% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Earth show off so many strange and wonderful displays. Here are ten of the most amazing and unusual.



Are you prepare?






Pententes are a snow formation in the form of narrow balades that can be found on very high altitude glaciers where the air in dry, oriented towards the general direction of the sun.


They can range in size from a few centimeters to over 5 meters (16 ft).





Pitch lake is a very unique lake located in Trinidad. It is actually the largest natural desosit of asphalt in the world, dating from the Miocene period. Reported to be 75 meters (246 ft) deep, Lake Pitch remains unexplored as the locals think it should be.


Pitch Lake has fascinated explores an scientists since its discovery. There are countless theories as to the mass, source and origin of the asphalt.





Sailing stones are a geological phenomenon most often abserved in the Death Valley, California. At the Racetrack playa dry lake bed, rocks more is long tracks without any interviews.


The force behind their movement is not confirmed yet, though several hypotheres exist.





Red tides is a type of algal bloom caused by a species of dimoflagelates, which giver a red color to the water.


At night, these tiny light – producing organisms emit short flashes when disturbed creating astonishing views of bioluminescent oceans.





Raining animals is a rare meteorological phenomenon, reported in many countries throughout history.


The animals most likely to fall from the sky are fish, froge and birds… but there have been reports of worms and spiders raining down as well.


Meteorologists are still insure of the cause, but the currently favored explanation involves waterspouts a special type of waters tornado in which animals could get sucked up.





Ice circles are a natural phenomenon obseved in cold climates such as scandinavia and North America.


Looking like an anomalous circular slab of ice rotating in slow moving water… they occur when accelerating water creates a force called “Rotational shear”, which breaks of a chunk of ice and spins it around.


The perfect circles created can vary in size from a few centimeters to gigantic scales.





Sometimes called “Jack-O’-Lantern”, there small floating light are often seen floating over bogs.


Frequently observed in groups that display a variety of movement patterns. They’re said to recide and disappear if approached.


Gas or other emanations could possibly create thin kind of mirage but scientists are still insure about its precise cause.





A fire whirl is a phenomenon in which a fire, under certain conditions of air currents and temperature acquires a vertical vorticity and forms a tornado – like column of fire, which can rapidly grow to enormous sizes.


During the 2003 Canberra bushfires, a fire devil with a diameter of nearly 500 meters (1640 ft) was documented.





This rare phenomenon described as a glowing sphere of electricity was reported for hundreds of years hovering over the ground, floating through walls and even killing people.


Scientists still cannot clearly understand the phenomenon, but some recently suggested that ball lightning may be nothing more than a glowing gas formed by an electric field, like a plasma ball.





A brinicles, also called the “ice finger of death”, is an icy phenomenon observed in polar regions. They occur when cold, dense and rapilly sinking brine contacts the warmer occean freezing it and creating huge ice stalactites under the surface.


This icy “tube” will descend untill hitting the floor, where it will freeze anything it comes into contact with killing all life in its way, and eventually forming a deadly “highway” along the ocean floor.
