A weird “ping” sound was heard during the summer in northern Canada
A military surveillance aircraft flew over an area above the Canadian North, where for a few days, a strange sound, a kind of “ping” from the seabed was heard by Inuit hunters and fishermen.
The sector that is the subject of this aerial surveillance is in the Strait Fury and Hecla, about 120 kilometers north of the hamlet of Igloolik.
The sound in question has been heard all over the Arctic summer.
Moreover, people living in this region of Nunavut said that there was much less marine life than usual.
The plane that made this overview, a CP-140 Aurora, was dispatched by National Defence.
“The Canadian Armed Forces dispatched a CP-140 Aurora aircraft on Tuesday, November 1 under the mandate of Operation LIMPID to investigate the alleged sounds,” Department of National Defence said in a statement to Global News. The air crew performed various multi-sensor searches in the area, including an acoustic search for 1.5 hours, without detecting any acoustic anomalies. The crew did not detect any surface or subsurface contacts.
During 90 minutes, the crew conducted a series of passages in different altitude and speed levels while taking sound measurements.
No acoustic anomalies were detected.
“The sound that has been heard in the area seems to be emitted from the seabed and underwater,” he said. “As well, this past summer, a private sailboat reported to the community of Igloolik that they also had picked up a strange noise or pinging sound in the area.”
The Aurora was led on site as part of what the military called ” Operation Limpid ” and described her as “a routine activity of national supervision, as part of all activities of the genre, in the air on land, on the seas, in space and cyberspace. ”
It seems that the sound phenomenon this summer has ceased. However, it remains unexplained.
