Red Rain

New Scientist, 4/3/06, reports in detail on the fact that red rain - somewhat like blood - has been falling in Kerala in southern India.

One scientist is publishing a serious scientific paper arguing that the rain contains red alien "cells", which may have come to Earth aboard a meteor.

Others are sceptical, but their explanations seem scarcely less believable:
[Charles] Cockell takes a wild guess that maybe a meteor explosion massacred a flock of bats, splattering their blood in all directions.
