From Ben Bova's Jovian Travelogue,
|Huge balloonlike creatures called Clarke's Medusas drift in the hurricane-like winds surging across the planet. Birds that have never seen land, living out their entire lives aloft. Gossamer spider-kites that trap microscopic spores. Particles of long-chain carbon molecules that form in the clouds and sift downward, toward the global ocean below.|
(Sometimes, if you're patient, Earthling spaceships can be seen flying by!)
"It’s like Zachriel spores all over the internet."
