IS IT A BIRD? A PLANE? NO, IT'S DEEP SEA CREATURES - FLYING THROUGH THE SEA.  Unusual species from the darkest corners of the ocean look like they can fly as they glow in the dark.  These spectacular creatures - including squid, octopus and flying fish - light up the blackness of the sea around them off the coast of Palm Beach in Florida, USA.<br />
