Red tide causing bioluminescence at San Diego beaches …GO SEE IT!!!

YOU HAVE TO MAKE AN EFFORT TO GO SEE THIS…

IT’S AMAZING….

 TAKE THE KIDS,GRANDMA ,the NEIGHBORS!!!

 

 

A strong red tide along the San Diego County coastline is causing brilliant neon blue bioluminescence that’s visible at night as tiny light-producing organisms get stirred up as the waves break.

Joe Collon took these on his iPhone while flying over the ocean near Torrey Pines Saturday.

and at night the blue glow….

 

“If you’ve ever seen a firefly, you have encountered a bioluminescent organism. In the ocean, bioluminescence is not as rare as you might think. In fact, most types of animals, from bacteria to sharks, include some bioluminescent members. Also, bioluminescent are found throughout marine habitats, from the ocean surface to the deep sea floor.

If you want to go take a look ,after dark off Torrey Pines would be the best location… This is one of the brightest  occurances of the  bioluminescent in the past 26 years. No moon makes the viewing easier as well…

Breaking surf along the San Diego coastline is causing tiny organisms to briefly produce brilliant neon blue flashes.

  1. What are the best beaches to see the red tide at night in San Diego?

  2. DId you take the shots from the air? I’m thinking about going up tonight or tomorrow to look for the blue glow, but can’t tell how noticeable it would be from the air. Looks like it might be dim enough that you basically want to be on shore. Thoughts?

    Thanks.
