"We're getting reports that the bioluminesence runs from La Jolla to Encinitas, but we don't know how big the red tide is", Latz told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Photographer Stephen Bay, who captured images of the waves earlier this week and said the color reminded him of a Star Wars light saber, likened the bioluminescence display to another natural phenomenon.

"Based on analysis of a water sample provided by Scripps collector Phil Zerofski, the water contains dense numbers of dinoflagellates especially Ceratium falcatiforme and Lingulodinium polyedra, As L. polyedra (formerly Gonyaulax polyedra) is well known for its bioluminescent displays, there may be some nice light shows tonight", Latz said in an email.

The last red tide in the area was in 2013 and lasted a week.
