Bio-luminescence in Maine?
Posted in the Marine Biology Forum
#1 Jul 12, 2011
Me and a friend just got back from Old Orchard Beach (Maine coast). We were walking on the shore at night, the waves were fairly active, when my friend who was in about a foot or two of water had something bright greenish/blue (he says green, I say blue) light up in the water next to him. It reminded me of lightning, covering definite streaks in about a 4 foot patch. It flickered 2-3 times in the course of a few seconds, then it didn't happen again, though we watched the area for several minutes.
It was about high tide, a day ago so mid July, and again,the coast of Maine. We talked it out all night, and we're fairly certain it was an object in the water making the light, and not a reflection ON the water.
