Massive Ladybug Swarm Appears On Weather Radar

The large green blob that appeared on a Southern California weather radar isn't a thunderstorm or tornado moving into the region.

The massive 80-mile wide image on the National Weather Service’s radar is a massive swarm of ladybugs called a "Bloom".

Meteorologist Joe Dandrea says the array of bugs are spread throughout the sky, flying between 5,000 and 9,000 feet.

The radar indicates that the most concentrated group of the beetles is about 10 miles wide.
