Is It a Jellyfish or a UFO? Watch Video & You Decide!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The ocean is magical. It`s also really vast and scary and shockingly uncharted. But we`re going to focus on the `magical` part -- like this crazy glowing jellyfish everyone is swooning about.

Look at that thing: It has long tentacles that can extend straight out from the center bell, making it look at times like an alien beacon or a missing part to a spaceship from another galaxy.

Scientists on NOAA`s Okeanos Explorer Vessel caught video of this creature in April near the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ocean. It was hanging out about 12,000 feet (3700 m) below the water`s surface. (That`s far above the 13,000 - 20,000 feet abyssal zone where no light reaches and even more wild and terrifying creatures lurk.)"


This glowing jellyfish looks like a tiny UFO, thank goodness UFO nuts don`t have the means to to dive 12,000 feet below the water`s surface, or YouTube would be chock full of of videos claiming this magical creature was a UFO.

There are a gazillion and one videos purporting to depict flying saucers hovering over our little blue planet, let`s keep the oceans a UFO-free zone.

For most of my adult life, I`ve been trying to stamp out UFO tomfoolery, it would be ironic if this video that I posted a link to led people to imagine that UFOs are taking over our oceans.
