There are a lot of things that we can not explain to ourselves. We are drifting in a place that is just not close enough to reach the explanation about exactly how we came to be as species, about us after we cease to exist in this form, about other lives in the Universe and on our planet and about the reason why someone would invent such a thing as a fidget spinner. But all joking aside, sometimes we just can’t stop but feel that maybe, just maybe, there is something out there waiting for us to find it.

What if all of those unexplained sounds and sightings in nature are just a way of communication, a way of telling us that we shouldn’t give up on our search to find the hidden? Matthew N. captured footage featuring apparent atmospheric sounds in Davenport, Iowa. What do you think it might be? We are still not sure what those sounds remind us of, but one thing is for sure - they do sound eerie. It’s something we might hear in a scene of the Lord of the Rings franchise or the Game of Thrones series. The suspense of waiting to see the outcome after the noise has stopped is killing us, but we honestly can’t know, and we might never find out.

What are your thoughts about this? Do you have any idea about the origin of this sound? Make sure you tell us what you think in the comments down below.

    Those are tornado sirens and you know it. If you need more attention, you should run through the super market naked. That will get you attention.

      Definitely not tornado sirens unless they sound different in different locations. That sounds is too steady.

    No idea, but it sounds pretty. Heavenly music with no commercials. Pretty nice.

    I'd like to think they were angels singing.

    I heard the same sounds in the small town I live in in Kentucky. It was about 2 years ago. I have wondered ever since about the sounds. And it was not tornado sirens. I know what they sound like.

    The sounds are most likely civil defense sirens (in the distance) which are tested once each month, usually the first Tuesday or Wednesday. I remember hearing these when I lived in rural Iowa near Cedar Rapids.

    The newer blade of a plow truck barely scraping smooth concrete or well packed asphalt. It resonates like a saw blade or really big Tibetan bowl. You can hear it for miles around under the right conditions. I watched someone else capture it happening age years ago on YouTube. Eerie and cool, but not otherworldly in this case.

    Culverts stacked by construction crew. Wind hitting them at correct angle.

    Look up skyquakes. One more result could be, that Matthew might live close to a busy interstate. I live less than a mile from Interstate 40 and I can hear the traffic racing by off into the distance. Given my distance from the interstate, the sounds aren't very clear and give off a wide range like sound. If you're familiar with the Doppler effect, you will understand. The sounds in the video and the sound I'm hearing right now as I type this, are very similar. You be the judge.
