10 natural phenomena, whose existence you wouldn't believe Source:

When you think about the bizarre natural phenomena, which can not be typically presented to the strangeness of the cosmos: the red square nebula, rain glass or a magic island on Saturn's largest moon Titan. But we need not go so far as to marveled. Our own world is full of fascinating natural phenomena. Most of you (and me too) had no idea that these miracles exist… until today. Now we will change it.

the

"Green lantern"

Let's start with what we all know: the Sun. This yellow ball of gas around which our planet rotates. The thing that makes us warm throughout the day. Familiar?

Yes, the sun is familiar to all who have seen sunset and sunrise. But under certain conditions it is possible to see something absolutely incredible: the sun changes color and becomes green.

This phenomenon is easiest to observe at sunset, and it lasts a second or two. Therefore, it is called "flash". The atmosphere acts as a prism, splitting the sun's light into individual colors.

Find a place with a beautiful view of the horizon and the full disk of the sun, wait until sunset and keep your eyes open. Enjoy this short flash, knowing that few saw it.

the

Endless wave

The Dream of every surfer is a wave that continues and continues. In Brazil this is called "pororoca". This wave can move over 800 kilometers, not slowing down, being 3.7 metres in height, within half an hour.

This Occurs from the fact that the tides of the Atlantic meet the mouth of the Amazon river. The sound when it is born, you can hear 30 minutes before the arrival of the wave. As this wave gathers river trash, maybe even a whole tree, this wave is also very dangerous to run.

the

Blue lava

One of the most devastating events in our world is the eruption of the volcano. But in Indonesia, the crater cava, Ijen on the island of Java erupts blue lava instead of the traditional yellow and red that we are used to seeing, though not with his eyes.

Most interesting in the lava reaction that it produces. She, of course, not blue. Color provides combustion of the high sulfur concentration in the area of the volcano. When sulphur burns, it burns with a blue flame. Therefore, when concentrated sulfur comes in contact with lava, that becomes blue.

In reality, it seems like the blue lights float down the mountainside. This phenomenon can be evident only at night.

the

the Lake that turns to stone

What you usually see are not used, so that the animal mummies in the backdrop of a calm lake. But lake Natron in Tanzania just really is. He has a very high acidity, due to which the skin and eyes untrained animals literally corrodes. While the lake has a very lively environment that has adapted to life in the harsh environment.

Despite this, whenever the animal is unlucky and it dies in the water, his body undergoes mummification. The lake became world-famous after photographer Nick Brandt made a truly horrible pictures of dead animals. He found the dead calf on the beach and put them in a position that they are still alive.

the

Blooming desert

The Desert is known for three features: Sizzling heat, a minimum of flora and fauna, as well as the lack of water. But in the Atacama desert, all just waiting for a good opportunity to prove himself. Sometimes this desert proves that they are able to bloom.

Flowering occurs between September and November and only in years when rainfall is unusually high. Locals call it the "desierto florido" (flowering desert). An unusual event occurs every five to seven years. However, climate change, prolonged heavy rains around the globe and historically record-breaking rain has led to the fact that the desert began to bloom every few years.

the

White rainbow

A rainbow is a phenomenon that is extremely nice to watch and that is not uncommon. Water acts as a prism, splitting light into the visible spectrum of colors. But sometimes the rainbow shows a very unusual effect.

Colorless rainbow is born as well as other rainbow: light passes through drops of water. But in this case white rainbow appears when formed fog. Mist much less. As a result, more color is lost as they passed through.

In this rare rainbow you can see the color but they are so weak that our eyes would be difficult to distinguish between them.

the

Rainbow trees

Do You like rainbows? And the trees? And rainbow trees?

Meet the rainbow eucalyptus (eucalyptus deglupta). It can be found in the Philippines and in other tropical areas, and it can grow up to 76 meters.

Most of the year this tree is smooth orange bark. But in the summer the bark falls off, exposing the multi-colored bark, which gives the tree the "rainbow" name. Stripes of green, red, grey and even violet like a rainbow running down the bark.

the

Hairy ice

If you've lived in places where snow falls, you've probably seen many forms that can take the ice. But have you seen this?

This hairy ice. It grows only wet winter nights and melts during the day. Ice crystals are formed on a rotten tree, which has mycelium i.e. roots of the fungi living on the dust.

Actually, fungi and cause the ice crystals make the shape of hair. They are extremely difficult to detect, because any snow fallen on these crystals to hide them. So next time when you get past the trees in winter, look carefully. Maybe you'll get lucky.

the

Ice flowers

Like a hairy ice, these formations are beautiful to look at and very rare. The main difference is how and where they formed. Ice flowers appear over water or wet surfaces.

When the cold moist air above the water surface is saturated, any defects on the surface of the water begins to form ice crystals. Only this time, they take the form of flowers, and the moisture in the air helps them to flourish.

the

Living stones

You can find Stones everywhere. If you look at the Shoe after a walk in the forest trail, surely there will be some uninvited guests. They are dry, hard and rough. But if you're lucky, they might be alive.

Pyura chilensis, which in Spanish is called "Piura", represent like rocks marine invertebrates. They have the signature crimson hue, which they called "bleeding stones". They are usually eaten raw, like oysters, or cooked with rice and salad.
