An amazing phenomenon can be enjoyed in the evenings of California’s Big Surroundings: in the popular beach, because of the large number of single-celled organisms present in the water, the waves sparkle in magical blue. A relatively infrequent phenomenon is called bioluminescence, which is referred to when a chemical reaction in a living organism involves the emission of light (photon). Lighting has a number of ways to survive, such as feeding a food, attacking an attacker, or having a mating assistant, or even having multiple functions at one time. Light is generated by the oxidation of the compound called luciferin, the exact composition of which varies according to species. Bioluminescence monocytes (most commonly called Noctiluca scintillans) light up when exposed to mechanical stress and respond to very small pressure changes. The slightest disturbance in water causes the lighting reaction that results in astonishing light effects in the vicinity of boats, waves or even floating humans. The phenomenon is particularly spectacular in the days, because in the nutrient-rich, calm water, the bioluminescent monoculars have rapidly multiplied, but after the next storm or stronger waves they will spread quickly, but it will be a wonderful experience for those who visit the shore after sunset.
