Flat air clusters, similar to ufological objects, are found in the mountains, where humid winds blow. A lenticular or scientifically lenticular cloud hovers above the ground and remains motionless despite strong winds.
2. Invasion of crabs
The land on Christmas Island, covered with crabs, reminds of the coming of autumn with leaf fall. Looking more closely, you can see that the cover is moving and is made up of millions of red crabs. The crustaceans of the Indian water area live on land, but spawn in coastal waters. The mating season is marked by going ashore and all the roads of the island turn into living crimson carpets.
3. Black murmur
Upon returning home from warm lands, huge flocks of starlings block out the sunlight. The black sun or the heavenly dance of birds takes place in continuous flight, forming bizarre shapes. The speed of a flock of thousands during maneuvers reaches 40 km per hour. The figures are not systematic, but starlings do not collide with each other. The phenomenon is called murmur. It is believed that large flocks of birds, in this way, drive away predators.
4. Phytoneon beaches
As the sun sets, the coastal waves of the Maldivian archipelago are illuminated with neon lights. Illumination arises from the vital activity of phytoplankton, which can be observed from July to February. This is how algae react to stressful situations. Excitement occurs when the waves hit the shore, the surfer's board or boat is in contact with the water, and bare feet are in the sand.
5. Wandering stones
A geological phenomenon found on a prehistoric lake in Death Valley in the western United States. At the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, cobblestones move along the muddy bottom, leaving long footprints in their wake. The largest of them is named Karen and weighs about 350 kg. The stones move independently, but their progress is rather slow. One of the versions of their movement is stormy rains. The wind also drives the stones.
6. Rainbow trees
Eucalyptus trees that grow in Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, China have a rainbow color that changes all the time. This effect is achieved due to age-related detachment of the cortex. The young shell is bright green, which then gradually darkens, acquiring shades of blue and purple, at the end its color changes from pink to crimson.
7. The majestic journey of butterflies
Regal butterflies travel annually across the continent from Canada to Mexico, which is 32 thousand kilometers per kilometer. Their journey is part of a well-timed cycle. It is not known how many Monarch butterflies die during the flight, but peace and hibernation await them in Mexico. They congregate in huge communities, clinging to trees to keep them warm. Occasionally they leave the trees in search of nectar and water. Wintering lasts 5 months, and with the arrival of spring, preparation for the flight. On the way to Canada, some of them will stay in Texas, where they will continue their family.
8. Desert in bloom
A unique phenomenon occurred on the territory of the Chilean Atacama Desert. She was covered with a lilac cloth, consisting of a large number of flowers. The driest place has not seen rain for 400 years. This is due to the current cooling the upper atmosphere and creating a temperature inversion. Despite zero humidity, fogs are frequent guests here. An alternative source of moisture feeds cacti, but in the fall of 2015, the desert underwent a transformation. Locals witnessed the El Niño demonstration. Owing to fluctuations in the parameters of the ocean and the atmosphere, the Atacama bloomed with blue nolana, red bomarei, and yellow gravel of violets.
9. Clouds like udders
Mammathus marsupial clouds are common in the tropics. Their formation occurs due to warm cyclones. The bags or cells of such clouds are clearly distinguishable.In the atmosphere, pockets are formed, filled with water droplets or ice crystals, which, under the weight, fall into clean air. At a low altitude of the Sun above the horizon, they acquire golden or reddish hues. Despite the warning appearance, the clouds do not portend thunderstorms and cataclysms.
10. Underwater patterns
Bizarre patterns on the seabed have been discovered by Japanese divers. It was assumed that the creation, like the Peruvian geoglyphs, belongs to an alien mind. Openwork patterns in the Sea of Japan paint a fugu. The male's task is to lure his partner to the center of the circle, where mating takes place. The grooves serve in the future for the preservation of eggs in one place.
