One resident in Bournemouth, UK got quite an interesting surprise the other day in the middle of a rain storm that was right over his home.
Instead of the usual rain or hail, he had about a dozen mysterious marble-size blue spheres fall into his garden.
Unable to figure out just what they were, Steve Hornsby collected the jelly like balls and put them in his refrigerator for further investigation.
Hopefully, there’s no other house-mates to wake up early one morning, stumble to the kitchen for breakfast and make some toast with the “awesome blue jelly Steve got for us!”

A man in Dorset has been left mystified after tiny blue spheres fell from the sky into his garden.
Steve Hornsby from Bournemouth said the 3cm diameter balls came raining down late on Thursday afternoon during a hail storm. He found about a dozen of the balls in his garden. He said: “[They're] difficult to pick up, I had to get a spoon and flick them into a jam jar.”
The Met Office said the jelly-like substance was “not meteorological”.Mr Hornsby, a former aircraft engineer, said: “The sky went a really dark yellow colour. ”As I walked outside to go to the garage there was an instant hail storm for a few seconds and I thought, ‘what’s that in the grass’?”
Mr Hornsby said he was keeping the balls in his fridge while he tried to find out what they were. Walking around his garden he found many more blue spheres were scattered across the grass.
He said: “The have an exterior shell with a softer inner but have no smell, aren’t sticky and do not melt.”
