10 amazing sights that really exist in nature

1. Red tide

Red tide is a harmful ecological phenomenon in which certain phytoplankton, protozoa or bacteria in seawater explode and multiply or gather to a high degree under specific environmental conditions, causing the water body to change color. It is not necessarily all red.

2. Foxfire

Commonly known as will-o’-the-wisp. The flame when phosphine burns. Phosphine is produced when phosphorus reacts with water or alkali, which is a colorless gas that can ignite spontaneously. Phosphine is released when human and animal corpses decompose and ignite spontaneously. The white with bluish-green flames sometimes seen in the wild at night are phosphorus fires.

3. Columnar basalt

Rocks are dense, hard, brittle, and easily weathered. After being affected by geological structures, they are compressed, broken, and developed, forming typical columnar joints, also known as cleavage joints, which are signs of crustal movement (tectonic movement).

4. Fire Rainbow

The circum-Earth rainbow arc phenomenon is a rare phenomenon with a very low probability of occurrence. It usually occurs when the sun is at a high altitude and its light passes through cirrus clouds with more ice crystals at high altitudes. Cirrus clouds with ice crystals refract light to form different bands of the visible spectrum. Due to its rarity, the fire rainbow phenomenon has rarely been photographed so far. So if you are lucky, you may see a fire rainbow once or twice in your life.

5. Haab Storm

Haboob storms are hot, humid and strong winds that appear on the southern edge of the Sahara in northern Sudan. They often appear in summer with uncertain directions and last about 3 hours. They are usually accompanied by sandstorms, sometimes heavy rain, thunder and lightning, and small tornadoes. When the air mass moves, it looks like A wall of black or yellow sand hundreds of meters high.

6. Mammatus clouds

Mammatus clouds are a rare natural phenomenon in nature and are considered as famous as thunderstorms, swirling flames, auroras, red tides, etc. Its peculiar appearance makes many people think that a big storm or thunderstorm is about to come.

7. Rainbow Bark

When you look at these colorful barks, don’t think that someone deliberately poured colored paint on them. The “coat” of this tree species, called “rainbow eucalyptus”, is purely natural. Walking into the woods will make you feel like you have entered a fairy tale world. These rainbow eucalyptus trees grow mainly in New Guinea, New Britain and Sulawesi.

8. Light Pillar

This magical landscape is usually caused by the afterglow of sunset.

9. Fire Tornado

Fire tornadoes, also known as fire monsters and fire whirlwinds, refer to a rare phenomenon in which when a fire occurs and the temperature and thermal energy gradient of the air meet certain conditions, the flames form a vertical vortex and plunge straight into the sky like a whirlwind. Rotating flames mostly occur in brush fires. The height of the flames ranges from 30 to 200 feet. The duration of the flames is also limited, usually only a few minutes, but if the wind is strong, it can last longer.

10. Blue Hole

It is a sinkhole that exists on the seabed, also known as an underwater cave. There are blue holes in many places around the world, such as Belize, the Bahamas, and the Red Sea. Due to the lack of water circulation, marine life cannot live in it, but it is of scientific research value. Currently, scientists have discovered many ancient fossils and the remains of some animals at the bottom of the blue hole.
