Red Tide, Blue Glow Light Up San Diego Beaches

San Diego's night-time surf glowing with aqua colored light as bioluminescence takes hold Bioluminescent bloom lights up waves

The rare phenomenon, known as bioluminescence, stretches about 28 kilometres along the coast and scientists are not sure how long it will last.

The phenomenon is caused by an algae bloom called bioluminescent phytoplankton that lights up when the microorganisms move through the sea as the waves crashes.

The San Diego coast is hosting a red tide, which is a bloom involving these single-cell organisms that can make the water appear red. Scripps says this particular red tide in the San Diego area is not known to be toxic, but some people may be sensitive to contact with it.

Stephen Bay, a Southern Californian based photographer, snagged a picture of the illuminating visual on Monday at Torrey Pines.

A red tide that developed off San Diego over the past few days is producing one of nature's small but grand spectacles: bioluminescent light in the ocean, the Union-Tribune reported. 'It really was a bright blue color that was just fantastic to look at'.

Causing a red tide during the day, phytoplankton equipped with their own "sunscreen" gather near the shore at midday to catch more light. It was a bioluminescent that added colour to the waters. "In fact, they are the major source of energy that fuels the ocean food web", NOAA noted. HABs also include blooms of non-toxic species that have harmful effects on marine ecosystems.

Bioluminescence from a red tide turns breaking waves a stunning, yet eerie shade of blue.
