Midge swarms behave “like clusters of stars”

Harpenden UK (SPX) Jan 04, 2018 Midges move with ferocious randomness, frequently subjecting themselves to accelerations of more than 10g, well beyond the limit of fighter pilots, as they duck and dive in swarms that still retain an almost paradoxical cohesiveness despite blustery wind or powerful updrafts. Collectively, midges move very differently from flocks of birds, shoals of fish or animal herds; there is no order
