Deep In The Forests Of Indiana, There’s A Magical Fungus That Glows In The Dark

Some things in this world are, despite being easily explainable, so very magical. Imagine this: You’re walking through the Indiana woods at night, beneath the soft light of the moon. The denizens of the forest make sure that it’s certainly not quiet; you can hear the calls of cicadas, crickets, and other nocturnal creatures. As you walk, you notice a green glow nearby. What on earth? You approach it and realize that it’s a group of mushrooms – a bunch of glowing ones!

This isn’t science fiction or fantasy; this is a strange and beautiful little fungus with a very appropriate name.
