Weird Sounds in the News

Just some weird sounds in the news... Made me wonder about what is causing it... besides aliens and the fact that it's 2012 and all that crazy Mayan calendar stuff!

Strange thing... I woke up to a "grater like" sound the other night... I thought it was a snow plow... and now I think... it still was a snow plow ...
Listen to the video,  the professor from the University of Saskatchewan explains it... complicated... I  still don't think I understand.... Aurora Borealis... Electro-magnetic fields... I'm far from being a physicist. I need the more simple version!!!
