Mystery music floating along the shores of Yellowstone Lake has puzzled many hikers and park goers for over a hundred years now, and doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop anytime soon.
Imagine going on vacation from the hum drum of 9-5 life, to the majestic wonder of the Yellowstone National park! Now imagine, being at one with nature amongst the mountains, plains, and valleys. Then, coming to rest on the egde of Yellowstone Lake after an exhausting morning hike through the wilderness.
As you sit there, enjoying your ham and cheese sandwich with a little baggie of granola mix, a feint humming begins to tickle your ears. First distant, then slowly growing closer. Just a buzz of noise from far away but as it comes nearer, you begin hearing notes, then a melody!
Crystal clear harps harmonizing on the wind with trumpets and horns serenading you from the skies! Growing louder and more intense! How wonderful! …and strange.Where is this amazing music coming from? You search the clear blue, cloud dotted sky for any signs of, well… anything.
As quickly as it came, it begins to slowly fade away. The hum trails off in the distance as the mysterious sound disappears into the breeze.You’re left with a half-eaten sandwich in your hand and a half-chewed bite in your mouth that’s hanging wide open as you sit, perplexed at what just occurred.
THAT is basically what has actually happened to a few people visiting the park!
Be it natural wonder or something more extraordinary, we may never know, but we can imagine all the different possibilities of this mystery music that seemingly comes from the heavens. Give us some of your thoughts on what it could be in the comments below!
Yellowstone Gate writes:

Yellowstone Lake and the rugged backcountry that surrounds it is a place where millions go seeking solitude and silence. Yet it in a well-documented but rarely discussed phenomenon, some visitors to the Lake area have experienced remarkable celestial sounds of unknown and unexplained origin.

“They resemble the ringing of telegraph wires or the humming of a swarm of bees, beginning softly in the distance, growing rapidly plainer until directly overhead, and then fading as rapidly in the opposite direction,” wrote Hiram M. Chittenden in 1895 in his book, “The Yellowstone National Park.”

Chittenden’s description is one of several in the historical record — as well as many more from popular anecdotal accounts — of strange sounds or “lake music” coming from the skies around Yellowstone Lake and Shoshone lake.

    Very interesting. Projections from ET’s? The heaven’s? Underground machinery/bases? Some audio kin to project blue beam? Whatever it is, it’s a mystery and a cool one @ that. Remind me of another audio phenomenon occuring around the globe:

    Well that link Kevin put up lead to some interesting things. According to the link bellow… The harmonic resonance that is heard is completely natural. And occurs on an environmental ettena. It’s really not a noise but are electro magnetic waives from the aurora above of heads.

    Yellow Stone is on a Ley line and people do wounder if those points have special power and meaning. Considering Yellow Stone is a Volcano their is a big possibility the electro magnetic crap that is happining under the ground is admitted into the sky and those electro magnetic waives are what people are hearing. Here is another link explaining this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMT3kN4rNSs&feature=related

    DUN DUN DUN Okay here it is. These tones people are hearing are IN FACT Electronic Magnetic Fields ( EMF ) In this video bellow to someone who popped up in youtube, shows him making his own EMF detector, and the tones he picked up do sound similar to what people have heard…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRasrZLdeEU

    There are actually people that get this ringing and buzzing off their Tv’s..has happened to everyone, sometimes getting or hearing a ringing or buzzing in your head when you’re perfectly feeling fine due to some electronic device being on. But with these bigger flat screen TV’s there are an occurrence as well with people that get it even more so. Because of the Electromagnetic fields the TV actually does emit and some people suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
