Rare natural phenomenon, which you did not know
About this does not tell in the weather forecast.
The weather can be good or bad, and can be amazing. Fire tornadoes, volcanic lunar rainbow and lightning - this is only part of the real-world phenomena, which now and then occur on Earth.
Introducing natural phenomena that occur around the globe, and are very rare.
Braynikl (finger death)
We used to see icicles hanging from the roof. However, the Arctic have special icicles that hang under the water and are deadly. This phenomenon was discovered nearly 30 years ago, but to photograph the process of his birth was only in 2011 the team channel BBC.
Reaching the bottom of the funnel does not stop and continues to spread along the bottom. For 15 minutes, such a structure is capable of destroying all living organisms in an area of a few meters. That's what they called her "icy finger of death."
There are many clouds, which are specially shaped and special causes of. Strange and unusual look tubular cloud. They look like whether on the sections of pipes, or a plurality of suspended balls, tint changes from white to blue-gray.
In an atmosphere of cloud begin to form pockets filled with large water droplets or ice crystals, which are under its weight literally sink into the fresh air.
Misty rainbow - is another optical phenomenon in the atmosphere, like the well-known over the rainbow. It is formed by diffraction light and water droplet size of approximately 0, 02 mm. See it respectively only during fog.
Lightning Catatumbo - a natural phenomenon that occurs in the northwest of Venezuela, where the river of the same name flows into Lake Maracaibo. It is here that the warm air of the Caribbean meets the methane from the nearby swamps. Consequently, there is a lightning that strikes about 200 days a year, and continuous storm session lasts about 10 hours.
For a long time, this place served as a landmark for sailors - it can be seen from a distance of over 400 km. It is believed that it is the largest natural ozone generator.
This phenomenon is much easier to see in a fantasy quest than in reality. It takes a lot of factors: the full moon must be low, the sky still be dark, and the lights should be placed in front of powerful waterfall.
only the white rainbow can be seen due to human physiology. There may come to the aid of a modern camera that takes a long exposure.
Gloria - another phenomenon associated with the diffraction of light in the clouds or fog droplets. This weather phenomenon can be detected only when the light is behind, and the reflected light returns from the cloud directly to the viewer.
The rainbow halo around his own shadow interpreted by Buddhists as the degree of human enlightenment.

The sea can turn into foam in any part of the world, but most often it occurs in the southern hemisphere. For the appearance of foam in the sea water should be a large concentration of algae, salt and some waste, which together have become something of a shampoo.
While foaming happens only occasionally. But with the further pollution of the ocean, it may acquire a permanent character.
In addition to the lightning that we see from Earth, occur above thunderclouds powerful flares aimed into space. They are characterized by a pronounced blue or red and cover distances up to 100 km in length.
only at low altitude flashes can be seen from Earth. Now conducted their study with the ISS.
This natural phenomenon occurs when a column of hot, rising air interacts with the fire on the ground or becomes its cause.
Fire tornado is a vertical swirl fire in the air.
Morning Glory - a rare meteorological phenomenon, which is formed at the boundary of the advancing cold front. Cloud obtained up to 1000 km in length and rotates around a longitudinal axis. Its rolling speed can reach 60 km / h.
Morning Glory is like a tornado, which is lying on its side.
Water tornadoes look like a small tornado of water. Although the part may seem that the water is literally sucked liquid spout located above the surface and is composed of water droplets formed by condensation.
Volcanic activity provides a very "nutritious" environment for the spectacular discharges, and in several ways. There are two types of lightning: 1) spurting out of the crater and the associated electrical processes in magma, 2) occurring in clouds and friction associated with volcanic ash.
Because of the large number of solid particles of volcanic ash such storms also called dirty.
