- *Mysterious "angel hair" -- micro strands covering
acres, white fibrous "goo", luminous flecks and long strands
-- fibers that dissipate quickly -- falling from the sky onto trees, houses,
- *UFOs -- strange unexplained lights, discs, spheres,
fireballs in the atmosphere -- have been reported or recorded over a hundred
if not thousands of years
- *Persistent contrails have in some form existed since
the making of skywriting planes and jet engines -- but never in such grand
proportions witnessed across our skies since 1994...nor with the strange
consistency, associated "clouds" and prism effects
- *Spherical objects and strange "cloud" substances
apparently associated with persistent contrails -- fill our skies -- the
usual "clouds" being manipulated by the objects into geometric
and swirling patterns
- It would seem at first that these topics would not have
much in common -- except that they all seem to appear in our earth's atmosphere
--distant and elusive--just beyond our grasp. But might there be connections...from
the distant past?
- Anecdotal Reports
- While it does appear from age-old reports and paintings
that similar materials may have fallen from the skies at least as early
as the 14th century (see Bonaventura Salimbeni's "Glorification of
the Eucharist" 1600 -http://www.montalcino-tuscany.it/montalcino_ufo.htm)--consider
this account from the 1700's:
- "In 'All the Year Round' is described a fall that
took place in England, in the towns of Bradly, Selbourne, and Alresford,
and in a triangular space included by these three towns. The substance
is described as "cobwebs"--but it fell in flake-formation, or
in "flakes or rags about one inch broad and five or six long."
Also these flakes were of a relatively heavy substance--"they fell
with some velocity." The quantity was great--the shortest side of
the triangular space is eight miles long." September 21, 1741.
- Pulling It All Together? ... Oblong Object Makes Trail
w/ Falling Debris & "Angel Hair"--1952
- One of the most interesting cases which appears to connect
UFOs to contrails to "Angel Hair" happened on July 19, 1952
over a river in Puerto Maldonado, Peru. "The attention of Customs
Inspector Sr. Domingo Troncoso, then with the Peruvian Customs Office
at Puerto Maldonado on the jungle frontier with Bolivia, was called to
a very strange cigar-shaped flying object over the river area. The big
dirigible-shaped craft was flying horizontally and fairly low in the sky,
passing from right to left from the observers position. It was leaving
a dense trail of thick smoke, vapor, or substance on its wake. This object
was a real, structured, physical machine and may be seen from its reflection
in the waters of the Madre de Dios river underneath it. The object was
estimated to be over a hundred feet long."
- Wendell Stevens states in the video "UFOs From Beyond-Sightings"
that the trail appeared to produce debris, dark objects and "angel
hair" which covered the area under it. (See "UFO Photographs
Around the World": Wendle Stevens/August Roberts, published by UFO
- Cigar Shaped UFO Leaving Trail Of Substance-1954
- On October 22, 1954, principal Mr. Rodney Warrick and
students watched with astonishment as "a large, silvery, cigar-shaped
object" hanging in the sky suddenly took off "in a horizontal
trajectory". In its wake, this object left a trail of white web-like
substance which floated down and hung on the wires along the road. It was
reported to have descended in both strands and balls. [reported in Lorenzen,
UFO: The Whole Story and Hill's Unconventional Flying Objects]
- Spheres & Web-Like Substance-1973
- At 2:00 p.m. on October 22, 1973, in Sudbury, Massachusetts,
a child ran into the house calling to his mother to come outside to see
"the biggest spiderweb in the world". The mother discovered in
her yard a silvery-white web-like material covering bushes and hanging
from the trees. As she looked toward the sky, she witnessed a shiny, silvery,
spherical object moving off to the west as more of this web-like substance
fell from the sky for another 2 hours. The witness took samples on construction
paper and placed them in a glass jar and into the refrigerator taking them
to a local laboratory for examination. The material was white and translucent
and diminishing rapidly. (UFO Investigator, March 1974)
- 20 Silver Balls & 'Cobweb' -- 1998
- "At 5:04 p.m. on Sunday, August 9, 1998, according
to USA Today, dozens of residents of a small Australian community Quirindi
swear that they saw cobwebs fall from the sky after twenty silver balls
passed overhead and called Australia's National UFO Hotline after the incident.
