...given to sudden behavior change, fanciful, irrepressible, spirited, whimsical and by all means, unpredictable. What will today bring?

The EV Nautilus has been exploring in Astoria Canyon, off the coast of Oregon near the mouth of the Columbia river, since yesterday afternoon. Fascinating, incredible footage. This photo is one of theirs, sent out on Twitter. But it's what they passed over for hours, even through the night last night. They discovered a previously unknown methane seep yesterday while I was watching, the waters everywhere have been rich with starfish and other fish, crabs and sea stars, and floating biologic matter that reflected the ROV lights like millions of microscopic diamonds. I can't watch for terribly long because for some reason streaming this site overheats my computer.
This dive is ending right now, but they'll be out there again soon, perhaps at a different location. Check in and see what's going on! Here.
