Real or Hoax: Creepy “Trumpet Sounds” Heard in Batangas 

A video clip highlighting strange sounds reportedly heard in Lobo, Batangas on Thursday, June 4 is making rounds in the Internet.

The highly-talked about video shared by netizen Vincent Andy Magnaye has more than 200,000 views and over 7,000 shares on Facebook as of writing. Magnaye, who personally recorded the video at around 3:00 pm, said he and other witnesses were unable to find where the creepy sound came from.

In his Facebook post, Magnaye revealed that he discovered similar incidents occurring in other parts of the world.

“Nung aking nirisearch sa youtube kung may kaparehas na tunog ito ay nabasa ko na kaparehas lang ito ng mga kakaibang tunog sa langit sa buong mundo nung pinakinggan namin yung tunog nagulat kami dahil kaparehas na kaparehas nito yung tunog na narinig namin kanina,” he wrote on Facebook.

Netizens expressed their theories as to where the mysterious sound in the video clip came from.

While several netizens believe that the creepy sound is an indication of the second coming of Jesus Christ, others think it came from aliens or UFO’s. Still, some cynics pointed out that Magnaye’s video is fake as the sound in the video clip resembles the noises heard in other YouTube videos.

Where do these strange trumpet sounds come from?

In an article published on the Mirror UK, NASA claimed that the trumpet noises heard in different places in the world could be the Earth’s “background noise”.

“They sound like background music from a flamboyant science fiction film, but this is not science fiction. Earth’s natural radio emissions are real and, although we’re mostly unaware of them, they are around us all the time,” NASA said in a statement.

Jean-Pierre St. Maurice, a physics professor from the University of Saskatchewan believes that the strange sounds come from electromagnetic noise created by radiation belts and auroras.
