This Strange Phenomenon In New Mexico Is Too Weird For Words

When you mention Taos, most people think of outdoor activities like skiing, the artists attracted to this Northern New Mexico town, or the beauty of its setting. But Taos has also been associated with a strange phenomenon: the Taos hum.

Since the early 1990s, some residents have complained about hearing a persistent and irritating noise. It was so disruptive that the affected group, who are termed “hearers,” urged politicians to launch an investigation.
