During a recent sea expedition near Mexico, researchers spotted a rare jellyfish off the Socorro Island, Mexico. The Halitrephes Maasi jellyfish is extremely rare and is one of a dozen to have been ever seen. This jellyfish looks like a 'firework' from is appearance.

Researchers onboard the Exploration Vessel Nautilus — a research vessel operated by the Ocean Exploration Trust — captured stunning photographs of this rare species, the Telegraph reported.

The Halitrephes Maasi jellyfish is a species of deep-sea jellyfish belonging to the family Halicreatidae. They are usually spotted at a depth of 4,000 to 5,000 feet under the water. However, this rare sighting of the jellyfish was barely at a depth of almost a mile — 1609 m — which in itself is a rare phenomenon.

  Don't eat prawns, they are not fish: Hyderabad-based Islamic outfit issues fatwa Don't eat prawns, they are not fish: Hyderabad-based Islamic outfit issues fatwaThe Jamia Nizamia which was established in 1876, is one of the oldest Islamic Seminaries of the country. It issued a fatwa or a decree on January 1 which labels prawns, shrimps and crabs as makruh tahrim as it does not fall under the category of fish.

It's a rare find off the coast of La Jolla. A kayaker stumbled upon what is believed to be a rare black jellyfish . "And all of a sudden, I see this big jelly fish swimming right by me," said Richman. Richman set down his fishing pole and picked up his camera.

The sighting was part of the biological monitoring performed by the crew at El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve, who for 20 years have documented the annual migration of gray whales off the Mexican Pacific coast .

The team of researchers at the exploration trust wrote that they started this year with deep sea fireworks stating that whenever they witness anything remarkable floating in the sea during their expeditions, they quickly document the discovery.

Speaking of the rare jellyfish, the team said that the frilled tentacles of the Halitrephes Maasi were discovered in the Revillagigedo Archipelago off the Mexican state of Baja California. The researchers said that the “radial canals that move nutrients through the jelly's bell form a starburst pattern that reflects the lights of ROV Hercules with bright splashes of yellow and pink.”

They also shared a video of the rare species on their website.

The Ocean Exploration Trust was started by Dr. Robert Ballard in the year 2008. Dr. Ballard is infamous for discovering the wreckage of the Titanic.

Twitter users couldn’t control their excitement on learning about the extremely rare ‘firework’ jellyfish.

“It’s amazing to have such spectacular color on a jellyfish, so far below the ocean, very cool,” a user named Thomas Otterman wrote on Twitter.

“Beautiful! The incredible world beneath the ocean that humans have yet to explore-amazing isn't it?” wrote Amrapali Choudhary.
