This video, "The Blue," posted by 42-year-old Mark Peters of Martinez, California has been making the rounds for its breathtaking face-to-face footage of a school of dolphins. According to Peters on the video's Vimeo page, he captured the startling film with a goPro Hero2 camera in dive housing, with a "torpedo" housing (visible in the video), which he built himself to keep the camera steady underwater.

In fact, it's so amazing that GoPro had posted it as a video of the day on its Facebook Page, and not surprisingly, it sparked a bit of little debate in the comments section as to its authenticity. Peters insists what he captured is real and thinks it's "funny that some people are swearing it's fake." What do you think?
