 >>SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - Long, floating spider webs are bobbing
 >>through the skies of Santa Cruz this week, confusing some
 >>community members concerned about biological weapons, UFOs and
 >>other phenomena.

 >>The gossamer-thin, shimmery "sky webs" are between 18 inches and
 >>several feet long, and have been seen drifting through the sky,
 >>sailing along the coastline and, at times, catching on fences or
 >>draping on trees.

 >>The webs come from young spiders that launch themselves on their
 >>homemade parachutes after hatching to be blown to a new home.

on spiders.
