Sound like polymer cells. They were discusssed at length in the eighties, as a viable phase two to replace solid "speres" re-entry
attenuators. I was not aware that the technology was in service already, but that description sound familiar.
DIscussing the technology of weather modification is too volatile in these forums, but if you look around you will find many stories of alloy or
ceramic spheres appearing around the planet. In order to master the tactical advantages of Eastlund's work, it was speculated that the introduction
of attenuating composit re-entry vehicles in static rich revironments would dramatically improved accuracy and effectiveness, while reducing thes size
of the platform required to form vortecies. Polymer cells were proposed as a simple form of battery, made of 99% gas, and formed in zero gravity
environment. The idea was to optain the maximum area of coverage with the lowest material mass, for obvious reasons.
Of coure they could just be junk blown ashore, but the similarity in size to the hail that accompanies them is unlikely coincidental.
