Minnesota’s Grand Forks Herald has reported that an Otter Tail County couple woke up Saturday to find strange jelly-like blobs on their patio at their home near Dent.

Debra Eull claimed that she and her husband found the clear blobs following a rain storm:

“(My husband) happened to look out and saw what looked like hail. It wasn’t very many of them.They’re little jelly blobs. I have to assume they came out of the sky.”

Jeff Bodwin, a Minnesota State University Moorhead chemistry professor, feels that the blobs have a more terrestrial explanation:

“I would say looking at it and feeling it, it probably is just a water retention gel of some sort. A silicone polymer… maybe. Or some other type of polymer that just absorbs and traps a lot of water.”

There is a rich tradition of bizarre, blob-like “things” falling from the sky, one of the most famous being the “PURPLE GLOB” that fell on Philadelphia in 1950.

    Thats a bit funny, i live in that area and i didn’t hear a thing about this from anyone or the news papers.


    Whatever the stuff is, some poor remediation company will have to clean it up. Let’s hope they don’t get “abducted” in the process.
