"The spawning season of the firefly squid runs from March to May. During this time, the squid can be seen gathering in large numbers in Toyama Bay in Japan. Toyama Bay lies above a deep, v-shaped canyon in which the sea floor drops away suddenly. The flow of the ocean currents usually wells up from the bottom of this canyon and pushes the squid to the surface.

glowing jellyfish in Toyama, Japan; the blue lights on the sea coast are glowing firefly squid
DID IT! (not in Japan, though, but at a local beach during a rare red tide...) totally worth it to go see this incredible sight even if it's a couple hours away. It is like the Aurora Borealis for water! This photo ogre Japan, Toyama, the blue lights on the sea coast are the glowing firefly squid.
The glowing firefly squid are pushed to the shore's edge by the current while spawning in the bay of Toyama, Japan... Everyone who really knows me also knows how I feel about jellyfish! Ah
gulf of alaska: "glacial rivers pour out into the larger body of water, they’re picked up by ocean currents...and circulate there. this is one of the primary methods that iron - found in the clay and sediment of the glacial runoff - is transported to iron-deprived regions in the middle of the gulf of alaska...shows the plume of water pouring out from one of these sediment-rich rivers and meeting with the general ocean water. it’s also a falsehood that these two types of water don’t mix at all."

Aurora Borealis From Space | Seeing aurora borealis from space is a sight only a few astronauts ... Behold, the wonders in outer space.
July 2010 Above Aurora Australis Credit: ISS Expedition 23 Crew, ISAL, NASA On May 29, looking southward from a vantage point about 350 kilometers above the southern Indian Ocean, astronauts onboard the International Space Station watched this enormous, green ribbon shimmering below. Known as aurora australis or southern lights, the shifting, luminous bands are commonly seen at high northern latitudes as well, there known as the aurora borealis or northern lights.
This snaking green aurora was the result of a geomagnetic storm that was most likely caused by a coronal mass ejection from the Sun on May 24, 2010. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station captured this picture of the light show as they orbited over the Southern Indian Ocean at an altitude of 220 miles (350 kilometers), with the astronaut observer most likely looking towards Antarctica (not visible) and the South Pole. The aurora has a sinuous ribbon ..

A strange underwater phenomenon called “icicle of death” has been filmed by BBC crew in Antarctica. Equipped with high end timelapse cameras, the group recorded salt water being excluded from the sea ice and sinking down to the ocean floor. The temperature of this brine is below 0C, causing water to freeze in an icy casing called “brinicle.” When “brinicle” met the sea bed, a web of ice formed that froze everything it touched, including sea urchins and starfish.
Brinicles! Who knew? Freeze little sea creatures in their path. Poor little starfish. people-and-things-that-scare-me
Strange Natural Phenomena | Braynikl (finger of death)
For the first time ever, the formation of a Brinicle under the Antarctic sea has been filmed, a phenomenon they called "Icicle of Death."

Aerial photo of desert rivers in Baja California Peninsula of Mexico, shows the fractalic forms of nature. The scale is impossible to assess. Its pattern is similar to that of tree branches, demonstrating how similar shapes recur in different settings. It brings to mind the Chinese concept of Li, incorporated into their word for physics.

Kjeragbolten is a 5 m³ boulder wedged in a mountain crevasse by the edge of the Kjerag mountain (59°2′0.83″N 6°35′32.79″E) in Norawy. It is possible to walk onto the rock without any equipment, but there is a direct 241 m drop below and then another 735m gradient down to Lysefjorden. The name means "Kjerag Boulder" or "Kjerag Bolt". bucket list if I ever had one

A fossilized radiolarian from the Barbados Islands. Radiolaria are single-celled, amoeboid protozoa that produce intricate mineral skeletons, typically with a central capsule dividing the cell into inner and outer portions, called endoplasm and ectoplasm. They are found as zooplankton throughout the ocean, and their skeletal remains cover large portions of the ocean bottom as radiolarian ooze.

The flower-hat jellyfish. Medusa is the word for jellyfish in: Greek, Finnish, Portuguese, Romanian, Hebrew, Serbian, Croatian, Spanish, French, Italian, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Russian, and Bulgarian. The Arctic Lion’s mane jellyfish is one of the longest known animals and the largest recorded specimen had a bell (body) with a diameter of 2.3 m (7 feet 6 inches) and the tentacles reached 36.5 m (120 feet). It was found washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870.
