Well I don't know how else to describe it. Myself and a Co-Worker were just outside a few moments ago, and we where both trying to understand what this is that's falling from the sky. It simply looks like Glitter, its a Partly cloudy and the forecast shows that it suppose to rain later on. but this is not Rain or snow, although its falling at a slow speed as snow would do. I apologize for not giving a better description, i cant seem to find the words.

Is their anyone else in the area of Central Mass that can confirm this?

I suspect its mist that froze in the upper atmosphere. So what you are seeing are tiny flecks of ice acting as prisms reflecting the light, to look like glitter.

That sounds like a good explanation, but it seems fairly warm for that, we have a thermometer outside that is currently reading 44 Degrees.

Does it disappear once it lands?
Could you provide a picture?

Doesn't sound like anything I've seen before.

I live next to a steel mill, and now and then we get whats called "KISH" fallout a byproduct due to the processes involved. small carabon flakes that are iridescent in colour.

Heres what we experienced.

Snow does, in fact, glitter. Often enough.

its not coming down in any significant quantity that we can locate it on the ground. as-well it is not showing up on my phones camera.

The Frozen water particles might be the answer here. but it just seems way to warm for that, and the sun is out right now as well. Half my office is outside right now looking at it... lol

I've seen this exact thing! About 8 months ago I think, it was a really foggy morning, then later in the morning the sun came out and the fog cleared but the sky was still overcast and it "rained glitter". A coworker took a piece of paper outside to try to catch some, but nothing appeared on the paper. But I also remember that ALL DAY my nose ran constantly for at least an hour after being outside. WIERD

Interesting.. it lasted about 2-3 hours before it stopped, but its funny you mentioned your nose running after. my did the same all yesterday after that and some this morning.

It's just radioactive ash, nothing to get exited about.
Just kidding, maybe someone is actually dumping glitter off a building as a joke.

I'm in Northern Mass, but I don't see it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but despite the fact that heat rises in your house, isn't higher up in the atmosphere significantly colder?

That might explain why it doesn't seem cold enough for the ice.

Just because it's above freezing at ground level doesn't mean it isn't sub-freezing just a few thousand (or hundred) feet up.

So ice it likely is...

in Vermont the other morning it was super foggy and when the fog started burning off I noticed the fluttering crystal flakes and at first thought snow and realized it was a blue sky over the fog so it must've been the fog freezing. that or chemtrails lol
