    I don't recall ever trying a mystery sound competition. So, in the fashion of other competitions, whoever can name the source of the sound picks out the next mystery. The imagery in this video is irrelevant and not intended as a clue or a false lead.

    Too hard? No interest? Need a clue?

    Am I hearing a bandpass filter being used to alter the sound?

    No doubt there is an astronomical degree of filtering involved.

    That made it rather easy to find:

    However, I don't have any idea how to come up with an equally interesting sound.

    I was searching on "sounds of space" when trying to figure this out but found this instead:

    That was unusual but doesn't have to be definitive of the entries. However, if you wish to pass, maybe dlgoff can give it a go in your place? Your choice.

    Too hard? Try listing to it at a slower speed. Not the best fidelity though.

    Nope. Maybe a hint?

    Only if someone else asks for one. I'd like to ponder this a bit more first.

    Correction: I do have a couple of questions. Is this played in real time? And, would it normally repeat where the audio ends?

    I'm not sure about the .wav speed being the real time speed but it could be.

    No repeat. It's just one event.
