When I was younger we used to go night surfing next to the Manhattan beach pier and one night I was lucky enough to experience bioluminescent plankton like this. Still one of the coolest experiences of my life.

How fun! Weren't you frightened of sharks? My mother never let me swim near the pier for fear I'd get eaten.

Nah, not really. It is a little creepy and a few pranks are played but otherwise it was pretty safe in the south bay.

I was amazed the first time I saw plankton. We were sailing across the Mediterranean for our OEF deployment. It was surreal.

Me and my 14 year old friends got to experience this one night. My friend had a house with a small boat dock on a waterway. We saw minnows in the water that looked like they were glowing as they swam. One of us throws a rock into the water and it makes that bright blue splash like in the vid and we don't know WTF is going on. We spent hours messing around with the water that night. We tried to tell our parents and kids at school the next day and they all thought we were high.

Oh the days before we had cell phones with built-in cameras. To this day, no one believes I saw sasquatch. Fuck if I didn't.

There's probably a constant and everchanging disappointed army of aimless tourists at that spot now, stomping around waiting for the bacteria or fungi or whatever it is to reappear on command.

That’s plankton cruelty!
