I am captivated by the magical glowing tide that has been seen in California and other places in the world. Apparently the blue glow is caused by algae blooms commonly referred to as a “red tide.” The organism, a phytoplankton called Lingulodinium polyedrum turns the water a brownish-red color in the daytime, but a beautiful glowing blue at night.
I think it looks like something from a fairy tale or the movie Avatar.
If this magical surf was near me, I would go to the beach all night, every night, to enjoy it. But I must be content at observe it through pictures and videos. Here is a video of the beautiful glowing blue surf in 2011 at San Diego, California:
