Pilot captures rare St. Elmo's fire weather phenomenon mid-flight

An Airbus 320 flying over Argentina experiences what is known as a St. Elmo's Fire - a weather phenomenon in which luminous plasma is created by a coronal discharge from a sharp or pointed object in a strong electric field in the atmosphere (such as those generated by thunderstorms). What a sight!

Heavy Winds Push Trees Back And Forth, Create Insane Illusion!30s

Heavy Winds Push Trees Back And Forth, Create Insane Illusion!

This video is one that will really make you do a double take! Viewers without a doubt end up watching this video a couple times in a row to see this interesting scene one more time because it is one that is just so rare, and quite frankly, strange! Check out this crazy footage of trees being pushed up from their roots by the wind. It looks like the earth is breathing! When the video begins, viewers see a landscape of a wooded area. The only noise that can be heard is that which the wind is making as it furiously blows through the trees in the woods. Notice that many of these trees that can be seen in this camera view are already down on the ground. Some may think at first that perhaps these trees were intentionally cut down, possibly with human influence of some kind. However, if you look a little closer, you can see that this is certainly not the case. That is because of the left side of each of the trees. That is where the roots can be seen. The fact that the trees still have all of their roots attached in this way tells us that humans did not force the trees into being this way. Not only are the roots still on the trees, we can see that the trees have been apparently ripped up from the ground right from where they stood towering over the ground. These majestic trees were just no match for the great winds they encountered. Even though wind is not something that can be visually seen, the results of the wind is visible. Scenes like this one appear all over the world, and they are shocking each and every time. As the wind blows through the woods, it unapologetically rips the stoic evergreens from their home. To make this even more interesting, the tree in the center of the camera view is on its way to being ripped from the ground, but it is just not quite there yet. Each time a strong gust comes through, the tree leans to the right. When it does this, the roots lift up from the ground. This is when viewers say that it looks as if the earth is breathing. This is a very interesting illusion , and this particular part of this sight is what is rare. This is also the part that makes people replay the video a couple times because it is so odd looking. Rumble is constantly receiving new content every day.

Drone Footage Captures Erupting Sabancaya Volcano2m48s

Drone Footage Captures Erupting Sabancaya Volcano

The Geophysics Institute of Peru released drone footage on December 3 that it said showed the Sabancaya volcano erupting the previous week. The drone was equipped with sensors that allowed it to obtain images of the crater and measurements of the gases and particles the volcano was expelling, the institute said. A renewed period of activity at the Sabancaya volcano began in early November 2016 and has continued intermittently, according to the Smithsonian Institution Global Volcanism Program.

Belize's Great Blue Hole is mysterious and thrilling3m16s

Belize's Great Blue Hole is mysterious and thrilling

The Great Blue Hole in Belize was declared by Jacques Cousteau to be one of the top five dive sites in the world. Discovery Channel referred to it as one of the ten most amazing places on earth. The thrill of the deep and the mystery of what lies so far below the waves draws thousands of adventure seekers each year. It is a world that was created 153,000 years ago by glaciers when the sea level was much lower than it is today. Formed due to limestone buildup, its development actually took place in four stages, many years apart. The stalactites are magnificent and a ring of caves and tunnels lines the sinkhole at a depth of 130 feet. This creates a very unique environment for divers to explore. Occasionally, sharks patrol the depths, along with some fish species, but life is sparse this far from the sunlight. Without coral, sponges and vegetation, there is little to support an abundance of life. Venturing this far below the surface is not without risks. Nitrogen narcosis, a side effect of the buildup of nitrogen gas in a scuba diver’s blood, occurs much more frequently and rapidly at greater depths and it can lead to extreme disorientation. Any lapse in judgment in this world will have serious and immediate consequences. A diver will also consume air at a much faster rate due to the higher pressure. Because two safety stops are needed on the ascent to expel nitrogen and avoid the bends, air consumption must be carefully planned. Divers know that they can only stay 8 minutes in this beautiful place. Any miscalculation will cost them precious air and place them at serious risk. Yet, with proper planning and training, these dives can be done safely, as long as divers do not ignore any of the safety rules. Only divers with advanced training are allowed to enter the Great Blue Hole. They rely on each other in the case of equipment malfunction and they have practiced the drills many times. Extra air tanks are suspended below the boat in case the divers do not have enough air left for their final safety stop. Working together, they minimize the risks. An adventure into the Great Blue Hole is not for the faint of heart, but the allure of the deep is powerful and the intrigue and thrill easily outweigh the perils. The Great Blue Hole is like a beckon for scuba divers that they are powerless to ignore. This is a world that only the privileged few can experience.

