Strange “Aurora Sounds” that sound like Star Wars blasters recorded in Sweden

For centuries, Arctic sky watchers have occasionally reported strange sounds filling the air as Northern Lights danced overhead. Hisses, crackles, and even loud "claps" have been heard and recorded. It may be time to add a new sound to the menagerie: blaster fire.


Photographer Oliver Wright who was inside the Arctic Circle said: "On Christmas Night 2016, I was standing beneath an intense display of auroras in Abisko, Sweden, when I heard something that sounded like Star Wars blasters."

As the lights danced overhead, a series of rat-a-tat 'swooshes' emanated from a nearby set of power lines. "Other bystanders heard it, too," he says. "I rushed closer to the power lines and was able to record a sample using my iPhone."

Wright says that the sounds waxed and waned in sync with the auroras overhead; the brighter the lights, the louder the sounds, reports Spaceweather.

What's going on?

"Aurora sounds" have long been a controversial topic. Some researchers insist that they exist only in the imagination of the listener, but there is growing evidence that they are real.

The sounds Wright recorded may be a result of "electrophonic transduction"– that is, the conversion of electromagnetic energy into mechanical motion. At the time of the Christmas aurora outburst, magnetic fields around Abisko were seething with activity.

Physics 101: Unsettled magnetic fields can cause currents to flow in power lines. Strong low-frequency currents can literally shake objects, launching acoustic vibrations into the air.

Wright may have recorded the unique sound of those power lines swaying in response to the magnetic storm?

Something Huge is melting out of the Antarctic Ice Sheet

Something Huge located between Prince Olav Coast and Prince Haraid Coast is melting out of the Antarctic Ice Sheet.  An enormous structure hidden under the ice sheet of Antarctica has become visible possible due to climate changes.  The structure which is not something natural or a crack in the ice sheet is 300 meters long, width measures between 30 – 50 meters, including huge walls and a tower of 10 meters high.  Could it be an ancient settlement, base or a shipwreck built a long time ago when Antarctica was not yet a frozen contingent or is it something extraterrestrial?

Cosmic, Earth and Underworld symbolism at ancient rock chambers in Hittite Yazilikaya, Turkey

For almost two hundred years, archaeologists have been looking for a plausible explanation for the ancient rock sanctuary of Yazılıkaya in Central Turkey.  Over 3,200 years ago, stonemasons artfully cut more than 90 reliefs of deities, animals, and chimaeras into the limestone bedrock.   An international team of researchers now presents an interpretation that for the first time suggests a coherent context for all of the figures.  Accordingly, the stone-carved reliefs in two rock chambers symbolize the cosmos: the underworld, the earth, and the sky, as well as the recurring cycles of the seasons, the phases of the moon, and day and night.  

Doorway to underground base on Mars

The image of Wrinkle ridge in Elysium Planitia on Mars was taken by the HiRISE camera on board NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft on April 2, 2008. The image shows what looks like two hatches fixed to the surface of Mars.  The sun reflects off the first rectangular hatch, which may be metallic, while the opposite side shows a dark rectangular shadow where the sun's light is blocked by the second hatch.  The hatches of about 7 x 12 meters are slightly open. This is a doorway that gives access to an underground basement?  Suppose it's not about something natural but artificially, we may wonder, other than who built it, what was it used for?  Google Mars coordinates: 8°50'17.09"N 150°36'32.13"E  

Hidden Image Exposed in Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" Painting!

Looking at the famous Da Vinci, “The Last Supper” picture, mirroring and inverting the picture in the correct way, inverting it right down the middle you get a hidden image that is unbelievable.
