10 Most Bizarre Natural Phenomena

10. Waterspouts
Waterspouts are essentially spinning columns of mist and air that form over open water. There are two different types of waterspouts, called “fair weather waterspouts” and “tornadic waterspouts.” According to the National Ocean Service (NOS), these result from tornadoes that form over water, or those which move from land to water.

9. The “Godzilla Cloud”
This past June, trade winds blew a gigantic cloud of dust from the biggest Sahara dust storm in over 50 years across the Atlantic Ocean, first hitting the Caribbean, and then sweeping into mainland North and Central America, particularly the southeastern United States, before taking a northwestern turn.

8. Cicadas
As if the COVID-19 crisis and the Godzilla Cloud weren’t enough to deal with in one year, 2020 also came with the emergence of millions of 17-year cicadas from underground in several states during the month of June, including West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina.

7. “Fireball” Cloud
In early 2016, residents on the Porgugese island of Madeira noticed a golden-hued cloud descending from the sky and hovering over them. Photographer and weather blogger Rogerio Pacheco, who captured images of the strange cloud and posted them on his website, described the phenomenon as a “fireball.”

6. Firenado
A “firenado,” also commonly called a “fire whirl” or “fire devil,” is what it sounds like: a whirlwind composed of flame and ash. In August 2018, a firenado tore through parts of Derbyshire, England, reaching a height of more than 50 feet (15 meters) and ripping through a plastics factory.

5. Shelf Clouds
When a giant shelf cloud rolled in over Lake Superior in mid-2018, it bore an eerie resemblance to a tsunami. Footage captured from Au Train, Michigan shows the formation barreling toward land at a terrifying speed — it’s a sight sure to send most people running.

4. Orange Snow
The Russian city of Sochi was perhaps best-known for hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics until, just four years later, its snow turned orange, and Sochi once again made international headlines, albeit unexpectedly this time.

3. Light Pillars
Sun pillars, also called light pillars, are vertical light shafts extending from above and/or below the surface of a bright light source. Have you ever looked out at the sky — perhaps a city skyline at night, or the setting sun — and noticed that the lights seem to “spread” up or down? That’s exactly what this phenomenon is.

2. Colder Than Mars
In early 2018, in Russia’s extreme northern region of Yakutia, Siberia, the town of Oymyakon hit a shockingly low temperature of 88 degrees Fahrenheit below zero (-66.7 Celsius) — cold enough to freeze someone’s eyelashes, and colder than the planet Mars, which sits at around minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit (-62.2 Celsius), according to Space.com.

1. Roll Clouds
Light pillars aren’t the only bizarre weather phenomenon that have been mistaken for UFO’s. Roll clouds also claim those bragging rights, although they’re simply a rare form of arcus cloud. These strange-looking formations are low-lying, horizontal, and tube-shaped, forming what WMC 5 Action News referred to in 2018 as “a rolling solitary wave.”

  21. I agree, Kristi. I rarely read blogs that don’t have comments. When I have time to read, I want to do so in a community where I can interact with the writer and other readers.
    This has been an evergreen question to me. Any system I tried hasn’t been perfect, most are frustrating. I like owning my comments but WordPress hasn’t managed to improve their comment system. I can’t figure it out! Commenting is what makes blogging so awesome: Why does WordPress keep tweaking the dashboard but they’ve never got around to improving the commenting functionality!?

  22. Interesting comments in here. As a commenter and reader, I quite like Disqus. It’s a single profile that I’ve been using across the major social and marketing blogs that I visit and it seems to be used by them, so I’m quite happy using it, and they send me decent notifications and updates about conversations happening in my network and people replying to stuff. They could improve their content discovery engine, but that’s not really their core business so I understand why they’re not spending too much time in that space.
    While running Disqus comments on a blog that I managed, I didn’t find too much trouble running it either. It gave me quick moderation control, filtered out a lot of the spam automatically and accidentally at times flagged good comments as spam – but it seemed to work fine.

  23. Maybe some people like posting comments with Facebook, but I feel like there’s a worry about the activity being posted to your feed. With Disqus, they don’t have to worry about that and moderation is really good for the blogger.
    I see your point, although you aren’t completely anonymous with Disqus either. Maybe Facebook is better for blogs where you are not likely to see much controversial comments.

  24. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  25. I think what you said was very logical. However, think on this,
    what if you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don’t
    wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something that
    grabbed a person’s attention? I mean 10 Most Bizarre Natural Phenomena –
    Christianhome11 is kinda vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they create post headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more
