USA Goat Rock
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Went to Goat Rock on the Sonoma Coast to take advantage of the moonless night to photograph the Milky Way. What I didn’t expect was to see a bioluminescent display in the breaking waves. The glowing blue light is caused by a marine microorganism, a single-celled creature called a dinoflagellate. Through a chemical reaction they glow when disturbed by the breaking waves. It was truly a magical scene.

Goat Rock is located on CA highway 101 just south of the town of Jenner. It is a State Park and is open daily. The gates to the beach parking close art sunset, but there is roadside parking along the access road after dark.
