It is often said that we know more about the surface of Mars than we know what exists in our oceans here on Earth.

Like a fanciful creature from a Pixar animated movie, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, has observed a strikingly beautiful jellywish swimming on an undersea mountain. The jelly was observed during NOAA's Okeanos Explorer's expedition to the Enigma seamount nearly 12,000 feet deep in the Marianas.
