After this week’s glorious solar eclipse over North America, it’s going to be a long seven years until the next one. But don’t worry, there are plenty of natural wonders to enjoy in the meantime. Try looking down instead of up — way down. Here the New York Times shows off some magnificent bioluminescent creatures of the deep.

Bioluminescent phytoplankton (dinoflagellates) work very similarly even though they are single-celled organisms. I’ve actually had the privilege to work alongside a client, BioPop, who specializes in creating products harness and showcase the beauty of these minute creatures. It’s a great conversation piece for anyone curious about marine life. 🙂
