Gossamer-like “angel’s hair,” emanating from UFOs, has fallen to Earth in a number of cases; sometimes it drapes fences, utility lines, trees, and in a few cases, entire towns.
Strands of the bizarre substance range from a few inches to more than one hundred feet long. It is white, sometimes sticky, and usually evaporates entirely. One horrified researcher watched it disappear as he raced toward his lab, intent on analyzing it.
Angel’s hair has been compared to ectoplasm, a substance which spiritualists claim to be involved in materialization of spirits. Ghosts are said to “slime” people; this gelatinous slime seems to be the first cousin of ectoplasm. However, in the Golden Age of Spiritualism, famous mediums were exposed as they faked ectoplasm. They infamously swallowed such material as cheese cloth and regurgitated it, claiming it to be ectoplasm.
There is a theory amongst some UFO researchers, however, that paranormal slime is connected to UFO emissions of angel’s hair. These phenomena run parallel and one theory states, they both could be caused by excess energy used to create materialization in the 3 dimensional (physical) worlds.
With few exceptions, angel’s hair is a rare commodity today, but it was a large part of the UFO phenomenon in the 1950s and 1960s. “The UFO Evidence,” compiled by my friend Richard Hall, now deceased, was for years a guidepost to UFO researchers; it features “the angel’s hair” phenomenon as do old NICAP reports. It was as common (perhaps more common), as burned marks on the ground or radar returns from a UFO.
Samples of Angel’s Hair from NICAP
Two personal examples from the 1950s: A friend was riding with his parents on a 1950s Texas country road when 2 UFO whipped past them, low in the sky. Immediately afterward, angel’s hair draped the fence posts, trees, and electric wires. Needless to say, my friend began a lifelong search for the UFO answer.
In my own second encounter by Eagle Lake, Ontario, where my family was vacationing, the book I was holding when the encounter began was covered in a substance which somehow got absorbed into the very molecules of the book. The book was “Toys in the Attic” about not being afraid of the unknown; I kept the book until I was 22 years old.
Sadly, it was lost in a move to the Virgin Islands. I was 4 or 5 at the time of the encounter and my mother asked later how my book got “lard” on it since we had no lard.
I don’t aim to go into the details of this encounter at this time, but simply wonder if my book got “larded” (slimed) in some materialization process. The being appeared in our cabin while I was alone and thus a “beaming in” might have occurred.
That same day, my aunt and uncle were in a canoe on the lake and saw two UFOs; I did not learn about this sighting until many years later, and so it could not have influenced me or my encounter in any way.
Angel’s hair these days after a UFO sighting is a scarce commodity. Why? Is there a different species of UFO occupants visiting these days with a different propulsion system? Or did the same species of ETs merely change its propulsion methods?
Perhaps there is a difference in the climate which does not help create the strange substance as readily. Or perhaps like the child in “Puff the Magic Dragon,” UFO occupants do not wish to leave their souvenir as much today but preferred humans in a more innocent time and bestowed this disappearing gift.
(I note here that the substance saturating my childhood book did not disappear; it seemed to be more gelatinous than angel’s hair and was actually molecularly meshed with my book, like a strange stain).
My new book, “UFO AGENDA, So... You Want to Know the Truth?” has detailed chapters on the possibilities that UFO occupants are either plasma life-forms or dark plasma life-forms. I’ll let a paragraph from my dark plasma chapter speak for itself:
“... residues are sometimes left behind by plasma activity. These residues include “angel hair,” ectoplasm, and similar weird materials sometimes found after UFO encounters. Usually these dissipate before reaching the ground, but if the UFO lands or flies very low, angel hair is sometimes left behind and a smell like bitter almond oil is present.
All of this is consistent with plasma activity. For instance, plasma EM heat and radiation coupled with water and dust create a substance like angel hair.”
This is the closest scientific explanation I have found for angel’s hair: In the laboratory, electromagnetic heat and radiation from plasma activity, combined with water and dust, create a substance like angel’s hair.” Does this nearly prove that at least some of our ET visitors are from a plasma world, or from the dark plasma biosphere?
