A photographer from Forks, WA visited the Washington coast to capture the lunar eclipse and captured more than just the lunar event:
The green glow was actually a bioluminescent fungus known as foxfire.
The cloud cover during the lunar eclipse was too thick to photograph, which is how Nichols came to photograph the glowing green fungus. He states:
"I realized the clouds were not going to give me a view (of the eclipse)," Nichols told FOX Weather. "So, I pointed my camera toward the ocean, hoping the peak of the eclipse would block out enough moonlight to see if there was any bioluminescence in the water. At first, I thought someone left lanterns," he said. "Then upon further investigation, I found it was a bioluminescent fungus growing all over some of the driftwood that had washed up from the storm!! It looked like something straight out of 'Avatar'. They were glowing bright green, extremely visible to the naked eye. As soon as the eclipse was over, and the moon was shining bright again, I could no longer see the logs glowing. It was such an amazing reward for a failed attempt at capturing the lunar eclipse."
Nichols sent a sample of the to a mycologist for identification.
