I Captured The Mysterious Glowing Sea In Japan

This is what happens on the earth. In spring, but not every year, bioluminescent firefly squid illuminate the Toyama Bay, Japan.

As I live in the city, you may think it is easy for me to encounter the phenomena, but it’s not. For once in my life I succeeded in capturing the stunning show. Even with recent science, nobody can explain when and why the squid come together to show us the marvel.

Is this a mass die-off; do the ones on the beach not return to the ocean? If so, what a beautiful yet sad event.

They never return to the ocean. By the next morning, birds eat all of them.
