Ten million jellyfish swim from one side of the lake to the other as they follow the sun in the popular snorkeling destination called Jellyfish Lake.
A unique migration occurs every day in a saltwater lake on Eil Malk Island, a part of the uninhabited Rock Islands of Palau in the Western Pacific Ocean, and diver Nadia Aly found herself smack-dab in the middle of it. Jellyfish Lake is a landlocked saltwater lake that was formed 12,000 years ago. It is connected to the ocean through fissures and tunnels in the limestone of an ancient reef. As the jellyfish evolved in the algae-rich lake, they lost their sting, allowing for snorkelers to swim through clouds of moon and golden jellyfish without the fear of getting stung.
According to PBS, the jellyfish have eight primitive eyes and algae that live within their cells and migrate twice a day to get sunlight to their internal algae so that the algae can grow. At night they swim to a lower depth, return to the over side of the lake, and start over the next day. Aly spent a total of eight hours in the waters of Jellyfish Lake, capturing several stunning photographs, including a selfie.
“I shot thousands of photos over the few days I was there,” she told MailOnline. “The time of day and location of the sun are the two factors that really make or break the shoot.” Jellyfish Lake is popular with snorkelers since the jellyfish have lost their sting over time with absence of many predators

To date, we have explored less than five percent of the ocean
The ocean is the lifeblood of Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface, driving weather, regulating temperature, and ultimately supporting all living organisms. Throughout history, the ocean has been a vital source of sustenance, transport, commerce, growth, and inspiration.
Yet for all of our reliance on the ocean, 95 percent of this realm remains unexplored, unseen by human eyes.
The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders lying along a stretch of Koekohe Beach on the wave-cut Otago coast of New Zealand between Moeraki and Hampden. They occur scattered either as isolated or clusters of boulders within a stretch of beach where they have been protected in a scientific reserve. The erosion by wave action ofmudstone, comprising local bedrock and landslides, frequently exposes embedded isolated boulders. These boulders are grey-colored septarian concretions, which have been exhumed from the mudstone enclosing them and concentrated on the beach by coastal erosion.

There is an interesting story to how I came into possession of this stone. I was in Miami for a few weeks enjoying myself. I decided to walk around and see if anything caught my eye for purchase. As I began to cross the street I had a clue to what I would experience in the immediate future. The thought ” You are going to find familiar energy but It wont be like your used to” So right after that thought crossed my mind I looked up and I see a crystal shop… Nice I thought. So I go inside and look around at the fairly large collection of stones. The crystal shops I usually go into are very relaxed and allow you to handle/inspect the crystals however you please. This shop was run a bit different by one lady who I assumed owned the shop. I grabbed a stone off of the shelf and began to hold it … soon after the owner of the shop was on my back asking if I wanted to purchase. I first asked If she herself own crystals and calmly explained how I would like to feel them before I buy. That was enough to keep her off of my back for 20 seconds. She continued pushing me to buy so I again repeated what was said earlier, Id like to touch and look at the crystals before I buy. She did not accept that as an answer and continued to press the issue of what if other customers come in, as we debate in this store very alone. At this point I simply said okay put the stone down and left. There was no point of me staying my mind couldn’t wrap itself around the idea of the owner forcing me to buy something of a spiritual nature. The whole day and night I thought on it. The next day it came to me that I should really go back and try again with the intention of teaching this lady what I thought could be a valuable lesson in patience. Clarity was my second agenda. The thought of someone else being in the store on my return came to mind and not to my surprise there was a new person in the store once I returned the following night. I walked in intentionally with a few Macy bags, just to give off the perspective that yes I do have money and spend. Maybe she thought I couldn’t afford the stones. Either way I walk in and the new young lady that was there was more than helpful showed me stones let me hold them, didnt mention buying anything once. So as I hold the angelite stone I feel the presence of the owner as well as see her in my peripheral vision. She walks up to me and says oh your back again, maybe you buy this time. We immediately begin the exchange of sharp aggressively toned comments to each other in the nature of Me -“You cant force anyone to buy things” … Her -“You touch touch touch buy you no buy” in her deep latin accent. I began even pleading with her saying why are you making it such a difficult experience for me I have bags of clothes I can careless about, I just want to buy a stone.” But there was a breakthrough… In a flash like moment I understood why there was conflict. I was used to a different treatment in other stores but that did not change the fact that this is her store and her policy is different. Once that settled in I said okay I will not touch any more. I followed my word but I surely stayed in the store for about an hour pointing at each and every stone asking for explanation before purchasing two Shattuckite stones. I found it effective. The same night I saw a shooting star while in deep breathing meditation holding the piece below.
