Did you know that there are a network of lakes in Australia that glow in the dark?

Gippsland is a large rural region in Victoria, Australia. The place is well known with its mystery of blue glowing water that appears during the night. However, just recently, the mystery has been solved.

Lake Gippsland (actually a network of lakes) teems with microorganisms (Noctiluca Scintillans) that produce a ghostly blue glow thanks to their natural luminescence.
