Here are amazing things you did not know about the Earth

By | June 8, 2019

Men tend to believe that the Earth is their property, that it is theirs.

We see trees, mountains, and lakes, but we do not really appreciate them because they are part of our daily lives. Nothing impresses us anymore. When you go to see what the Earth can produce, and how strange it may be, you will quickly change your mind. Your perception of this crazy world in which we live will change. Ready?Lightning

coming out of a volcano:

When a volcano erupts, it releases a powerful amount of energy into the air. This spectacular image is taken from a video of a German filmmaker, Marc Szeglat, who observed this phenomenon in Japan, on Kyushu Island. The crater of the volcano named Sakurajima erupted in March 2015. This “volcanic storm” can cause violent and sudden reactions and would occur because of the friction of particles that accumulate static charges both positive and negative. When the voltage becomes too high, the static electricity is released in the form of lightning. Awesome!

Underwater rivers:

In Mexico, in the cenotes, are water anomalies that occur only when heavy materials sink to the bottom of the water, thus creating their own flow? We then have an impression of a river in the sea.

Cloud tubes

Called the “morning glory clouds”, these cloud tubes are mostly born in the York Peninsula in Australia, due to the particular atmospheric pressure conditions where the sea breezes of the gulf and the ocean converge on the land. If you have the chance to see some, enjoy them!

Stones that move:

These 300-kg stones move within Death Valley, California, without the help of humans or machines. It has recently been discovered that during the winter, these large rocks move when layers of water and ice begin to melt beneath them. The stones then go where there is sand.

A rainbow on a tree:

This multicolored tree is called Rainbow Eucalyptus and has a variety of colors similar to a paint palette. This color is natural and can be explained because of its bark peeling in different places. Under each layer, a different color is there. This tree is found on various islands such as New Britain, Seram, Sulawesi or Mindanao, which are part of the archipelagos of the Philippines, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea.
From the blue lava:
Photographed by Olivier Grunewald, it seems that the volcano Kawah Ijen, on the island of Java, spits blue lava. This is not the case. These are flames, created by the burning of sulfur. But the photo is bluffing!

Beautiful reflections:

What happens when the minerals of millions of years, are combined with sand and red stones? A village is similar to a relief drawing! This takes place in China, in Danxia. The mountains have stones dating back 24 million years. The minerals have been pressed, and different tectonic plates are of different colors. This gives a beautiful village in relief!

Lake Natron, Tanzania:

This lake of Africa has the particularity of having a rate of acidity so high that it can burn the skin and the eyes of animals not used. Due mainly to soda ash and other minerals dumped by the surrounding hills. Suddenly, animals that have the misfortune to die on this hyper acid lake, sink … and find themselves as mummified.
