The earliest flesh fall documented in California occurred in the summer of 1850 at a military outpost in Benicia,
On 20 July 1851, pieces of flesh fell from a clear sky upon the military post at Benicia. Some of the soldiers were struck by the falling meat – including Major Robert Allen of the 2nd Infantry Regiment, the Assistant Quartermaster in charge of the Division Depot. The strange shower, which lasted nearly three minutes, scattered pieces of meat of various shapes and sizes over an area of ground 900ft long by 400ft wide (275 x 120m), or approximately five acres (2ha). The only weather of note was a strong westerly breeze, but no whirlwinds.
