Things What Done Fell from the Sky: Rains of Fire

In this post on Things What Done Fell from the Sky, The OddBlog reports on a shower of fire that occurred in Surrey, England in 1867. While many reports of sulphuric rains are later identified as pollen, residents of Thomas Ditton say whatever fell from the sky on October 18th, 1867 cast a "brilliant" light for about 10 minutes. The next morning, eyewitnesses say rain puddles were "thickly covered with a deposit of sulphur."

The event has yet to be explained.