- According to the Tamworth, N.S.W. North Daily Leader,
"Mrs. E. Stansfield, 61 years (old), said that she saw cobwebs falling
from the sky. She saw which passed overhead. When she went out to her daughter,
she too was covered in fine strands of cobweb. When she tried to pick it
up, it disintegrated in her hand. The family car had cobwebs all over it."
- Shimmery Strands & Persistent Contrails--2001-- A
- "We are seeing gossamer-thin, shimmery strands seeming
to be from 1 foot to 8 feet to 20 long, visible mainly when brightly backlit
by the sun. These can be observed falling/drifting high up in the sky--or
draped lightly on cars, trees, fences, etc. with careful inspection and
bright light. It is otherwise virtually invisible." Some of these
"falls" seem to be associated with a large number of persistent
contrails overhead...a few witnesses say that they followed with binoculars
the substance from a persistent contrail to the ground.
- "Angel Hair"
- While there are obviously multiple events and projects
occurring in our atmosphere -- there certainly may be many sources for
these strange substances falling to earth. Descriptions range from clumps
of "goo" to fine filaments covering large areas to cotton-like
balls suddenly snowing on lawns. Perhaps these are from the same general
source (i.e., UFOs) but with variations in substance depending upon the
type (i.e., sphere, cigar, oval, etc.)...or these substances are from a
variety of sources....some human made.
- Many sightings of "angel hair" at high altitude
drifting downward to the ground have been reported in the form of "flecks
and strands" -- the balls or flecks ranging in size from less than
an inch to several inches in diameter and the strands between 1-2 feet
to 30+ feet in length. Usually these are reported during a clear blue sky,
the flecks (balls) and strands appearing translucent in the sunlight. (Many
witnesses used binoculars and looked up close to the morning sun and were
alarmed at the amount of the substance and the length of time of these
- Clumps of fluffy white material falling like snow or
found on tops of weeds or grasses have also been witnessed after a strange
has fog lifted. One such "fall" occurred on November 2, 2000
in a North Texas community:
- "I awoke to a thick almost dusty colored fog along
the bottom land near my house. As the sun began to rise, this eerie fog
began to lift -- the sky above the fog was clear and the top of the dusty
fog looked white and wispy similar to some of the wispy cirrus-like clouds
associated with persistent contrails. This fog rose in a matter of minutes
revealing small white fluffy almost cotton ball looking material all over
the tall weeds in the area. These balls looked to be about 2-3 inches in
diameter and literally vanished as the sunlight hit them."
- Multiple reports are streaming in of observers with binoculars
witnessing strands as long as 30 feet along with silicon-looking or translucent
appearing "flecks" (ranging in size from less than an inch to
6 inches in diameter) floating downward at an angle from high altitudes.
- It is interesting to note that over the last few years,
reports have come in from those concerned about persistent contrails ("chemtrails")
-- describing rather large stringy and even tube-like substances along
roadways and draped over trees and power lines.
- The weather and atmospheric conditions usually differ
for each type of "angel hair" (using the collectively accepted
descriptive terminology which undoubtedly describes differing materials).
From observations and reports over time, it appears that the very fine
prism-filled strands fall on large areas over night usually on a clear
night, the "flecks and long strands" often fall from a milky
blue sky, "cotton balls" or fluffs appear on the landscape after
a strange white wispy fog lifts and the long fibrous "goo" or
tubes seem to fall with a sky full of persistent contrails -- tho the reports
- What -- if anything -- do all these reports have in common?
- Black Lights Microfilaments & Phosphorous Trails
- A most interesting report of tiny filaments discovered
on clothing which brightly flouresced under a blacklight suggested phosphorus
or barium titanate microfilaments or polymers possibly emanating from persistent
contrails or other atmospheric source:
- "On my person, I had detected [using a blacklight]
persistent "patches" (probably formed from drying raindrops on
Thursday as well as persistent and residual "microfilaments"
on a sweater worn during a "normal-looking" (but otherwise exposure)
- The fluorescing characteristics of each are fascinating.
