    Cool Natural Phenomena

    10 Ridiculously Cool Natural Phenomena


    Brinicles

    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. This mixture of brine is denser than the seawater below it, and as a result it tends to slowly sink to the bottom. Now, because it’s so cold, the fresher water below the brine actually freezes around it as it falls, which results in a giant icicle under the surface.

    Frost flower

    To put it simply, frost flowers are flowers made of frost. More accurately, frost flowers are nothing like that, so let’s put it technically instead: they’re buildups of ice particles around the base of certain plants and types of wood.

    Mammatus cloud

    Mammatus clouds are pouch-like protrusions hanging from the undersides of clouds, usually thunderstorm anvil clouds but other types of clouds as well. Composed primarily of ice, these cloud pouches can extend hundreds of miles in any direction, remaining visible in your sky for perhaps 10 or 15 minutes at a time.

    Columnar Basalt

    The unique formations are a result of lava flows cracking as they cool, in a perpendicular direction to the original flow.

    Sailing stones

    These rocks move when large ice sheets a few millimeters thick floating in an ephemeral winter pond start to break up during sunny days. These thin floating ice panels, frozen during cold winter nights, are driven by light winds and shove rocks at up to five meters per minute.

    Penitentes

    These intimidating snow structures are formed in high-altitude areas with low humidity, such as the glaciers of the Andes mountains.

    Fallstreak hole

    A Fallstreak hole is a large circular or elliptical gap that can appear in cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds. Such holes are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation.

    Snow roller

    A snow roller is a rare meteorological phenomenon in which large rolls of snow are formed naturally. The snow is blown by the wind collecting material along the way, almost the same way in which large snowballs are formed.
