A field of spider webs in Australia
Cloudy with a chance of arachnophobia? Not quite. “Spider rain”, namely the phenomenon in the photo, is not about spiders falling from the sky, because that would be really creepy! Spider rain refers to a phenomenon, first recorded in 1914 in Australia, which usually takes place in May or August, after a heavy rainfall. According to Keith Basterfield of South Australia, who has been studying this phenomenon for more than 15 years, it’s actually about baby spiders in search of food like mosquitoes, that “throw out a protein-based thread of spider’s web from their body, they extend it into the air, the wind catches it and they take off and use it as a parachute”.
