    growth on glass

    I have little tiny things...star like... growing on my glass. They are a round dot in the middle and five little legs on the outside and they are actually getting bigger. It looks more like a spider than a starfish. When I first noticed them i cleaned the glass and now some have come back.
    What could it be?
