The incredible natural phenomenon never ceases to amaze us. On our planet there are many beautiful parts of unearthly beauty of which is breathtaking. The earth is much more amazing than you can imagine: some phenomena are so rare that perhaps you never heard of, and they are fantastic. Want to see this? In this issue we will tell you about the most wonderful things on Earth.
On one of the beaches in New Zealand, near the village Moreaki, was found huge spherical stones. The unusual shape and size of the stones, which was called "Murakami", attract tourists. Two-thirds of the stones have a diameter of from 1.5 to 2.2 meters, and the largest is 3 meters.
Moreaki rocks consist mainly of mud, silt and clay, which were frozen in rock-forming calcite. According to legend, the perception among local residents, it is the remains of pumpkins and tubers of sweet potatoes, which the sea washed up on the shore from the sinking canoe ancestors of the indigenous inhabitants of these lands.
Allogeneically arc or fire rainbow — a unique optical phenomenon, which is a horizontal rainbow. She appears in the sky when the sun's rays piercing through ice crystals in Cirrus clouds. The angle of the sun above the horizon should be greater than 58 degrees. The refraction of light is the colors kalogeropoulou arc cleaner than conventional colors of the rainbow.
Fire rainbow usually appears low on the horizon. Colored arcs can be seen mainly in the mid-latitudes from may to August, a total of about 200 hours per year.
Vertical rays of light or lighting columns, stretching up into the sky, look like something unearthly. This phenomenon occurs when light reflects off almost vertically falling ice crystals. Typically, these beams of light can be observed when the sun is low on the horizon just after sunrise or just before sunset.
Shimmering blue waves can be seen very rarely and only in a few places in the world. Luminescence of water is due to living in organisms, plankton and algae. In daylight they look very unattractive, more like a brown spot on the water. And by night as a result of biochemical processes occurring in them, begins a spectacular glow, from which it is impossible to tear your eyes away.
This is a beautiful and fascinating phenomenon that can be seen mostly in warm seas, inhabited by plankton and algae possessing fluorescent properties. In the photo you can see how the author is "bombarded" plankton stones, and it was such a beautiful glowing "explosions".
These frozen bubbles, reminiscent of the bubbles in champagne, very beautiful but very dangerous. They can be found at lake Abraham in Canada, however, smokers, we do not recommend to go there, and all because inside bubbles contains no air and combustible gas is methane. If to pierce the bubble close to the fire, it will explode, throwing up a flame.
And you know how the bubbles appeared methane? This happens because of... bacteria. When fallen leaves and dead animals sink to the bottom of the lake, they feed on bacteria, releasing the methane. And when in contact with frozen water, methane going into the pockets of white ice.
Monarch butterflies are known for their mass migrations of hundreds of thousands of these insects from North America flock to the South, overcoming great distances, there to winter. Scientists estimate that in the winter in Mexico arrives about 14 million individuals of this species.
Forests that fly in the winter of the monarch butterfly from such an abundance of these creatures and change their colour from green to orange. In some parts of Mexico butterfly covers a land area of 8 hectares. It happened that under the weight of several thousand butterflies broke the branches of trees.
12. The phenomenon that you see in this photo, it occurs when the tidal wave collides with the water from the river or Bay's current in the opposite direction. This happens in those places where the difference between the water level before and after the tide is more than 6 meters. In Europe, this phenomenon can be observed in the UK and in France.
Such a storm would be scared and Zeus himself. This unusual phenomenon occurs only in Venezuela — in the place where the Catatumbo river empties into lake Maracaibo. Such storms are not uncommon: formed from 140 to 160 times a year and can last up to 10 hours. For only one hour in the sky there is about 280 lightning, which reach a length of from 2 to 10 kilometers and even more. It is believed that the Venezuelan storm is the world's largest ozone generator. A flash of light visible from a distance of hundreds of kilometers, so the phenomenon is called "the lighthouse of Maracaibo".
For many years, scientists trying to find out the reason for the formation of these unusual "magic circles" in the Namib desert in southwest Africa. The diameter of the circles can reach from 2 to 15 meters. The indigenous people of the desert believe that the gods leave traces, stepping on the ground. According to scientists, the most likely cause of the magic circles in the desert is the activity of termites that feed on grass roots and just like her "eating".
