Dear Ones,

This video is about a very curious sound I heard in a vase during a geostorm on 17 March 2015. Would this be like the sound when you hold a conch shell up to your ear?

There is a lightly edited Summary after the video, including a Soundtrack.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

17 March 2015. We are in the midst of a geostorm today. I was looking at one of the NOAA/SWPC charts, and it looks like it dipped up to G9 today … just ever so briefly .. and then now it is back down to G8, I think, which is still quite a geomagnetic storm …

So anyway, I had this flower vase here …

… that I was putting flowers in, inside the house, and I was going to store it, and I held it up like this … [Shows holding the open end of the vase up towards her head] …

The back of it was facing one of the windows of the house, and I was getting ready to put it on a shelf and store it, and I heard the weirdest sound from it … the kind of sound I have never heard before.

It sounded so strange, and so different, that I was sure I was not able to hear sounds like that … But now I can hear it, you know? … It was weird.

So I brought the vase outside, where I noticed that I could hear more of a sound … like when you listen to a conch shell, you know?

And now I am going to see if I can record the sound with the camcorder. So hold on …

(playing the same, short recording five times … the silent intervals are between the clips)

 

21 March 2015: I did not record enough of that last geostorm in the vase, so I repeated the recording five times, so that you could get the general notion. And it was a weird sound.

So then I thought: I will wait till after the geostorm, and I will do a control study, and see what the vase sounds like then. And so now it is after the geostorm, and here is the control sound … the sound when the Kp index (the planetary K index) gets down to mostly … well, it has been pinging up to 5, but mostly down to the green zone (the normal zone). So here goes; take a listen …

(the sounds you hear are bird song and, at the end, a gentle breeze blowing)
