Copenhagen urban night sounds. Meteorite sound bonus.

This is a field recording from Copenhagen Saturday evening and night of February 6th 2016.
It is really just hours of monotonous and endless street noise of passing cars and other sounds of the breathing city.

For every 15 minutes you can hear the Town hall bell strike from its high tower about 6 km away. It stops after midnight, but it is surprising how clear those bells cut through.

By incredible coincidence I was lucky to capture the sound of a meteorite falling though the sky. Fragments of meteorite were afterwards found in Ejby and Herlev, some 15 Km away (link). So watch out for a deep boom – somewhat like faint thunder – at about 22:08 in the second clip.

Headphones highly recommended.
