NOAA captures video of other-worldly jellyfish

(WCMH) – When you see it, you might think it’s computer generated, but the other-worldly hydromedusa jellyfish is the real thing.

Scientists with the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research found this mesmerizing creature bobbing along the seafloor near the Enigma Seamount at a depth of 3,700 meters.

The dive team captured video of the jellyfish with a camera mounted on a remotely operated vehicle near the seafloor.

NOAA ship Okeanos Explorer is conducting deep water exploration in and around the lesser known parts of the Marianas Trench.
