Star Jelly

Mystery jelly baffles experts
MYSTERIOUS goo, which inspired cult horror movie The Blob, is advancing across the English countryside.

Scientists are baffled by the piles of translucent jelly which has bewildered experts for hundreds of years.

Walkers have spotted it on the Yorkshire moors just days after it appeared in the Lake District.

The gloop is thought to be star jelly which according to folklore is deposits from a meteor shower and was first reported in the 14th century. Another theory is that it is the remains of frogs, toads or worms.
