Glow: Living Lights

 

As it turns out, Mother Nature is afraid of the dark too.  How else can you explain all of those night lights in the forest, in the ground, and in the sea? Everywhere you look in the natural night there are critters aglow – from fireflies to jellyfish to worms and snails.

 

In the most recent exhibition to grace the halls of the Museum of Idaho, Glow: Living Lights explores one of nature’s most peculiar and least understood phenomena – bioluminescence. Bring your curiosity. Bring your sense of wonder. But leave your night light at home.  Mother Nature has that covered.
