Fireflies flashing on a warm summer night. The eerie glow of jack-o-lantern mushrooms in the forest on a moonless night. These lights bring mystery and magic to the dark night. Join us as we discover how light is produced and emitted from living organisms and how it is used to lure prey, deter predators and entice insects.
