Jellyfish! The Next King of the Sea: jellyfish have washed up as far as the eye can see around Haystack Rock Oregon
Jellyfish! The Next King of the Sea; as the world’s oceans ecosystems close down Jellyfish will be the next king of the sea, this is the third massive invasion this year...
Huge numbers of moon jellyfish have washed up as far as the eye can see around Haystack Rock on the Oregon Coast.
The Daily Astorian reported Thursday that it's not unusual for the jellies to wash up after a winter storm or ocean upwelling.
But marine biologists are urging beachgoers not to touch them.
While moon jellies usually don't sting, another kind of jellyfish called the Pacific sea nettle does sting - sometimes even after it's dead.

Just like the weather! Earth's north magnetic pole is shifting so rapidly and in an unpredictable manner at 50 kilometres (30 miles) a year
The Earth's north magnetic pole is shifting so rapidly that steps are being taken to ensure it doesn't impact navigation in the Arctic.
Compass needles point towards the north magnetic pole, a point that has moved from Canada to the middle of the Arctic Ocean over the last century.
It is currently moving towards Siberia at about 50 kilometres (30 miles) a year.
The World Magnetic Model predicts the Earth's geomagnetic field for the next five years, and it is normally produced every five years.
Scientists have now recognized that the 2015 World Magnetic Model needs updating earlier than planned, but the update has been postponed from January 15 to January 30 due to the ongoing U.S. government shutdown.

The holiest site in Islam has been hit by a plague of locusts, forcing cleaners into action to drive the insects out.
Footage shared on social media showed the insects swarming around the Great Mosque in Mecca, which hosts millions of Muslim pilgrims every year.
In one of the videos, the insects can be seen clearly when the night sky is illuminated by the lights of the mosque.
A close-up view shows them swarming in all directions, over the heads of the cleaners in green uniforms attempting to deal with them.

Millions of locusts black out the sun in parts of Mexico devastating crops and agriculture
After thousands of locusts arrived at the beaches of Progreso and Sisal three days ago, the swarm has now moved all the way to Merida.
The Yucatecan capital witnessed hundreds of thousands (probably millions) of these insects who covered the sky like a cloud, blacking out the sun at some points.
Many social network users reported the event through their accounts.
The plague of locusts was detected in several neighbourhoods of the city and the cybernauts shared images and videos of the arrival mentioning @climaYucatan.
