“Sky Roaring”

They call it “the hum.” Apparently people all over the world are (and have been since the 1800’s) reporting a low-frequency noise that seems to emanate from the sky seemingly from no visible source.

The phenomenon is reported here on io9.

From the story: What exactly are we hearing in these YouTube videos posted by people who claim they’ve recorded ear-splitting roars coming from the sky with no explanation? Here you can see one of the latest, recorded in Budapest, Hungary last week. Conspiracy-lovers are calling them “apocalyptic sounds.” Whatever they really are, they’re freaking creepy. Are they jet engines attached to UFOs, bizarro weather, or pure fakery?

The sounds have been reported in Arizona US, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Alberta Canada, Budapest, The United Kingdom and others. What’s going on? Is it a worldwide hoax? A sign of the Apocalypse? An unknown weather phenomenon?

The story was also reported on The Truth Behind The Scenes blog and here’s a link to a blog that exists solely to document the phenomenon: Roaring Sky Blog.
