Today’s strange thing is phosphorescent phytoplankton. You may have seen pictures of glowing waves from San Diego and other areas around the word. This happens due to the phosphorescent phytoplankton and it’s bioluminescent qualities.
Phytoplankton are tiny plants that live all across the ocean and are the foundation of oceanic food chains.
They can be seen from space and often can be quite beautiful, especially when swirling about in the water.
This is one of those strange things that is also amazingly beautiful.
For anyone who’s interested and has a chance to get to San Diego, here’s a guide on The Circumference about visiting when the bioluminescent Red Tide will be happening. You can also find more information and great images there and on this Huffington Post articles about the glowing waves in San Diego. You can find a video of the phenomenon here.
Has anyone had the chance to witness this somewhere?
