You probably think that Earth is so cool for having this and that, but wait till you see these pictures. This actually occurs naturally but it may look like a scene from a fairytale yet it’s 100% real. Those glowing stars that you see along the sand have not been Photoshopped, they’ve been made by Mother Nature herself.

This awesome display of glowing blue waves only happens in Vaadhoo Island which is located in the Maldives. What you see here is the result of phytoplankton. No, not Plankton from Spongebob.

This phytoplankton gives off biological light.

One of the common phytoplankton is called “Dinoflagellates”. They give off a bright blue glow because of their cell membranes which responds to electrical signals.

It looks like someone just Photoshopped a picture to look like this. It’s unbelievable that things such as these actually do exist on Earth. All thanks to Mother Nature.
