The current red tide is being caused by massive numbers of dinoflagellates including "Ceratium falcatiforme" and "Lingulodinium polyedra", according to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego.

Stephen Bay, of Stephen Bay Photography, captured the neon tides Monday night at Torrey Pines.

It may look otherworldly, but a striking display of light seen on some beaches in Southern California this week has a very earthly (or ocean-y) explanation.

The Sacramento Bee reported police found two loaded guns at the home - a.38-caliber pistol and a Sig Sauer short-barreled rifle. Foster 's friend stayed with Ennis and him that February 11 night, and claimed he was unaware of any altercation or argument.

Researchers say a combination of physical, chemical, and biological factors are the driving forces behind allowing red tides to form.

The San Diego coast is hosting a red tide, which is a bloom involving these single-cell organisms that can make the water appear red.

Dozens of beachgoers gathered at La Jolla Shores Wednesday night to catch a glimpse of the glowing phenomenon.

Hatch apologizes for his McCain funeral criticism
While the younger McCain flew home over the weekend, news broke that the senator was beginning to make funeral arrangements. McCain has served five terms in the US Senate since 1986, and was the Republican presidential nominee in 2008.

Bio luminescence Expert Michael Latz says that hasn't happened there in almost five years.

The glow is caused by an algae bloom called "bioluminescent phytoplankton". The toxins may also make the surrounding air hard to breathe. Other regions, including Puget Sound in the Northwest, experience shellfish toxicity, which Native Americans connected to bioluminescence hundreds of years ago. HABs also include blooms of non-toxic species that have harmful effects on marine ecosystems.

The photo, taken by John H. Moore and shared on Scripps Oceanography's Twitter page, shows "a red tide offshore San Diego bringing a spectacular display of #bioluminescence to beaches at night".

With CIA nominee, we must draw a line on torture
Haspel, a 33-year CIA veteran with strong relationships within the agency, is unquestionably capable of stepping into the top job. In advance of her Wednesday hearing, officials reportedly summoned Haspel to the White House Friday.

While it is unknown is how long the red tide will last - the one in 2013 lasted one week - it is predicted that this particular red tide could last between a week to a few monrhs.
