Moonlighting: Throwing Some New Light on the Life Cycle of the Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita)

Jellyfish have incredibly complex life cycles, involving many different stages during which they look nothing like the typical domed creatures we are so familiar with. Staff from the aquarium at the Horniman Museum and Gardens have been conducting research into the reproduction and development of Moon Jellyfish and have recently released a paper* on the topic along with these remarkable images charting the various developmental stages.

A Beautiful End to a Beautiful Day on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Here’s a shot of the sun setting behind the Salish Sea, taken Saturday night at Deception Pass State Park in Washington State. We spent the weekend camping at this amazing location and were treated to beautiful sunny and warm weather the whole weekend—a real rarity for May ‘round these parts! I hope the weather was as great wherever you are, and that you had the good fortune of being able to go outside and enjoy it!

And a little bit more contemporary northwest coast native art, since a friend tipped me off to the artist currently showing at the recently completed Duwamish Longhouse. (Seattle-ites, go see the art in person!)

 This is a great video regarding the polluted water concerns within the Puget Sound region.  Frontline: Poisoned Waters is an excellent documentary. I recommend it to all.
