Crowds gathered at a beach near George Town in Tasmania to witness the glow of bioluminescence at a beach, running their hands and feet through the bright blue water.In footage captured on Tuesday, March 14, the glowing water gave the stunning impression of an alien landscape against the dark backdrop of the sleepy town.
According to The Australian, the phenomenon is actually created by a living organism called Noctiluca scintillans as it feeds on plankton.
The illumination was also witnessed at Preservation Bay, further west along Tasmania’s north shore. According to the ABC, it is commonly called “sea sparkle.” Credit: CollingsCreative via Storyful

Dinoflagellates. You don't have to go to Tasmania, or a warm ocean current, to find them. You can buy them for $60 in a kit that makes a nice dinosaur lamp from them.
