Angel's hair is another mystery of the UFO

18 posts in this topic

Already since the advent of Ufology, some extraterrestrial artifacts have been searched for, to prove that the Earth is actually visited by aliens. One such artifact has become famous and, hunted everywhere. The material is called, "angel's hair". This term in ufology subculture, has nothing to do with the spiritual beings mentioned in the bible or the messengers of God. "Angel's hair" is usually characterized by the phenomenon of a material similar to glass that resembles hairs or yarns in the places where the UFOs - land, take off or pass by.

These threads can lie on the ground where the UFO has landed, or as a cobweb can fly in the air, if the UFO was passing thru that location. Sometimes there are giant threads reaching to two kilometers long and can cover a large area of land. These "angel's hair" dissolve after a while. Holding in the hands, this material often fuses into small, bad odor balls. This mass is a bit radioactive. Angel's hair is usually referred to english and russian ufology literature, or in those countries where this therm is most used. In Italy, for example, it is called "Silicon Wool" or "Virgin Mary's Hair" and in France it is "Madonna's Babies" or "Madonna's Gifts". 

Throughout the history of ufology, several hundred occasions have occurred in the appearance of "angel's hair". Several dozen witnesses have succeeded in collecting samples and delivering them to laboratories, but scientists still do not know the nature of this phenomenon. The structure and origins of "angel's hair" have not yet been fully investigated, people looking for a rational explanation for this phenomenon, meanwhile others are already satisfied by alienated hypothesis of origin. It is known, however, that their composition includes: boron, silicon, calcium and magnesium. In 1954, a first serious study was carried out and the italian chemist ,Danilo Gocci, defined angel hair as a boron-silicon glass in an unstable state. The first mention of "angel's hair" dates back to 1898, when it appeared over USA, Montgomery's city, as a flying cobbled strange material. However, the most famous case took place on October 27, 1954. In Italy over Florence, two unrecognizable objects crossed the skies above the football field. After their passage, the entire football field covered with sticky material similar to the cobweb. This material was collected by chemist Danilo Gocci and his colleagues. This phenomenon was watched by more than 10,000 witnesses.

The american ufologist, Charles Maine, assumes "angel's hair" is a by-product of the UFO's engine. He says that in our spacetime, this material is not stable and, in a short space of time, it passes into it's normal spatial-temporal dimension. Other ufologists such as, Brinsley Le Poerta, believes this may be a materialization of some kind of spiritual power, much like the ectoplasm of the spiritism sessions. However, both hypothesis are criticized by skeptics. The second hypothesis is especially criticized, since the mere comparison with spirital ectoplasm, which is not even proven to be truly existing.

Another hypothesis links "angel's hair" with conspiracy theory known as "chemtrail". This is currently the most popular explanation. The conspiracy theory of chemical fertilizers says that a white trail left in the sky by a jet aircraft, does not disappear, but expands and turns into the cloud. The conspiracy theory says that this is a government-run project. Substances that propagate in this way help control society or weather control. However, the theory of chemical fertilizers did not exclude criticism aswell, since "Angel's hair" was monitored much before the arrival of planes.

In 1967, samples of "angel's hair" from New Zealand fell into the hands of Russian scientists. Physicist L.V.Kirichenko described them as follows: it is a fibrous material, consisting of 0.1 micron thick fibers. The main fiber mass is interlaced into separate 20 micron thick strands. Fibers are white, semi-red. The analyzed material does not have an analogue in nature. The main fiber mass is interlaced into separate 20 micron thick strands. Fibers are white, semi-transparent. The analyzed material does not have an analogue in nature.

What to do if you notice "angell's hair" ? First of all, admire this unusual and rare phenomenon. Second, try to collect the samples and bring them to the chemical laboratory for research. It has been noticed that "angel's hair" dissolves quickly in the fresh air or on the hands, but when placed in a plastic bag or jar and tightly closed to prevent oxygen entering, material lasts for several days. You can make an invaluable contribution to scientific discoveries by using a simple bag or jar and rushing to the lab.

Science has yet to find out the origin of "angel's hair" because the extraterrestrial origin hypothesis/speculations are not satisfied with either meteorologists, physicists or chemists who are seeking more earthly theories of the emergence of this material, since it has all components to exist on Earth.

Why people can't find this substance anymore ? What do you think ?

