Glowing waves: Playful dog splashes around in blue bioluminescent waters in Newport Beach

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- The electric blue waves are back in SoCal!

Video from Newport Beach shows a man and his dog enjoying the bioluminescent waters.

The phenomena occurs when millions of tiny organisms such as plankton get disturbed.

This is the second time the blue waves have been spotted this year. We saw the brilliant blue waters in March in the Laguna Beach area.
