Strange Glowing Creatures Off Oregon Coast

(Newport, OR)  --  The waters off the Oregon Coast are full of strange, glowing creatures.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says pyrosomes look like translucent pickles and are likely here due to warm ocean conditions.  The pyrosomes' numbers have grown exponentially this year, with most of them being 40-to-150 miles offshore.  Scientists with NOAA and OSU will be setting out more research trips in the coming weeks to study the mysterious creatures.
