Incredible phenomena of nature
The world around us is full of mysteries and secrets. We are accustomed and often see the phenomena of nature that occur every day. But how can the Earth surprise us? What incredible phenomena have we never heard of?
In Venezuela, an unusual phenomenon of nature arises over the Catatumbo River. Every night (up to 200 days a year) for ten hours the sky is illuminated by lightning.
They appear so often that they look like a continuous pulsating glow (more than a million discharges occur per year). The natural phenomenon can be seen from a distance of four hundred kilometers.
The element of nature strikes us with another unusual phenomenon - a fiery rainbow.
This is a rare optical effect: a horizontal rainbow appears against the background of cirrus clouds. At the same time, there is a feeling that the sky is glowing with colored lights.
Penitents of snow
Another striking phenomenon of nature is Kalgaspor. These unusual formations on the snow surface are inclined needles up to six meters high.
The name was chosen because the phenomenon from a distance resembles a crowd of monks who knelt in prayer. At the base of Everest, needles were found up to thirty meters high.
The environment has prepared for us another strange surprise - snow in the form of rolls.
This is a rare natural phenomenon formed under the gusts of wind that drive snow on the ground, such formations are hollow inside and can reach seventy centimeters in diameter.
The following phenomenon arises as a result of the movement of cold water flows from glaciers; due to its high density and low temperature, it quickly solidifies and forms hollow ice tubes.
Reaching the bottom, the icicle forms a kind of web, which spreads and kills all living things. This natural phenomenon was first filmed in Antarctica.

In Morocco, domestic goats graze not only on the land, but also in the trees, where they find food that is lacking on the land due to the arid climate.
From time to time shepherds move the herd from one tree to another.The main diet - greens and fruits of argan trees.
Clash of the seas
In the north of Denmark there is an unusual phenomenon of nature. In the city of Skagen face the North and Baltic seas. On the water surface you can see a certain border, which is distinguished by color and flow, it is called halocline. This phenomenon is related to the difference in salt content, which is usually very high.
Despite full compliance with the laws of physics, the view of the two colliding seas leaves an indelible impression, because such a fact seems impossible.
However, the people of Skagen are accustomed not only to an amazing natural phenomenon, but also to crowds of tourists, who tirelessly come here every year.
Similar phenomena also exist in other places, for example, a clear boundary is visible at the meeting point of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
We often see lightning in the sky, but there is another, more unusual natural phenomenon associated with electricity - the lights of St. Elmo.
These light sources are formed from a large electrical voltage in the air: for example, after a strong thunderstorm, they look like small stars.
The elements of fire
One of the most unusual and colorful phenomena is the firestorm. It arises from the collision of several sources of ignition and strong gusts of wind, such a pillar can rise five kilometers in height (at a temperature of about a thousand degrees Celsius), destroying everything in its path.
This phenomenon proves once again that humanity, for all its strength, has no power over nature.
