Eternal storm from Venezuela.

Eternal storm from Venezuela.

This is, without any doubt, an unusual natural phenomenon. There is a place on Earth where thunderstorms are more common than sunlight. This place is located where the Catatumbo River flows into Lake Marakibo. It is there, at an altitude of more than five kilometers, that storm clouds constantly collide, and as a result, we get a thunderstorm that lasts 150 days a year, 10 hours a day. Lightning in this place is a frequent guest (280 lightning per hour, this is not a toy).
Scientists believe that the “eternal storm” is the most powerful ozone generator on Earth. Perhaps, without the “eternal thunderstorm”, the entire planet would be constantly exposed to the destructive effects of powerful ultraviolet rays with a wavelength of more than 34 nm.
It is also interesting that the “eternal storm” has served as a lighthouse for sailors for a very long time. Fish rain from Honduras.
None of the inhabitants of this small country can be surprised by such a rare, seemingly, phenomenon as fish rain. This type of rain is quite common in the town of Ioro. All this happens when spring ends and summer begins. It is at this time that thunderstorms begin, lightning flashes, thunder thunders… After everything is over, the locals come out of their homes and collect … no, not mushrooms – fish, and live. Since 1998, the town has even hosted a Fish Rain Festival. Tree-climbing goats.
Actually, these goats can also be called a unique natural phenomenon. This photo is not a photo montage, it is a real goat from a real Morocco. There, goats love to climb trees, eating the tender greens of the argon tree. In addition to the leaves, goats also eat nuts, which they can not digest.
So the locals have adapted to collect nuts, which are mmm. they are excreted from the body of goats in a natural way. What for? Yes, to give argon oil, which is a valuable component of various cosmetics.
In our time, this type of nuts simply disappears, because there are so many goats, and the locals began to extract wood at a very fast pace. Red rain.
In Kerala, one of the states of India, from July 25 to September 23, 2001, it rained red. For two whole months, the” bloody ” rain stained the white clothes of the Hindus. Of course, there is no relationship with the blood here – it’s just that the raindrops contained a lot of seaweed spores.
And at first, there were even rumors that the red color was caused by the presence of some extraterrestrial cells in the raindrops. In general, scientists quickly clarified the situation. But, of course, red rain still surprises many and many – it can not be treated as an ordinary rain, it looks very scary. The longest waves on Earth.
In Brazil, twice a year, from February to March, the Atlantic Ocean seems to ” oppress” The Amazon, and the waters of this river form the longest wave in the world. Pororok waves, as they are called by the locals, can roll for half an hour. You can hear the wave half an hour before it appears, and the sound is so powerful that it often causes trees to fall and local buildings to collapse.
But surfers, not afraid of anything, expect this wave. The city of San Domingos has even hosted an annual championship dedicated to these long waves since 1999. By the way, the athlete Picuruta Salazar set in 2003 a record that has not yet been broken by anyone. It rolled on a wave of about 12.5 kilometers. It took him 37 minutes. “Black Sun” Denmark.
So the locals call the flocks of starlings that flock from all over Europe to this country. The result is a very bizarre figure, which the inhabitants of Denmark call the Black Sun. This phenomenon can be observed from about March to mid-April. Fire rainbow from Idaho.
An amazing natural phenomenon can be observed in the state of Idaho, USA, when the sun rises high in the sky. At the same time, the Sun’s rays pass through high-altitude clouds consisting of ice crystals in the form of hexagons. Sunlight is refracted in these crystals in a bizarre way, and as a result, we see a “fiery rainbow”. This phenomenon is by no means local, it can extend over several hundred square miles.
