Thousands of live earthworms have been falling from the sky in Norway – a rare phenomenon being reported across large swathes of the south of the country.
A biology teacher discovered the worms on the surface of the snow while he was skiing in the mountains near Bergen at the weekend.
Numerous reports have been coming in after he told his story, and there have been sightings of worm rainfall.
The biology teacher told The Local: ‘It’s a very rare phenomenon.
He said he found reports of the same strange phenomenon taking place in Sweden in the 1920s.
‘It’s difficult to say how many times it happens, but it has only been reported a very few times.’
This rain of worms isn’t confined to Norway either, with a similar case reported at a Scottish Academy secondary school in 2011.
According to a report by STV, a teacher and his students had to take cover during a game of football after worms started falling from the sky.
Teacher David Crichton said: “We were out playing football and had just done our warm up and were about to start the next part of the lesson.
“We started hearing this wee thudding noise on the ground. There were about 20 worms already on the ground at this point.”
Crichton told STV he and his colleagues counted 120 worms across the astroturf pitch following the rainfall.
The phenomenon remains a mystery.
