'Alien' life form spotted in Bristol harbour: a close encounter or is something fishy going on?


Could this footage of a strange glowing creature swimming in Bristol harbour be proof that the planet is slowly being taken over by aliens?

Marine biologists believe the squid-like animal could be a marine salp which had drifted off course because of the weather.

Others have suggested it could be a bioluminescent hydrozoan jellyfish, otherwise known as a 'crystal jelly', not often seen in Britain.
They tend to be found off the west coast of North America and are capable of producing flashes of blue light.

A similar species was spotted off the coast of Scotland in 2009 and is now on display at the Macduff Marine Aquarium.
