#332125 Bioluminescence in San Diego, Red Tide makes Avatar footsteps

Posted by pkdk on 30 May 2013 - 03:35 PM

In 2011 there was an unusual spectacular plankton bloom in San Diego, also called a Red Tide (as it looks red during the day)

At night these algae give off a blue light, bioluminescence, when they are disturbed, creating this real world Avatar-like footsteps.

 

Enjoy.
