Was it an elabourate prank?   Was it the sound of aliens?   Was it the second coming?

Those were some of the suggestions heard today, as many Terrace residents awoke to a rather unearthly sound, which was heard in many parts of the city at around 7:30 this morning.

The sound lasted for roughly 10 minutes -- and was recorded by many people.

Similar sounds have been reported all over the world in recent years -- including Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States.  

Various explainations have been offered as to what might be causing the sounds. 

A physics professor at the University of Saskatchewan theorized that it's likely electromagnetic noise emitted from auroras and radiation belts.
