Early this morning (about 12:30 am) my wife and I were awakened by a very strange noise. It sounded as if something was flying over head be we have never heard a noise like this before. It shook our entire house and flew over twice, about 6 mins apart. Did anyone else hear this? What in the world was it?

HI, I wanted you to know that I called the police department as well as the Cherokee Ledger, and they didn't know anything. I didn't hear it twice, although the first time was enough for me. I have also Googled to see if anyone else said anything about it, and couldn't come up with anything. I am going to go on Twitter to see if anyone sent any Tweets about it, but so far after investigating I am coming up with nothing...

I tried googling it as well and came up with nothing. Hence why I started this. Please let me know what you find out. We are VERY interested in this. Trying to come up with reasonable explainations but I have just NEVER heard anything like that before.

I dont want to sound like a smart alec but is it possible that what you heard was a snow plow going up and down the street? I lived up north most of my life and those trucks driving with the plows scraping against the pavement can make an awfull noise. If you are not used to it, it can be a little alarming. Just a thought....

Born and raised in upstate NY myself. Def not a plow, was overhead and it had a very weird hum. Also, Live on a dead end street which was not plowed. Believe me, I wish it was a plow...

I live near downtown Acworth on Lake Allatoona. I heard it twice. Sounded like a low flying big helicopter. Very loud, shook the house!

live in paulding county acworth, ga, off Cedar Crest. I felt a very large rumble that shook the house last night at about 10pm. I looked out my door and in the middle of the unfinished subdivision, or maybe a little further out. I saw a low flying helicopter i think. It was inclining and it flew away. Not sure why. awkward. anybody else see or hear it?

Came across this post bc my brother and I have been listening to what sounds like a metallic humming noise in the sky over what would be the direction of 575/92 in the Woodstock area. This has been going on for about 40 minutes with no gap. All it does is changes frequency and the pitch but otherwise it has not subsided. We at first thought a plane, then maybe the recycling plant and then lastly Dixie Speedway but we have realized all those are not it due to logic. Has anyone else heard it or have any ideas on what it may be?
Current time is 11:20, started around 10:40, still ongoing.

I live in Acworth near 92 and 75. My wife and I heard loud rumbles last night around 10:00. First we thought it may be thunder, but the sky was clear and it sounded more like a collision. It repeated for a few minutes. Then stopped for a minute and started again. I wonder if anyone else heard it or know what it is.

Wow my brother called me yesterday around that time. We heard a weird noise last week but yesterday he and his wife heard the same thing around the same time. They were saying it sounded like explosions in the sky and that they were both pretty spooked. Ill tell him to post his experience. They live in Woodstock.

My wife and I heard a rumbling sounds. Kinda like a jet engine but the sound was consistent (as if hovering in the immediate area) not like your typical dopplar effect of a passing plane. First bout was approximately 2-3 minutes and then it faded very quickly and was gone. Came back a couple times for about 15-30 seconds and faded just as quickly. Very odd. I have been in that house for over 3 years and never heard something like this.

So, today - 11/30/2012 Big noise - 9am - 9:30 ish. Sounded like a huge jet engine hovering overhead. Hovering being the key word here? Lasted about 4 minutes and stopped cold. Restarted a few minutes later and then stopped. It did it several times. Noon now and no additional noise. Very strange though. We turned on the police scanner for Cobb County and it was silent!!!! Nothing!!!! No chatter, No calls etc. Something very odd.

Not sure what time I heard the noise, but I first thought it was thunder, but it went on for to long. I live in Acworth and another person here in Acworth heard it and thought it was an explosion on I75, and another person in Kenessaw also heard it. Would also like to know what it was, because like the rest of the replys, it was like nothing I have ever heard before.

I live In Marietta pa. This morning my girlfriend and I where suddenly woken by what seems to be the sounds Mentioned above... It just came out of nowhere... We were freaked and kinda froze in place... It rumbled for a bit and trailed off... It was a few minutes till it was no longer audible. I was on here to see if anyone posted any info and I came across this thread. I'm very curious as to what we experienced. Anyone still checking this?
