Aurora Borealis

The lights appear like a lifestream flowing and dancing in the night sky. There are only few countries to witness this phenomenon including Norway, Greenland and Siberia.

Sardine Run

tumblr_n08wnfSTyk1sayrevo1_540Billions of sardines swim along the coast of Africa. The sardines can form a large wall underwater or probably surround an entire whale.  Unfortunately, the sardines aren’t the only one hanging around the water, sharks and other vicious fish may attack the school of fish. If you ever stumble upon a sardine run, don’t try to catch some of them if you happen to witness the great run. 

The Great Blue Hole

This massive submarine sinkhole is 124m deep, no one has ever fully explored the hole. The abyss underneath might lead to new discoveries but that stakes might be dangerous. It would be better if a submarine explores deeper and deeper the hole. Looking at it, the kraken might be hiding there.

Kingdom of Webs

In Wagga Wagga, Australia the spiders come together and work together to cover most of the area with spiderweb. It’s like a haven of cobwebs, sounds like a destination for spiderman.

Abraham Lake

Door to Hell

Seven Colored Earth

This is the result of lava turning into clay materials. Looks like something great came out from something really, really dangerous.

Dirty Thunderstorms

Francisco-Negroni-fire-volcanoWhat is the worst thing you can think off right now? Well after reading about dirty thunderstorms, nothing worse comes to mind. Volcanic plumes sometimes produce lightning that results in the weather phenomenon of dirty and nasty thunderstorms.


Snow Donuts

The donuts only form when the temperature of coldness is perfect and the wind blows them in the right direction to blow away the unnecessary snow in the donut, meaning the middle part.

Believe it or not, these things exist. Nature really has a very mysterious way of providing amusement to humanity. If you are still in doubt about the existence of these phenomena why not travel and see for yourself? Truly nature’s miracle.
