"Star Jelly" spotted in wake of Russian meteor

This strange substance has been recorded as far back as the 1300s.

A meteor blazing across the daytime sky is certainly an unusual event. Historically it was - and often still is - seen as a portent, a sign of something powerful and unknowable. Strange things were said to happen around these events, with one of the strangest being the appearance of "star jelly" in fields and other open areas.

Elvis Presley and aliens

A surprisingly strong connection.

Conspiracy theories have swirled around Elvis Presley since long before his death. But I was surprised to learn recently that there are a lot of connections between Elvis Presley and aliens. Not only was Presley obsessed with UFOs, it seems like UFOs may have been obsessed with Presley.
