There are lots of legends about mysterious animal bodies falling from the sky in history. And especially in the Middle Ages when stories about rat-rain, bat-rain, fish-rain and frog-rain were heard from time to time.

Local residents always considered it as a symbol of plague. Although some of the legends are quite weird, such things did happen. Let's look at examples of what exactly has fallen from the sky.

1. Golf balls, Florida, U.S.


On Sept. 1 1969, a strange storm, which saw a large number of golf balls falling in the Punta Gorda region, confused the local government in Florida very much. There still remains no appropriate explanation for it. But some experts believe that the region, famous for its golf courses, could have been hit by one of the frequent tornados near Florida Bay. The tornado may have taken the golf balls and dropped them elsewhere.
