Hello ATS, Where do you think Angel Hair originates?

Some Angel hair events
Venice flourance italy, on October 27, 1954
marysville, ohio on october 22, 1954
September 13 1917 Fatima in Portugal
Oloron and Gaillac, France in 1952
Portuguese city of Évora on November 2, 1959
Eastbourne, UK in 2012
Nov 2 2010, Gatineau, QC
Pine, Arizona, November, 2010

It is interesting that in multiple cases, widespread in time and location, the same elements were detected: silicon, calcium, magnesium, and boron. Angel hair has been called borosilicate glass due to these constituents the substance was so advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind, a vegetable product, not animal. slightly radioactive in a few cases. For instance, on February 21, 1955, white, fibrous angel hair covered a half-square mile in Horseheads, New York. Atomic Energy Commissions new york office doubted that the radioactivity came from friday's test shot in Nevada. Largest wave of reported angel hair was in 1954 between october and november.

Calcium, Magnesium, Silica and Boron.Their Combined Roles in Maintaining Bone Strength.

Other elements found in angel hair include potassium, silicon, calcium, phosphorus, aluminum, oxygen, chlorine, iron, sulfur, manganese potassium, sodium, zinc, lanthanum, cesium, and tritium. The tritium content is particularly interesting. It was found in an angel hair sample recovered in Sonora, California, on October 12. 1976. Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, and is rare in nature. Tritium gas is used to boost the yield of nuclear warheads; to obtain tritium in any appreciable amount it must be man-made in nuclear reactors or particle accelerators.

Overall it seems that tritium and radiation content in angel hair cases is probably from nuclear testing.

In 1477, in Japan, white cotton-like material fell for 6 hours after a luminous object crossed the sky
In 1596, in Japan, a greath earthquake struck the Kyoto area at night and strange white hair fell over the region.
In 1702, once again in Japan, at high noon the sun changed colour to a blood-like red and strings of a substance similar to white cotton fell to the ground.
In 1945, in the US, a man was hunting when he saw a UFO land in a clearing in the woods. The craft then emitted a humming sound, began revolving and ascended vertically. As it disappeared it discharged a shower of silvery thread-like material.
In 1952, in France, 'saucers' were seen travelling in pairs in a 'zig-zag' motion. These objects left long trails which drifted down and covered trees, telephone wires and houses.
In 1954, in France, a mysterious explosion was heard, enough to make the roof tiles on houses shake. A few minutes later, white strands fell on the countryside, which evaporated when people touched them.
Also in 1954 in France (on Oct 13th no less), a witness reported seeing a huge white disk moving at tremendous speed. Suddenly it exploded in full flight, and a smaller silver object seemed to spurt from the explosion and continued on a southward trajectory. The remnants of the disk fell gently like shredded paper.
In 1968 in Canada, a farmer saw three football-shaped objects. Two of the UFOs appeared to be connecte by a "long, white arc or loop" which appeared to fraying, with the third object separate. Afterwards, long white filaments fell upon the farm.
In 1971, in Australia, silvery-white globes were reported. Many appeared to be 'double' with a joining thread or cord, moving around each other. The objects were seen moving in separate directions, and also changing direction suddenly (which seems to argue against the wind as the propellant). Pieces of 'fairy floss' were found on the ground, which melted when touched.
In 1998, at Quirindi in Australia, a 61-year-old said she saw cobwebs falling from the sky. On looking up, she saw some twenty silver orbs, which continued floating around the sky for another hour and a half. When she tried to pick up the substance, it disintegrated in her hand.
In 2000, residents of two north-Italian towns reported an unusually loud boom, followed by a shower of "long sheer white filaments drifting down from the sky."

magnesium diboride allow it to conduct electricity similar to isoelectronic graphite. In addition, in 2001 this material was found to be a high-temperature superconductor

boron used as radioactive shield. Li and B appear as potential spacecraft structural materials which serve both for mechanical reinforcement and radiation protection. Depleted boron is also a candidate as a fuel for aneutronic fusion.

angel hair goes from solid to gas. Skipping liquid state. literally vanished as the sunlight hit them.

angel hair has been reported to taste salty. I do not recommend tasting angel hair. Cotton candy has common wispy filaments that solidify on contact with air

Magnesium hydroxide forms in the presence of water (MgO + H2O → Mg(OH)2), but it can be reversed by heating it to separate moisture.

Due to magnesium ion's high solubility in water, it is the third most abundant element dissolved in seawater.

As a technique, passivating is the use of light coat of material such as metal oxide to create a shell against corrosion. Passivation of corrosion resistant steels. AMS specs are frequently used in the aerospace industry

In air, almost all metals form a hard, relatively inert surface naturally. The reduction of the corrosive rate will vary individually in various shells, but is most notably pronounced in aluminium, zinc, titanium, and silicon (a metalloid.)

ingredients are the same to create a shell on aircraft that is called passivation for corrosion. The aircraft shell inhibits deeper corrosion.

A silica-based aerogel was used in the Stardust spacecraft to collect extraterrestrial particles.

Stardust was a 300-kilogram robotic space probe launched by NASA on February 7, 1999. Its primary mission was to collect dust samples from a comet.

Glass sponges present a distinctive variation on this basic plan. Their spicules, which are made of silica, form a scaffolding-like framework between whose rods the living tissue is suspended like a cobweb that contains most of the cell types. The motion of the flagella sucks water through passages in the "cobweb" and expels it via the open ends of the bell-shaped chambers.

