Spiders 'n mites

Post by tangodelta »

All -
since the excitement seems to be dying down for some - I'd like to collect any Stardust images of what looks like tiny spiders or mites. I've been doing some reading - mites can "balloon" up to 3000 meters on strands of silk they spin. They've been found as far as the South Pole. Who knows - maybe with enough electric charge on their thread and a strong electric field in a thunderstorm or sprite, they do make it into space. (Or, maybe they even hitched a ride on Stardust!....either way, I don't think they'd last very long!) Anyway, over the year I've seen some images that do look a lot like spiders and mites, so if you find any, please post them here.
