The story says that the spheres were around 3cm's in diameter........ so a decent Marble size in my opinion....

Interstellar seeds ??
Some strange chemical which has been saponified in the upper atmosphere with the current solar storm ??
Some crap off a plane ??


I have the book "The Complete Works of Charles Fort", a detailed investigation of some really messed up stuff happening all over the world in the past few hundred years...

A similar event happened in 1883..

Remember the fall of worms reported not too long ago? That's happened numerous times according to his work!

I was thinking of Charles Fort whilst reading the thread. Here is a link if anyone is interested in reading it. The Book of The Damned. All about strange phenomenon.

Someone must have had too many blue materia. I guess we can say it was elemental

Sorry, bad ff7 joke

After skimming through Mr Forts epic ......... !! I can safely say that he thinks anything from a Mince Pie or toad all the way through to red stuff or house bricks can fall at will 'out of the sky'......

I think i shall be wearing my hat tomorrow .... just in case ....

On the initial BBC page they have now put a video on there showing the broken spheres and the consistency of them......... The fact they appear non water soluble is strange although, as some have suggested, maybe they are the remains of a kids chemistry set or Orbittiz ??

Can you eat them?

I don't know why but I want to eat them.

Thank you for informing me about this book. I believe I am going to have to find it and read the thing. It sounds very interesting.

As for the blue balls, I am going to go with either the Orbeez thing or something relative, or some chemicals captured in the atmosphere. I believe the earth has ways to cleans itself from time to time.

Wasn't there a thread on here a few days ago talking about the Wind being a living creature ??

Maybe we dimissed it too quickly...maybe the wind, or atmosphere IS a living creature of a sort able to transport and / or create things which we dis-believe.....

just thinking out aloud before bed....

night all...

How very strange.... Though did I miss it or did it not say what size they were? Also he says they were hard to pick up but not why? Too small? Too slippery?

Interesting but would wish it was more detailed

OP said 3cm, maybe he didn't want to touch it, I probably would have used tongs or tweezers

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.

They look exactly like the planting beads you buy at the store for vaces. They hold moisture and keep the plant's roots hydrated so you don't have to water them as often. My son was given some by his OT for part of his therapy.
These silica gel beads are used in aviation as CO2 absorbers. I wonder if they're falling out of planes during flight?

Just my 2 cents.

I wonder, are these like the goo balls that fall on New Jersey? Those ones melt in the sun and stick to the sidewalk

Totally a possibility, lets not forget that they (The Royal Society) have untertaken
geoengineering experiments also, they refuse to reveal the locations.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but what about Viral Marketing for a crappy movie that isn't making, or made, any money?

I have these in my backyard!

My kid shoots me everywhere...

I bet he licked it, too

Great find S&F

Well, probably a simple explanation.

There was "star jelly" reported recently in Cumbria and all sorts of people got dead excited, stuck it in their fridges and started to worship it. Tests found it to be deer semen.


LOL Deer Semen falling from the sky..

THat's some funny S*&^T going on there.. Was this around Xmas time by any chance? If so, it could be explained, but I don't think Santa lets the deer out during the off season..

First it rains fish, then frogs, now spheres. Can it please rain women sometime soon?

I'm in Bournemouth and if they mean last night (Thurs) then we did'nt have any hail.
Clearest night in ages actually, was out looking at the stars.
Thinking about it though could have been last week, weather was worse then.
Oh... Why did'nt i get any blue balls?!

wishing for blue balls in any other story would raise an eyebrow. lol.

any ways this is weird to say the least and i am wondering if this is a sing for what is coming.

I was just going to say the same. They look gel hydration balls that you mix in with soil also to keep plant pots moist.
