On the YouTubes: 'Strange Sounds' Over Reston


If you can't get enough of grainy YouTube videos of strange lights in the sky over Reston, maybe you'll enjoy this video of strange sounds over Reston instead. There are lots of fascinating conjectures on this fancy video's YouTube page and on Fairfax Underground, but no one seems willing to consider the fact that there's a giant honking international airport just a few miles away. To our untrained ears, it definitely sounds Not of This DRB, but who knows? Maybe it's part of the construction at The Great Hole of Reston. Or maybe the DRB has finally given up on its lighter than air conveyances and developed an unmanned drone with a cloaking device to make sure that all those party walls and courtyards aren't being painted some bizarre color, the end.

    I think the DRB Predator drone equipped with Mulchfire missiles was having engine trouble on one of its red mulch recon missions.

  5. One serious possibility? Venting the natural gas pipeline.

    Or maybe that's what they WANT us to believe.

    The truth is out there.

  6. People have really gotten carried away with these videos lately, and there is some serious hysteria present. Notice how the noises always sound the same, and on a few occasions the sounds have blatantly been hijacked from Tom Cruise's "War Of The Worlds" movie. Anyhow, enough of us on here actually live in Reston, and I haven't heard any abnormal sounds (Although sometimes I cannot figure on the source of a certain noise, that's what we get for living in such a high density area).

  7. I live in Gainesville, wife and I were at a light and we both heard what sounded like a fog horn, about an hour later we were at a park in Bristow, and heard what sounded trumpets in the general direction on where we live, which was about 4 miles away. About a week before that heard the same sounds over by the Gateway shopping center...these are real and lately they have been reported all over Virginia....

  8. I live in Stafford, VA. Last night I went out for a cigarette at around 4AM. At first I was just relaxing and smoking, but then I started hearing some very loud sounds coming from the sky. It sounded at first like someone was drilling into metal, and then it started to sound like these videos. Like an echo/drill/growl. It was pretty scary, I didn't think of getting a camera or nothing because it was 4AM and I was exhausted and just wanted to sleep. When I came inside my house I couldn't hear anything at all and eventually forgot about the noise all together.
