WATCH: Nightmare comes to life as spiders appear to fall from the sky
As far as bad omens go, spiders raining from the sky is probably somewhere up there with locusts eating your first-born.
A Brazilian man by the name of João Pedro Martinelli Fonseca was met by the horrifying vista while travelling through rural Brazil last weekend, and even managed to captured the horrifying sight on camera — so we can all marvel at it from a safe, spider-free distance.
Thankfully though, it wasn't a case of the clouds opening up and spiders somehow hurtling towards planet earth. Instead, the species, parawixia bistriata, is a rare kind of spider that builds extremely fine and extremely large webs — webs that are virtually invisible to the naked eye.
Check out the short clip below (and no, those aren't specks of dust on your screen).
The webs in the video are connected by bushes and trees and spun across the spaces in between, giving the impression that the spiders are simply hovering in the sky.
Which is terrifying, but at least we know why it's happening. Thankfully, this particular kind of spider isn't venomous so... let's be thankful for that.
