A mysterious blue glow suddenly emanated from the icy waters of the White Sea in Russia. Russian biologists were surprised to see Christmas-like colored lights in the sea ice. These scientists were working on the coast of the Arctic. He captured the blue glow coming from the White Sea in his camera. It is being told that this light (Bioluminescent) was coming due to this very small creature Copipod in size.

This has happened after 80 years in the Arctic region when this blue light has been seen. Microbiologist Vera Emelianenko stationed at this remote research station collected some of the ice. The ice was then observed with a microscope and found that the glow was coming from a tiny bioluminescent animal known as a copepod. These are marine insects and are found 300 feet deep in the sea during the day.

As the night falls, these insects come very high in the sea. Ksenia Kosobokova, from the Russian Academy of Science, said the copepods were probably caught by powerful waves in the White Sea and washed ashore. On December 1, the waves of the sea were very strong and at this time this blue light was seen for the first time. After this there were strong waves on 16 December also.

This indicated that the strong waves forced the copepods to come ashore. Bioluminescence is a natural phenomenon in which light is emitted from a living organism. This light is emitted due to chemical reaction. This organism contains a particle called luciferin. Luciferin reacts with oxygen and produces a faint light. It looks amazing. These tiny creatures can survive even in very low temperatures.
