Pig crap makes beautiful colors don't you think?

The harbor in Hong Kong sparkled with an eerie blue glow, painting a surprising and beautiful picture. But few people know that the cause of this lovely landscape is actually pollution – pig manure, fertiliser and sewage. This nutrient-rich pollution encouraged a bloom of Noctiluca scintillans, commonly known as “Sea Sparkle.”

Noctiluca scintillans

I would have said aliens, but no just good old manure and pesky plankton.

More pretty pictures and explanation at source

This pretty plankton overgrows indicate a strong contamination and its pretty much a red tide that may kill all life in the harbor but its pretty, deathly but pretty, at least is not like the red one because you know this one is blue.

I'd say yes they do look great!


At what cost?

Are those 'planktons' warning us?

Beautiful glow. Not good for a swim though.
