Great balls of ice!



Quote
In 2001, 15 football-sized ice balls weighing up to four kg pelted southern Spain, damaging cars and buildings. since Then they have dropped elsewhere in the world. Scientists call them ‘megacryometeors’. Scientists are leaning towards the view they are a result of global warming. They are similar in make up to hail but mega in scale.

The megacryometeors also seem to be getting bigger with reports of ice blocks weighing more than 25kg crashing through house roofs

Falling Ice Perplexes Scientists
Theories abound after 2 chunks land in state in a week April 15, 2006


Quote
The skies are raining big chunks of ice, and experts ranging from scientists to federal investigators are scrambling to learn what's going on.

For the second time in a week, California was the victim of an aerial, icy assault, the latest being early Thursday when a chunk of ice the size of a microwave oven plunged out of a cloudless sky into the San Bernardino County town of Loma Linda. The ice punched through the metal roof of a recreation center, leaving a hole up to 2 1/2 feet wide, then fragmented into opaque, brilliant white chunks, one as big as a bowling ball. No one was hurt.

Two tennis players were batting a ball around outside the Drayson Center at Loma Linda University on Thursday morning when they heard a strange sound, said Rolland Crawford, Loma Linda Fire Department division chief.

"They described it as the sound an artillery shell would make -- shoosh, shoosh,'' he said. "They looked up. They didn't see the ice, nor did they see a plane.''

Falling ice perplexes scientists

Huge Block Of Ice Falls From Sky In Oakland - April 15, 2006



Quote
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Even the experts are having trouble explaining a solid block of ice that fell from the sky, crashed into earth and left behind a three-foot hole in the grass.

The ice fell at Bushrod Park in Oakland early Saturday when homeowner Jacek Purat of Berkeley was waiting nearby to show apartments to prospective renters.

"It was totally amazing. ... I saw this flash, like a streak. Then I saw this explosion, like a big boom! I came over and it (the field) was all covered with ice. Some were this big," Purat said, making a head-size circle with his two hands.

Brooks and Judith Mencher said they were standing on their back porch near the park when they heard a sound like a very loud rocket. "It kind of went 'whoosh!"' Brooks Mencher said.

The impact "knocked turf 20 feet away," according to Oakland Police Sgt. Ron Lighten. No one was injured.

Lt. Charles Glass of the Oakland Fire Hazardous Materials Team said the ice was pure water. "It didn't come from a toilet on a plane or anything like that."

Glass said the ice that firefighters pulled from the hole was about the same size of the hole -- three by three feet and two and a half feet deep.

More Goop - Jelly Like Substance



Quote
In 2009, a jelly rain fell in Scotland. Scientists commissioned by National Geographic carried out tests on, but they have so far failed to find any DNA in it. Theories for the origins of “star jelly” abound, one of the most plausible theories is that star jelly is regurgitated frog or toad ovaries, vomited by buzzards or herons as it is indigestible, others refer to the remnants of a meteor shower or even a fungus

'Jelly' mystery

BBC Scotland Outdoors has a bunch of Jelly finds that they do not think are slime molds


Steve Chambers found some mysterious 'jelly' while walking in the Pentland Hills. He asked BBC Radio Scotland Out of Doors to help identify the substance. A close up photo of Steve's find. There have been many suggestions as to what this could be, including frog spawn, 'star snot' remnants of recent meteorite showers, fungus and jellyfish.


Stewart Johnston found this on a track in Glencoe, while halfway up a Munro in 2007. He says that he doubts it was slime mould since it was on disturbed ground.


Many people, including Sarah Longrigg who sent this picture, suggested slime moulds as an explanation. An algae expert consulted by BBC Scotland was clear the sample he saw was not a plant-like organism.


Thelma and Trevor Bevis sent us a photo of jelly that has been appearing at the same place near their pond for several years. This photo was taken in January 2008.


They live close to Moffat in Dumfriesshire and are surrounded by farmland. The jelly appeared again in October 2008, although this time there were ''small black and white bead-like masses'' attached.

Red Rain
A rain of blood in Colombia




Quote
In 2008 a red rain that was certified by a local bacteriologist to be blood fell on a small community of La Sierra, Chocó. A sample was collected and taken to the nearest town, Bagadó, where it was analyzed. The priest of the hamlet says it's a sign from God that people will have to change their sinful ways.

Rain of Blood

Quote
The image of a rain of blood falling from the skies seems worthy of a horror movie, but the red rain is a meteorological phenomenon has been observed since ancient Roman times. Despite the horror expressed by those who have suffered the precipitation of red drops, these rains are not really made of blood. The reddish hue that occasionally make the raindrops due to dust or sand that is raised by high intensity winds, rising to mix with rain clouds and then precipitation of red dye. The red rain phenomenon is quite common in Europe due to dust in the clouds coming from the Saharan dust storms.

