'Neon' waves: a fantastically beautiful natural phenomenon off the coast of Southern California

A naturally occurring bioluminescent algae bloom has dramatically brightened the ocean waters off the coast of Southern California with a blue "neon" glow. CBS Los Angeles.

Glowing waves create a breathtaking view from the beaches in Southern California.

Bioluminescence is known as the "red tide", or algal bloom, which is a large concentration of microorganisms in the water.

On sunny days, water with such algae has a cloudy reddish hue. At night, when microorganisms begin to move actively, they emit a neon-blue glow.

Because of orders to stay at home, many cannot go to the coast to see this phenomenon.

“It's just impressive,” Paige Taylor said. "I've seen it maybe once every five years."

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), red tide can sometimes be harmful to fish, marine mammals, and birds.

NOAA experts also say that not all such algal blooms are harmful, and that in most cases they actually provide food and nutrients for marine plants and animals.

It is not yet clear how long the red tide will continue with a wonderful neon glow.
