sea nettleThe local science writers’ group organizes a lot of cool events. Last weekend some of us spent a morning in Baltimore, checking out the jellyfish exhibit at the National Aquarium and touring a NOAA ship.

I might write about the NOAA ship later; for now, I’ve written about the jellyfish for The Last Word on Nothing.

That jellyfish at the left is a northern sea nettle. Isn’t it pretty?

These upside-down jellies share their tank with the amusingly-named blue blubber jelly.
