Normally, one would expect things like sleet, rain, snow, and hail falling from the sky. However, there have been strange occurrences that left the world stunned.
Did you know that Russia experienced its first ever meteorite crash a few years ago? You would mostly expect things like these to happen in works of fiction.
What’s even more surprising is that the meteorite crash wasn’t the most outlandish thing to fall from the sky. Things like blood, frogs, and spiders have also fallen from the sky.
Things like these makes one pinch themselves to see if there are awake.
Tons of other bizarre anomalies have occurred time and time again in different countries. The audiences who witnessed these anomalies will never forget them because of how extremely unusual they were.
After all, who can blame them for having nightmares from an occasion where they witnessed blood or frogs falling from the sky?
A large number of people who did not get to witness the weird things that the sky had to offer thought that all of it was a hoax. However, they were quickly proven wrong as some in some of the instances people made videos and took pictures to prove that things like these do happen at times.
Some of these unusual incidents became major news and social media hits while there are others that not a lot of people know about. So without further ado, let us discuss ten of the most unusual things that fell from the sky.
10 Blood Rain
Blaming microorganisms can be quite simple for unusual weather conditions. For instance, a large number of residents who lived in Spanish villages experienced an unpleasant surprise back in 2014.
They saw their village water fountains turn into an extremely gory red shade. This caused quite a lot of panic in the village and led people to believe that the village was cursed. Later on however, it was discovered that their fountains were not spraying blood.
Instead, it was just plain water that turned red because of microscopic algae. After some research it was confirmed that what people were referring to as “blood rain” was essentially rain water that contained freshwater algae.
The algae, also known as Haematococcuspluvialis, create a reddish pigment when under too much stress.
A small town in Columbia known as La Sierra Choco was not quite as fortunate as the above mentioned Spanish villagers. They claimed that they indeed experienced blood rain back in 2008.
An experienced bacteriologist sampled the substance that fell from the sky and verified that it was indeed blood. Johnny Milton Cordoba, who was a priest in that town, claimed that this blood rain was God’s way of telling people to steer clear from their evil deeds.