Magical color explosion: Alaskan Aurora Corona1m49s

Magical color explosion: Alaskan Aurora Corona

The aurora borealis, or northern lights, dazzled on the evening of August 25, 2018 in Alaska. Even experienced night sky watchers were anxiously awaiting darkness so that they could witness this amazing display. The beautiful night sky in remote Alaska, unimpeded by any light pollution, makes this display a wonderful treat. You will see many stars, as small satellite trails come into view and appear to zip across the screen. The aurora looks as if it’s raining down on the tall Alaskan Spruce trees which are seen in most parts of bush Alaska. Northern Alaska is fortunate in that the aurora is seen many days out of the week during the winter months, when it is dark. But what is the aurora? The Aurora Borealis (and Aurora Australis in the southern polar regions) is a natural light display in the earth’s night sky. Auroras occur when magnetically charged particles from the sun, carried by solar winds, interact (ionize) with the earth’s atmosphere. The reason they are seen in the northernmost parts of the world is because they are drawn to the magnetic north and south poles. That is why they are not often seen outside northern regions like Alaska, Canada, Norway, and Iceland. But there have been events strong enough where aurora were seen, even in some of the most southern parts of the United States. These events are extremely rare, however. Because these energized particles are interacting with our atmosphere, they sometimes appear to “dance,” as they do in this video time lapse. It’s a myth that aurora can only be seen in winter. These particles are interacting with our atmosphere at all times during the year, but because northern areas experience little to no daylight in the summer months (the midnight sun), the aurora is not able to viewed. It can be viewed from about August through winter into April. Aurora colors and formations can vary, and what you see in most of this video is what’s called a corona. A corona is an aurora that appears to “burst” from a central point. In this video, you will see aurora corona pulsating as it dances in the night sky above Delta Junction, Alaska, near Fairbanks.

Beautiful Sunset Casts Red And Pink Colors51s

Beautiful Sunset Casts Red And Pink Colors

Check out this spectacular footage of a sunset that dazzles with both red and then pink coloring. How cool is that? The purple evening glow will certainly remain in the memory of almost any person who had the chance to observe it. After all, this is what has been the kernel or many an artist light-motif and what photographers strive to capture better in their collections. And why is the sun red at sunset but never again during the day? This is what people of all ages and od all periods have asked. One of the distinguishing features of a person is curiosity . Probably everyone, as a child, looked up at the sky and wondered: "Why is the sky blue?". As it turns out, the answers to such seemingly simple questions require some knowledge base in the field of physics, and therefore not every parent can correctly explain to the child the cause of this phenomenon. Consider this issue from a scientific point of view. It is scientifically proven that the sun does not have a certain color. And its rays are composed of many tones. The length of each electromagnetic wave corresponds to a certain color. The eyes of a human, according to this length, distinguish between tones and semitones. The thickness, as well as the density of atmospheric air, directly affect the overall color of the rays. But not everything is so simple. The range of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation covers almost the entire spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, into which the radiation visible to man also enters. The image below shows the dependence of the solar radiation intensity on the wavelength of this radiation. Analyzing this image, one can note the fact that visible radiation is also represented by an uneven intensity for radiation of different wavelengths. So a relatively small contribution to visible radiation gives a violet color, and the largest is blue and green. When the Sun hides over the horizon, we can observe the long-wave radiation of red-orange color. In this case, the light from the Sun must pass a much greater distance in the Earth's atmosphere before it reaches the eye of the observer. In a place where the radiation of the Sun begins to interact with the atmosphere, the most pronounced are blue and blue. However, with distance, the short-wave radiation loses its intensity, as it diffuses considerably along the way. While longwave radiation does an excellent job of overcoming such large distances. That's why the sun is red at sunset. As mentioned before, although long-wave radiation is slightly scattered in the air, nevertheless scattering takes place. Therefore, being on the horizon, the Sun emits light, from which only the emission of red-orange shades reaches the observer, which diffuses somewhat in the atmosphere, forming the previously mentioned "wandering" light. The latter and colors the sky in mottled shades of red and orange. If you are not much of a science fuff but you do have the romantic inclination and want to observe nature and its movements, do look at the following video. It shows a beautiful time-lapse footage of Northern Minnesota . Clouds seem to take on a life of their own in this time-lapse landscape drama from Minnesota. Where still life painters capture a single frame of the essence of a scene, in this dynamic interlude we see that the only thing that doesn’t change is change itself. The earth breathes, moves, is alive. The colors and shades are very subtle. Maybe some of us are drawn to different parts of the composition. I like the clouds, with their creamy textures and variation from white to dark gray. You may be drawn to the water, with its moving surface that reflects the sky. We see that the lake even seems to move more quickly than the sky reflected upon its surface. Sunlight spray paints the green trees on the horizon, which was green, then wan black, according to the whims of the moving clouds.

