Mysterious video of transluscent web-like sheet draping field

White translucent sheet or web covers a field in England. The video has been posted but it provides little detail.

Strange web-like substance covers field but luckily ‘no radiation content’ found | Metro News.

In the video, which was posted to LiveLeak, the mystified man describes his findings: ‘There is a huge build-up around the lamppost.

‘Flowers totally covered. No radiation content. Totally mad.’

Is it insects or spiders? Recall this story from Australia in 2012 where spider webs covered a field during a flood. This does not look quite the same. I’m not able to find out any more about this offhand. It looks more like a frozen fog. It was uploaded to LiveLeak on Jan 23, but if so, this would not be insects in January, I’d suspect. It’s too cold. The article says it’s causing a buzz on the internet but I don’t see it which is really odd. I have found reference to Ermine moth caterpillars but this does not exactly match either. Anyone?

Update: This was posted Oct 12, 2012 to YouTube so it is NOT new. Tip: Taras Young on Twitter. But “chem web”? Here is the description (spelling uncorrected):

ChemTrail web formation 08-10-2012 at Rossington Allsaints school following first fog of the autum .The downward path of the web is evident in that the lamp posts have it on the top and it has draged down with the weight of the blanket until settling with any raised plants being covered from the top down .Deffinatly not cobwebs as the area covered is around 10,000sqmtrs and can be followed across fields in a SW direction for miles .Checked for any Gamma radiation due to solar activity shield idea but none present , At 60x mag under microscope the fine hairlike structure is evedent , my theory is that they are released and cover and rise after release in the atmosphere then fall and dry out and simply come down as dust particles , except when a fog is present where they reform into a blanket that shows up on the ground .As when the sun heats it or indeed where warmer tarmac is encounted they dry out rapidly and vanish ? Hence on the video where the concrete is in the grass no web formation is evident , as indeed it is around the field area that is encircled by a road .And village wide , the southern end has the most evidence with the northern end showing hardly any to none at all .The fields between the village and Tickhill being covered as is the school field , With the fields at Harworth also being covered , so it is around 5 miles wide and 15 to 20 miles long ?? Conclusion – They have fallen as a dust and recombined into the high altitude blanket at ground level due to the moisture content of the fog.

WHAT?

    I’m assuming this isn’t a recent video, or do the fields of England stay green with flowers in January?

      Hmm, it’s 44 in London right now, so perhaps it can be green. But I see no reason to assume that video is recent, so I wouldn’t use that to rule out the web idea.

        Nevermind, I see you’ve updated it.

    Use to see these web like covering the farm I lived on in Mt. Gambier, South Australia, in the 70’s.
    The weather there in winter, includes fog, like the situation in the story above. Seems to be a common component in a lot of these ‘fine web covering’ stories. Still have now idea what the substance was.
    Was not sticky like a spider web, and it seemed to come in overnight.
    Odd, but still naturally produced never the less.

    I like this explanation:

    https://www.metabunk.org/threads/debunked-chemwebs-mysterious-fibers-fall-from-sky-ballooning-spiders.287/

    In our yard, usually in the fall or spring, we get this explosion of baby spiders. They are teensy little things, yet somehow produce seemingly miles of silk. Get all over the place. Combine that with moisture and cold temps … it could look like that!

    Of course, one could make the argument that spiders ARE alien overlords intent on eating innocent insects, polluting our skies with their chem webs stronger than steel. But that would be paranoid!

    Hmmm… the uploader has closed their YouTube. Suspicious?
