A Halloween treat from NASA: eerie sounds from outer space

Radio emissions converted into sound waves from missions to Jupiter, Saturn and other deep space locations in the solar system made it onto the playlist. "When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear", Nasa says on its website. NASA has compiled a Sound- Cloud playlist of creepy sounds from space that are sure to send a shiver up your spine. NASA spacecraft also recorded the popping and crackling of being "pelted by dust particles and small rocks" while flying by a comet, the reverberating tones of crossing Jupiter's bow shock, the static fog of the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan, and more. Halloween or Hallowe'en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.

The sounds are spooky, but that's not all that makes them worthy of a listen.

Although space lacks a proper medium that would allow sound waves to travel, meaning nobody can actually hear your screams, it is, however, neither "empty" or "silent". From howling planets, whistling winds, and sounds of sonic booms to something right out of the Alien: Covenant movie, space certain can sound just as eerie as ever.

When Juno entered Jupiter's orbit previous year, the planet's magnetic field collided with the solar wind (charged particles released by the sun). These emissions are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet, according to the statement.

"Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions, which were monitored by the Cassini spacecraft", NASA said.

Another clip on the celestial soundtrack, "Beware of Jupiter's Largest Moon, Ganymede", was created from NASA's spacecraft, Galileo, making the first flyby of the planet's moon in 1996.