They start glowing about their complete portion long before they are even
directly in the light path, and will do so even if you have a moderate-wattage
incandescent bulb lit simultaneously (just for inspection purposes). They
also "respond" very quickly to black light "stimuli"
- meaning they need no "charge" time, they "peak" as
fast as you can bring the light over - and put forth an amazing glow for
something so absolutely invisible under normal sunlight illumination --
or for that matter, under standard household or office lighting....
- ..the refractive index of barium titanate (BaTiO3) and
found it to be highly refractive, even among many such refractive substances
(it weighed in at around 2.5 -nearly double the refractive index of water
or ethanol, and higher even than that of glass ...we're looking for something
which is pretty darned small ("powdered", for size purposes,
though it is not "ground" in manufacture), very refractive (splits
light passing through it into constituent wavelengths), an enhancing mechanism
for certain wavelengths of light, and quite possibly transparent (think
about the other items on moondog's original list - air, water, ethanol,
- Might there just be a connection between the refractive
properties of this substance and that observed in the clouds formed from
persistent contrails exhibiting similar qualities or associated spherical
- Consider the following report in a newspaper 50 years
previous to the above observations:
- Police officers in Philadelphia in 1950 discovered a
strange luminescent form floating to the ground:
- In the Philadelphia Inquirer, September 27, 1950, it
was reported that two South Philadelphia police officers while patrolling
on Vare Blvd. around 10 p.m. spotted what looked like a "parachute"
slowly drifting downward at treetop level. This 6 foot object settled to
the ground and the officers called for two other officers to join them
in investigating this strange landing. "The four officers stood a
few feet from the object....turned on their flashlights...whereas it gave
off a purplish glow, almost a mist that looked like it contained crystals."
When one of the officers reached out to pick up part of the object, "the
mass on which he laid his hands dissolved, leaving nothing but a slight,
odorless sticky residue." Within 25 minutes the whole object had evaporated.
- Did our government or R&D establishment have projects
in 1950 that discarded web-like phosphorescent material which fell to the
earth? Might these odd jelly-like substances be related to UFOs? There
certainly have been reports of mysterious "glows" reveal by a
blacklight on the persons and clothing of those claiming extraterrestrial
or UFO abductions or experiences.
- Several multiple witness reports of most unusual luminescent
contrails behind oval lights in the night sky add to the mystery. A Navy
seaman on board a ship out to sea reported to his superiors that he and
others of the crew had watched as an oval shaped light circled the ship
sporting a long persisting luminous contrail. A whole neighborhood north
of Dallas was stunned as a golden white oval object moved silently over
their houses leaving behind a billowing luminescent trail.
- Were these UFOs or the latest two-seater craft designed
by human underground special projects? Is there a connection between these
strange luminescent contrails and bright blacklight filaments and the web-like
purple glowing object found in 1950? Could the objects within persistent
contrails or perhaps objects creating some of the PCs be the creators of
these glowing trails? Might a phosphorescent substance be a by-product
of propulsion or other process of certain unconventional flying objects?
- [It is also interesting to note that many UFO researchers
claim a connection between "alien abductions" and a substance
found on clothing and skin which casts a strange glow under a black light.]
- Lab Reports
- Clearly in order to draw a clear association, one would
have to have a multitude of verifiable observations of this material followed
from persistent contrails or a UFO to ground level... and there have been
such reports. Another important element to making a clear association (regardless
of origin) is to obtain many reliable lab analyses of clean samples. At
present there is an ongoing effort to collect samples and send them into
reputable laboratories for analyses.
- We have reports of fine hair-like strands covering acres
of fields, clumps of clear or brown gelatinous material, long strands of
"goo" draping over cars and power lines, drops of clear sticky
substance on windshields, cotton-like balls falling like snow, blizzards
of luminous flecks and strands drifting high in the atmosphere. What they
all appear to have in common is that these forms fell from the sky and
dissolved or evaporated rather quickly at ground level.
