The Rain of Fish is common in Honduran Folklore. It occurs in the Departamento de Yoro, between the months of May and July. Witnesses of this phenomenon state that it begins with a dark cloud in the sky followed by lightning, thunder, strong winds and heavy rain for 2 to 3 hours. Once the rain has stopped, hundreds of living fish are found on the ground. People take the fish home to cook and eat them. Since 1998 a festival known as "Festival de la Lluvia de Peces" (Rain of Fish Festival) is celebrated every year in the city of Yoro, Departamento de Yoro, Honduras.

In the Depatmento de Yoro of Honduras a yearly rain of fish has been puzzling scientists for years. No one has yet explained why, or how this rain occurs, including a research team from National Geographic who documented the 'rainfall' in the 1970's.

Maybe you would be lucky and you see it yourself!
