This strange biological phenomenon has been taking place in the Arabian Sea for the past two, three days. The algae in the seawater are green throughout the day and turn blue in the night.

The sea had turned the same colour for a few days in the middle of September. Officials from the pollution control board had then taken samples from the sea to test for pollutants.

Experts now believe that algae concentration has returned to the sea which on reflecting the moonlight appear blue in colour.