- Are these substances all from the same source or from
a variety of sources? Could not that which fell to the ground years ago
now be simulated by another more modern source? Perhaps we have both human
and "heavenly" sources for this material? Through a bit a current
science, we have found the following.
- Several "angel hair" samples from the 1990's
with similar characteristics and lab test results have been openly shared.
Frontier Analysis Limited compared four samples (one associated by observation
with "chemtrails" overhead) and found them similar. What this
lab found was a silk-like protein polymer...not made by spiders though
similar to caterpillar silk.
- In one recent sample of "white fibrous material"
provided by Retha Rutherford to Frontier Analysis, fatty acid amides (not
found in previous samples) were found in addition to hydrocarbons such
as eicosane which was found in a previous sample. This was suspected as
"part of the purported gelatinous material (goo) noted by the witness"
or "final degradation products". (See website at http://www.homestead.com/rustys_retreat/spiderstuff.html
for photos and report and http://tracers.8m.com/ah.htm for excerpt from
this report and an another interesting lab analysis)
- As stated in the Rutherford lab report: "The fibrous
material compares to that from "angel hair" falls in Los Gatos,
California (October 19-20, 1977), Sacramento, California (November 11,
1999, and Burns Oregon (November 4, 1999) which was analyzed by this laboratory."
- Another similar sample indicates that the "fibrous
material with protein amide linkages" had references to silk but was
definitely not cobwebs. The report further states: "The fibers also
have small amounts of an ester type material and other components on the
surface." Some of the volatiles found include solvents, surfactants,
antistatic components, viscosity builders ...various hydrocarbons.
- This would suggest a human origin although it is hardly
far-fetched to consider that visiting extraterrestrials or other yet to
be discovered entities making our planet their home could use and produce
similar chemical components for their creations and projects.
- A documented report from Australia indicates that a "fall"
of a "shapeless mass" over Victoria in October 1953 contained
traces of Boron, Calcium, Magnesium and Silicon in a nylon-like compound.
The sample is in the possession of Andrew Tomas, a former editor of UFOIC
Australian F.S. Review and is presently kept in an air-tight jar. The mass
now measures only half an inch across having shrunk from some three feet.
It appears that silicon and a "nylon-like compound" were in use
in the early fifties. One might ask what the purpose might be for this
substance -- if dropped from the sky by humans in the early 50's.
- Some have reported various biological components in their
tested samples purported falling from persistent contrails (chemtrails)...such
as bacteria, fungi, molds... suggesting the possibility of biological warfare
agents or test simulants. Many of the pathogens presented can be explained
by ground contamination although some samples suggest a lab manufactured
origin. Further collection and tests will be needed to sort this out.
It would be important to also concentrate on the other components in these
samples which are unusual or can be attributed to a human-manufactured
- Suggestions that the larger clumps and strings of gelatinous
material may be evidence of a "clogged nozzle on a chemtrail sprayplane"
merit further investigation.
- Human Made Possibilities
- Is what has been termed "angel hair" something
emanating from a human or extraterrestrial aerial object? Or is this strange
concoction the result of a naturally occurring process in our atmosphere
-- plaguing the public for 50 or 100 years?
- One intriguing consideration is that either UFOs (the
extraterrestrial version) or advanced military projects are at work here
pouring out various forms, objects and substances into the atmosphere via
persistent contrails.... perhaps even creating probes or robots within
- And perhaps we have superconductors at work for levitation
of an object/robot with a nitrogen coolant (which might account for the
"cloudy" substance surrounding the PC related objects). Materials
for creation, energy sources, communications, coolants, camouflage, radar
jamming or enhancing all might produce by products or 'waste' in the atmosphere.
- Are we looking at another example of back-engineering
or a "knock-out" of handy ET camouflage or UFO propulsion or
even object or robotic "creation" in the atmosphere? Perhaps
we should look (albeit superficially at public release levels) at what
is being researched and developed at universities with government/defense
support. The possibilities are limitless but can be narrowed down by rational
consideration of what open research is before us.
