Strange story from the Guardian. The headline may be a trifle misleading, though.
The mystery doesn't look any closer to being solved as far as I can see:)

They have provoked much speculation — some serious, many tongue-in-cheek.

But scientists believe they are close to solving the mystery of the blue balls that (apparently) rained down on a garden in Dorset.

Bournemouth resident Steve Hornsby reported how the sky turned dark, then yellow, then blue, transparent, "jelly-like" balls began falling out of the sky during what he thought was a hailstorm.