One study says that in almost half the cases of angel’s hair, it has been seen descending from cigar-shaped UFOs which have cloudlike formations under or around them.
Although these fibers have sometimes been confused with floating spider webs, they can be differentiated by the fact that they dissolve upon contact with the ground. In one of the few examinations performed on angel’s hair, it seems to contain boron, silicon, calcium and magnesium.
It is similar in composition to borosilicate glass. However, its ephemeral nature makes more specific analysis impossible. This study would seem to be roughly consistent with the EM heat, radioactivity, water and sand theory.
In 1952, two of the most famous angel’s hair cases occurred. These were the Oloron and Gaillac sightings in France.
In Oloron, many witnesses reported seeing over 30 red, spherical UFOs flying overhead, along with what the local school superintendent described as "a narrow cylinder, apparently inclined at a 45-degree angle, slowly moving in a straight line toward the southwest. A sort of plume of white smoke was escaping from its upper end."
From these craft came a white, hair-like substance, which covered telephone wires, tree branches and the roofs. When people rolled these strands into a ball, they turned into a gelatinous substance and vanished. Ten days later, these events were repeated in Gaillac, France.
On October 27, 1954, Gennaro Lucetti and Pietro Lastrucci stood on the balcony of a hotel in St. Mark's Square in Venice and saw two "shining spindles" flying across the sky leaving a trail of the angel hair.
A fall of angel hair in Florida in 1957 was witnessed by Craig Philips who became the director of America's National Aquarium. Phillips collected samples; however, these disappeared before he could reach a laboratory. Over the years, there have been many reports of falls of angel hair around the world.
Two more “recent” reports: On February 10, 1978, a large number of fibers fell from the sky for a period of two hours near Samaru, New Zealand.
Below is the second report from The Tamworth, New South Wales Daily Leader for August 10, 1998 and USA Today for August 11, 1998.
UFOs DROP "ANGEL HAIR" IN NEW SOUTH WALES
Twenty UFOs, described as "shiny silver spheres," flew over a number of farms near Quirindi, New South Wales, Australia, last weekend, littering the ground with cobweb-like filaments called "angel hair."
According to USA Today, "Residents of a small Australian community swear that they saw cobwebs fall from the sky after UFOs passed overhead. Dozens of residents of Quirindi called Australia's National UFO Hotline after the incident."
According to the Tamworth, N.S.W. North Daily Leader, "Mrs. E. Stansfield, 61 years (old), said that she saw cobwebs falling from the sky. She saw twenty silver balls which passed overhead. When she went out to her daughter, she too was covered in fine strands of cobweb. When she tried to pick it up, it disintegrated in her hand. The family car had cobwebs all over it."
The incident took place at 5:04 p.m. on Sunday, August 9, 1998. Quirindi is just north of the Liverpool mountain range, about 70 kilometers (42 miles) southwest of Tamworth, N.S.W. and 300 kilometers (180 miles) northwest of Sydney. Australian researcher Raymond Brooks reported that the "various craft" performed aerobatic maneuvers over the farms "for 1.5 hours, including the release of 'angel hair (end of UFO Casebook case).
Of course the obvious problem with researching angel’s hair with today’s technology (if we could get it to the lab), is that there seems to be NO angel’s hair from UFOs in the present day. This in itself is a curious question – why not? Might the ETs keep developing new technology too?
If they are plasma or dark plasma (dark matter) beings, this tells us that they are not organically capable of just appearing as a flying disk of super-heated plasma. It tells us that they too rely on technology or some type of evolving methodology. If they are humans from some point in the future, then it tells us they still depend on propulsion systems and have not evolved into quasi-gods who can think themselves into flying overhead.
In other words, the absence of angel’s hair tells us that perhaps humans from 500 years in the future continue to improve their technology rather than humans from 5 million years in the future who probably are beyond our comprehension and whom we might think of as gods.
Or maybe we have just forgotten to look for angel’s hair after sighting a low flying UFO. It is (or was), a solid piece of evidence and offered real information on UFO occupants and their flying machines. Maybe angel’s hair is due for a comeback!
