Nature is full of a mysterious phenomenon. Several things are going around us which are unexplained. With the help of our growing technology, we can figure out some facts but still many of them are unexplained.
Here we provide a list of 10 unexplained or unbelievable natural mysterious that amaze us from years, decades or much more.
Located in: Nevada and death valley National Park, California
Racetrack Playa, one of the dry places of the United States contains an amazing natural phenomenon named Sailing stone or moving rocks or sliding rocks. It is an interesting geographical phenomenon where rocks are moving and form long tracks in the valley floor without any animal and human intervention.
Although, the whole truth about the sliding stone mystery has not revealed yet. As per researchers, the sliding is occurring due to a thin ice layer form on the ephemeral pond during winters and when summer comes these ice panels float by the driving force of winds and shove rocks at a speed up to 5 meters per minute. It is an amazing phenomenon to see and understand.
Located in: Goldfields-Esperance, Western Australia
Australia is known for its unusual places and animals but the pink lake has its beauty. It is a well-known lake with a shocking shade of bubblegum pink. Surrounded by a forest of eucalyptus and paperbark trees and a thin ring of sand, this 600m long lake punctuates an excellent landscape.
The more surprising thing is that nobody explains the reason behind the pink color of Lake Spencer. It is assumed that possibly the water contains green algae that accumulate high concentration of red-orange pigment, haloarchaea, a microorganism that appears reddish or high concentration pink brine prawn.
Several tourists watch this amazing location through Helicopter, while those who visit this place from the ground can swim in this lake because it is non-toxic and salty.
Found in: Bright Sundogs are found in Fargo, North Dakota
Pair of bright color spots formed on the one or both sides of the sun is known as Sundogs or mock sun or parhelion. It is an optical atmospheric phenomenon formed when sunlight is refracted by the ice crystals in the atmosphere.
Sundogs can be visible anywhere in the world in any season but it is best seen when the sun is near the horizon and on the horizontal plane as the observer of the ice crystals.
Found in: The Maldives, San Diego, and other sea areas
In some places, we see seawater shines like the blue sky. It looks like a fairy tale story. Have you ever wondered why? It is due to the phenomenon “Bioluminescence”.
It is the production and emission of light by living organisms. It occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, some fungi, microorganism including some bioluminescent bacteria and terrestrial invertebrates such as fireflies.
Morning Glory Cloud
Found in: Burketown and Normanton, Australia
Morning Glory Cloud also is known as tube-shaped cloud or the highways of the sky are rare meteorological phenomenon observed in different locations of the world. This beautiful scene can be seen in the morning in the southern part of the Gulf of Carpentaria in Northern Australia.
These roll clouds are 1,000 KM long to 2,000 KM high and often found 100 to 200 meter above the ground. Sometimes one cloud is form and sometimes rolls of 10 clouds are form.
Although the reason behind the morning clouds is not clear though several types of research, concluded that it was formed due to sea breezes that develop over the peninsula and gulf.
Zhangye National Geopark
Located in: Linze country and Sunan Country, China
The most beautiful landform in China, Zhangye National Geopark is known for its colorful rock formations. It is the top tourist place with a series of access and boardwalks roads.
These are an unusual collection of colored rocks which are sharp, smooth and several hundred meters tall. The beautiful rocks are the resultant of sandstone deposition and other minerals that happened 24 million years before.
Located in: East Antarctica’s McMurdo Dry Valleys
Below the snowy white glacier and Bonney lake, you found a beyond imagination fall of scarlet-red blood known as Blood Falls.
This visually appealing beauty is created about two million years ago. When the hyper-saline body of water became trapped beneath Taylor Glacier, isolated from light, heat, and oxygen. As the saltwater trickles through a fissure in the glacier, it reacts with the oxygen in the air to create this spectacular, rust-hued cascade.
Found in: the Arctic and Antarctic Ocean
In the night, a fantastic and amazing lightning view is seen in the Arctic and Antarctic Ocean which is known is Aurora. This eye-catching lightning is formed when the sun electrically charged particles strike the magnetosphere of the earth.
Aurora also known as the polar star or northern star or southern light can be predominately seen in high latitude regions or near the pole star.
Found in: Earthquake-prone areas
It is a natural phenomenon in which special colored lights can be seen before, during or after the earthquake in the sky. The effect is also filmed in some movies but the reason behind this beautiful scene is not explained yet.
Found in: Volcano prone area like Mount Rinjani
We all heard out thunder lightning occur during rainy seasons. But have you ever heard about volcanic lightning?
As per the study, when the fragmented particle of volcanic ash collides, then it generates static lightning within the volcanic plume which is known as “Volcanic Lightning”. The first observation of this threatening lightning is done by Pliny the Younger in 79 AD.
