The Bloop, Creepy Noises from the Deep

What created this strange sound, recorded in the Pacific Ocean in 1997?

The image below is a visual representation of a loud and unusual sound, dubbed the Bloop, captured by deep sea microphones in 1997. In the graph, time is shown on the horizontal axis, deep pitch is shown on the vertical axis, and brightness designates loudness.

Although Bloops are some of the loudest sounds of any type recorded in Earth’s oceans, their origin remains a mystery. The Bloop sound above occurred several times off the southern coast of South America and was audible 5,000 kilometers away.

Although the sound has similarities to those vocalized by living organisms, not even a blue whale is large enough to croon this loud. The sounds point to the intriguing hypothesis that even larger life forms may lurk in the unexplored darkness of the deep oceans!

Or – a less imagination-inspiring possibility – is that the sounds resulted from some sort of iceberg calving. No further Bloops have been heard since 1997, although other loud and unexplained sounds have been recorded.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.

  1. The Bloop is just the Great Old One, Cthulhu, snoring away in his black tomb at the center of sunken city of R’l’yeh. Come on, how hard is this to figure out?
