The world is full of mysteries all around. Here are some of the rarest and most unbelievable events captured on the camera

They can be observed everywhere in the world, but the phenomenon is rare, so you will not find a lot of pictures and videos of them.16309060-5927738674_914f2b5c2d_o1-1502689346-650-5a29f63b68-1506978620 In March 2017, the world first saw a pic in a Zambian newspaper: a strange figure was floating in the air above a supermarket. Local citizens considered it a divine phenomenon, but most of them saw the obvious photomontage. Admittedly, it is fake, though such figures do exist.16309110-381283-0-1502472861-1502472864-650-cf8ddb1e40-1506978620sun dog, or the false Sun, is analogical to the phenomenon of the false Moon. It can be observed in winter because sun dogs are nothing more than sunbeams refracted by ice crystals.16309160-Fargo_Sundogs_2_18_09-1502258866-650-fbceab8743-1506978620 The fire tornado — one of the most destructive phenomena — originates from several fire bodies. It is more often observed during wildfires, and it is really frightening: you can’t stop the spinning hot storm. 16309210-10478918024_6af22698b8_o-1502203342-650-c7b82d3891-1506978620 The strange Norwegian spiral anomaly, last seen in the winter of 2009, gave birth to tons of wild guesses. People spoke of an alien invasion and black holes caused by the hadron collider. However, there was an “earthly” explanation: experts found the reason for a failed ballistic missile blast-off.16309260-381285-0-1502473126-1502473131-650-7b785f8125-1506978620Pearl clouds also come out of light refraction. They appear at a height of almost 50,000 feet, and the minimum temperature should be −78°C.16309310-16060085026_0348b97fe3_o-1502200746-650-c0e8e21fdb-1506978620 A moon dog, or paraselene, is one of the halo variations when the real Earth satellite produces 2 “twins” on its sides. This optical phenomenon is rarely seen because the Moon should be full and maximally bright before it appears.16309360-11957931303_59685dd1df_o-1502200613-650-fe0cc7f92a-1506978620The phenomenon of Cloud Holes is still unexplained. One of the theories is the following: when an aircraft is flying through the clouds, some drops of water in the clouds turn into heavy crystals and fall down to the ground.16309410-HolePunchCloud-1502200199-650-4dbb25f5bd-1506978620 The full eclipse can be observed fairly often. Nevertheless, the annular solar eclipse, when you can see a thin ring around the Sun, is a rare thing. The last one was recorded in 1827.16309460-7237387858_a16e992c27_o-1502198827-650-4da9365f1c-1506978620 A tornado is not so rare a phenomenon, but it’s difficult to catch on camera.16309510-F5_tornado_Elie_Manitoba_2007-1502196468-650-fb1a1e79f9-1506978620 Lenticular (lens) clouds don’t move, staying in their place even if the wind is strong. It’s probably a popular reason to think that such sky objects might be UFOs.16309560-27089288414_f1e9f2d3eb_o-1502689055-650-22a0b8d124-1506978620 A circumhorizontal arc appears for the same reason as a regular rainbow: it is the result of light refraction. Still, there should be a coincidence or some other condition to see this rare “wonder of the world.”16309610-4625512949_0010bf3ea4_o-1502295183-650-4c2000d7f6-1506978620 The phenomenon of mammatus clouds occurs after a strog storm because air masses move in different directions. Though they look threatening, they are not at all dangerous.16309660-EN_01107300_1547-1502690526-650-a6a9e3a563-1506978620

Volcanic lightning appears during an eruption because of the collision between gas and ashes emitted into the air. The phenomenon is even rarer than the eruption itself, and catching it on camera is great luck.16309710-Eyjafjallajkull_by_Terje_Srgjerd-1502279972-650-074f79c756-1506978620

A moonbow is a natural phenomenon that can’t be seen by the naked eye because we can’t differentiate the colors in the dark but by using a long exposure, you’ll find out that a moonbow resembles a rainbow very much.


A mirage occurs when there is a considerable difference between the density and the temperature in various air layers. A mirage is somehow a reflection of a real object magnified and distorted.16309810-Superior_mirage_of_a_boat_3-1502187689-650-43af8d7f9a-1506978620