Red Rain
Mystery of the "Red Rains" in Japan
The Fresno Bee of Fresno (California), 11 October 1925



The "red rain" in Japan caused great consternation among the natives, who were terror-stricken by the strange phenomenon

Quote
WHEN a recent dispatch from Tokio brought news of the fall of a "red rain" in the interior of Japan—"a rain which appeared to partake of the nature of blood rather than that of water"—there were many who attributed the phenomenon either to the everwrought imagination of the natives or took it for granted that, in some way, red volcanic dust had become mixed with cloud moisture and the "red rain" had resulted.

But the investigations of a number of meteorologists and others who are interested in running down phenomena of this kind developed two facts very clearly. In the first place, the "red rain" had fallen. It was no figment of the imagination. Secondly, the "rain" was not of the ordinary consistency of water, but considerably thicker—a thick, viscous liquid, that clung and stuck, instead of running off in a solid stream.

There have been numbers of other cases in which "red rains" have fallen, and these are by no means the only unusual precipitations from the sky, for the list of "riddles" of this kind runs well up into the hundreds and embraces objects all the way from tiny globules of gelatinous matters to rocks and stones in a considerable size which have either rained down from a cloudless sky or have fallen in the midst of violent storms.

A cow that fell from the sky in Japan



Quote
In 1997 a Japanese fishing trawler was rescued in the Sea of Japan. They claimed that a cow fell out of the sky, struck the boat, causing it to sink. The crew members were immediately put in jail. About 2 weeks later the Russian Air Force informed the Japanese authorities that the crew of one of its cargo planes had stolen a cow thinking they would have beef for some time. Of course the cow was not fond of its close surroundings and began to thrash about. To save the aircraft and themselves, at about 30,000 feet, the crew shoved the animal out of the cargo hold as they were flying over the sea of Japan.

A cow that fell from the sky in Japan

Cow falls from sky, sinks boat

Quote
In 1997, the crew of a Japanese fishing boat was pulled from the Sea of Japan after clinging to the boat's wreckage for several hours.  They were immediately arrested, however, after authorities interrogated them about the boat's fate.  To a man, they claimed a cow had fallen from the sky, apparently coming from nowhere, and struck the boat amidships, resulting in a huge hole and its rapid sinking.

The crew remained in prison for several weeks until Japanese authorities were contacted by several highly embarrassed Russian air force officials.  It turned out that the crew of a Russian cargo plane had stolen a cow that wandered near their Siberian airfield and forced it onto their plane before they took off for a flight home.  Once airborne, the cow apparently panicked and starting rampaging through the cargo hold, causing the crew also to panic because it was affecting the plane's stability.  They solved the problem by shoving the cow out of the hold while crossing the Sea of Japan at 30,000 feet.

Unfortunately, following Rules 5 (Look-out), and 7 (Risk of collision) won't keep you out of trouble when the danger is airborne!

Multi-coloured snow falls over Siberia


In the Omsk region, about 1,400 miles east of Moscow, smelly orange, yellow and green snow fell in 2007

Quote
02/02/2007 - 08:47:58
Russian emergency workers have flown to a Siberian region where smelly orange, yellow and green snow fell.

The Emergency Situations Ministry said officials in the Omsk region, about 1,400 miles east of Moscow, had warned local residents not use the snow for drinking or other purposes, and to keep domestic animals from it.

The ministry said the snow, which fell on Wednesday afternoon, was yellow, green and orange and had an oily texture and unpleasant smell.

More than 27,000 people live in the area where the snow fell, but no health problems have yet been reported, the ministry said.

RIA-Novosti quoted an emergency official in the adjacent region of Tyumen, west of Omsk, as saying coloured snow had fallen there as well.

Orange Snow in Omsk, Russia - Feb 2, 2007



Quote
Yesterday a strange phenomena happened in Omsk region Russia. Pretty vast territory of Omsk region was covered with a snow that had an unusual color. It was orange. Now we have a few photos, mainly screenshots from Russian TV channels. There is still no one exact explanation about the origin of orange color of this snow.

More high quality photos of the Martian like snowy terrain would follow shortly. According to Russian officials the orange snow doesn’t contain any chemical byproducts or any other elements dangerous to human.

Mystery as greenish-yellow goo falls from the sky in New York
21st January 2011



Goo-ross! Snow with a strange greenish-yellow cast to it is seen piled outside the door of a home in Snyder, New York


Mellow yellow: Unnaturally coloured icicles hang from the roof of another house. The FAA has ruled out 'blue ice' - frozen human excrement falling from passing airplanes


Have a nice drip: More strangely-coloured goo - but where did it come from?


'm not lovin' it: One woman has theorised that the goo could be from birds eating fast food litter - such as leftover McDonald's French fries


For the birds: Ornithologists at Cornell agree the goo could be bird droppings... but scientists are still doing tests

Seems that this has happened before, and now it has been posed it may be a form of et life, which fell from space....
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8-dR9bZ13E&feature=plcp[youtube]
I thougt it fit in good with the earlier thread about the NASA lawsuit, as it could be similar to the same type of life they encountered in the atmosphere.
Cheers!