Majestic Set Of Clouds Looks Like A Giant Approaching Wave46s

Majestic Set Of Clouds Looks Like A Giant Approaching Wave

The sky is one of those things that never fails to render us speechless. There is something so beautiful in the fleeting masterpieces painted on the sky’s blue canvas, we are left awe-struck. The oeuvres d’art come in different colors, from the most faint whites to the boldest reds, and it’s the most beautiful sight we’ve ever seen. In this curious video we see mother nature in its finest form, as the sky is packed with fluffy clouds that resemble a big wave approaching the coast, making for a magnificent sight! A seiche is a standing wave in an enclosed or partially enclosed body of water, which is what we see in this amazing footage. Reportedly, it was a sweltering 85 degrees and muggy and the tide pulled out about 30 feet. If you look closely in the distance it appears as a huge wave is heading towards the coast. Fortunately, these people decided to watch the phenomenon from the coast, and decided to capture a video of this amazing sight and share it on the Internet, and we are so grateful for that! The sight is simply magical! Luckily, they didn't get any rain, but the wind was so strong when it hit the shore that they could hardly breath, filmmaker explains. This cloud masterpiece lasted only about 10 minutes, but the memories of it will last a lifetime! The credit for this beautiful sight goes to the clouds and the wind. After all, the sky is nothing but empty space in which the water condensation molds in whichever form it desires and creates different clouds. Their shape can vary and can mean many different things, they might hold large quantities of water, they might be high or low in the atmosphere and they might even be just the beginning of the harshest storms we’ve ever seen. Either way, clouds are quite the model. In addition, the wind can act an important role as well. It can stretch the water vapor into thin stripes across the sky, or it can make candy floss appear on the horizon. It can make them appear out of nowhere and make them vanish into thin air in the blink of an eye. Mother nature is the most talented painter in the world, she always knows how to grab our attention and surprise us in so many different ways! Clouds , those white puffy accumulations of moisture up in our gorgeous skies are simply amazing. We look up to Heavens every time we are outside. Do you ever look for shapes of animals, objects, faces, or just take in all the beauty those big puffy accumulations of moisture form? Well the big puffy clouds are called cumulus clouds. Cumulus clouds have flat bases and are often described as "puffy", "cotton-like" or "fluffy" in appearance just like mentioned above. Normally, cumulus clouds produce little or no precipitation, but they can grow into the precipitation-bearing congestus or cumulonimbus clouds. During a stormy weather, clouds are building, often creating some fun little characters, that we so much want to spot! If you like fluffy clouds, take a look of another phenomenon where sun rays give clouds a colored appearance , making for a magnificent view. The thick beams of light can turn the black sky a bright blue, the clouds gold, and sometimes even red. Together with the dust particles in the air, it might even make the sky appear in a perfect pink haze. There is no doubt that the sky knows how to paint some serious art, leaving onlookers in awe with its beauty. It can look so mysterious and ethereal. Credit: Pinewood lodge

