Below we will show you 8 unexplained phenomena of nature that will leave you speechless:
1 – Morning glory cloud
Morning glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon that can be observed in September and October in the south of the Gulf of Carpentaria, in the northern part of Australia. A morning glory cloud is a cloud in the form of a roll that can reach up to 1000 km long, 1 to 2 km of height and that can travel at speeds of up to 60 km/h.
The aboriginal people of the area explained that the cloud is an omen which indicates an increase in the population of birds.
To this day they still don’t really know why or how these clouds are so spectacularly formed. Some experts explain that it could be due to an exact combination of sea breezes and changes in humidity, but up to now, no computer model has been able to accurately predict this strange weather event.
2 – Cities in the sky
On April 21, 2017, the citizens of Jieyang, China, were surprised to see a city floating on the clouds. Interestingly, this was not the only time that something like that happened. The same floating cities were recorded in five other different locations of China in little more than six years.
These events have given rise to all sorts of speculation and hypothesis ranging from a possible visit of aliens to the second coming of Christ.
Well, the truth is that there is a possible explanation. This event could be due to a strange weather phenomenon is known as “Fata Morgana”, a mirage, or optical illusion of duplication, which is due to a temperature inversion. Although, of course, this would be a plausible explanation if the pictures that appear in the sky were no different to those that appear on the horizon just below them.
3 – Gelatin stellar
Rain, snow, sleet, and hail. This is practically all that one would expect that it could fall from the sky. As strange as it may seem, and despite the accuracy with which we can track and predict the precipitation, there is something that has fallen out of the sky of which we have absolutely no knowledge: the gelatin stellar.
The jelly star is a gel-like substance, translucent often found on the grass or the trees and disappears in a very short time.
You’re probably thinking that some scientist will be pleased to investigate this strange substance to discover its origin, right? Well, more or less. Some think that it is some type of slime mold, organisms that are neither fungi nor bacteria and reproduce by spores.
Others believe that it may be a type of cyanobacteria called Nostoc, which when wet with rain, they swell up and become balls of gelatinous yellow, brown, or black. Be that as it may, the truth is still undiscovered.
4 – Star Tabby
The universe is ridiculously huge. In it, there are thousands of millions of galaxies that perhaps our descendants may explore in the future. However, we do not need to abandon even the Milky Way to find wonders that go beyond our understanding, such as, for example, the Star of Tabby.
Known as KIC 8462852 and nicknamed the star of Tabby in honor of its discoverer, Tabetha Boyajian, is one of the more than 150,000 stars that has been observed by the space telescope Kepler. However, this star has a peculiarity that makes it unique, for some reason that we still ignore the celestial body suffers a drastic drop of light intermittently.
In general, the decreases in starlight indicate that a planet is passing in front of it. The star of Tabby is strange in this sense because the intensity of your light drops to 20%, a huge amount in comparison with other stars that we have observed.
The explanations for this strange activity of the light vary greatly, from large groups of planets that pass (very unlikely), to the large accumulation of dust (which is not normal for a star of the age of Tabby) or the activity of aliens (the hypothesis more interesting).
One of the most widespread theories is that an alien civilization is using the star for energy.
5 – The great attractor
In the 1970s, we started to study a strange force around 150-250 million light-years away that was attracting the Milky Way and many other nearby galaxies. Due to the way in which the stars of the Milky Way are positioned, we cannot see what is causing the traction, for that it has simply been called “The Great Attractor”.
In 2016, a group of international scientists was able to see beyond the Milky Way using a radio telescope and discovered 883 galaxies grouped in that same area. Although some believe that this fact fixes the problem, others suggest that many of these galaxies were dragged to that point as is the case with our own and that the true cause is still unknown.
6 – Bloody sky
As the reports, the residents of Chalchuapa, El Salvador, saw in April 2016 how a crimson color stained the sky for a minute before fading and leaving the atmosphere with a pink tinge. Many Christians think that the flash of red was the sign of the advent of the Apocalypse.
Some possible scientific explanations argue that this light could be a side effect of the meteor showers per year that is often seen in that area. What is certain is that this explanation is unlikely, because, the sky turning red is a phenomenon that has never before been witnessed.
7 – The meteorite of Tunguska
On 30 June 1908, near the river Tunguska, in Siberia, a huge ball of fire rushed from the sky to explode about 6 miles across the surface of the Earth. The explosion ended the life of many animals and wiped out entire forests.
Most scientists believe the fireball was an asteroid or a meteor that just exploded before it could enter into contact with the ground due to the atmospheric pressure, the composition of the same or other factors.
The problem is that there’s no crater, hand no weather materials have been recovered. Some experts believe that the space object may have been composed primarily of ice and that for this reason left no evidence.
8 – Rain of animals
Although it is not a common phenomenon, the precipitation of animals from the sky is a real weather phenomenon. Some examples include frogs, tadpoles, spiders, fish, eels, snakes, and worms.
The most widely accepted theory to explain this phenomenon, argues that these animals were elevated in a natural way by strong typhoons or tornadoes. Unfortunately, this fact has never been registered by the scientific community.
