After the event that my husband lived through the other day, I thought I'd see what I could find online about Kentucky and crazy stuff just ...falling out of the sky.
Here, I found an article about a UFO that police couldn't explain in Kentucky. And, here is another UFO sighting report, Fire ball sightings, meteors taking out power, chickens falling from the sky on I64, Grackles, red wing blackbirds, robins and starlings falling from the sky dead, airplane falling from the sky, and a four-thousand pound aluminum storage building that fell from the sky on Pine Grove church in Kentucky on a clear and lovely day! I found reports of tree limbs falling and killing people. Needless to say, I was a little freaked out and wishing I lived even further away from this strange state!
Are you noticing anything strange? Why do things just fall out of the sky in the Bluegrass State? And while I'm asking questions, why is their grass blue? Radioactive material from the UFOs? I digress.
While researching falling objects from the sky in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, I found this article along with some other cool stories in other areas of the world.
One of the strangest stories of this sort took place on March 3, 1876 when flakes of meat fell over an area 100 yards long and 50 yards wide near the Bath, Kentucky home of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Crouch. The sky was clear at the time of the fall and the flakes of meat were described as being one to three or four inches square and appeared to be fresh beef. However, according to two gentlemen who (for some reason) decided to taste the meat, it was neither mutton nor venison.
Or perhaps it wasn’t meat at all - wrote Mr. Leopold Brandeis, whose article appeared on the strange fall in a July issue of the Sanitarian. He explained that the so-called “meat” was really nothing more than “nostic” - “a low form of vegetable substance”. He did not however, explain how this substance managed to fall from the sky. His opinion on the matter did not last for long for he was soon contacted by Dr. A. Mead Edwards, president of the Newark Scientific Association, who asked for a sample of the material that had been collected from Bath County. Brandeis was kind enough to give him the entire specimen, along with the information that he had obtained it from a doctor in Brooklyn, who had in turn been given it by a Professor Chandler.
To read more click hereShortly after this, a letter from Dr. Allan McLane Hamilton was posted to the Medical Record, saying that he and Dr. J.W.S. Arnold had examined the material from the Kentucky meat shower under a microscope. The material, which had been given to them by Professor Chandler, was identified as being lung tissue from a human infant or a horse. According to the letter, “the structure of the organ in these two cases” was apparently “very similar”.
That crazy piece of iron that hit my husband came at him between Corbin and London, Kentucky on I75N. As if this was not strange enough, I also found a site dedicated to people who see strange objects falling from the sky in Kentucky. You can check it out here. In fact, objects falling from the sky in that area are so popular, Space.com wrote an article about a satellite falling from space and landing there!
So, in my crazy mind, I am thinking the earth's gravitational pull must come into play. So, I searched that. Here is a map:
Then I found an article that says the earth's gravitational pull is affecting the melting of the western ice cap and that North America would be the most affected. I saw this predication map of America in the event the ice cap did melt in its entirety:
Anyway, I guess I'm putting together a theory here. I don't know. Maybe I should drink some night-time tea or take something to help me sleep. I would love to hear your strange "it happened in Kentucky" stories too. Leave me comments below or if you want to remain anonymous, email me your story and I promise, I'll keep your name out of it!
I think I'm diving off the deep end of insomnia and I don't want to drown alone :-) All this craziness from me thinking about random objects falling from the Kentucky sky... hmm ...yeah, I'll go drink that tea now!
Night all :-)
