Double Rainbow all the way!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN!?!?!!?!?!
It's like a regular rainbow, except the sun reflects upon two raindrops. =]
Bioluminescent red tide
Bio-luminescence in the water!
Sex! Sex everywhere! When Phytoplankton reproduce, they create a visible thick layer of their reproductive leftovers on the ocean's surface. This is what you see when the ocean is glowing a funky color blue. You can all blame Noctiluca scintillan phytoplankton for this gross, but seemingly beautiful natural phenomenon.
Bio-luminescence is a topic that is studied frequently in recent scientific pursuits. These are actually rotting mushrooms that are glowing in the dark.
You shouldn't get any ideas with these mushrooms, they can make you sick. They aren't for ingesting.
Fire Rainbow-- or known in the scientific world as circumhorizonal arc. Yeah I know. Way less cool then fire rainbow, so for our purposes lets just stick with the cool name. This happens when sunlight hits frozen crystals in high-altitude cirrus clouds.
Mother of Pearl!
Or more accurately known as Nacreous Clouds. They reflect sunlight from below the horizon due to their extremely high altitudes which seem brighter than the clouds that live in the troposphere. Only extreme cold weather makes these clouds possible, making them a rare phenomenon.
Formed when a thich layer of snow falls on top of a layer of ice. When wind and speed are right, chunks of snow can break loose and start rolling. It's kind of like seeing a tumbleweed form.
Found in Devil's Postpil in California as well as in Giant's Causeway in Ireland, these rocks are products of natural volcanic formations.
It's raining cats and dogs! ...Almost.
These incedents are actually true. You can find animals being lifted and carried by high speed winds during watersprouts. Kind of like a tornado made out of water, these natural incidents can carry small animals quite a distance. Usually small fish, frogs, or other little critters.
Really hard to find and gone in the blink of an eye. These clouds are formed when turbulant winds or colliding air masses whip up the bottoms of the cloud layer into fancy shapes and formations.
No. Not caused by an alien landing. But close! This is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs at sunset and sunrise. Happens when the sunlight pierces through most of the earth's atmosphere to reach the human eye. Last's for only a fraction of a second. Don't blink!
You really have to squint to see this one. This phenomenon happens when there are a bunch of ice crystals in the atmosphere and the sun is near the horizon and the sunlight passes through cirrus clouds at the perfect angle.
How did this ice berg earn its stripes?
As water melts, and refreezes on an iceberg overtime, dirt and other particles accumulate on top of it.
Grab your Thunder/Lightning buddy
God of Thunder THOR is upon us!
This is what a cloud to cloud lightning would look like. It's like a network of lightning clouds.
Refer to the movie Ted, with Mark Wahlberg for proper techniques on how to handle thunder and lightning with a buddy.
When air is pushed up into a more stable layer of atmoshpere, it can cause a ripple effect, just like tossing a rock into a pond.
Who knew physics was cool and what not?
Uncovered by erosion, their incredible round shape is said to be created millions of years ago on the ocean floor in a process similar to the formation of oyster pearls.
For anyone who has taken an introductory geology course, you know that this is not the conventional way roundness is achieved in rocks, making this phenomenon especially awesome for science nerds.
