An article from discovery.com in 2009 recounted a similar enigma in Manhattan. In this instance, large globules of soap foam were spotted falling from the sky. Upon investigation, it was learned that maintenance workers were cleaning a ventilation system on the roof of a nearby skyscraper. Foam nearly fits the description of what the officers saw that night in 1950: It is light enough to descend from the sky slowly, its buoyant composition would lend it a jiggle some might call pulsating, and the tiny bubbles would produce a scintillating effect when the officers shone their flashlights on it. Furthermore, it would dissolve quickly and leave behind a sticky residue in ones hands should it be handled. Very large chunks of a similar soapy substance were recorded blowing around the Doukkala region of Morocco in 2016. Some said industrial soap foam was responsible here as well. Others theorized it was seafoam washed inland on strong breezes.
