    Lengthy. Interesting. From Observer/Guardian:

    Life on Earth… but not as we know it
    Never mind aliens in outer space. Some scientists believe we may be sharing the
    planet with 'weird' lifeforms that are so different from our own they're invisible to us

    Thanks for posting... it has prompted me to go through my old Valley of Fire images to see if I caught any of it (desert varnish) on camera. :)

    Wow, that stuff is all over the rocks within the Valley of Fire park... when I pulled open my RAW files I instantly spied it! This has really, really piqued my interest.
