8 Unique and Amazing Natural Phenomena in the World – Nature does keep many secrets, many amazing natural phenomena that occur in several locations in the world. You can visit some and indeed serve as tourist attractions and not a few natural phenomena that should not be seen or visited due to security concerns.
This natural phenomenon that resembles a beam of light above the sky with a variety of amazing colors. This phenomena occurs due to the interaction between the magnetic field of a planet and charged particles emitted by the sun. You can see directly aurora in various countries close to the North Pole (for Aurora Borealis) and the South Pole (for Aurora Australis).
This phenomenon will surely remind you of one of the X-man characters, Storm, who has the power to control lightning. Yes, the events that occur every year at Catatumbo, Venezuela is indeed arguably scary and cool for those who rarely see it. However, for the Venezuelan people it has become commonplace. This phenomenon will look very clear at night.
Moeraki Boulders (Spherical Boulders)
As the name suggests, this natural phenomenon is a large, spherical stone, on Koekohe Beach, New Zealand. If you think this round stone is formed because of human work, you’re wrong! This stone was formed 60 million years ago and is purely formed by nature, precisely on the seabed and now can be seen by humans, as a result of coastal erosion.
A river under the sea. Maybe that’s a brief explanation to explain Cenote Angelita. Located on the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico, is a hole with a diameter of 30 m with a depth of 60 m. Which is quite unique from this cave is that the water in the first 30 m is freshwater and below it is salt water at a depth of 60 m. At this depth you can also see the river and trees in it, awesome right?
You definitely agree if sea water looks blue during the day, right? Then, how if there is sea water that looks blue at night? Not only plain blue, but bright and luminous blue. How did it happen? This event is called Bio Luminescence, produced by living things (plankton) due to certain chemical reactions. Usually this light will appear when the waves break due to “stirred” water. Here are some places where you can easily see this amazing phenomenon:
- Cairns, Australia
- Gippsland Lakes, Victoria, Australia
- Bali, Indonesia
- Ton Sai, Krabi, Thailand
- Toyama Bay, Japan
- Reethi Beach, Maldives
- Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
Morning Glory Cloud
Hearing his name, maybe you will remember the song from the Oasis band. No, but this is a natural phenomenon! What kind of natural phenomenon is the morning glory? Morning Glory is a phenomenon where clouds are in the form of a roll and extend up to 1000 kilometers above a height of 2 kilometers, but not infrequently also at an altitude of only about 100-200 meters above the earth’s surface. This phenomenon can be found all over the world, but only in the northern part of the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia where this cloud can be predicted and observed.
Gateway to Hell (Door to Hell)
In Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan, there are natural phenomena in which there is natural gas coming out of the gap of rocks and causing a very large and fiery roundabout, so that it is called Gateway to Hell or Door to Hell. Many people say this place is like a picture of hell on earth. How terrible isn’t it?
Seeing clouds in the sky is normal, but what if there is a cloud that looks like a UFO? This natural phenomenon occurs because of the presence of moist air which is forced to flow upwards around the peak of the Mount. It usually occurs on mountains that are quite high.
Such are the amazing natural phenomena that exist in the world. How? Do you want to see it right away?
