Chem-webs In Thames

By Wayne K., 7 May 2017

On Tuesday, the 18th of April this year in the sleepy little gold-rush town of Thames, which is at the southwestern end of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand’s North Island, I was taking my mum out for a walk along the foreshore.  It was such a perfect day, until I noticed a long white stringy thread sail by in the air.

When we looked up, we saw that the mostly clear blue sky was full of fibers descending.  I estimated that some were around 10 meters or more in length, and they were landing everywhere, as well as hanging off power lines and trees.

The threads also had some foamy stuff in clumps attached, like a detergent foam, and a passer-by commented that people were seeing a lot of it up at the Pak’ n Save car park landing on the cars.

I was so shocked at the sight of it, I grabbed my camera after I got home and took some pictures of it, as well as picking up some samples on a stick, since I’d read about this happening elsewhere in the world and they always warned not to touch it if you find it, and some people had become sick after encountering it.  It maybe a coincidence, but I did feel ill the night after I touched it.  I had picked it off my clothes.
By the late afternoon, the amount of it hanging off some of the power lines was incredible, with some really long ones stretching between power poles and trees.
Somebody I spoke to reckoned it was cobwebs and a common occurrence, but there weren’t any spiders visible, and it seemed a bit thick for cobweb material…it was more like string, as the photos show.
Most of it was gone after it rained, but a few threads were still visible days later in the power lines and trees.
Didn’t see any mention of it in the local paper.

    Was a sample taken and tested to confirm if it was synthetic?

    Yes some members of my family saw them too… they travelled down to Tauranga from Manaia on that day & said that they were over the power lines & very thick in places. Someone else also mentioned that they’d seen them over at Miranda too.

    Alert friends in Victoria, Australia, have reported numerous sightings of the same phenomenon in just the past week ( May 1st thru to the 7th, 2017 )
    I am observing these fibers regularly here in North Canterbury, and record my sightings on camera.

    Yep, that does NOT look like your average spiderweb material.

    Goassamer threads from spiders – “Ballooning” (sometimes referred to as “kiting”. They move through the air by releasing one or more gossamer threads to catch the wind. It’s nothing new, nor is it suspicious.

    And you wont read about it in Newspapers for very good reasons…….its called media blackout to keep you in the dark.
