Those weird lights in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean — what are they?
Are they an unstoppable force of electric underwater creatures swimming, slowly but steadily, toward the shore where they will flood our cities and force us all to watch "Finding Nemo" from now until the end of time?
Fortunately, no (for now). The lights, which were spotted using Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite on the Suomi NPP satellite, are actually a large collection of fishermen.
NASA explains, "There are no human settlements there, nor fires or gas wells. But there are an awful lot of fishing boats."
Yep, that's right, those lights that could easily be mistaken for a series of heavily populated islands are actually powerful lights on boats.
