Bioluminescent surf glows under the starry Australian sky. Alpha and Beta Centauri are two brightest stars in the sky. The ghostly blue light is produced by small single-celled marine microorganisms called Noctiluca scintillans (commonly known as the Sea Sparkle) through a chemical reaction. It can be found all over the globe and particularly in areas of nutrient-rich waters. The image is made from the The Squeaky Beach at Wilsons Promontory National Park, marking the southernmost part of the Australian mainland. © Alex Cherney
