THE mystery behind a bizarre kind of ‘star jelly’ which has been invading gardens may have been solved.
It appears the mounds of weird gloop found in a Golcar garden last month, right, and on Marsden Moor in October, left, are not likely to be from outer space but much closer to home.
The translucent jelly is most probably the remnants of frog spawn rather than the remnants of meteorites, known as ‘star jelly’.
The solution comes courtesy of Ken Ralphs, of Marsden.
Is it frogspawn or space goo? Compare these photos and see what you think.
