The Beacon

Like Whaley ... Are They That Hard to See?

The blue whale is the largest known creature on the planet. It can grow to a length of about 110 feet and weigh as much as 200 tons.

It seems to me an animal of such size wouldn't be too difficult to spot at sea. So why is it then that three of these behemoths have been struck by ocean liners in a little over two weeks?
