National Geographic: Glowing Beaches

Blue Glowing Light Beaches

We have highlighted a surfer using LED lights to surf in the middle of the night – creating an amazing sight. Well, over in the Maldives the beaches and ocean glows on its own thanks to:

“The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton” – National Geographic

These amazing glowing spectacles have also been seen on the beaches of California (1st photo below), in the middle of the ocean (2nd photo below), and on the shores of India (3rd photo below).
