    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......:)

    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

Jellyfish Lake is a marine lake located on Eil Malk island in Palau, in the Rock Islands, a group of small, mostly uninhabited islands in Palau's Southern Lagoon, between Koror and Peleliu. Jellyfish Lake is one of Palau's most famous sites (snorkeling only). It is notable for the millions of non-stinging golden jellyfish which migrate horizontally across the lake daily.

A volcanic beach off Toyama Bay glows electric blue. The light comes from female firefly squid, which spawn in spring, then die and wash ashore, their tentacles lit like millions of aquamarine LEDs. Photo by Brian Skerry
