This appears similar to what was shown in the Unsolved Mystery episdode about the strange goo-rain that fell from the sky in Oregon in 1994, which
followed many of the town getting sick. My guess is this was similar to what could have fallen on places such as Ukraine before sickness came to those
On her homepage are a number of other photographs as well as video of the goo's aftermath
Want to watch if reports of "swine flu" lung issues now start to appear in this country in the next week or so
This is my firs thread posting, so not sure how to post photographs or link to the relevent source pages properly-
working on learning how to do that for the future
I saw it too on her blog yesterday. Strange looking white flakes of some sort, but not the kind that melts. Could be very polluted rain that leaves
some foamy traces. In any case not something healthy...
No, it isn't fall out of sand storm. It look like white or semitransparent phlegm.
EDIT to add: there is easy way how to test this. Take specimen, dry it at room temperature and then slowly heat it up. If it is organic then it should
burn (change color to brown or black). If it is inorganic (i.e. sand) then it will not change color and you will end with fine white/yellow powder.
Also examination with microscope is at place. I think every elementary school have one (we had many during communist era at our school). If you will
find granular structure, then it maybe sand. If you find threads, then its probably some organic material.
sounds weird, we have sand rain some times, but not often, i would say though if anyone is going to examine it, do so with caution, in case it is
toxic, i would wear a face mask and rubber cloves, you can get both in most pharmacy shops, Just be careful.
