reasonable expression of frustration, I think, given that HAARP (a bunch of antennas in Alaska) is routinely blamed for bad weather, earthquakes and erupting volcanoes.

        The very question of “why everything has to be some big dangerous secret” is a really interesting one, too.

    I live in Hough Green. I haven’t been woken up by it.

    Perhaps it could be something to do with the train station half a mile away, which sees its first express trains of the day barrel through about that time?

    Or it could be Manchester Airport and Liverpool Airport, both within 25 miles or so, having some kind of activity at that time?

    Or it could be as simple as the moron who always revs his engine when he pulls up outside at 11:15PM every single weeknight. Someone really needs to teach him about clutch control.

    If you can search for HAARP on youtube, you can similarly do a search for the official HAARP website, or even wikipedia.

    Of course, you might think that whatever explanation is given can only be evidence of a massive cover-up of whatever else you choose to believe HAARP is. In which case the words of computer scientist David Naiditch may be useful: “its purpose seems deeply mysterious to the scientifically uninformed.”

    Please, the truth is indeed out there but not very often is it on youtube.

    Is it the start of “Fracking”? All over the world they are trying to find and mine for more oil and gas. Is this noise due to that? Most people are asleep at the times it is reported.

      Mark: It has nothing to do with fracking. There is zero connection whatsoever. It’s just as likely to be space chickens. Or, Trains.