- Taking a closer look at those "angel hair"
lab results--we can now ask:
- What material dissolves with heat and specific solvents,
stretches like elastic upon quick action and shatters when struck with
- The answer could lie with latest greatest science-military-corporate
brainchild ... polymers...chains of carbon atoms with links with other
atoms such as oxygen, silicon, sulphur & phosphorus (most common) some
forming crystalline or semi-crystalline solids...other liquids or melts.
Silk-like polymers are changing our world -- used in the development of
everything from exceedingly strong materials to semiconductor nanoparticles
to superconductors. (for a review of the attributes of polymers see "Building
with Snakes - the Physics of Long-Chain Molecules" a lecture by Adrian
- Bioactive polymers will be used as biological sensors--
sensing physical functions and blood levels of pharmaceuticals. Electroactive
polymers that can "move" upon electrical stimulation can be used
one day to replace damaged muscles -- in the meantime used as windshield
wipers on a Mars-bound robot. Optoelectric polymers now used to create
thin film transistors, electro luminescent flat panel displays and chemical
- Protein polymer creation is the culmination of the study
of spider silk manufacture by spiders themselves and the subsequent development
of an in situ spinning system which mimics the spider's spinnerets (biomimetics).
This system constructs oligonucleotides which are linked to build repetitive
gene units for protein expression with the end goal of producing flexible
- According to Mike Blair in "Chemtrails Said To Be
Part of Top Secret Military Maneuvers Over America" published in The
Spotlight 10-9-00, these "polymer fibers apparently have several applications
in conjunction with the barium salt mixture". Some applications are
- --"cloaking" of aircraft--when irradiated with
the substances, an aircraft is invisible to radar and the naked eye
- --advanced radar applications
- --the decontamination and detection of biological weapons
- --communications applications, including the ability
to direct radio beams back to earth
- --weather modification as a military weapon
- --the Air Force Variable Terrain Refractivity Parabolic
Equation (VTRPE), which, with the use of sophisticated computers, enables
a person to view what an enemy radar system sees
- Smart Dust -- Piezoelectric Polymers -- Aerial Robotics
- Silk-like polymers -- tiny filaments with the capability
of "intelligence" -- gathering and sharing information and acting
in accordance with "programmed" instructions? Can understand
fabrics changing color or constitution according to preference -- but what
are these "silk-like" fibres and polymers doing high up in our
- And then there are those nanotech devices... Might these
infintesimal microbots perhaps be building larger devices to roam the atmosphere
-- sensing and working on the weather or for less altruistic purposes?
- Kristopher Pister is leading a team of researchers at
the University of California at Berkeley that is developing tiny, electronic
devices called "smart dust," designed to capture mountains of
information about their surroundings while literally floating on air.
- "Smart Dust is a project whose 3-year goal is
to integrate communications, intelligence, power, and sensors into a package
that is no larger than 1 mm."
- Using MEMS technology developed by DARPA and its offspring
research at a number a prestigious universities across the country, smaller
and smarter devices are being manufactured at small cost. From basketball
size to microscopic size -- robots with emergent and interactive ("swarming")
behaviors are being tested for use in battlefield, rescue and intelligence
gathering situations. (see http://tracers.8m.com/robot.htm for further
- Bio and Neuro mimetic forms the blueprint for autonomous
and learned activities -- with little need for continuous human control.
Even so, the devices capable of atmospheric activity shown at university
research sites can only reach low altitudes and are severely limited in-air
time and distance. (see http://www.rense.com/general3/mysteryobjects.htm)
- Not only are scientists creating smartdust, super polymers
and microbots -- they have fashioned "sensors" to float on the
air looking much like seeds -- silicon maple seeds. These are released
on the wind from fairly high altitude to gather information on weather
conditions and other intelligence information. Might not these account
for the "flecks" in the "flecks and strands" type of
- It is interesting to note in reference to barium titanate
as the source of microfilament found on clothing mentioned earlier -- that
"chemtrail" researchers have reported an increase in barium salts
in the atmosphere. While this finding needs further examination and research
-- it might indicate a relationship between the prevalence and increase
of persistent contrails and the increase in this material.
