Like a scene from Avatar but on our own planet: Natural phenomenon turns sea water an electric neon blue as it washes up on beach.

It may look like an alien life-form has washed up on a beach, but this striking neon blue effect is a completely natural phenomenon. It captures a natural chemical reaction called bioluminescence, which occurs when a micro-organism in the water is disturbed by oxygen.
