An ongoing "sound" anomaly has been popping up around the world, and in Texas, too. People have been reporting humming or rattling noises, and sonic booms, and often feel vibrations along with them. Here's a recap:
Well, on Saturday and Sunday, residents of a Northeast Austin neighborhood felt their homes vibrating. The strange occurrence was chalked up to storm damage to a methane gas flare. With everything else going on, though, could something else more mysterious be to blame? Meteors and fast-flying jets are often to blame for such noises and vibrations.
The days preceding this "noisy" event saw a few interesting UFO sightings - one of a speedy satellite-like object making impressive maneuvers, and one of a pair of fireball-like objects zooming through the sky.
From May 4th, MUFON:
Seven friends and I where having a conversation out side when my buddy pointed up and calmly asked "what is that". We all turn around and witness two fireball like spheres glided in-sync across the sky heading westward. Did not make any sounds or any change in elevation before disappearing over the tree line. We all stayed calm and unaffected during and after the sighting. I'm a sceptic of this type of thing so I would really like to know what it was and if anyone else can account for this. I noticed a post on this site of almost the exact same event which happened a year ago to the day. Make me wonder if it an annual flight test of some kind.
And May 5th, MUFON
Last night behind my apartment building in south Austin Texas, I was watching the Moon, when my girlfriend and I witnessed an unusual light in the sky. The light was about two, (outstretched arm), phone lengths North of the Moon. My girlfriend noticed the object saying it changed altitude very fast. Then she brought mt attention to it. It was very noticeable having a starlit or fireball quality about. At first I thought it was a satellite but soon began doing things that are no indicative of known satellite or aircraft. The movements seem very controlled and sporadic. After each outburst it was joined by a second "light object". Then the second "light object" would move away and the movements began again. Back and forth, then S curves and Circles, in diferrent combinations all very precise. I felt as if I was watching a hi-tech flight exercise. The second "light object" playing the instructor and the first "light object" would carry out the exercise. All this lasted for 20 minutes... perhaps a lot longer as it was very cloudy and after this 20 minutes the clouds became so thick we could no longer see anything but cloud. I filmed about 5 minutes or so on my phone but the "light objects" were to high in the atmosphere to make a visable appearence.
