Heard a repeating pattern of music notes during a severve thunderstormMy husband woke me up and asked me if I hear the music. I wanted to kill him for waking me up but just then I heard the notes. It was very similar to the notes and pattern in the movie Close Encounters but had six notes not five. He knew I heard it and gave a sigh of relief. It did it again an couple of seconds later and this time I said, Whoa, it sounds just like the "song" in Close Encounters. My husband was so happy. he said he had been listening to it for about 15 mins and thought he was losing his mind. He had to wake me up to see if it was real or not. He said he purposely said "music" so as not to influence what I said I heard. I then said well the kids must be watching the movie or have a radio on even though it was repeating too often for me to really believe this. We opened our bedroom window and it was much louder and definately coming from outside. My heart was beating about a thousand miles an hour now and we went through the entire house checking every TV, radio, etc. We opened the garage to check the car radios and the hot tub (has a radio).It was storming unbeliveably outside, lightening and thundering like crazy but you could hear it plain as day. Sometimes it would get faster but always the same notes in the pattern. We went back to the bedroom and had the window cracked alittle because it was raining so hard when there was a boom which was similar to a sonic boom, it was that intense of a crack and the entire sky went completely white. This was no thunderbolt. The entire sky was completely white for about 2 or 3 seconds. After that we continued to hear the notes but they were much fainter and sounded much farther away.This was so completely weird and its freaking us out. My husband keeps saying that he had to have someone else verify what he heard. I know without a doubt what we heard but have to admitt I'd love knowing others did too.
