Strange air-borne plant/weed?

Asked July 30, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

I have a strange stringy weed that I found at first on my wisteria and cut it off and put it in a ziplock bag. Now I have noticed it growing in my porch light fixture - weird! See attached photo. It is not yellow like dodder, which is everywhere this time of year.
What is it and should I be concerned?
