From raw meat to gold coins it seems that the heavens have an inexhaustible supply of oddities to cast down at us. While some of these can be attributed to meteorites, debris from airplanes and even old satellites, some of the reports are far more bizarre. It seems that for thousands of years everything from Angel Hair to St. Bernard dogs have plummeted to Earth from who knows where!
