Is it aliens? Strange, mysterious noises coming from deep in the Arctic
Los angeles : Is it aliens, sea mammals or something else? A mysterious noise emanating from the sea floor in one of Canada’s northern territories has been puzzling the residents and locals in the region.
The source of the noise is yet to be identified but locals believe that it has been heard throughout Fury and Hecla strait, a channel of water in the Nunavut region.
The mystery is now scaring people as the remote area is located in the northernmost territory of Canada. It is the same region where some residents rely on hunting for their food supplies.
According to locals, there has been a decline in the number of sea mammals over the last few days which they have attributed to the strange noises.
They have described the noises as a “ping” or a “hum”.
As per MLA George Qualut, “That passage is a migratory route for bowhead whales, and also bearded seals and ringed seals. There would be so many in that particular area. This summer there was none.”
Some people speculated that the noise has been coming from Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation’s mining activity to the conservation work of Greenpeace, however, it has been denied by both organisations.
The Canadian Department of National Defence is currently investigating the noises but no progress has been made so far.
