Phosphoric Ooze may refer to:
Phosphorus is a chemical element. The first form of elemental phosphorus to be produced (white phosphorus in 1669) emits a faint glow upon exposure to oxygen–hence its name from Greek mythology, Φωσφόρος meaning "light-bearer", referring to the "Morning Star", the planet Venus. The term "phosphorescence," meaning glow after illumination, originally derives from this property of phosphorus, although this word has since been used for a different physical process that produces a glow. The glow of phosphorus originates from oxidation of the white (but not red) phosphorus—a process now termed chemiluminescence.
