Moon Jellies


As part of our celebration of Museum Week, we reflect back on our visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific on October 6, 2019 to photograph these mysterious and beautiful translucent Moon Jellies. In the wild, they live in temperate areas of the Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans.

The toxins in this jelly’s stinging cells are not strong enough to penetrate human skin, making them safe to touch.
