Mother Nature can be cruel at times but there are times when it wows us with its beauties. We are all part of the nature’s beauties as we are all a part of the nature. It may seem almost impossible to some of you that there are things in nature that can take our breath away due to all those technological advancements that may seem much more attractive. But those who think that are wrong. To prove you wrong do-while has made a list of some of the most amazing natural phenomena. Maybe after seeing these photos you would desire to take daily walks more regularly. Thus not only have we provided you with great info but also we have made you healthier. Enjoy!
1. Aurora Borealis
Northern Lights aka Aurora Borealis, also referred to as “Dance of the Spirits”, is a natural phenomenon which is caused by the collision of charged particles directed by the Earth’s magnetic field. It is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in the world. Auroras can be observed at night in the polar regions. These incredible polar lights can be observed between 60 and 72 degrees north and south latitudes, within the Arctic and Antarctic polar circles. This natural phenomena was named after Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas. This light can be seen in green and red colors it truly is a spectacle.
2. Red Tide
Red tide is also known by the name algal bloom in which water algae accumulate rapidly in the water column and the result is discoloration of the water surface. Colors go from purple to almost pink, normally being red or green. It usually occurs in the coastal areas. However, not all algal blooms are dense enough to cause water discoloration but when they are it is a pretty amazing sight.
3. Mammatus Clouds
Mammatus clouds are a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. It is also known as mammatocumulus or the breast cloud due to its shape. They are associated with severe thunderstorms or volcanic ash clouds. Such clouds are an indicator of a forthcoming strong storm or a thunderstorm. They may look beautiful but are in no way harmless.
4. Sailing Stones
Sailing or sliding rocks are a phenomenon hard to explain. Stones and rocks of even hundreds of pounds move along smooth valleys. They move without any human or animal help whatsoever. Rocks may travel parallel for a time, before one changes direction to the left, right, or even back the direction it came from. Some scientists have proposed that a strong combination of winds and icy surfaces is the solution to this mystery. But somehow that explanation doesn’t seem to drink water.
5. Fire Whirls
Also known as fire devil or fire tornado is a rare phenomenon in which fire acquires vertical vortices which can be as high as 30 to 200ft tall. They may be visually impressive but fire whirls can uproot trees up to 15 meters.
