Other strange things from the sky............ check out no 4...........
1.Honduran Festival of the Rain of Fishes
Of all the odd things that fall from the sky, fish are the most common. There have been countless fish rains for centuries, In fact, since 1998, in
Yoro, Honduras they have held a festival to celebrate the annual fish rains called, appropriately, The Festival of the Rain of Fishes. The local TV
station says it has been occurring twice a year lately. A National Geographic investigation determined that the fish are a blind, cave-dwelling fresh
water species and their origins are a mystery. Witnesses say the fish rain is preceded by dark clouds, a thunderstorm and heavy rain. When the rain
ends, there are thousands of 6- to 8-inch fish flopping around on the ground and the locals pick them up and cook them. During the rainy-fish season
the locals set up frying stations and pass out fresh cooked fish as part of the celebration. Some attribute the event to a Catholic missionary, Father
Jose Manuel Subirani and they call it a miracle. Apparently, he visited the town in 1854 and finding little food, prayed to God for sustenance for the
people. It is said the first fish rain occurred immediately after and continues every year around the same time.
2.Tadpoles and Frogs
In May of 1981, the Greek Meteorological Institute found itself questioning its’ logical powers when small frogs fell on the city of Naphlion in
Southern Greece. The best reason they could give for the frog-fall was that a very strong wind had picked up the frogs in their native North Africa
and deposited them several hundred miles away in Greece.
More recently, a rain of small minnows and tadpoles fell in Japan’s Ishikawa Prefecture on June 4th 2009. Theories include migrating pelicans
regurgitating as they flew high over the area.
The most popular theory for their appearance is that water spouts or small tornados suck a school of minnows high into the atmosphere and deposit it
many miles away from it’s natural origin. However, this does not account for why there is usually only one species involved and no rain of pond
plants or beer cans. Another, more offbeat theory contends that there are clouds of oceans which defy the laws of physics, floating around the sky or
in a parallel dimension which deposit their contents when a breach in the dimensional barrier occurs, like a wormhole to another dimension, or a fish
hole if you will.
An inter-dimensional fish hole seems to be the only plausible answer why Kim Ho, a Korean fisherman was knocked unconscious by a frozen squid falling
from the sky while fishing near the Falkland Islands in 1997. Unfortunately for him, he was unconscious for two days and suffered brain damage. His
ship mates denied having any frozen squid onboard at the time or having a grudge against him for winning a poker match the night before.
On April 6, 2007, a rain of spiders was captured in photos by Argentine photographer, Christian Oneto Gaona. He was climbing San Bernardo Peak in
Argentina’s Salta Province with friends when they noticed the ground covered with spiders. Looking up, they noticed the spiders falling from the
sky. He snapped a few pictures to prove his point and then probably ran off swatting and screaming like a little girl.
In India’s Kerala province, they had a red rain in July 2001. While many saw it as an occult and demonic sign, others saw it as a chance to dye all
their clothes red. Investigators revealed that the rain had been coloured by fungal spores but there was no explanation as to how these spores got
into the rain clouds. Again, the best scientific minds in the area attribute the fungal spores’ altitude to powerful updrafts which carry them high
into the atmosphere, but how they became so plentiful to color the rain remains a mystery.
6.Star Jelly or Star Snot
Another anomaly in the annals of falling objects is the jelly rain which fell on the moors of Scotland in 2009 and in a town in Tasmania in 1996. DNA
results were inconclusive, but reports have it being like jelly, with no cellular structure. Many experts from the UK investigated and were unable to
determine it’s origin. It seems to have been accompanied by a meteor shower and theories abound, from fallout from meteors to alien waste materials
or undigested frog spawn regurgitated by birds. In Tasmania, the entire town appeared to be covered in jelly. They refer to this episode in the
town’s history as Slime Day. Every June 17th locals get drunk and throw jelly at each other in a local bar renamed Slimey’s in honour of the
event. Coincidentally, the Scottish moors-men have started the same tradition of getting drunk and throwing jelly at each other, but, since it
hasn’t been a year since the jelly fell, there has only been a weekly event to celebrate so they do it every Thursday. They anticipate the one year
anniversary to be a real blow-out.
