----------------------------------------------



FORTEAN WEATHER PHENOMENA:


A rain of hazelnuts fell in Dublin, Ireland on 9 May 1867.


On 10 May 1928, eye witnesses aboard the H.M.S. Herald in the South China Sea described a bizarre event:

"It appeared as if a heavy rainfall was taking place from one cloud to another. It was quite apparent that no rain was falling into the sea...This rain was 'funnel'-shaped and it is considered that a small waterspout had formed in the sky and was sucking rain from a heavy cumulus cloud to another cloud (small, fluffy, and whitish) above it."


On 11 May 1894, a gopher turtle measuring six by eight inches fell during a hailstorm in Bovina, Mississippi.

A NEW FACE ON MARS -- Images from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor show some interesting shapes on the Martian surface that some claim to be signs of intelligent life, or that the "Red Planet" once supported life. See some highly detailed images from the planet depicting a human face, animals, and what some consider to be possible evidence of trees! Take a look!

ENIGMA OF THE CORVIDAE -- Ravens, crows, and other birds of the Corvidae family have had a long association with the supernatural. While Native Amercians attributed the creation and survival of humankind to the dark-plumed birds, Europeans feared and scorned the harbingers of doom, and winged messengers of Satan.
