A freezing Siberian lake is producing incredible sounds which have been compared to the singing of ‘aliens’.
A photographer in the Altai Mountains recorded the extraordinary and haunting noises while walking on the frozen water.
‘The mournful howling sounds made me really feel aliens must be close by,’ posted Svetlana Kuzina.
‘Finally – I thought, ‘I am on the verge of contact with extraterrestrial minds!”
She was frightened the first time she heard the ‘alien-like’ sounds in the middle of the night while photographing shooting stars at Lake Ak-Kem.
The noise was ‘soft, low, thick, long, taut, howling, changing between quiet and very loud – somewhat reminiscent of whales ‘singing’.’
In daytime the acoustics are louder and sharper, she explained on her Russian Facebook account, which chronicles her life in the wilds of Siberia
‘Then I realized the sounds were coming from the lake and stood there long after the shoot was done, feeling amazed and a bit scared by the lake’s song,’ she said.
‘Later I heard this song many times at different times of day.’
Expert believe the strange sounds are produced by the ice expanding and contracting.
This natural shifting produces a range of high and low sound frequencies.
