They're apple snail eggs. Did you find them all in a clump up by the waterline? I also had an applesnail who laid eggs a couple times and she was the only snail in the tank. They can hold the sperm for quite a long time before they lay them (kind of like guppies do).

No, mine never hatched. The first batch were laid just above the waterline. The second batch also were above the waterline but fell off like yours did. They need to be kept moist but not under water or the embryos will drown. Here's a link to some info about them. Near the bottom of the page is info on reproduction and eggs.
