This morning, Vancouverites got an unexpected sight of aquatic light during their morning commute.
In the spirit of our winter feature, Luminescence: a celebration of aquatic light, we teamed up with 24 hrs in Vancouver to illuminate 50 paperboxes across the city. Just like marine creatures that create and reflect light in the ocean, the glowing paperboxes intrigued passers-by who were drawn to the light.
Until January 22, 2014, guests at the Vancouver Aquarium can discover the power of aquatic light first hand. Luminescence showcases animals that glow in the dark through the phenomena of bioluminescence and fluorescence, such as anemones, cuttlefish, jellies, corals and even scorpions.
Luminescence features a number of new and traditional elements, including Jelly Swarm, a deep-dive interactive, beautifully-lit jelly habitats, and an electric-eel-powered tree. Learn more about Luminescence here.
During the holidays, guests can also enjoy Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas 4-D with special effects to tickle all of your senses and, of course, the man in red (our very own Scuba Claus) is making special appearances in the Strait of Georgia Exhibit on weekends and every day from December 21-24.
