FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- A Pacific University professor is tracking that mysterious, high pitch noise heard all around Forest Grove, and he’s hoping you can help him solve the mystery.
Dr. Andrew Dawes teaches physics at Pacific University. He has some ideas on what could create a sound like the one ringing through the area, but he’s not certain of the source. That led him to create a public Google Map pin pointing when and where people heard the sound. He had about thirty pins by Friday and hopes more pins will help him identify patterns.
“I didn't necessarily want it to be my project, it's something anyone can help work on,” said Dawes. “If they're interested in solving the mystery, let's do it!”
Dawes encourages people to log on, export data and do their own analysis of where the sound could be coming from.
