Unidentified Fluid Object Baffles Scots Boffins

BAFFLED hillwalkers fear ALIENS have landed — after mysterious slime started appearing in the countryside.

They have discovered a strange jelly... and some experts believe it’s landed from space.

The first report of an unidentified fluid object was in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh, triggering a flood of similar sightings.

Now National Geographic Channel documentary Wild X Files attempts to solve the mystery after they had the weird samples analysed by scientists.

Paranormal investigator Steve Mera is convinced he was dealing with aliens after a sample he collected DISAPPEARED.

He said: “I was dumbfounded. I had no idea what it was.




Well, this is a little disgusting.


I have no idea what I would do if I went outside and found this stuff. I think I would be afraid to touch it from 'Creepshow' as a kid and would be afraid of "meteor sh!t".

The fact that the stuff disappeared is fairly interesting me to me.


Algal researcher Dr Hans Sluiman found it “unlikely” that it was from a plant while Prof Malcolm Kennedy, from Glasgow University, believes the jelly is from frogs used for spawn.

He explained: “When it’s made it has DNA excluded from it. When frogs come under attack, fear causes them to expel the jelly normally used to protect eggs.”

The National Geographic Channel has declared the case closed but Euan said: “There’s still that bit at the back of my head that isn’t exactly convinced.”


This part was interesting as well, the fact that they are saying it is frog jelly...

Anyway, I thought I would share this story with all of you as I found it quite amusing, and hopefully you do too.

Any thoughts?

Not probably at all related, but sometimes on the island I find slime goo like that but smaller amounts,


if you swirl it around it lights up blue.

Experienced something similar up here in WA a few winters back. I was visiting a friend up near Seattle (Bellingham to be precise), and there was this slime gunk in random places around the city.


I didn't want to touch it because I didn't know what it was, and the main reason I didn't want to touch it was because the smell was extremely off putting. The closest thing I could think of that it smelled like was a portable bathroom or a dead animal...real nasty. To this day I have no idea what it could have been.

This slime/gunge has been reported on for some time.

Here is one from 2008.

That is interesting. Now i wish i had that stuff near me
so I could try stuff out. How bright can it get, how much to light a room
if in a jar could I shake it to glow? things like that

Maybe a UFO latrine dump (Oh! I didn't meant that pun!)
Who knows what their poop look like.

Seriously, a whole bunch of frogs over a large area got the "stuff" scared out of them all at the same time and this situation doesn't happen that often, we are to suppose?

I would trust the NG outfit about as much as I would trust any scientific outfit or scientifically-related outfit to tell us the truth that would destroy or betray the concensus reality they have carefully taught us about ...well, about everything. Remember not too many years ago when water was thought to be unique to Earth?

Take samples of it in a sealed container and have science analyze it.

Document it in case the government tries to do funky things to you.

If this were Ancient Greece, I suspect the stuff would be hailed as certain fluid ejections from insert randomly favored God name here, where with such fluids definitely creepy gross stuff might get got up to in hopes of spawning demigod children.

Good find

A few years ago I found strange green slime in the middle of my garden. Just on the grass in one area with no other plants around. Never did find out what caused it, I did ponder some type of discharge from a bird.

Nat geo did a documentary on it, blood rain and star jelly. Full documentary is on youtube.

I've had similar, but not as opaque. It was a deal more translucent and uniform in that manner than the Op's example and was caught in a metre high ornamental grass, and had actually displaced the grass a little at the point where it lay, so would have some measureable kind of weight. Definitely not cuckoo spit, and the grass was ultimately undamaged. It was slightly gooey, enough to hold itself together to some extent, most like the seeding gel in an above post, but more as a coherent, stretchy fluid. Again, definitely something novel. I 'noodled' it up on a stick, and threw it in a stream.

A possiblity alright, althought OP's picture looks like a splatter from above, and has displaced grime on the twig.

Looks more like someone picked it up with a stick. Another picture from the article:
