Curious if true

Fort records falls of viscid substance in connection with meteoritic phenomena, as cataloged by R. P. Greg, in the years 1652, 1686, 1718, 1796, 1811, 1819 and 1844. In the Report of the British Association, 1855-94, Greg writes that on the night of Oct. 8, 1844, two people near Coblenz saw “a luminous body fall close to them. They returned next morning and found a gelatinous mass of grayish color.”

Huddled together like a flock of wild geese

The (1877-152) Report of the British Association gives an account of a “group of ‘meteors’ that traveled with ‘remarkable slowness’,” in sight for about three minutes. They “left no train,” were “seemingly huddled together like a flock of wild geese,” and moved “with the same velocity and grace of regularity.”
