Hi.

The article has a date of August 21, 2012, they claim this happened the Sunday before so I guess that would have been August 19th.

www.bbc.co.uk...




Dylis Scott and her husband Tony were in their garage on Monica Road, Leicester, on Sunday when the balls fell from the sky during a storm. Mrs Scott said they started hitting the car and garage door and "shooting at me".





In January it was reported that 3cm diameter blue balls came raining down during a hailstorm in Bournemouth, Dorset.





On Sunday Mrs Scott said she had gone inside after she heard thunder while she was painting outside. "Suddenly all these little tiny, bright yellow balls came down with the rain, and they were hitting the car, hitting the garage door, and shooting at me," the 70-year-old said.


So they aren't sure what they were but according to the couple the balls dissolved in the rain which is interesting. here's a pic.....



Not sure I'd be holding them with my bare hand but maybe that's just me being paranoid.

So have you guys heard about this or know what these little balls are?

Is there any chance that the storm produced a funnel at some- point nearby that picked up these yellow balls from somewhere and its all just a crazy coincidence. I wonder what they are made of, the really do look plastic.

That's what I thought, something for a pellet gun. Would that type of ammo dissolve in the rain though? I thought the pellets were usually hard plastic or rubber.

Could be they were picked up by the storm I guess it happens.

That's what I was saying about touching them with my bare hand. I would want to know what it is before I started handling the stuff.

That's one of two things. Either ammo, or a horrific, brightly colored candy. The latter would explain dissolving in the rain.

Are there by chance any candy factories near the couple?

If you have a radioactive element in the air after an accident.....nuclear reactor....and that deadly radioactive element has a half life of say 48 hours. You would release pellets into the clouds containing the fallout and those pellets absorb the moisture in the air and turn into jelly balls...holding that hot particle for a day or two until the jelly ball deteriorates and natural decay takes over.


It appears those beads hit a cold spot which went to hail, and they failed to absorb moisture in the clouds to absorb the deadly hot particles (radioactive) they were intended for.

If you ever find these falling from the sky, put them in a freezer. And pray what was above you in the atmosphere blew away.

I call BS
Show me a pic of a partially dissolved ball, none of the ones in the photo are smaller.
Show me a pic of them on the ground outside at least.

Either some kid next door was firing an automatic airsoft into the sky or its a hoax by the photographer who took the photo.

IMHO

Look for the story about the gel balls falling in England. There's pictures in that thread here. Also....look up the story about the odd yellow floating into Alaska and covering everyone's homes, cars, trees. There's pictures in that thread here too.

I think it's called Tellerium 132, the short lived radioactive hot particle they are trying to catch with those balls and tie them up into the gel unto the half life expires. 48 hours I believe it is.
