Man researching 'star jelly' in his backyard

Posted: Updated:
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. -

Bryan Rodrigues says he found strange clear spheres at his apartment complex in Rumford, and is trying to find out what they are.

"It doesn't look biological to me because it's so perfectly clear. It's a mystery. So I guess it has to be analyzed," he said.

NBC 10's Alison Bologna found the spheres on the ground in the shade. Rodrigues collected a bunch, cleaned them off and wasn't afraid to hold them in his hand.

"I'm still around," he said.

Rodrigues said there's no strange smell to the 50 or so that he's found. He said they feel like small balls of jelly, but aren't sticky.

Rodrigues said he called NBC 10, and sent emails to different biology and chemistry professors at Brown University. He hasn't heard anything yet.
