Sea Sparkle Is Cloaking Hong Kong's Shorelines In An Ethereal Blue Glow

On the night of January 22nd, the shores of Hong Kong glowed blue with wave upon wave of beautiful bioluminescent water in a phenomenon commonly known as Sea Sparkle. However, this magical display, caused by blooms of a microscopic dinoflagellate called Noctiluca scintillans, was brought on by something less-than-inspiring: environmental pollution.   Noctiluca glow when they’re disturbed, which is why the blooms are primarily visible on the shores, where they’re […]

It’s easy to lose perspective in our day-to-day. To get stuck in the minutia and forget that we’re part of something much bigger called the Earth, which is part of something much bigger called the solar system, which is part of something MUCH bigger called the Milky Way galaxy… you get the picture.   But while the vastness of the universe is difficult to truly capture in a photograph, the […]