Raging River Of Lava Captured On Camera In Hawaii45s

Raging River Of Lava Captured On Camera In Hawaii

We all know that we are fighting a war against time to save our planet. Ecologists are warning us every day that our planet is dying, and it is all our fault. We hear stories about the rise of the ocean levels due to climate change, we read about PM10 and PM2.5 particles in the atmosphere, about floating islands of trash in the middle of our oceans, about holes in the ozone layers, about deforestation, about the rise of the average temperatures in the atmosphere. Nature is absolutely unpredictable . You can never be too sure what a single tiny movement might do to cause a shift in the whole ecosystem. You can’t predict an earthquake similar as to how you can not predict the weather. You can guess that it’s going to rain based on the ominous dark clouds, but you may never know if a wind sweeps in and blows them all away. There are also a lot of mysterious occurrences in nature. It doesn’t mean that they are mythical or otherworldly, it just means that we haven’t got the technology available yet to understand and explain them. We must never forget that our planet is and has been active ever since it was created. The first shape our planet took was as a big piece of molten hot rock floating into space. The freezing temperatures in the vast space cooled it down slightly, allowing the surface to be formed, but deep inside, there is still an enormous amount of trapped heat and energy sizzling beneath the surface. The Earth’s core is an endless amount of energy and it is responsible for keeping our surface warm enough for us to live on it. The Earth’s insides aren’t all solid. There is a viscous matter called magma that literally flows beneath the surface and is perpetually looking for a way out. Once it reaches the Earth’s atmosphere it becomes the fiery orange lava we see erupting from volcanoes. It bubbles up to the surface and hardens gradually to form volcanic rocks. These sorts of rocks are extremely rich in minerals and are ideal when growing all sorts of crops on them. However, from time to time, the amount of lava that surfaces is too much, so much so that it creates an eerie river of fire burning through everything that crosses its path. Check out this insane fast-flowing river of lava on the Big Island of Hawaii. How crazy is that? Although volcano eruptions aren’t that big of a deal in Hawaii because many of the volcanoes there are actually active, the May 2018 eruption of the Kilauea volcano wreaked havoc among the population. It caused a great deal of damage and financial loss. Kilauea had been in an eruption cycle since 1983 which has lasted for the past 35 years so scientists aren’t sure yet if these past few eruptions are a part of the old cycle or a brand new one.

Rocks Bouncing On Frozen Pond Make Most Peculiar Sounds1m05s

Rocks Bouncing On Frozen Pond Make Most Peculiar Sounds

Nature is something that is truly amazing. If you just look around you, you can find interesting things everywhere you look. Nature is absolutely unpredictable. You can never be too sure what a single tiny movement might do to cause a shift in the whole ecosystem. You can’t predict an earthquake similar as to how you can not predict the weather. You can guess that it’s going to rain based on the ominous dark clouds, but you may never know if a wind sweeps in and blows them all away. There are also a lot of mysterious occurrences in nature. It doesn’t mean that they are mythical or otherworldly, it just means that we haven’t got the technology available yet to understand and explain them. One such phenomenon is the sound stone skipping creates when it hits the icy pond. Now, before you think that we’re making this up, check out this footage. There is almost never a dull moment when it comes to nature. The person in this clip here realized this and had a lot of fun with nature in the winter time! The person stands in front of a recently frozen pond with rocks all around them. They pick up one of the rocks and decide to throw in onto the frozen pond only for the unexpected to happen. The rock bounces on the pond’s surface and creates a sound that appears to be out of this world. The sound is almost like something out of a sci-fi movie! You really have to see it to believe it, or in this case, hear it to believe it! It all has to do with how sound travels through a medium. Basically, although you might not see it, the stone skipping is breaking the icy surface of the pond, and the cracks are the reason why it sounds the way it sounds. They have often been described as the sound a laser makes or even a bird caller. Another comparison is made with the famous slinkie device. What do you think? Doesn’t this remind you of the sound a lightsaber makes during a lightsaber fight in the iconic Star Wars franchise? Whichever way it may be, there is no denying it. Nature is marvelous and nature is the greatest artist creating the most interesting sounds ever. There are a lot of things we can’t explain to ourselves. Nature really does work in mysterious ways, combining atoms into molecules to create the most perfect specimen it wants to create. Nature truly is an artist. It creates the most intricate designs and combines the most uncommon colors making us admire it each and every time. It has mastered its craft throughout the millennia, getting better and better each time. It seems that each new attempt is a tiny bit closer to perfection. What did you think about this video?

