The captivating pink lake is not a trick of the light, and it retains it’s hue when removed, but the origin of it’s bubble gum aesthetics remains a mystery the science community is still trying to solve. best guess right now is that it has to do with the high salt levels in the water.

Abraham Lake in Alberta Canada is home to a rare phenomenon that needs to be seen to believe. Trapped under it’s frozen surface, methane gas creeps its way up creating beautiful air bubbles as it freezes and melts and freezes and melts as the flammable element searches for its way out.

The methane is created when plants, and animals in the lake sink to the bottom and react with the bacteria in the water. the bacteria begins to break down the organic matter, decomposing them, slowly releasing the gas. Usually the gas floats its way to the top of the lake where it is released in the air, but when the lake freezes over, methane struggles a little more to find it’s freedom. It’s hardship shapes moving images, leaving admirers breathless.

This midnight light show on the shores of Vaadhoo, Maldives however unbelievable is not the result of an elaborate Photoshop. It is however the result of tiny marine microbes called phytoplankton washing up on the sand.

There are many types of phytoplankton that are known to have an ability called bio-luminescence which allows them to glow as a defensive mechanism to scare predators and lure bigger predators to eat the ones looking to eat them {Oh, the circle of life}. When these plankton are agitated they let off their glow creating stars in the ocean as the waves ripple them to shore.
