December 18, 2016 Spokane Valley, Washington - On the night of December 13 to 14, 2016, thousands of people in the Spokane Valley region of Washington state reported on Facebook and Twitter about strange, eerie sounds coming from the sky all night long. Here is one of the best YouTube postings of 11 minutes recorded by iPhone at 3 AM Pacific at Sullivan Road and Broadway Avenue in Spokane Valley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1f5BkFPpc0
Beginning at nearly the same time, 3:05 AM Pacific, 64-year-old Kathy Schlenker woke up startled and puzzled by “a crying type noise that made me get up and walk outside on the deck of my trailer home.” Kathy lives in a park of 1,700 trailers. Oddly, she never saw anyone else come out of their trailers while she stayed outside until near sunup between 4:30 AM and 5 AM, mystified by the eerie, crying noise.
