The Waterford Incident
Aired May 7, 1978
A strange sighting is reported by several students at Waterford Military Academy, headed by Col. Max Delany. The boys claim a saucer flew over their school, discharging strands of an 'angel hair' substance that turned their hands green when they touched it, and the military school becomes enveloped in a strange web-like substance left behind by the UFO. Gatlin and Fitz investigate the incident, and also a case told to them by astronomer Dr. Virginia Paulson, who puts them in touch with Darryl Biggs, a young man who sighted a triangular-shaped vehicle in the woods while hunting. Afraid of losing his job because of his bizarre story, Biggs reluctantly tells Gatlin and Fitz how an unearthly alien robot emerged from the ship and attacked him.

We have had flyovers through the years trying to get "us" to bite. I don't know why this is. All I can tell you is that 82_28 is certain that this joint is made up of very real people and people that I intrinsically love. The WOO shit has basically disappeared. We SHOO'D THEM AWAY. It's pretty damned easy when you use rigour and intuition. We might not be right, but we are here.
Who was that joker with the fucking lines on Mars? There was also some clown trying to get us to bite on some kind of thin threads falling from the sky, I think in Texas. It would be funny if at least it wasn't.
Er... There were some kind of anomolous thin white threads falling from the sky in Austin Tx a few years back. Super sticky stuff, too. In some parts of Austin it covered everything , for several months, in a layer of nearly unwashable gunk. The papes reported that the build up was due to an unusually high amount of tree pollen, but I wasn't buying it. No clue what it could have been, but nearly everyone I talked to about it agreed that it was strange and unprecedented. So, not sure what sort of theories the poster you are refering to was trying to pitch, but it may not have been entirely meritless. It's not the sort of thing I'd normally bring up here. Or anywhere, for that matter.
Star Jelly and Angel Hair mythology definitely pre-date chemtrail theories, and both are associated with UFO phenomena. Both wikipedia entries give a nice attempt for skepticism but most examples lead to more questions than answers.
There was s good chapter on angel hair in one of my mother's paranormal research books dating from the 60's or early 70's, I wish that information was available on the internet.