The opening post was strangely lacking in citations, so I'd suggest that there isn't much to explain regarding why we don't see 'it' any more.

To be specific, in answer to your question...  I would suggest it never actually existed, except in terms of ground level spider webs (common here in Oz, grassed areas are often covered with dewy webs first thing in the morning...) or spider plagues (several threads already exist on that phenomena - again, pretty common in Oz) or other types of fluffy residue, eg from cotton plantation harvesting, chemical residues after fighting fires, perhaps even algal-bloom-induced foam on the sea etc.

But you provided no evidence to link it with UFO sightings (or for any of your other claims, eg radioactivity) and I'm not aware of any well-documented cases that include any such evidence or even a mention of this issue..  So unless you can actually present something...

Having tried to track back to where you got his from, I have to ask again - is this ("educational resource based on unknown facts"  :D ) yours?:

http://www.elixirofknowledge.com/2014/04/angel-hair-connected-to-ufo.html

- whether it is or isn't, you need to cite where you get your text from, "Tyler". (And if you aren't Tyler you need to go apologise to Saru and the forum for posting a lie on that other thread.) 

May I point out you said there are several hundred documented occasions - I call on that claim - did you subtract all of the reports that were clearly shown to be spider infestations, cotton plantation residue and similar?  Anyway, show your very best citation, explaining why it could not be any of the conventional explanations, and that shows a link to ufo's...

And while you are at it, find a proper cite for the radiation claim or withdraw it.

I haven't heard much on this subject for years! 

My uncle and I were very young in the 1960s and lived next door to each other. 

It was a long time ago about 1965 or so. One night there were strange lights in the sky and something appeared to fall into the woods near by so he and my grandfather told me. My uncle and I were curious kids so we and my grandfather searched the woods the next day. My uncle found several 3-4 inch  different colored and size glass like crystals which had "angel hair" near them. He put the pretty crystals in his fish tank and kept the clear glass like fibers in his basement as a souvenir and called them angel hair. 

I don't really  know what they were but I always assumed that the green and blue crystals and clear strands of glass like fibers were from meteorites.

No. My uncle kept them not me. He went through several divorces and moved. Long gone in the trash or someone else's fish tank, I'd assume. 

Another thing that I didn't mention about the crystals was that they seemed to appear to be part glass and a plastic. They were light in weight for there size. My grandfather played with them since they were so mysterious trying to see how the crystals reacted to heat and water etc.  He discovered if you rubbed them with a waxed string they made a sound like a violin. That was cool! 

The clear fiber angel hairs seemed to be glass fibers kind of like fiber-optic which we didn't have in those days and were very sharp if you touched the ends of them.

In the woods where my uncle found them and yelled for us to come and see, the trees had been burned on some limbs and it created an opening so we knew they came from the sky. 

They didn't appear to look like cob webs as in the OPs photo but they were on the surrounding ground and weeds sticking to them like a cob webs.

Hm, interesting story. My father, when he was young saw something strange. One time he was walking back home with a dog from the neighbours, he sptotted a white orb, tried to get closer it spread warm/hot energy. Basically in seconds that thing went to sky and disappeared.

I'm not a reporter or investigator i just write for fun, because UFO is my hobby. I write and translate in spare time.

A portuguese scientist (dont remember the name, but it the event was several decades ago) was able to collect "angel's hair" after a surprising event he witnesed, unfortunatly whatever the stuff was it kinda off melted witjin minutes, the analisis were inconclusive but we need to take in consideration that the analisis devices avaliable at the time were few and probably basic even in those days.

I would not be surprise if the angel's hair is similar to the red rain that fell in India.

It was obvious that i'm not Tyler Glockner. Somebody asked a stupid question i aswered in sarcasm.

I cant as I watched it on portuguese tv, it was about ufo phenomena and how college/universities explained, it was a serious tv show, not something ojt of the History Channel.

The red rain in Kerala was due to algal spores. The exact species was identified.

Interesting...I have heard of this but never actually looked into it....It does not seem to be a common theme or occurrence in UFO accounts or is it?

The entitlement here is absurd... are you his dad or something?

I've never seen or heard of angel hair and I have seen alot of things... perhaps if it did exist it has become nonexistent because that was quite a long time ago and as any byproduct of travel perhaps it changed with the vehicles being used.
