Interesting Thread! I am going to go with an askomycetes or slime mold/protista. Cyanobacteria
is a type of Diazatroph. Diazatrophs are bacteria that have the ability to Fix Nitrogen. I have seen these
"Jellies" before. Here is a little theory : Bacteria and Fungi spores exist in our atmosphere and upper
atmosphere. When a Meterorite passes through, it is possible that some reaction occurs that results in
the bacteria/Spores to fall to the ground. At which time, they proliferate resulting in the Jelly. I am wondering if
Heat/ Electrical discharge plays a role in softening up the "Shell" of a spore allowing it to germinate quickly.
Similar to The Douglas Fir Tree Pine Cone Seeds that only germinate after exposed to forest fire.
Just a Hypothesis. A wild idea would be that the "Meteor" actually has spores on it that are released as
the object disintegrates. Again, these spores would fall to the ground and germinate.
Thanks for Sharing the article. S&F
