Amazing bays of the world
Since ancient times, the blue light in the dark water caused the people both fear and admiration. Hundreds of years ago, no one even knew about the phenomenon of luminescence, why such a light was shrouded in many legends and myths. In the 18th century, the luminous mystery of water was finally revealed. It turned out that many sea creatures have the ability to glow in the dark.
For most of them, such light is quite common mechanism that allows them to survive in their habitat. Some microorganisms like glow is the result of mechanical stimulation. When the shore accumulates a plurality of such occupants, they form a totally improbable water backlight. We collected 10 seats, where you can watch this fantastic installation, not going to any comparison with any of the light show.