Ingredients are the same as what could be found in seas.

All sponges are sessile aquatic animals. Although there are freshwater species, the great majority are marine (salt water) species, ranging from tidal zones to depths exceeding 8,800 m (5.5 mi).

fresh water have Gemmules that are internal buds found in sponges that are the result of asexual reproduction, and are a response to a hostile environment.They are resistant to desiccation (drying out), freezing, and anoxia (lack of oxygen) and can lie around for long periods of time.

Helium harvested comes from beneath the ground being extracted from minerals or tapped gas deposits.

In my opinion Angel Hair originates from possibly near natural gas deposits in deep ocean and sea floors and is a large underwater medusoid (bell- or saucer-shaped) entity like a sponge that floats in the air when it absorbs enough helium and the Angel Hair filaments are a form of its asexual reproduction.

armed forces technicians and scientists of the University of Lisbon. Conclusions were not possible although it was formed, apparently, by a small organism featuring 10 'arms' stretching from a central core. angel hair could be a single-celled organism of some kind

sponge (animal) stolons (rootlike extensions) Fungi spread by means of horizontal filaments (hyphae) that have a glass or crystal like high refractive appearance. hyaline term usage denotes a type of colorless, transparent substance.

Glass sponges or hexactinellids are relatively uncommon and are mostly found at depths from 450 to 900 metres (1,480 to 3,000 ft) although the species Oopsacas minuta has been found in shallow water, while others have been found much deeper. They are found in all oceans of the world, although they are particularly common in Antarctic waters. For fun look up glass sponge shrimp. Their tissues contain glass-like structural particles made of silica. Which is the same material to make glass. Helium is a protective gas found in growing silicon and germanium crystals. The many tiny siliceous elements of a glass sponge’s skeleton are called “spicules.” Unlike most sponges, glass sponges produce extremely large spicules that fuse together in beautiful patterns to form a “glass house”

Spongillidae sponge gemmules allow a species to survive unfavourable conditions in a state in which vital activities are almost completely suspended. In cold regions, gemmulation occurs in winter, and the inactive gemmules are said to hibernate; in warm regions, gemmulation occurs in summer, and the gemmules are said to estivate. Gemmulation can occur in the fall.

Hyphae are described as "gloeoplerous" ("gloeohyphae") if their high refractive index gives them an oily or granular appearance under the microscope. These cells may be yellowish or clear (hyaline).

sponges in that a spermatozoan, after its release from a sponge, is carried by the water current until it is captured by a specialized flagellated cell called a choanocyte, or collar cell, in another sponge. The choanocyte then transforms into an amoeba-shaped cell called a carrier cell, which gives up the spermatozoan to an egg, lying near a chamber formed by choanocytes and containing long lashlike appendages called flagella

strands disappear in light so they come from a dark place.

A 100-foot-diameter balloon full of helium can lift 33,000 pounds!
However, it is highly flammable, so the slightest spark can cause a huge explosion.

isotopic dating by helium ratios (seawater, ocean beds,etc)
Helium has the lowest melting and boiling points. It exists as a gas except under extreme conditions. At temperatures close to absolute zero, helium is a fluid; most materials are solid when cooled to such low temperatures.

The first is He that is released from volcanic or hydrothermal activity on or near the sea floor. This helium is generally has a higher 3He/4He than atmospheric He, often approaching 10 X the atmospheric ratio, and sometimes as high as 30 X or more. The signature of this volcanic helium is observable over many thousands of km in the abyssal Pacific.

helium is used on equipment easily contaminated by air,

"If we get lucky," james Cameron said before the dive, "we should find something like a cold seep, where we might find tube worms." Cold seeps are regions of the ocean floor somewhat like hydrothermal vents (video) that ooze fluid chemicals at the same temperature as the surrounding water.

have some nice clean samples of sponge spicules in distilled water. At this point, you might want to know whether your spicules are calcareous or siliceous. A very simple test will tell you. Put some on a slide, add a drop of 10% Hydrochloric acid and if it starts bubbling and the spicules are dissolving, then they’re calcareous; if the solution doesn’t bubble, then it’s either siliceous or a very complex protein which is not much affected by ordinary caustics or acids, but the likelihood is that it’s siliceous. [CAUTION: When using acids or alkalis on a slide which you are observing, be sure to have sufficient ventilation so that the vapors do not attack the lens.] Why does it make a difference whether the spicules are calcareous or siliceous? It matters because, if you want to make permanent slides, it may very well affect the type of mounting medium you select. It is a matter of refractive index and pH. Remember that siliceous spicules are essentially glass so, if you mount them in a medium that has a refractive index of 1.515, then they effectively disappear; they become invisible.

If I read you right the UFOs that drop angel hairs may be floating sea sponges who have sufficient helium collected within them to rise out of the water to propagate???

Some of the "angel hairs" you posted (youtube) are nothing more than spiders who use their web as a means of travel. It's even noted in the youtube description.

There are some extremely weird cases though, like the one where a family notices a "fishing line" over their house. Police, firemen etc. come and look at it but are all perplexed. Wish I had a link to share on that one.

i think it is not exactly sea sponges but it may be similar in composition but on a much larger scale. It could be medusoid (bell- or saucer-shaped) entity that is yet to be discovered

My mistake about the youtube links being spider webs and not angel hair events. I am not sure if there are actual video recording of angel hair events
