Fabricable materials have fallen from the sky

A fall is described in All the Year Round, 8-254, occurring in the towns of Bradly, Selborne and Alresford, England, and in the triangular space included by these towns, on Sept. 21, 1741. The substance was described as “cobwebs,” falling in flake-formation–a relatively heavy substance that fell with “some velocity,” about 1" by 5-6" long. Wernerian Nat. Hist. Soc. Trans., 5-386, reports two falls, the second lasting from 9 a.m. until night.
