In awe of God’s creation – Bizarre and Beautiful Natural Phenomena – Fenomene naturale si bizare, dar frumoase

Also known as the algal bloom, the Red Tide is the rapid accumulation of estuarine, marine, or fresh water algae in a water column, which tints the water red. When the algae, or phytoplankton, accumulate in such a manner, they form dense clouds near the water’s surface. Since the phytoplankton is usually brown, red and green, the water, naturally, reflects this colour on the surface.

Cunoscut de asemenea ca boboc de alge, Fluxul Roşu este acumularea rapida de  estuarine lagunar, marine, sau alge de apa proaspata intr-o coloana de apă, care schimba culoarea apei in roşu. Când algele, sau phytoplankton, se acumulaza  intr-un astfel de mod, ele formeaza nori densi aproape de suprafaţa apei. Deoarece phytoplankton este de obicei maro, roşu şi verde, apa, in mod natural, reflectă această culoare pe suprafaţă.
The Fire Rainbow is the colloquial term for the atmospheric phenomenon, circumhorizontal arc. The rainbow occurs when the sun is more than 58 degrees above the horizon, and the light emitted passes through a cirrus clouds.
Curcubeul de foc este termenul pentru un fenomen atmosferic, arcul circumhorizontal. Curcubeul apare atunci cand nivelul de înaltare al soarelui este mai mare de 58 º, si lumina emisă trece prin nori cirrus.

The Catatumbo Lighting occurs on the mouth of the Catatumbo River at Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela. It is an atmospheric delight, which creates incessant, powerful flashes of lightning. The phenomenon occurs because of a mass of storm clouds that form a voltage arc more than three miles high. The incessant storm clouds are the result of strong winds blowing across the lake and the surrounding plains, colliding with the high mountain ridges of the surrounding Andes, Perija Mountains and Meridas Cordillera. The lightning is visible 140 to 160 nights a year, for ten hours per day, and up to 280 times every hour. This equates to over a million electrical discharges per year.

Fulgerele Catatumbo apar la gura raului Catatumbo pe Lacul Maracaibo, in Venezuela. Este o delectare atmosferica, care produce lumini puternice de peste 4 kilometri inaltime. Fulgerele sunt vizibile aprox 140 – 160 de zile pe an, pana la 10 ore pe zi si de 280 de ori pe ora din cauza furtunelor cauzate de vanturi puternice care se ciocnesc cu varfurile muntilor Andes, Perija si Meridas Cordilerra.


The Naga fireballs are a natural, inexplicable phenomenon witnessed along the Mekong River, in Thailand and Laos. They refer to the glowing, reddish balls, which vary in size and rise from the water into the air, before disappearing. The bizarre event takes place every October during the full moon. It is estimated between tens and thousands of fireballs shoot from the river, some reaching a hundred meters in height. Though many scientists have attempted to explain the phenomenon (commonly as a spontaneous ignition of gases from the river), there is no substantial evidence to back their theories

Fulgere globulare. Acestea, denumite si „mingi de foc”, care variaza de la dimensiunea unei mingi de golf la cea a uneia de fotbal, pot fi observate de obicei in timpul furtunilor. Nu emana vreun miros si nu degaja caldura. In general, dispar simplu atunci cand intalnesc ceva electric, insa uneori explodeaza violent, declansand flacari. Fulgerele globulare au preocupat de secole oamenii de stiinta, insa nici pana in prezent nu a fost gasita o explicatie clara.
