Yes...heard much about that as a nuclear reactor operator in the US Navy some years ago. We used to peer through the leaded glass when passing the reactor tunnel, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "Cerenkov glow." Never did see it, though.

However, I did see some Saint Elmo's Fire once though, out to sea on an aircraft carrier; also a blue glow, but an entirely different phenomenon....
