Aussie, I think they are lying! The govenment is testing secret rockets.:-o

HA! You might be right, Tammy! 🙂

The National Weather Service issued a Special Weather Statement on the evening in question and offered this explanation:

Special Weather Statement
National Weather Service, Tallahassee Florida
7.18 pm EST Wed Mar 9 2011

...Strange sounds being reported across the Florida Big Bend

There have been several reports of very strange sounds coming from the Woodville area since about 6.45pm EST. The National Weather Service believes this phenomenon is being caused by thunder from distant lightning strikes... bouncing off a very stable layer above the ground. This is called ducting... and can allow sound to travel unusually long distances. This sound has been mistakenly attributed to possible tornadoes... But we at the National Weather Service want to be very clear that there are no tornadoes... and none are expected.

Aussie,
Where the Weather Service states: "This is called ducting...and can allow sound to travel unusually long distances." - Can this "ducting phenomenon" carry the sound generated by the rocket engine testing unit also, especially when the test required a long run time?.
Thanks,
Swan

Great question! If only I had a great answer...LOL

Ham radio operators are quite familiar with atmospheric or tropospheric ducting. They call it skip. So, I would assume that rocket engine testing can be ducted. The question is, were there any tests being run at that time?

A storm front moved through Tallahassee a little before that video was shot. It was well to the south at the time. That tends to lend a little weight to the explanation offered by the National Weather Service.

Ok, I understand a little bit about talking skip. My great uncle was a ham radio operator. He was Duck upon Quack Quack Mountain. There was a storm front that moved through just shortly before so did that cause a temperature inversion causing ducting from an area that was that was testing? You guys are way out of my league.

In anycase, it was not thunder as the weather service said.

Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights. The Cassini spacecraft began detecting these radio emissions in April 2002 when Cassini was 2.5 astronomical units from the planet using the Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) instrument. The RPWS has now provided the first high resolution observations of these emissions that show an amazing array of variations in frequency and time. The complex radio spectrum with rising and falling tones is very similar to Earth's auroral radio emissions. These structures indicate that there are numerous small radio sources moving along magnetic field lines threading the auroral region.

Time on this recording has been compressed such that 73 seconds corresponds to 27 minutes, or, the recording is at 22x real time. Since the frequencies of these emissions are well above the audio frequency range, we have shifted them downward by a factor of 44.

Edited to add: The above is from the University of Iowa Cassini "The Eerie Sounds of Saturn's Radio Emissions" page.

Clouds in Alaska after a volcanic eruption.

Yes, that's right. Congratulations!

"...All of which is a rather nonsequitorial way of introducing this odd vulcan incident. In 1986, Alaska’s Mt. Augustine erupted, spewing gas and dust into the air. Through an uncommon but by no means extraterrestrial series of occurrences, water and ice condensed on the dust and wind currents swirled the stew into these bubble-like clouds. Creepy, eerie, and natural..."

Hint: Hubble took this image about eight years ago with its advanced camera capabilities - but something occurred more than 1000 years earlier to cause this phenomenon...what did Hubble capture?

"July 1, 2008: A delicate ribbon of gas floats eerily in our galaxy. A contrail from an alien spaceship? A jet from a black-hole? Actually this image, taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, is a very thin section of a supernova remnant caused by a stellar explosion that occurred more than 1,000 years ago.

This image is a composite of hydrogen-light observations taken with Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys in February 2006 and Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 observations in blue, yellow-green, and near-infrared light taken in April 2008. The supernova remnant, visible only in the hydrogen-light filter was assigned a red hue in the Heritage color image."
