Low Loud Rumble

I wish to submit a report even though I did not see nor suspect I may have heard a UAP. The purpose of my submission is to serve as additional evidence in the event anyone else submits a report from my area.

At 22:14 I heard a deep rumble of what may have been a low flying jet. The ceiling was low due to rain clouds. This also prevented any visual confirmation. The sound was loud and intense. I judge that based on how long it took, it must have been a slow craft.

At 22:15 I heard a second, higher pitched craft approaching in the same direction from magnetic west to east. The second sound overtook the first and passed it. I make this judgement based on the doppler effect.

At 22:16, the doppler effect of the second craft fades below my ability to hear it. However, the first rumble is still loud. Based on the doppler effect, I can determine that it has passed overhead.

At 22:18 the initial deep rumble fades below my ability to hear it.

As I stated before, I submit this in support of any other possible reports you may receive related to tonight from my area. I have no confirmation of this being anything more than rerouted air traffic. I generally don't see or hear low flying aircraft overhead unless they are military helicopters.
