(comment about next video:)
My friend and I encountered this for the first time yesterday at a big frozen pond in the Adirondacks and this is the video that comes closest to what we heard there! We were mesmerized! What causes this wonderful noise-the water moving below and the ice constantly shifting and changing? I tried to get some´╗┐ video for the sound, but all I could hear was the wind blowing in the camera mic! Thanks for the awesome video.

  • Used to hear this all the time at the cottage. The colder it got the more sounds you would hear. Some nights it sounded like the lake was moaning and others you would have though a submarine was coming through it.

  • It's the sound of ice cracking and shifting on the lake, especially if the wind is pushing the ice at all or if water is still freezing and expanding.

  • I was born there. Hence the name. Its the flow of the water underneath the ice...the rising temperature. Lots of things.

  • My lake house was so near the edge of a large lake that we could both hear and feel the ice cracking. Pretty eerie at night.

  • Where I live in Madison (an isthmus) there is lakes al around, and it being wisconsin, the lakes freezes and thaws. Anyone who doesn't believe that is the sound, needs to come out ice fishing with me

  • Why it is cracking? How about the tide? Or a current dragging the ice? The sound is cool. When the ice is thin, my friends and I used to throw ice out on it and listen to the sound. It's really cool when it glides along and keeps making the sound. And if the piece of ice cracks and there are multiple bits going at the same time, that's cool too. It quality of the sound is the echo. You get similar sounds from throwing rocks on lengths of railroad track when it's just sitting there unused.

  • I've heard this as well, many times. I used to ice fish on a man made reservoir that was used for a water supply. As the water was used over the winter, the level of the lake dropped, causing the ice to shift, move, crack, and drop. It's a bit spooky to be out on the lake in the dark...and have the ice you are on drop a couple of inches without warning!
