This is the stunning moment a photographer was left in awe when he came across some mesmerizing bio luminescent ALGAE.

The gorgeous natural phenomenon took place at Plantation Point in Jervis Bay, Australia.

The rare event is only known to happen once or twice a year so Jordan Robin was extremely lucky to catch the wonder of nature on film.

The video shows the awarding winning photographer moving his hand through the water causing the algae to glow bright blue.

Jordan from New South Wales, Australia said: ''This rare occurrence only usually happens once or twice a year.

''The video was taken on the 14th of January 2020. The video shows me moving my hand through the water causing the algae to glow a very bright blue.

“What can be seen as a red tide during the day, the microalgae Noctiluca scintillans produces a bright blue glow at night, like seen in the video.”
