Things What Done Fell from the Sky: Raining Fire

For roughly 10 minutes on the night of October 18th, 1867, fire reportedly fell from the sky over Thames Ditton, Surrey, England. The following morning, puddles and rainwater tanks were "Thickly covered with a deposit of sulfur."

A couple of weeks later, eyewitnesses in Chatham, England claimed to have seen numerous black discs in the sky above. These disks were propelled by some unknown means that produced smoke.