 Strange Red Rain Falls in India (13th July 2012)

[youtube]P8-dR9bZ13E[/youtube]


Weird red rain in India panics people . . . ‘blood red’ rain falls (Photos)

Quote
*  From July 25 to September 23, 2001, this mysterious "blood red rain" sporadically fell in heavy downpours in Kerala.
 *  In summer of 2006, the mysterious red rains fell a second time and gained widespread attention.



Godfrey Louis, Ph.D. and Santosh Kumar hypothesize, "The red cells found in the red rain in Kerala are considered as a possible case of extraterrestrial life form."

Quote
Two scientists, Godfrey Louis, Ph.D. and Santhosh Kumar of the Mahatma Gandhi University in Kottayam, proposed a controversial hypothesis, "The mysterious red color in the rain is caused by unidentified life form that does not have DNA."

In August 2008, they presented their case at an astrobiology conference:

    "The red cells found in the red rain in Kerala, India are now considered as a possible case of extraterrestrial life form. The molecular composition of these cells is yet to be identified."

However, Louis and Kumar have not yet been explained how dust from a meteor could continue to fall over the same area - despite changing climatic conditions and wind patterns - for not only a couple of months, but for more than a decade.

Mysterious, purple spheres found in the desert

Quote
Reporter: Liz Kotalik  Jan. 30, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN-9) - It was a normal Sunday in Vail for Geradine Vargas. Normal, until she and her husband stumbled upon something kind of weird.

"We were taking photos around the area and we just.... I mean, how could you miss this?" Geradine said. "It was just like glittering in the sun."

Thousands of tiny, purple-hued spheres piled in the middle of nowhere.

"It's just one of those things that you've never seen before."

They were watery, some where translucent, and the pile was completely isolated. Gerardine was amazed, and she wanted answers.

"We did email a friend of ours who's a zoologist, but she didn't know.  I mean, she didn't seem to recognize what it was."

So, she sent KGUN-9 pictures of the spheres, hoping we could find some answers.

We checked out the mysterious spheres for ourselves, and learned they were still there. They're like gooey marbles that ooze out a water substance when squished.  They roll, they shine, and they're out of this world.

Geradine was dying to know what they were, and so were we

Quote
We spoke to Darlene Buhrow, director of marketing at Tucson Botanical Gardens, who's husband is a botanist. He said if these are something naturally occurring, they could be a slime mold or jelly fungus.

We've received tons of calls into the newsroom tonight from viewers who think they are a product like Deco Beads, which are tiny, colored, water-filled spheres that keep plants hydrated.

But thousands of them? In the middle of the desert?

No one is positive what these spheres are, and for now, all we can say for certain is that they're definitely out of the ordinary.

Star jellyFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search “Star jelly” (also called astromyxin, astral jelly, pwdr sêr, star rot, or star shot) is a gelatinous substance that, according to folklore, is deposited on the earth during meteor showers.[1][2] Today, it is generally believed to be nostoc.

Star jelly is described as a translucent or grayish-white gelatin that tends to evaporate shortly after having “fallen.”[3] Explanations have ranged from the material's being the remains of frogs, toads, or worms, to the byproducts of cyanobacteria, to the paranormal.[2][4][5][6]

Reports of the substance date back to the 14th century and have continued to the present day.[6][7]

HistoryThere have been reports of pwdr sêr (also pwdre sêr or pydredd sêr, Welsh for 'star-rot') for centuries.[8] John of Gaddesden (1280–1361),[9] for example, mentions stella terrae (Latin for 'star of the earth' or 'earth-star') in his medical writings, describing it as "a certain mucilaginous substance lying upon the earth" and suggesting that it might be used to treat abscesses.[7] A fourteenth-century Latin medical glossary has an entry for uligo, described as "a certain fatty substance emitted from the earth, that is commonly called 'a star which has fallen'".[10] Similarly, an English-Latin dictionary from around 1440 has an entry for 'sterre slyme' with the Latin equivalent given as assub (a rendering of Arabic ash-shuhub, also used in medieval Latin as a term for a 'falling' or 'shooting' star).[11]

The Oxford English Dictionary lists a large number of other names for the substance, with references dating back to the circa-1440 English-Latin dictionary entry mentioned above: star-fallen, star-falling, star-jelly, star-shot, star-slime, star-slough, star-slubber, and star-slutch.[12]

The slime mold Enteridium lycoperdon is called "caca de luna" (Moon’s excrement) by the locals in the state of Veracruz in Mexico.[13]

Actually, scientific evidence from various top sources supports the possibility of star jelly being biological and extraterrestrial in origin, e.g. the research currently being done at cardiff university wales. even skeptical biologists in the know have to admit that this is not something to be dismissed.
