The confinement to which millions of people must have been subjected has not only caused animals to transit freely through places inhabited by humans. And it is that it has allowed several people to become witnesses of unusual phenomena that hardly occur. Proof of this, what happened a few days ago on the beaches of Puerto Marqués, in Acapulco (Mexico).

As you can see in the images published on social networks by user Abril Damian , the water naturally lit up at night, leaving several residents stunned who did not hesitate to record the event. The material was published on Facebook and Twitter, where it became a trend.

According to local media and some residents of the area, this fact had not occurred in 60 years due to the high concentration of people in the place.
