Bright blue water under California's Dixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur has been spotted at night recently by visitors and locals. Big Sur has some of the most breathtaking views in the country, but a recent rise in bioluminescent phytoplankton has turned its waves into a new attraction. Reports of glowing waves down the California coast have spiked since January. According to Steve Haddock, a bioluminescence specialist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, this is most likely due to a combination of high nutrient rates and calm conditions that form layers of highly concentrated dinoflagellates in the water.
