Hey Everyone!

If you liked the recent post Strange Wonders of the world, Then here are some more –

Red Tides

Red Tides are also known as algal blooms sudden influxes of massive amounts of colored single-cell algae that can convert entire areas of an ocean or beach into a blood red color.

While some of these can be relatively harmless, others can be harbingers of deadly toxins that cause the deaths of fishes , birds and marine mammals.

In some cases , even humans have been harmed by red tides though no human exposure are know to have been fatal.

While they can be fatal , the constituent phytoplankton in rides tides are not harmful in small numbers.

Fire Rainbows

A circumhorizontal fir rainbows arc occurs at a rare confluence of right time and right place for the sun and certain clouds.

Crystals within the clouds refract light into the various visible waves of the spectrum but only if they are arrayed correctly relative to ground below.

Due to the rarity with which all of these events happen in conjunction with one another , there are relatively few remarkable photos of this phenomena.

Penitents

Named after peak-hooded new mexican monks (lower right above),Penitentes are dazzling naturally-forming ice blades that stick up at sharp angles toward the sun.

Rarely found except at high altitudes , they can grow up taller than a human and form in vast fields.

As ice melts in particular patterns , ‘valleys’ formed by initial melt leave leave ‘mountains’ in their wake.

Strangely , these formations ultimately slow the melting process as the peaks cast shadows on the deeper surfaces below and allow for winds to blow over the peaks , cooling them.

Sundogs

Like light pillars,sundogs are the product of light passing through crystals

The particular shape and orientation of the crystals
can have drastic visual impact for the viewer,producing a longer tail and changing the range of colors one sees.

The relative height of the sun in the sky shifts the distance the sundogs appear to be on either side of the sun

Varying climatic conditions on other planets in our solar system produce halos with up to four sundogs from those planets’ perspectives.

Sundogs have been speculated about and discussed since ancient times and written records describing the various attributes of our sun date back the Egyptians and Greeks.

Fire Whirls

Fire Whirls (Also know as fire devils or tornadoes)appear the right combination of climatic condition is present.

Fire Whirls can be spawned by other natural events suck as earthquakes and thunderstorms,and can be incredibly dangerous,in some cases spinning well out of the zone of a fire itself to cause devastation and death in a radius not even reached by heat or flame.

Fire whirl have been known to be nearly a mile high,have winds of over 100 miles per hour and to last for 20 or more minutes.

Orange Moon

This last phenomena is something most people have seen before beautiful orange hanging low in the sky.

But what causes this phenomena and , for that , matter , does the moon have a  color at all ?

When the moon appears lower on the horizon , rays of light bouncing off it have to pass through a great deal more of our atmosphere which slowly strips away everything but yellows , oranges and reds.

The bottommost image above is true to the hues of the moon but has enhanced colors to more clearly show the differences in shade that illustrate the mixed topography and mineralogy that tell the story of the moon’s surface.

Looking at the colors in combination with the craters one can start to trace the history of impacts and  consequent material movements across the face of our mysterious moon.

Hello Everyone!

Here is a Email That I received from one of my friends!

Strange Wonders of the World!

Sailing Stones

The Mysterious moving tones of the packed mud desert of death valley have been a center of scientific controversy for decades.

Rocks weighing up to hundreds of pounds have been know to move up to hundreds of yards at a time.

Some scientists have proposed that a combination of strong winds and surface ice account for these movements.

However , This theory does not explain evidence of different  rocks starting side by side and moving at different rates and in desperate directions.

Moreover , the physics calculations do not fully support this theory as wind speeds of hundreds of miles per hour would be needed to move some of the stones.

Columnar Basalt

When a thick lava flows cool , it contracts vertically but cracks perpendicular to its directional flow with remarkable geometric regularity -In most cases forming of a regular grid of remarkable hexagonal extrusions that almost appear to be made by man.

One of the most famous such examples is the Giant’s Causeway on the coast of Ireland (Shown Above)Though the largest and most widely recognized would be Devil’s Tower in Wyoming.

