14 incredible natural phenomena that truly exist you may not have known

Nature is full of mysteries, and these are extremely rare phenomena that you may have never heard of.

Nature is full of mysteries, and these are extremely rare phenomena that you may have never heard of.

1. Cloud hole – the circle opens to heaven

Consider this: on a cold day with a cloudy horizon full of clouds, you suddenly notice a huge hole visible through the sky. This is known as a cloud hole. When a large number of small ice crystals burst into the cloud layer, water droplets evaporate. Despite being explained by physical laws, this phenomenon is still extremely miraculous.

2. Lava on Hawaii beach

The Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted in May 2018. It started spewing ash into the air and erupting dense lava tubes into the Pacific Ocean. It also travels a long distance, destroying Hawaii’s largest natural freshwater lake. It also grew on the beaches, filling Kapoho Bay and extending new lands nearly a mile into the sea.

3. West Comet near the Sun in 1976

The West Comet was one of the brightest objects to travel through the solar system in 1976, according to NASA. Its nucleus divides into four pieces, revealing its lengthy tail in a magnificent sight. This was one of the few comet cracks seen at the time.

4. Comet Hale Bopp is seen above Stonehenge’s ancient stone circle

In 1997, comet Hale-Bop orbited the sun and became one of the brightest comets ever seen. It’s a long-term “gift,” as it may be seen for more than 18 months with the naked eye (a record).

5. Pyroclastic flow creates volcanic clay

When a volcano erupts, it creates a pyroclastic flow, which is a fast-moving hot stream of gas and ash. These materials can sometimes blend and combine with extreme temperatures to produce an incredible light show.

6. Frozen waves were discovered on the Croatian coast

These giant waves were pushed out by a strong storm in 2012, and subsequently froze at temperatures below zero. This has blanketed the shore of Senj, Croatia in hard ice that resembles ice cream.

7. Desert “revives” and blooms

In California, “mega blooms” occur around once every ten years. This phenomena necessitates the ideal “storm” of conditions, which include steady rain, mild temperatures, and light breezes.

When thousands of wildflowers bloom at the same time, the desert will transform into a vibrant scene. Nature has given us a magnificent gift!

8. The super blood moon rises behind the Parthenon in 2018

A total lunar eclipse that also happens to be a super moon is a somewhat uncommon occurrence. There have been 87 total lunar eclipses in the twenty-first century, with just 28 of them being super moons.

For the first time in decades, skywatchers can observe a “swollen” and lunar eclipse combining for the first time in decades, bathing the moon in intense red light.

9. Cloud bubbles

We are not experiencing hallucinations when we see the sky glow brightly as though enormous soap bubbles are floating; instead, we are viewing cloud bubbles. Only when very uniform droplets of water divert the sunset light can this happen.

10. The Himalayas first appeared after 30 years

The substantial reduction in pollution in April 2020 restored the splendor of the Dhauladhar mountain range. This is a Himalayan mountain range, and we can now be seen from Jalandhar, which is 143 miles distant.

11. Midnight sunset reflected in a waterfall in Iceland

The sun is still visible at midnight local time in Iceland during the summer months, and we may watch the sunset around 1:30. The sunset is shining at a height of 196 feet on the Seljalandsfoss waterfall in this photo, which is stunning!

12. Rainbow waterfall is rare in Yosemite National Park

The spectacle of Fallveve waterfall in Yosemite National Park turning into a rainbow was only seen by a few lucky visitors. This is an excellent illustration of what happens when sunlight reflects off water droplets.

These photos appear to have been manipulated, yet nature is full of color and inventiveness.

13. Volcanic lightning

Volcanoes can, in fact, produce lightning.

It’s difficult to research, but scientists have a few theories regarding what causes it. One of the most common is when ash picks up so much friction during an eruption that static electricity builds up and creates lightning.

14. Halos

A bird flies underneath an atmospheric phenomenon known as a “sun dog” in the sky over Seaside Heights, New Jersey, May 14, 2013.

Like fire rainbows, halos require just the right formation of ice crystals in clouds high above the surface of the Earth to bend light from the sun into a perfect ring.