- It is also interesting that barium titanate (ferroelectrics)
has dielectric and piezoelectric properties and polymers have been developed
which also display these properties. Piezoelectrics is currently utilized
in the operation of robots and microrobots on the ground...and perhaps
in the sky?
- Might superconductor technology and piezoelectric be
utilized to create and fly aerial robots with emergent behaviors, mass
communication and various sensors for elemental and intelligence gathering?
Perhaps the atmosphere is now clouded with the remnants of this technology--some
falling to the ground? (see http://www2.ncsu.edu/eos/project/erl_html/microrobotics/actuation/actuation.htm
- Some have suggested that the strands, flecks and fibres
are formed by some mysterious atmospheric process. As one interested party
theorized: "'Angel hair' may be a product of hydrocarbons (air pollution)
combining with moisture in the air in the presence of high energy RF energy
(microwave) pulses produced by a UFO. Over time, the threads change back
into water and dust particles."
- The late Paul Hill (a respected NASA scientist) in his
book "Unconventional Flying Objects: A Scientific Analysis",
suggests that "angel hair" may indeed be a part of little understood
UFO processes.Others conjecture that these substances are a product of
waste products released from aircraft. Still others conjecture that these
form as a result of natural processes high in the atmosphere. I find it
strange that scientists have not offered reasonable explanations for this
odd material if this is the case.
- Perhaps the atmosphere is now clouded with the remnants
of ancient extraterrestrial and/or newly created human technology--some
falling to the ground?
- I have no doubt of the existence of very unusual contrails,
objects and substances in the atmosphere. Yet after over two years of research
-- I am still unsure about the origins of these three phenomena. And I
have yet to actually witness strands of luminescent material emanate from
an object (UFO) or a persistent contrail.
- If we are to take seriously the reports over time of
sightings of quickly dissipating material being released by unidentifiable
craft -- then we must recognize a long-term relationship between this substance
and UFOs. The question would remain -- who created these objects?
- If it could be established that the same or similar substance
fell from a UFO in the 18th century through present times -- we could at
least begin to establish that ET or other undiscovered planetary entity
was at work in this phenomenon. We simply do not at present have enough
verifiable lab reports or analyses to compare over time (from the 20th
- Even if we were able to establish a plausible connection
between observed unidentifiable objects and "angel hair" falls
-- we could not rule out the possibility that at some point humans in the
early 20th century --developed the capability to create both probes or
craft with high maneuverability and polymers or synthetic materials. Or
could it be that some humans have been creating airships and exotic craft
for several hundred years or more? Perhaps this secret talent has been
passed down through the centuries and kept behind closed doors.
- A possible explanation could be that both an extraterrestrial
and human project(s) could be spreading out before us in our skies....and
drifting into our backyards.
- New photographs and videos are coming in everyday from
all over the world that appear to show similar objects within and moving
to and from some persistent contrails. Not only do these white cloudy objects
interact with and link up with darker objects also seen with persistent
contrails -- but the objects together have been photographed creating persistent
trails (see the "TrailMaker" section of the Tracers website at
http://tracers.8m.com/tracers.html and http://tracers.8m.com/U-CC.htm).
- It is conceivable that persistent contrails -- the classic
spreading variety or those that create the strange "cirrus-like"
clouds in our skies -- are the product of these white and dark objects
or larger UFOs. In this case -- a connection between spheres observed dispensing
"angel hair" overhead and spheres dispersing an unusual substance
that appear as persistent contrails could be further explored.
- To show an association between persistent contrails or
UFOs and unusual substances falling to earth -- it would be critical to
get samples of the same material at the same time from a contrail or behind
an object (best of luck on this one!), from the air above the area where
the substance has landed and has been collected -- with observers from
air and ground.
- What is exciting at this time is what observations, photos/videos
and lab analyses we do have. Dissipating substances of various consistencies
are falling from the sky. This has clearly been established. And it is
clear that much more collection, collaboration and analysis will be needed
to trace the source and purpose of these materials and substances.
- With more information surfacing everyday...perhaps we
are closer than we think to solving this mystery... More to come.
