20 Beautiful Natural Events Only A Few People Could Experience
When the iceberg gets flipped upside-down, it looks like a giant shiny piece of ice that's the color of the surrounding water. After days of staring at ordinary white icebergs, the boat came across an iceberg at Cierva Cove that had just flipped over in the water
2.A flock of starlings is called a murmuration.
A flock of starlings is called a murmuration. These flocks may include other species of starlings and sometimes species from other families. This sociality is particularly evident in their roosting behaviour; in the non-breeding season some roosts can number in the thousands of birds.
3.The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon that makes rolled clouds.
The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon consisting of a low-level atmospheric solitary wave and associated cloud, occasionally observed in different locations around the world. The wave often occurs as an amplitude-ordered series of waves forming bands of roll clouds.
4.A tidal bore
A tidal bore, often simply given as bore in context, is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travels up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay's current.
Wave Rock is a natural rock formation that is shaped like a tall breaking ocean wave. The "wave" is about 15 m (49 ft) high and around 110 m (360 ft) long. It forms the north side of a solitary hill, which is known as "Hyden Rock". This hill, which is a granite inselberg, lies about 3 km (2 mi) east of the small town of Hyden and 296 km (184 mi) east-southeast of Perth, Western Australia. Wave Rock and Hyden Rock are part of a 160 ha (395-acre) nature reserve, Hyden Wildlife Park. More than 100,000 tourists visit every year.
6.Bioluminescence makes the waves glow blue
It's called the bioluminescence, and its a phenomenon that occurs notably at beaches in San Diego. At night, certain algae blooms that make the waters glow an incredible neon blue. It really looks like thousands of lightsabers light up in the ocean.
7.Desert Bloom in Namaqualand, South Africa
Desert bloom is a climatic phenomenon that occurs in various deserts around the world. The phenomenon consists of the blossoming of a wide variety of flowers during early-mid spring in years when rainfall is unusually high.The blossoming occurs when the unusual level of rainfall reach the seeds and bulbs that have been in a latent or dormant state and causes them to germinate and flower in early spring.
8.Upper-atmospheric lightning is a lot bigger and scarier than the bolts of lightning we normally see
Upper-atmospheric lightning or ionospheric lightning are terms sometimes used by researchers to refer to a family of short-lived electrical-breakdown phenomena that occur well above the altitudes of normal lightning and storm
9.Yosemite’s Sunlit Waterfall Looks Like Glowing Lava
The effect is finicky, requiring superb conditions: The sunset must catch the 1,000-foot-tall Horsetail Fall just right to illuminate the mist with reds and oranges. Plus, there’s no guarantee of a waterfall, as it pours down El Capitan’s east side only if there’s enough water to fuel it.
10.An underwater river in Cenote Angelita, Mexico
Hidden Underwater River Flowing Under the Ocean in Mexico. Located in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, there's a secret underwater river called Cenote Angelita (Spanish for Little Angel) that can be found after a 10 to 15 minute drive south of Tulum.
11.Supercells are just thunderstorms characterized by the presence of a mesocyclone in them which makes them rotate.
A supercell is a thunderstorm characterized by the presence of a mesocyclone: a deep, persistently rotating updraft. For this reason, these storms are sometimes referred to as rotating thunderstorms.
12.A perfectly circular ice disk formed in a river in Westbrook, Maine and it looks incredible.
I think you can see how it is formed — that side of the river has a large eddy in the water current that traps the ice," Scambos told Live Science. "Because of the rotation, and probably occasional bumping into the shoreline — and the fact that the ice is freezing into a solid plate, the ice that gathered in the eddy was trapped and worked into a giant disk."
Asperitas is a cloud formation first popularized and proposed as a type of cloud in 2009 by Gavin Pretor-Pinney of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Added to the International Cloud Atlas as a supplementary feature in March 2017, it is the first cloud formation added since cirrus intortus in 1951.The name translates approximately as "roughness". The clouds are closely related to undulatus clouds. Although they appear dark and storm-like, they almost always dissipate without a storm forming. The ominous-looking clouds have been particularly common in the Plains states of the United States, often during the morning or midday hours following convective thunderstorm activity
Fairy circles are circular patches of land barren of plants, varying between 2 and 15 metres (7 and 49 ft) in diameter, often encircled by a ring of stimulated growth of grass. Until 2014, the phenomenon was only known to occur in the arid grasslands of the Namib desert in western parts of Southern Africa, being particularly common in Namibia. In that year, ecologists were alerted to similar rings of vegetation outside of Africa, in a part of the Pilbara in Western Australia.
A light pillar is an atmospheric optical phenomenon in which a vertical beam of light appears to extend above and/or below a light source. The effect is created by the reflection of light from tiny ice crystals that are suspended in the atmosphere or that comprise high-altitude clouds (e.g. cirrostratus or cirrus clouds). If the light comes from the Sun (usually when it is near or even below the horizon), the phenomenon is called a sun pillar or solar pillar. Light pillars can also be caused by the Moon or terrestrial sources, such as streetlights.
16.Mendenhall glacier in Alaska
There are beautiful ice caves underneath the Mendenhall glacier in Alaska.Discover Mendenhall Ice Caves in Juneau, Alaska: Breathtakingly blue walls shimmer. There are scant few places where you can experience every stage of the rocks and under frozen bright-blue ceilings inside a partially hollow glacier.
17.Salar de Uyuni
Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desertlike, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands. Its otherworldly expanse can be observed from central Incahuasi Island. Though wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it harbors many pink flamingos.
18.Frozen trees called Sentinels of the Arctic guard the north.
In one of Bonfadini's recent series titled “Sentinels of the Arctic”, the photographer captured images of snow covered landscape in Finnish Lapland during last winter where temperatures ranging from -40 to –15 degrees centigrade can completely engulf trees in solid ice.
Volcanic lightning arises from colliding, fragmenting particles of volcanic ash (and sometimes ice), which generate static electricity within the volcanic plume. ... But unlike ordinary thunderstorms, volcanic lightning can also occur before any ice crystals have formed in the ash cloud.
Blue Lava is the cooler name for a chemical reaction that creates electric-blue flames from the Kawah Ijen crater on the island, Java.
