The Australian town of Lajamanu reported two days worth of live fish falling from the sky (really). Backcountry.com reports that the remote desert town experienced two separate showers of hundreds of healthy, if not stunned, spangled perch. Theories range from tornadoes (though none were spotted in the area), to updrafts, to, of course, aliens . This is third time in less than 30 years that Lajamanu has been bombarded by fish from above.
