Strange Sound off Baffin Island

Posted by on Friday, November 4, 2016

Some Nunavut residents are looking for answers after a strange sound off Baffin Island.

The sound has been described as a "ping" or "hum" coming from the ocean floor.

People have claimed to have heard the sound this summer.

The Department of National Defence dispatched a CP-140 Aurora aircraft to survey the site but they found nothing.

The Hum is a phenomenon, or collection of phenomena, involving widespread reports of a persistent and invasive low-frequency humming, rumbling, or droning noise not audible to all people. Hums have been widely reported by national media in the Canada, the UK, and the United States.
