It might surprise you, but one of the coolest things that happen on earth is a natural phenomenon, although it looks fake. Take this beach, for example. All these starlets are not the result of a good job of Photoshop. Mother Nature can do things really incredible.

This incredible show happens on the island of Vaadhoo, in the Maldives, as a result of phytoplankton.

Phytoplankton causes bioluminescence, or biological light.

The “dinoflagellates” are a special type of phytoplankton and cause this blue light through a special membrane that responds to electrical signals.

These phosphorescent waves are amazing.

We would pay anything to see these waves phosphorescent in person, in this tropical paradise. I never thought to get to say a thing: but the phytoplankton that’s cool!
