CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Vistors had a different experience at the Texas State Aquarium Thursday night for the Aquarium After Dark. 

During the after dark hours exhibits stayed open past their standard closing time of 6 p.m. and instead visitors could explore all the aquarium has to offer until 9 p.m.

"Well I went in the water park, and I saw an octopus, and when we went to go see it we were looking, and when we looked up it was right on the glass above us," visitor Cameron Duke said. 

If you missed out on Thursday's event, don't worry, the aquarium will also be hosting another day on Thursday, July 18.
