Baby Spiders fall from the sky, cover the ground with “angel hair” in Australia

Citizens of Albury in South Wales, Australia, witnessed baby spiders and their webs completely covering the ground. A rare occurrence took place, called “ballooning” in which spiders float down from the sky. This happens during May and August in the outback when “spiders throw their webs up into the air, moving in large formations through the sky.” Keith Basterfield, who has taken great interest in these balloonings, says that you know one has taken place if you see long threads, or “angel hair” covering buildings, telephone poles, and power lines.
