Jelly. You can spot this floaty in the NY Aquarium.
Thanks Laura! I scoured the web for an inkling of what these floaties were but the closest thing I found was the Pacific Sea Nettle and I wasn't convinced. Excellent observation on the similarities between the Chrysaora's radiating lines and a compass!
These are beautiful pictures! The jellyfish here is called a compass jelly, because of those lines that radiate from the centre :) They're really pretty, and I love how their tentacles waft behind them! I take it you this in an aquarium? If you did, could you add that to your spotting, just to make it clear? Thanks :D
