    Firefly squids live in Toyama Bay, Japan and illuminate a blue glow produced by moonlight that has been captured in their outer membranes...I'm pretty sure I've seen either these squid or a jelly fish that glows blue in the Bahamas too.

    THE BLUE LIGHTS ON THE SEA COAST ARE GLOWING FIREFLY SQUID ON THE BEACH OF TOYAMA, JAPAN. EACH TENACLE HAS A ORGAN CALLED A PHOTOPHORE, WHICH PRODUCES LIGHT. WHEN FLASHED THESE LIGHTS ATTRACT SMALL FISH, ON WHICH THE SQUID CAN FEED. WOW, MUST BE AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL SIGHT......:)

Extreme diver Norbert Wu's Journey into the Antarctic underworld: Showing a medusa or jelly (Desmonema glaciale). It lives near the surface and the bell can reach over one meter in diameter. It is incredibly intricate and beautiful though.

The firefly squid because of tiny "photophores in their bodies, they are causing this beautiful bioluminescent phenomenon in Toyama Bay, Japan. Tiny photophores can be found by thousands in the squid’s body, creating the ability to emit light. The firefly squid normally are living at 1200 feet underwater, but waves in the Toyama bay pushes them to the surface, from March to June." -Morgan ABBOU

Sleepy Time This was taken at Turtle Beach on the North Shore of Oahu.

"Here come real stars to fill the upper skies, And here on earth come emulating flies, That though they never equal stars in size, (And they were never really stars at heart) Achieve at times a very star-like start. Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.” ― Robert Frost, The Poetry of Robert Frost
