Glowing Ocean

By: Alex Cherney


Region: Australia and Pacific

Site: Victoria - Australia

Spot: Wilsons Promontory National Park

Date: January 2013

Tiny single celled marine micro-organisms Noctiluca scintilantis use a chemical reaction to produce electric blue glow under the starry Australian sky. Constellation Orion, Aldebaran and bright planet Jupiter are prominent in the sky above the coastline at southeastern Australia. See this view in a timelapse motion. Alex Cherney,
