9 RIDICULOUSLY COOL
NATURAL PHENOMENA
SNOW DONUTS
These rare shapes are formed when a mass of snow either
falls or is blown by the wind. If it manages to catch on to
some other snow, and gravity or the wind is in its favor,
then the new snowball will roll itself in the exact same
way we all used to. In this case, though, the middles tend
to collapse to create a donut shape.
SUNDOG
Here' s another phenomenon that has to do with ice
crystals in the atmosphere. Like fire rainbows, sun dogs
are massive halos in the sky as a result of light
refraction, though in this case, they appear
to actually encircle the sun.
BARNICLE
When the surface of the sea freezes - such as around
the north and south poles - it does so in a way that forces
pockets of especially cold and salty seawater to
gather on the underside of the ice.
VOLCANIC LIGHTNING
And yes, it' s exactly what it sounds like - a lightning
storm that takes place in the middle of a volcanic
eruption.
PENITENTES
If the conditions are right, the sun' s rays are so hot that
they can actually sublimate fields of snow - meaning
that the frozen water vaporizes without ever becoming
a liquid.
SUPERCELL
A supercell is basically a stronger, more tornado-
enabled version of a regular storm cell. This is because
superballs have the tendency to spin around it lot, but
also because superballs can actually create tornadoes.
FIRE RAINBOW
They only occur when the sun is at least 58 degrees
above the horizon, when there are cirrus clouds
in the sky that are filled with ice crystals.
BASALT COLUMNS
The unique formations are a result of lava Rows
cracking as they cool, in a perpendicular direction to
the original flow.
FROST FLOWER
They' re buildups of ice particles around the base of
certain plants and types of wood.
