Our friends at NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Ocean Today have a great new video series, "Every Full Moon," that we wanted to share with you. NOAA Ocean Today is a multimedia kiosk that features videos about all aspects of the ocean and was originally designed for our very own National Museum of Natural History Sant Ocean Hall. You can watch their new video series “Every Full Moon” from the comfort of your couch or classroom. The series will feature ocean discoveries, wondrous animals and people around the world who love and care about the ocean.
Every month during the full moon they will release a new collection of videos around a specific topic. This month they take a look at deep-sea creatures and bioluminescence (which you can also read more about on our site). You can watch the intro above and find more about the series here
