rain hits Michigan town: Tar-like substance falls from the sky and
leaves residents bewildered as it covers cars, porches and driveways
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials collected samples
A city in Michigan is perplexed after a a tar-like substance has rained down on their cars, porches and driveways this week.
The black, oily substance first appeared on at least six driveways in Harrison Township on Sunday, and days later, what the material is still remains a mystery. Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials collected samples of the substance on Wednesday.
'As Michigan's Hometown Air Force, we take being a good neighbor very serious,' Brig Gen John D Slocum, commander of the 127th Wing and the Selfridge base commander told ABC News. 'We will continue to work with our local and state partner agencies to resolve this question.' Fire Chief Michael Lopez told Fox 2 Detroit that the airbase will still investigate. 'It does not appear to be a fuel substance at all and so we did confirm that but it appears as though it came from an aircraft but we haven't confirmed that but we did turn it over to Selfridge to investigate,' he said. A Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officer said it could be at least a week before the organization discovers what the substance is.

|Purple Spheres of the Arizona Desert
Mystery: No one seems to what these purple spheres in the desert are where they came from
Early this year, a woman named Geraldine Vargas and her husband were walking through the desert near their home in Tucson, Arizona, when they came across a phenomenon that, so far, has completely baffled scientists. They discovered a large patch of land covered in strange, purple spheres with no perceivable explanation for what they were or how they came to be.
They appear to be a jelly-like fungus, but botanists in Arizona have so far been completely stumped as to their cause or composition. The spheres ooze a liquid substance and some people have speculated that they must be of an extraterrestrial origin considering nothing like them has ever been seen in the area, and no one has the slightest clue how they came to be there in the first place.

Tuscon locals are baffled by the appearance of thousands of tiny, purple sphere that have appeared in the middle of a desert. Geradine Vargas and her husband discovered the strange collection Sunday while on a walk. 'We were taking photos around the area and we just.... I mean, how could you miss this?' Geradine said. 'It was just like glittering in the sun.'
It's just one of those things that you've never seen before.' Some of the spheres were watery and others translucent. They were completed isolated from the rest of the desert terrain.
'We did email a friend of ours who's a zoologist, but she didn't know,' Gerardine told reporters at KGUN-9. 'I mean, she didn't seem to recognize what it was.' The news station checked out the spheres, reporting that they were like 'gooey marbles that ooze out a water substance when squished.'
Darlene Buhrow, director of marketing for Tucson Botanical Gardens said that after speaking to a botanist learned that, if the spheres are naturally occurring, they could be a slime mold or jelly fungus. Other suggest they are a product, like Deco Beads which are small, colored, water-filled balls designed to keep plants hydrated. Though that does little to explain why thousands of them would have been put in the desert.
Possibilities: Some have speculated that the spheres could be a slime mold or jelly fungus
or a man-made product for plant hydration
Isolated: Everyone from botanists to tv crews has speculated on the sphere's origin
