Things What Done Fell from the Sky: Flesh and Blood

For a full three minutes one sunny, cloudless day on August 1st, 1869, flesh and blood fell, covering two acres of farmland near Los Nietos, California. The farm belonged to a J. Hudson, who said short fine hairs fell along with the flesh and blood. The flesh fell in particles, as well as in strips from 1-6" in length.

Cursory research showed that a similar event happened some two months earlier, when flesh and blood rained in nearby Santa Clara County.
