Bizarre discoveries in the most unexpected places

A 1,600-year-old Roman chalice known as the Lycurgus Cup changes colour depending on which side of it light is shining through.

Residents in Yoro, Honduras, see hundreds of fish on the streets every year. This despite Yoro's distance from the ocean being many miles.

Up until a leopard shark dropped from the sky, the day at the San Juan Hills Golf Club in California appeared to be ordinary.

Whale fossils were discovered by construction workers in 1849 at a Vermont property. The discovery was made roughly 200 miles (322 km) from the ocean, which is strange.
The estimated age of the fossils is 12,500 years.

A big meteorite struck France in 1864. One of the oldest meteorites ever discovered on Earth, the Orgueil meteorite was large.
Organic material, according to scientists, was discovered in the rock. However, later research showed that these were "placed" in the meteorite on purpose back in the 19th century.
