NASA's spooky Halloween playlist will give you the chills!

Jupiter’s moon Amalthea casts a shadow on the clouds of the gas giant

Just in time for Halloween, NASA's put together a compilation of elusive "sounds".

"Soaring to the depths of our universe, gallant spacecraft roam the cosmos, snapping images of celestial wonders", NASA wrote in the playlist's description. 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.

Nasa explains that these eerie space sounds were actually captured as radiowaves.

The macabre roaring and screeching sounds were captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft as it passed through the massive magnetic field. Sounds of Jupiter: Scientists sometimes translate radio signals into sound to better understand the signals.

When Juno entered Jupiter's orbit previous year, the planet's magnetic field collided with the solar wind (charged particles released by the sun). An audio picked by the spacecraft shows data from Galileo's Plasma Wave Experiment instrument.

NASA compares these electromagnetic waves to ocean surf-they create a "rhythmic cacophony" that has been recorded on several NASA missions.

The content of the spooky audio files comes from the radio emissions produced by planets, plasma waves, and a comet.

The eerie sound is similar to the emissions recorded on Earth during the aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere.

The 22-track list also features sounds from Earth's atmosphere, ultra-cold helium near the North Pole, and the spacecraft Cassini moving through Saturn's rings. This process is known as "data sonification".

These sounds range from high-pitched chorus of plasma waves, to trance-like radar echoes from the surface of Titan and some haunting whispers from Ganymede, Jupiter's largest moon. During its February 14, 2011, flyby of comet Tempel 1, an instrument on the protective shield on NASA's Stardust spacecraft was pelted by dust particles and small rocks, as can be heard in this audio track.
