Strange alien slime appears after meteor strike

Here's your daily dose of crazy. A strange, gooey substance has been appearing all over the Somerset nature reserve that's about a thousand miles away from Russia. The mysterious substances have been showing up ever since the meteor event in Russia a few days ago. Both the tourists of the reserve, as well as the workers there, have described the slimes resembling "something living".

The strange, alien slimes are appearing all over the Somerset nature reserve in grass banks that are located away from the water's edge. The slimey substances are each about 10 centimeters (4 inches) in diameter and all of them are translucent. The reserve's team will continue to analyze the blobs for the next few days.

The local folklore says that previous sightings of the mysterious, alien slime dates all the way back to the 14th century, at least based on their records. Back in the 14th century, the strange slime always appeared shortly after a meteor shower. The locals at the time called the slime "star jelly", "astral jelly", or "astromyxin".

For now, everything is still a mystery. Unlike the 14th century, our technology is much more advanced, and an analysis by scientists could give us a clear, and probably logical, answer to what this substance really is. But until we have those answers, it's all just a guessing game. What are your theories on what this substance could be?
