If you were in Galveston this past weekend and you were driving by the beach. You would have caught a glimpse of a blueish glow coming out of Crystal Beach. If you have never seen this you might be thinking 'otherworldly.' However, there is a very scientific explanation. According to KHOU and our friends at Texas A&M at Galveston, this is called bioluminescence!

Experts say that algae called sea sparkle typically blooms this time of year when the temperatures are just right. With the perfect conditions, the organisms have a chemical reaction that releases energy in the form of light, causing the blue glow in the water. What a beautiful site!
