|deep, throbbing, sound heard; nothing sighted
I would like to know if anyone else noticed this. Last evening (November 18) at approximately 8:45, I began to hear, over the sound of a radio broadcast on my computer, a wierd, deep, almost physical, 'thrumming' noise. I muted the computer and could hear it somewhat better. I stepped out onto the back porch to see if I could locate where it was coming from or see anything. My dog stepped out with me. It seemed to be receeding as we stepped out, but it was coming from somewhere overhead. My dog, who was hoping that she was going to get to run off a racoon, stopped mid-stride and immediately assumed a 'Down' poslture. She looked straight up, however, from this position. She appeared afraid to move for a few moments. My husband stepped out onto the porch but the sound had faded away by then. I and my dog are the only ones that heard it but it was very strange. It had the same sort of pressure/air pushing sound that a Chinook helicopter makes when you hear it coming off in the distance. However, it was very much slower than the sound of rotor blades. And, it was different from a Chinook sound in that it seemed much, much, bigger. It actually scared me a little and I'm not a fearful person.It was a clear night but, from my vantage point, at least, there was nothing to be seen.
