Anyone else hearing a strange "whistling" sound tonight?
I keep hearing this damn whistling or high pitched whining sound. It sounds like it coming from when side of the house.

So I get up and it stops. I walk over there and listen for it. Now I hear it again, and it's coming from the other side of the house. Where I just left.

It's driving me nuts!

Anyone else experiencing any weird sounds/other stuff tonight?

What's with the stupid responses tonight?

It isn't ear wax. It isn't the f'cking computer.

It is a loud clearly audible sound. That sounds like it is coming from outside one side of the house. I can hear it with everything turned off. I can hear it with the tv and computer on.

But it switches direction when I go to check it out.

Damm!

Yes, today outside my house was a noise I couldn't find. Like something was running, not so much a whistling noise, but more like a high-toned whirring sound.

Lots of critters around me make noise, but this is not a critter noise.

I'm in the mountains in South Carolina.

The noise is outside my house and I cannot account for the source. It's warm here in the South and the heat is turned off. Supposed to be 85 tomorrow and 86 Saturday.

The noise is constant, not too loud, but there and I would describe it closer to being an animal type noise than mechanical, but it is not an animal noise. The noise is in the "air" and I don't know of any other way to descibe it.

It is a very high pitched sound. I have been hearing it all evening and I am in central Ohio. It is to the point it almost hurts my ears. So, yes...I hear it too!

Re: Anyone else hearing a strange "whistling" sound tonight?
Maybe you are sensitive to infrasound or maybe the acoustics around you has somehow resonated or increased the frequency into the hearing range.

Look at this plot [link to 137.229.36.30] and notice that the pulsations go off the scale above 5Hz and maybe close to human hearing >~16Hz. Click on 'Play it!' below the plot to hear the pulsations/whistling sound that have been brought up into the human hearing range.

Infrasound
From Wikipedia
<Infrasound is sound with a frequency too low to be detected by the human ear. The study of such sound waves is sometimes referred to as infrasonics, covering sounds from the lower limit of human hearing (about 16 or 17 hertz) down to 0.001 hertz. This frequency range is the same one that seismographs use for monitoring earthquakes. Infrasound is characterized by an ability to cover long distances and get around obstacles with little dissipation. Possibly the first observation of naturally-occurring infrasound was in the aftermath of the Krakatoa eruption in 1883, when concussive acoustic waves circled the globe at least 7 times and were recorded on barometers worldwide.>

<Infrasound sometimes results naturally from ocean waves, avalanches, earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteors. Infrasound can also be generated by man-made processes such as explosions, both chemical and nuclear. The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization uses infrasound as one of its monitoring technologies (along with seismic, hydroacoustic, and atmospheric radionuclide monitoring).

Whales, elephants, rhinoceros, giraffes, okapi, and alligators are known to use infrasound to communicate over varying distances of up to many miles as in the case of the whale, for instance. It has also been suggested [2] that migrating birds use naturally generated infrasound, from sources such as turbulent airflow over mountain ranges, as a navigational aid.

Scientists discovered by accident that the spinning core or vortex of a tornado creates infrasonic sounds. When the vortices are large, the frequencies are lower; smaller vortices have higher frequencies. These infrasonic sound waves can be detected for up to 100 miles away, and so can help provide early warning of tornadoes.

Concerning behavioral patterns of animals and the infrasonic effects of natural disasters, it is to be noted that animals can also recognize the infrasonic waves emitted from such natural disasters and can use these as an early warning. A very important example of this is the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Animals were reported to fleeing the area far before the actual tsunami hit the shores of Asia.[3] It is not known for sure if this is the exact reason, as some have suggested it to be the cause of electromagnetic waves, and not infrasonic waves, that has sent these animals away.[4]

It has long been realized that infrasound may cause feelings of awe or fear. Since it is not consciously perceived, it can make people feel vaguely that supernatural events are taking place. In a controlled experiment published in September, 2003, people at a concert were asked to rate their responses to a variety of pieces of music, some of which were accompanied by infrasonic elements. The participants were not aware of which pieces included the infrasound. Many participants (22%) reported feelings of anxiety, uneasiness, extreme sorrow, nervous feelings of revulsion or fear and chills down the spine which correlated with the infrasonic events. In presenting the evidence to the British Association, the scientist responsible said "These results suggest that low frequency sound can cause people to have unusual experiences even though they cannot consciously detect infrasound. Some scientists have suggested that this level of sound may be present at some allegedly haunted sites and so cause people to have odd sensations that they attribute to a ghost—our findings support these ideas".> [link to en.wikipedia.org]

OP I had the same thing happen to me. I turned out to be my monitor. If I rebooted the computer and the monitor wasn't on it would not set the right refresh rate on the monitor when I turned it on and would make a high piched whistle. It was a strange sound that was hard to locate. Good Luck.

Maybe you have a leaky water or gas pipe. They make whistling noises.

Not 'tonight' did I hear whistles, but a few days ago.

I awoke aware of a brief a pattern of whistles/beeps, which went away and returned depending on my hovering state of waking consciousness.(brain wave state)

I have never heard them before.

Thanks to the AC's from Ohio and South Carolina. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

That's a good way to describe it, more of an natural sound, not mechanical.

AC 2307,

I don't know. I'm not the only one who's hearing it, thankfully. But none of us are in the same place, I'm in PA by the way.

We don't get many earthquakes around here. I've only ever felt two in my whole life. And they were both on the same night eight years ago.

Re: Anyone else hearing a strange "whistling" sound tonight?
Hmm, I'm in South Carolina also, and have been hearing high frequency noises. I'ts nothing like whistling to me though, which is why I said it might be leaky pipes at first. I've always tried to describe it as the sound a camera flash makes when it's charging up. It passes through my ears and pops, then fades away slowly, blending into the background noise.

I've been watching this site for awhile, and have never seen activity like this for Cow Castle Creek. Check your state and see if it's anything unusual.

I really don't know how to describe the sound. Whistle, whine, squeel.... High pitched noise, I don't know what words to use.

Re: Anyone else hearing a strange "whistling" sound tonight?
There is a mild geomagnetic storm underway, somewhat unusual being this is near solar minimum, and there are some reports of people seeing the northern nights tonight, Earth's aurora. There are numerous anecdotal reports of people hearing the sound of an aurora, but there is no scientific explanation about how an aurora could produce, so the theory of auroral sounds is not accepted, but commonly reported. Maybe go outside and take a look for some lights in the sky to go along with these strange sounds you're hearing.