Massive Rockfall Peels Off Mountain Face Leaving People In Awe

Ralf Dujmovits, Salomé von Rotz and Nancy Hansen were climbing the Cassin Route on Piz Badile in Switzerland's Bergell Range when they captured this incredible moment. The unstable north wall of neighboring peak Piz Cengalo was spitting large blocks of rock all morning. In early afternoon, the mountain let go of a huge amount of granite, as seen in this video. But they knew it still wasn't the big event the Swiss geologists and engineers were expecting - that happened two days later. An estimated four million cubic meters of rock came down, causing several deaths, chaos and evacuations of huts and villages. Blocks of rock as big as an apartment building suddenly peel off the mountain face. As the cascade of rock tears down the mountain , it throws a serpentine cloud of dust into the air. And it falls with a loud thud, the sound can be compared to serac falls and avalanches. This rockfall resonates so much throughout the mountain that we can only assume how destructive it has been. Rockfalls are fascinating, powerful, complicated, and dangerous, so learning something about them can be useful. There are many causes that make up a smaller portion of rockfalls, including earthquakes, snowmelt, freeze-thaw cycles, and lightning. Still, for 26 percent of falls documented, the geologists can’t identify a cause (although the current thinking is that heat may be at work for some of these). It might be possible to predict rockfalls someday, but not for a long time. In the meantime, it is believed that a promising route is to look at thermal maps of rock faces. Warm air can surround both sides of a detached flake and heat it up faster than the rest of the cliff. These hot areas on the cliff could be the most likely to rip off next.

Massive Avalanche Leaves Tourists Dumbfounded

Torres del Paine National Park, in Chile’s Patagonia region, is known for its soaring mountains. Dramatic footage has emerged from Chile of two tourists having a very close call with a massive avalanche in the mountains. The video, captured by one of the tourists, shows the avalanche that charges through the valley and races down the mountainside. The avalanche starts suddenly and quickly unveils right in front of these people! It comes faster than God on a skateboard. One minute the slopes are pristine and the next they're moving. In seconds the powder is all over the mountain kissing it coldly. In another moment the weight of the snow is so heavy and the forward momentum is no longer under control. The light is gone. A minute ago there was a beautiful sunshine which can be now seen on the other side of the mountain. There is a sound mightier than thunder, a cracking, a warning of the violence to come. The accompanying noise with which the avalanche trickles down is deafening. In moments, it is tumbling in white, cold, then darkness and still more noise. Then everything stopped, not slowly, but suddenly. It is like being set in concrete. This is not the soft snow of making angels in the yard, this is more like the snow is being buried in earth. There are various kinds of avalanches, including rock avalanches, ice avalanches, and debris avalanches and snow avalanches constitute a relatively common phenomenon in many mountainous areas. The size of a snow avalanche can range from a small shifting of loose snow (called sluffing) to the displacement of enormous slabs of snow.

Spectators Observe As River Mixes With Sea In Tamil Nadu27s

Spectators Observe As River Mixes With Sea In Tamil Nadu

Almost every river flows to an ocean. Some only reach the shores of lakes, but most of the time, they eventually find their way to the sea. There are many ways how it can happen, but the most common one is when water overflows from the existing rivers and changes the direction of the riverbed. What seemingly starts as a calm and quiet spill, it soon becomes a roaring mass of water, louder than the ocean . This totally natural breach starts slowly and it pushes through the sand. As the river flows steadily, we can see that it makes a deeper and deeper channel to make its way to the ocean. The good thing is that this huge amount of water will overflow into the ocean, not causing damage in the local area. As the channel becomes wider and wider, more water is going through, securing its way to the ocean. As it gathers momentum, rolling down the sand, the speed increases and the amount of water is huge. At one moment, it is so strong that it can sweep off everything along the way. As the river, carrying out sand, pours into the ocean, it can be clearly seen the change of color it cause. The river blends with the huge expanse of ocean water and it can’t be stopped. The river and the ocean become one and the view is very powerful. The sky, the ocean and the river, merge in one enormous vastness that is hard to imagine. Rainfall over an extended period and an extended area can cause major rivers to overflow their banks. The water can cover enormous areas. Downstream areas may be affected, even when they didn’t receive much rain themselves. The rain water enters the river in many ways. Some rain will fall into the river directly, but that alone doesn’t make the river rise high. A lot of rain water will run off the surface when the soil is saturated or hard. It will flow to small rivers that flow to larger rivers and these rivers flow into even larger rivers. In this way all the rain that fell in a large area (catchment area) comes together in this one very large river. When there is a lot of rain over a long period, you see the river rise gradually as it is fed with water form smaller rivers. It takes time for all the rainwater to reach the river, but once it is in the river it has to flow downstream to sea. The water spreads out as much as possible flowing to the lower lying areas before slowly rising. A breach is very dangerous for the people living close to it. The strength of the water may carry cars, trees and even houses away. Take a look at this footage of a river flowing into the Gulf of Mannar in the village of Mookaiyur in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu. The incredible force of the river pummeling the ocean causes the sand beneath to shift and make a natural barrier. The muddy water slowly but surely turns to blue as it continues its journey into the sea. What dо you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below.
