     Mysterious, long strands of fiber were picked from bushes and trees here by two teachers who said the 3-mile trail was left by a “cigar-shaped aircraft. They said their hands temporarily turned green after touching the strands.

Their story about the strange aircraft, also reported seen by 60 children here, was similar to reports in California, France and New Guinea in the past two years.

Did UFOs in Portugal cause ‘angel hair’ to fall from the sky?

Witnesses in Portugal were left perplexed as they watched “angel hair” 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 – 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, “The samples often evaporate before they can be properly analysed.”

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.

Some believe that angel hair is nothing more than spider webs spun by migrating spiders who use these webs as sails to fly through the sky. But as researchers who looked at the analysis done on the Italy samples point out, spider webs are made up of nitrogen, calcium, hydrogen, and oxygen–not the elements reportedly found in the collected samples.

Others believe that angel hair is a byproduct of UFO propulsion systems.

Reported angel hair sightings were more common in the 1970s. But, as UFO researcher Nigel Watson, author of the Haynes Manual for UFO Investigations, points out, “It is only in recent years that angel hair sightings have returned again.”

Spiders blamed for mass UFO sighting

Players and fans at a football (soccer) match were shocked and perplexed when a UFO moved slowly over the stadium.

This incident occurred back on October 27, 1954 in Florence, Italy. Ten thousand fans were packed into the Stadio Artemi Franchi for the match. Then, just after half time, the crowd fell silent as the unidentified object appeared over the stadium. Even the players stopped and gazed at the unusual aerial object.

One of those players, Ardico Magnini, recalls, “It was something that looked like an egg that was moving slowly, slowly, slowly. Everyone was looking up and also there was some glitter coming down from the sky, silver glitter.” He continues, “We were astonished we had never seen anything like it before. We were absolutely shocked.”

Other witnesses describe seeing multiple cigar-shaped UFOs that were “moving very fast and then they just stopped.”

“At the time the newspapers spoke of aliens from Mars,” says Roberto Pinotti, president of Italy’s National UFO Centre. “Of course now we know that is not so – but we may conclude that it was an intelligent phenomenon, a technological phenomenon and a phenomenon that cannot be linked with anything we know on Earth.”

The material witnesses saw falling from the sky when the UFO(s) were present is a strange sticky substance that has been reported in other UFO cases, and is most often referred to as “angel hair.” According to the BBC, multiple witnesses collected samples of this material and delivered it to the Institute of Chemical Analysis at the University of Florence. Spectrographic analysis revealed that it contained boron, silicon, calcium, and magnesium. Aside from its composition, researchers were unable to determine what it was.

But one person claims he can explain this “angel hair” stuff and the 1954 UFO sighting with one word: spiders.

James McGaha, astronomer and director of the Grasslands Observatory in Tucson, Arizona, comments, “When I looked at this case originally I thought perhaps it was a fireball, a very bright meteor breaking up in the atmosphere. They can be cigar-shaped with pieces breaking off. But it became fairly apparent that this was actually caused by young spiders spinning webs, very, very thin webs.” He explains that migrating spiders “use these webs as sails and they link together and you get a big glob of this stuff in the sky and the spiders ride on this to move between locations.”

McGaha is a noted skeptic who relishes the opportunity to explain away any and all UFO sightings, because, after all, the “UFO phenomenon is nothing but myth, magic and superstition,” according to him.

Pinotti disagrees with the spider theory for a variety of reasons. He points to the analysis done on the “angel hair.” The BBC points out, “Spider silk is a protein – an organic compound containing nitrogen, calcium, hydrogen and oxygen – not the elements reportedly found in the samples.” Philip Ball, a science writer and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, agrees that the spider theory is thin. “Magnesium and calcium are fairly common elements in living bodies, boron and silicon much less so – but if these were the main elements that the white fluff contained, it doesn’t sound to me as though they’d come from spiders,” he explains.

Oh. And then there were the 10,000 witnesses who watched the UFO(s) “moving very fast and then they just stopped.”

It’s unlikely that this sixty-year-old mass UFO sighting mystery will ever be definitively solved. And, based on witness testimony and scientific analysis, it’s also unlikely that spiders are a realistic possibility.
