It remains unsolved to this day.
Everything from Government Conspiracy to Aliens has been lauded over this event, but it seems to only have happened once, but may have been a 'precursor event' or one in which something was tested on a cross section of the population to gauge the effectiveness of something which would at a later date bee delivered to a greater segment of the Worlds Population. However that is just theory based on conjecture.
"The townspeople of Oakville, Washington, were in for a surprise on August 7, 1994. Instead of their usual downpour of rain, the inhabitants of the small town witnessed countless gelatinous blobs falling from the sky. Once the globs fell, almost everyone in Oakville started to develop severe, flu-like symptoms that lasted anywhere from 7 weeks to 3 months. Finally, after exposure to the goo caused his mother to fall ill, one resident sent a sample of the blobs for testing. What the technicians discovered was shocking – the globs contained human white blood cells. The substance was then brought to the State Department of Health of Washington for further analysis. With another startling reveal, they discovered that the gelatinous blobs had two types of bacteria, one of which is found in the human digestive system. However, no one could successfully identify the blob, and how they were connected to the mysterious sickness that plagued the town."And no this isn't a hoax either, Unsolved Mysteries, yeah you know that American TV Show with a prediliction for things Unsolved...
Also is or was on the case as it may be:
"The sample was quickly sent to the Washington State Department of Health for further study. Mike McDowell, a microbiologist at the department, noted that the substance was teeming with two species of bacteria, one of which lives in the human digestive system. Because of Mike's findings, the substance was initially speculated to be human waste from an airplane, but Federal Aviation Administration regulations require waste from airplanes to be dyed blue, while the substance was perfectly clear. Furthermore, regulations forbid pilots from releasing this "blue ice" in mid-flight. Nearly a year after Dotty fell ill, she mailed a sample of the substance she had stored in her freezer to AmTest Laboratories, a private research lab. There, while analyzing the sample, Tim Davis, another microbiologist, believed he saw an eukaryotic cell; complex, nucleus-containing cells that are present in most living creatures. This meant that the substance is or had been alive. One theory as to the rain's origins was that one of the military's naval bombing runs at sea had accidentally destroyed a school of jellyfish and sent their pieces flying into the atmosphere, (Star Jelly) where they settled in Oakville, 50 miles inland. The distance the jellyfish parts would have to travel, the number of times the rain fell, and the lack of any rotting smell in the substance put this theory in doubt to most residents. While the air force confirms that they were doing practice bombing runs over the Pacific in August 1994, they deny knowledge of the substance or any involvement in creating or dispersing it. The locals of Oakville are skeptical of this; prior to the rain, many Oakville residents noticed a significant - almost daily - amount of slow-moving military aircraft in the skies above their town. Some believe Oakville was the site of a military experiment, designed to test a new biological weapon or to test the possible damage a biological attack on US soil could do.Funny how things just 'seem' to dissapear!
No samples of the substance exist today."
