While monochromatic photos make this effect appear white, [[Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute]] scientist [[Steve Haddock]] (an author of a milky seas effect study) has commented, "the light produced by the bacteria is actually blue, not white. It is white in the graphic because of the monochromatic sensor we used, and it can appear white to the eye because the rods in our eye (used for night vision) don't discriminate color." []
The condition has been the stuff of [[mariner]]'s tales for centuries, – notably appearing in chapter 24 of [[Jules Verne]]'s ''[[Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea]]'' – but until recently it has not been scientifically documented.
In 2005, Steven D. Miller of the [[Naval Research Laboratory]] in [[Monterey]], [[Calif]]. began research into the phenomenon. His team found only one well-documented occurrence, off the Somali coast on Jan. 25, 1995. [[Satellite images]] collected at the same time and location by the U.S. [[Defense Meteorological Satellite Program]] also showed a milky white area aprox. 15,400-km2 (roughly the size of the US state of Connecticut), lending truth to the stories.
