        The village of Kivalina Alaska is trying to figure out why a rust-colored substance washed on shore starting Wednesday night.
        Officials don’t know what it is or where it came from -- It is not man made, it is not a petroleum substance or a form of sea life.


        I wonder if it's Orange Julius?

          It looks quite horrible Nan.  There is probably a simple explanation (hopefully)

          Time to get out the laboratory equipment and get to the bottom of it.

          Maybe it's last Halloween's pumpkin!

          its very strange....
          they have begun conducting some tests on it, but have still not identified it yet.

          they said they were not sure, but they think it may be airborne, because the also found some on a couple of rooftops, and some buckets that they use to collect rain in.

          interesting.  i am guessing that it is volcanic...alaska has over 100 volcanoes, and 1 just erupted a few days ago near the aleutian islands.  i don't know if that's anywhere near there or not.

          nan...your guess of orange julius really cracked me up , i always loved those    suny

          Very scary indeed.
          Could be prehistoric or like a few have alluded to, not of this earth.
          We have always assumed, from movies, aliens are either humanoid or insectoid.
          In Michael Crichton's book "The Andromeda Strain" he writes the previous sentence.
          He further explains that an aliens could be really small, possible microscopic (like a virus) or a non corporeal body of mist, possibly even something that is in four dimensions.
          In this area, Mono Lake has been drying up over the years. In the dry lake bed, there are microscopic protozoan that haven't been in out atmosphere for several million years.
          How do we know it wasn't viruses that killed the dinosaurs? Could be just my imagination.

          MYSTERY SOLVED!

          "We now think these are some sort of small crustacean egg or embryo, with the lipid oil droplet in the middle causing the orange color," Jeep Rice, a lead scientist at the Juneau laboratory, said in a news release.

          The material is sticky, but becomes a powder when dried, said Julie Speegle, a spokeswoman for NOAA's Fisheries Service in Alaska.

          Scientists who made the preliminary identification are confident that they are correct, Speegle said.

          "I would say we're pretty darn sure that they're microscopic eggs," she said. "We just don't know what species."

          To get a more precise identification, Speegle said, scientists at the Auke Bay lab have sent samples to NOAA's Center for Coastal Environmental Health and Biomolecular Research in Charleston, South Carolina.

          "As soon as they receive a sample, they will be doing a more in-depth analysis," she said.



          "So this is natural. It is not chemical pollution; it is not a man-made substance," Rice said.

          No, they didn't give an explanation, but from this bit of info...:

          "It was really light, a powdery look to it, and it was just floating on there, all bunched up together," Austin Swan, who waded out into the lake to scoop up the material, told the Independent. "It looked like it could blow away very easily." and "The material is sticky, but becomes a powder when dried, said Julie Speegle, a spokeswoman for NOAA's Fisheries Service in Alaska."

          ... I would guess that the substance dried, became powdery, got swept up in the air, and when it rained, the powder fell back down landing on the rooftops and ending up in the rain buckets.  Just like powdered milk when you add water, it reconstituted into the goo again.

          Or it could be alien spores and we are all doomed to host little alien egglings and have them come popping out of us when they hatch.  Only time will tell.
