If the sun is practically blocked out by the webs of baby spiders falling from the skies, it will certainly be regarded as most people’s worst nightmare. However, for an Australian town called Goulburn, it was nothing less than a horrifying reality.
Locals complained earlier this month that the “rain” was appalling due to tiny spiders making nests in people’s hair and even beards. Ian Watson, a resident of Goulburn, said: “The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred metres into the sky.”
As creepy as this may seem, it is not uncommon for specific areas in Australia to experience such a phenomenon. Martyn Robinson, a naturalist from the Australian Museum, explained that spiders, especially babies, use a migration technique known as ballooning to migrate to the top of trees and plants and to “parachute” down using their webs.
Luckily, due to cold overnight temperatures, all the webs generally disappeared by the time morning hit. Robinson also stated that it was unlikely that any of the species of spiders involved in this phenomenon were harmful.
