Science is the poetry of Nature.

A man in Dorset, UK, was showered with tiny spheres of blue goo that rained down from the sky during a hailstorm last week. The tiny, one-inch gelatinous spheres are odorless, are not sticky, and are not meteorological, British authorities say. Basically, no one has any real clue what they are.

British meteorological authorities say they are not the result of some kind of weather event, though there is speculation that they could be “marine invertebrate eggs” that stuck to a bird’s feet and were carried into the air. Such eggs have been attributed to previous “strange goo” incidents, which apparently happen from time to time. In fact, according to the BBC, transmission of marine eggs via birds’ feet is something that is well documented.
