An algae bloom off the San Diego shores and the southern California coast between La Jolla and Encinitas has brought a red tide, creating a reddish haze during the day, and a spectacular light show at night.
The algae is filled with bioluminescent phytoplankton, which create an eerie, blue glow whenever it’s jostled around by the rolling waves. The glow can be seen in full view at night, about two hours after sunset, shining like a liquid version of the Northern Lights.
