Â Â Â Witnesses in Portugal were left perplexed as they watched âangel hairâ fall from the sky.
These strange wispy strands descended from the sky during a late October afternoon. According to witnesses, the phenomenon was observed during two consecutive weekends.
According to UK media outlet Metro, a witness claims:
Me and a couple of friends sent [the angel hair] to be analysed â and the weirdest things happened. It reacts to UV light. It comes alive.
Instances of this angel hair falling from the sky have been reported around the world. But studying the material has proven difficult. As the Metro points out, âThe samples often evaporate before they can be properly analysed.â
However, material was collected from an angel hair incident in Italy in 1954. Spectrographic analysis revealed that the sample contained boron, silicon, calcium, and magnesium. But, aside from its composition, researchers were unable to determine what it was. . . .