Basalts also form in different but equally fascinating ways when eruption are exposed to air or water.

Blue Holes

Blue Holes are giant and sudden drops in water elevation that get their name from the dark and foreboding blue tone they exhibit. when viewed from above in relationship to surrounding waters.

They can be hundreds of feet deep and while divers are able to explore some of them they are largely devoid of oxygen that would support sea life due to poor water circulation – leaving them eerily empty.

Some blue holes , however , contain ancient fossil remains that have been discovered , preserved in their depths.

Ice Circles

While many see these apparently perfect ice circles as worthy as conpiracy theorizing, scientists generally accept that they are formed by eddies in the water that spin a sizable piece of ice in a circular motion.

As a result of this rotation , other pieces of ice and flotsam wear relatively evenly at the edges of the ice until it slowly forms into essentially ideal circle.

Ice Circles have been seen with diameters of over 500 feet and can also at times be found in clusters and groups at different sizes as shown above.

Mammatus Clouds

True to their ominous apperance , mammatus clouds are harbingers of a coming storm or other extreme weather system.

Typically composed primarily of ice , they can extend for hundreds of miles in each direction and individual formations can remain visibly static for ten to fifteen minutes at a time.

While they may appear  foreboding they are merely the messengers – appearing around , before or even after severe weather.

Sink-holes

Sinkholes aare on of the world’s scariest natural phenomena.

Over time , water erodes the soil under the planet’s surface until in some cases , quite suddenly ,the land above gives way and collapses into the earth.

Many sinkholes occur naturally while others are the result of human intervention.

Displacing groundwater can open cavities while broken pipes can erode otherwise stable subterranean sediments.

Urban sinkholes ,up to hundreds of feet deep have formed and consumed parts of city blocks , sidewalks and even entire buildings.

Lenticular Clouds

Ever Wonder the truth about UFOs?

Avoided by traditional pilots but loved by sailplane aviators , Lenticular clouds are masses of clouds with strong internal uplift that can drive a motor less flyer to high elevations.

Their shape is quite often mistake for a mysterious flying object or the artificial cover for one.

Generally , lenticular clouds are formed as wind speeds up while moving around a large land object such as a mountain.

Light Pillars

Light Pillars appear as eerily upright luminous columns in the sky ,beacons cast into the air above without an apparent source..

These are visible when light reflects just right off of ice crystals either the sun or from artificial ground sources such as street or park lights.

Despite their appearance as near-solid columns of light,the effect is entirely created by our own relative viewpoint.

Hello Everybody!

Let me show you something different today ,

This may be a little old graphic game , but is really hard and interesting.

The World’s Hardest Game includes 30 levels in the First version.It also has the part II.The Game’s motive basically is to make the Red Square reach the last green path.In some levels the collection of coins is also required.The obstacles are referred blue dots in this game which generally are placed at different points to make the game more difficult. As the level increases , the game difficulty level increases.Instead of completing the game by minimum time to make high score , the minimum number of deaths are required.When we touch blue dots we die and the no. of deaths increase.It is a strategy game.

It might look complicated but just play the game and you’ll understand it very well.

Holla!

I just saw , you guys really interest in these kinda things.

Holla!

I was watching a movie “The bucket list” when i heard about Kopi Luwak.

What is Kopi Luwak ?
It is the most expensive coffee in the world.

Whys it most expensive?

1.Very less amount of it exists in the World.

2.Its process is very unique.

3.Its unique taste , strange brew.

What is exactly the process?

Some seeds in Indonesia are eaten by Common palm civet, a weasel-like animal, Which basically eat outer part of the seed and excrete the inner part.

That inner part is the world’s most expensive coffee bean.

You would be thinking that the inner part of seed can be extracted technically .

Theres a  reason for that too, while the Common palm civet excretes it , the properties change , which make it the most expensive.

Cost of the beans could be up to $600 a pound.

And 50$ a cup of coffee.

This all means that the World’s Most Expensive Coffee , Kopi Luwak , is actually a form of excreted waste.(Crap/Sh*t)

Hope you find it interesting.
