The blob (Chukchi Sea algae)
The blob is a large mass of algae that was first spotted floating in the Chukchi Sea between the Alaskan cities of Wainwright and Barrow in July 2009. Its length is at least 19 km (12 mi). The algae is colored black, which is considered to be unusual. Early examiners of the algae were unable to determine its species.
