A massive "bloom" of ladybugs appeared as a weather pattern on the radar screens of the National Weather Service's San Diego bureau on Tuesday night, and it took them a minute to figure out what it was.

The National Weather Service in San Diego caught this large cloud of ladybugs on their radar moving through Southern California.

Rather, they're spread throughout the sky, flying at between 1524 and 2743 metres high, with the most concentrated mass about 16km wide. Though the ladybug bloom seemingly covered an area measuring 80 miles wide, the insects were most concentrated in a 10-mile-wide portion.
