Was this weird sound an extra-terrestrial phenomenon or is there a scientific explanation? A mysterious sound filled the air in Manchester last night despite high winds drowning out the noise of the busy city centre. Scroll down to video!

Now, you probably remember the eerie sounds coming from One World Trade Center tower? They were produced by the wind battering Manhattan and its buildings.

Well, the haunting noise that kept many city-dwellers awake may have exactly the same origin as winds of up to 70 mph inundated the region yesterday.

The humming noise as actually a name: the Beetham Tower Howl and can be heard (loud 250hz frequency) all the way around the two square mile city centre and in suburban areas like Chorlton and Miles Platting.

The Beetham Tower Howl

The building is the tallest residential block in Europe and also houses the Hilton Manchester hotel on Deansgate, and stands at 551ft.

The notorious howl is caused by the glass and metal sculpture at the top of the building. When the wind rushes past the edge of the glass panes turbulence is created. This is very similar to how turbulence generates sound within a recorder.
