NOAA offers glimpse at rare deep sea jellyfish

SAN FRANCISCO -- NOAA is offering everyone above water a new look at a rare jellyfish.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released video showing a "cosmic jellyfish" spotted during an expedition in the Pacific near American Samoa on Feb. 21.

Researchers say the sea creature showed a perfectly relaxed arrangement of two sets of tentacles that allow for optimum feeding in water nearly 10,000 feet deep.
