Hello everyone. I am new here and wonder if anybody has ever experienced or heard of metalic " 🙄 "tinsel" type material falling from the sky in the early/mid 1960's? 🙄 My older brother told me recently he recalls such material falling into our yard {central VA} at that time. He says I picked some of it off the ground and played with it when I was a child. We are both in our 50's now and it could explain a mysterious illness I had at the time. Germ warfare? I don't know but am eager to hear if anyone has heard of this. Thanks to all! Stan 😀

Welcome to the Blackvault.

Are you near any military airbase where the tinsel is from aircraft counter measures they deploy for incoming missiles? Could be testing or maneuvers, they shoot them out of the fuselage to fool missiles at the last second to screw up the missile heat seeking devises?

Yes. Close {100 miles or less by air} to several. I'm not familiar with the material you are referring to. This "tinsel" I'm talking about was described as being very similar the type people used to buy in packages and drape each piece on Christmas trees. I was also told it had a fine whitish powder on it. Could this be the same thing? Thank you greeney!

My Dad tells me that this tinsel was even used in WWII as a radar counter measure. Their bombers could disperse the material. It wasn't hazardous and is not extraterrestrial.

Thank you Taeko for your response. I will now take your information and continue my research, along with others. I was about 3 years old and consulted with my brother who was about 10 years old and remembers the incident. He says there were many times this happened at that time they resembled pom-poms {pon-ponssp?} I don"t know. At any rate, I was hospitalized for weeks with something that was never diagnosed. Quarantined, Everything in my room incinerated after I was released. What happened? What caused this? They even removed my healthy appendics, performed appendectomy for no reason. I have to figure this out.
