The strange grinding noise is the latest in a long series of similar sounds recorded all over the world.
Residents in Terrace, British Columbia were awoken on Thursday morning by a loud grinding/trumpet noise that rolled through the hills and across the city. Several peoplemanaged to record the din which has sparked a flurry of rumors and speculation."It seemed to be coming from the sky or underground, something so loud though," said witness Mandi Campbell.
"And I believe it was heard in Hazelton, which is close to here, and as far as the Nass." Another resident, Kimberly Wooke, had heard the sounds before back in June and was able to record this latest incident on her camera. ( see video below )Videos uploaded to YouTube have recorded the phenomenon across Canada and in multiple US states including Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Texas and Illinois.Theories offered to explain thenoise range from geological activity to a dumpster being dragged across the ground. In the case of this latest incident a city spokesman has also suggested that the sound is actually that of grader blade being straightened.

A Georgia resident caught a strange object on camera while filming her property after a lightning storm.
Margaret Pfeiffer had beensurveying her property when she noticed a bright object falling from the sky at an angle.
Pointing her camera upwards she was able to film it for several seconds before it disappeared behind some trees."I captured this after the fire from across the street here," she wrote on her YouTube upload. "Say what you will but, this has no wing"s as a plane would have. There isn"t even a shadow for the wing area."The footage has generated a lot of discussion sinceappearing online however a definitive explanation has yet to be found.

With pockets bulging with water, the Vietnamese man tried unsuccessfully to get through airport security.
The peculiar smuggling attempt took place following a flight from Australia to NewZealand this week.
Airport security officials noticed that something was amiss when the man tried to get through the terminal with pockets that were soaking wet and bulging with water.Initially claiming that he had actually filled his pockets with water so that he"d have something to drink, the man was searched and found to be carrying a number of tropical fish that he had been attempting to smuggle in to the country."This appears to be a deliberate attempt to smuggle fish into the country withoutany consideration of the biosecurity risk involved," MPI spokesman Craig Hughes said in a statement. "That"s something we take very seriously. The fish could have been carrying diseases or have the potential to displace native species."The bungling smuggler now faces either a hefty fine or a stint of five years in prison.

Researchers at the University of Washington have built a working human-to-human mind control system.
Previous mind control research has enabled brain-to-brain communication between rats but it is believed that this is the first time such a system has been successful with human subjects. The remarkable experiment was conducted by Rajesh Rao and Andrea Stocco who captured the wholething on video.
Rao was equipped with a special cap fitted with electrodes that were hooked up to a machine capable of reading electrical activity in the brain, while Stocco sat at the other side of the campus with a transcranial magnetic stimulation coil placed over the region of his brain responsible for hand movements.For the experiment Rao would look at a screen and play a simple computer game that involved firing a cannon, but instead of actually pressing a button he instead imagined his right hand moving to do so. Across campus, Stocco, who was unable to see or hear the game, felt his hand moving in correlation to Rao"s thoughts, a sensation that he likened to a nervous tic."It was both exciting and eerieto watch an imagined action from my brain get translated into actual action by another brain," said Rao. "This was basically a one-way flow of information from my brain to his. The next step is having a more equitable two-way conversation directly between the two brains."
