What color is a “red tide” at night ?

A “red tide” happens when there is a concentration of plankton. During the day, it looks reddish or brown, but its colors can be very surprising at night. And extremely beautiful too !

Red tides can take place in the Gulf of Mexico but also on the Pacific Coast, and they can be dangerous for humans, as the algae can be swallowed with water.
