Over the years, NASA has recorded all kinds of sounds from outer space with its various probes and orbiters, and some of it is downright freaky.

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: NASA's Juno spacecraft has crossed the boundary of Jupiter's vast magnetic field. "When scientists convert these to sound waves, the results are eerie to hear".

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

Here's a roundup of some of the coolest audio.

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: Juno is now orbiting Jupiter. A personal favorite is track number 17, "Radar Echos from Titan's Surface", which sounds like a cross between an 8-bit arcade game and a dirt bike. The soundtracks come from celestial bodies including Jupiter and Saturn, as well as many different types of stars. That process allows researchers to discover what weather phenomena like lightning sounds like on Jupiter.

Now it should be pointed out that these are not the sounds directly recorded from space. It captured radio signals from the moon's magnetosphere - not from a classic episode of "The Twilight Zone" - using a Plasma Wave Experiment device.

NASA even managed to capture radio waves closer to home, from the Earth's own atmosphere, that remarkably sound like birds chirping in a rainforest.

Saturn appeared to also produce a spooky version of Star Trek-like sound effects thanks to its source of intense radio emissions. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights. In fact, the sounds were produced as Stardust, a NASA spacecraft, was hit by multiple particles of dust as the comet passed by it.
