It’s not really something paranormal but it’s certainly interesting. Detected in 1997 by US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), The Bloop is an ultra-low frequency and powerful underwater noise. The sound seems consistent with the types of noises generated by icequakes, or large icebergs scraping the bottom of the ocean floor.

NOAA’s Dr Christopher Fox did  not feel that this was man-made, like a submarine, but there was speculation about how it could sound like a living creature. It was however louder than any living creature recorded and has now pretty much been identified as the icequake/scraping noise on the floor.

The Bloop has been used in popular culture too, in The Loch by Steve Allen the Bloop is used to describe the presence of the Loch Ness Monster.

One of the writers favourite suggestions is that it’s rough point of origin is that around the area suggested by H P Lovecraft as to where R’lyeh is situation. Cthulhu may have turned over in his sleep.
