Flying Jellyfish? Snotballs from the Stratosphere?

Quick and fascinating update related to the UFO post:
Britain Releases UFO Files
But get 'em quick, they are only available for a month!

Today's creatures are the "flying jellies," mysterious creatures reported in the sky. They are also the "explanation" behind the rain of jelly that sometimes occurs in places (not unlike the rains of frogs and fish that sometimes occur), and the bits of jelly sometimes found in locations in the early morning and later dissolve in the sun.

Hmm. Maybe all those blackbirds that fell dead from the sky a few months ago ran into a flock of migrating sky-jellies? No reports of flowers growing (a la the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"), thank goodness.

10 Craziest Things To Fall From the Sky


  1. Lol, I know, it's a strange, strange world!

    While I don't buy the "creatures in the sky" theory, I do wonder what the explanation is behind the "star jelly." I certainly never want to be around anyplace where it falls. If you haven't seen the pictures, it really does look like a giant sneezed. Bleh!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting! :)
