Mystery sludge falls from sky over Canada

Several residents in the city of Kelowna have reported having their cars hit by a mysterious substance.
The most recent incident, which occurred on Keloka Drive in Rose Valley, saw one woman emerge from her home to find the disgusting goop distributed all over her car and driveway.

"It's pretty gross," she said. "We went out at six this morning and the entire passenger side of the vehicle was covered in this very strange sludge."

The phenomenon was strangely localized, with nothing found in any of her neighbors gardens.

"I have no idea what it is. It's very bizarre," she said.

"Maybe it is birds, but it certainly does not appear to be."

The incident is the latest in a spate of unexplained deluges to have been reported in the city in recent weeks with two other residents being hit by the falling sludge back in May.

According to Transport Canada, the substance is definitely not falling from airplanes, leaving the precise nature and origin of the peculiar goop a total mystery.

I wonder if it's ash and soot coming from the volcano's in hawaii? Air currents pick it up, moisture in the air creates a sludge and then it 'rains' down on cars. Just an idea.

Thanks. It looks like it could have been sprayed with a water gun - the ones that look like syringes. That would explain missing two cars closer to the road.

It's chemtrails.

If it had fallen from an aircraft it would have been more widespread, you'd think. Maybe someone had it in for this family? It looks nasty. I remember a small white car from the neighborhood that someone spray painted YIELD onto, once. Maybe a message was being sent?

Better sludge than slags, am I right, lads?

This weird sludge probably started as a block of ice expelled from a passing alien spacecraft.

Just my opinion but I think it was due to a lazy or stupid sanitation worker.

Looks like a transit flock of birds decided to poop at the same time. No biggie, it happens, since they eat at the same time.

It's poop... airplane poop.
