Living Jelly

I believe this is some form of moon jellyfish. I've often found jellyfish of similar shape stranded along the beach. The day of this photo I was shooting from a pier down into the water and, for the first time, noticed the long tentacles as it moved in the water. I need someone to post an accurate description of what specific kind of jellyfish this is.
