Meanwhile, the world and nature like to surprise and keep proving that we actually know very little about our planet.
#1 When You Go Out on the Balcony on Monday Morning
#2 Ice Tower on Erebus Volcano in Antarctica
Inside this active volcano is a lake of lava. Water vapour comes out of the fissures and freezes, thus forming ice towers that can reach heights of 10 m.
#3 The Road through Death Valley in the USA
#4 Swirling Circles of Ice on Rivers and Lakes
Scientists disagree on how these ice disks are formed. They most likely form when cold air meets a water vortex.
#5 Seahorses Range in Body Length from 1.5 to 35 CM
Many species are at risk of becoming extinct because of human activities such as bottom trawling, over-fishing, and habitat destruction. Pygmy seahorse known as Hippocampus denise, are typically just 16 mm long – smaller than most fingernails.
#6 Sun Pillars Seen in Canada
Colorful streaks of light can be seen just after sunset or just before dawn. They are formed when ice crystals, found in the clouds, fall and reflect sunlight.

The water turns red due to algae that begin to multiply. The toxic algae is furrowwort causing massive fish die-offs.
#9 A Thousand-Year-Old Oak Tree with an Adjacent Chapel (France)
Located in the French farming village of Allouville-Bellefosse. Scientists recognise it as 800 years old. The tree is a timeless symbol of French strength as it has stood steadfast throughout the Hundred Years War, The Black Death, Reformation, the Revolution, both World Wars, and the Napoleonic era.

#11 Rooftop Pool
The world’s first “sky pool” – a 25-meter-long swimming pool suspended 10 stories in the air between two blocks of luxury flats. The transparent pool at Embassy Gardens is three meters deep with a water depth of 1.2 meters, and constructed with the help of aquarium designers
#12 Cicada with McDonald`S Logo 😉
#13 Snow Resembling White Threads
A resident of finland discovered a strange phenomenon on lake suolijärvi. The reservoir was covered with snow that looked like threads. Meteorologists are not sure how they were formed. Most likely due to wind and water action.
#14 Glowing Fish Sculpture Made of Discarded Bottles
These giant fish make a powerful environmental statement as they emerge from the sands of Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This year, the city of Rio is hosting the UN Conference on Sustainable Development.

Hubei Province, the bridge road is 60 meters long and 1. 6 meters wide, with the highest point at 1,430 meters above the ground.
#19 Brinicle or Ice Finger of Death
This phenomenon occurs in the arctic and antarctic. A large amount of salt detaches from the ice cap and begins to sink. At this time, the ocean water freezes around it creating something like a pipe that freezes everything it meets on its way.
