NASA's Halloween playlist will 'make your skin crawl'

We can't hear these sounds in their raw form, so NASA has converted them into an audible format suitable for our ears-and the results are unsettling.

In the spirit of Halloween, NASA created an online playlist of seriously scary sounds recorded in outer space. The playlist uploaded on Soundcloud includes a bunch of assorted sounds from the space agency's several missions over the year such as Jupiter, Saturn, and other celestial bodies. 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. Space sounds are definitely spooky, but a busted speaker would be much more frightening.

According to Nasa's creepy space music playlist, the eeriest sounds appear to be coming from Jupiter and its various giant moons. 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.

Juno Captures the "Roar" of Jupiter: Juno is now orbiting Jupiter.

Now it should be pointed out that these are not the sounds directly recorded from space.

Saturn appeared to also produce a spooky version of Star Trek-like sound effects thanks to its source of intense radio emissions. It captured radio signals from the moon's magnetosphere - not from a classic episode of "The Twilight Zone" - using a Plasma Wave Experiment device. These auroras are similar to Earth's northern and southern lights.

In 2011, NASA's Stardust spacecraft flew by the Tempel 1 comet.

Whether or not these tracks become part of your holiday playlist, you'll definitely learn a thing or two.
