There has been yet another incident in which a large mass of ice falls from the sky with no obvious cause. In this case it landed in Busby in eastern
It struck the ground with such force that it created an impact crater,
indicating that it was at or near terminal velocity; meaning that it fell from
some considerable height. This happened in the Renfrewshire, Scotland . It has
damaged her lawn, but she has spare turf that can repair it. She is just
relieved that it didn't hit the house, or her dog or children, see: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-scotland-41403130/huge-ice-block-falls-from-sky-into-family-s-garden.
Did anybody retrieve a sample of the ice and put it somewhere cold where it can
be preserved before it melted? The idea that it fell from an aeroplane is an assumption; it is
not a known fact. Ice bombs can fall from aircraft, caused by frozen rainwater
or leaks in their plumbing, but they can usually be identified as such. Many
ice bombs are very mysterious with unusual layers in them and it is not known
how they formed. They do not appear to be freak giant hailstones. This
programme is a good introduction to the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLGp6Z_WsD0.
