IF YOU HAVE BEAUTIFUL NATURAL PIX or weather pix, please don't be shy to post them here. I will be using this thread to update new pix and stories.

Snow doughnuts, North Cascades National Park, Washington, USA

This is a rare meteorological spectacle that occurs in specific weather conditions in mountainous areas. Unlike snowballs, snow doughnuts – sometimes called snow rollers – have a cylindrical shape because the weaker and thinner inner layers have been blown away by wind. Find these inedible doughnuts in any snow-covered mountain terrain, from the Rocky Mountains to the Giant Mountains in Czech Republic.

These vortexes occur most frequently in tropical and subtropical areas.  However large shallow lakes have been known to spawn a few of their own, i.e.; Lake Erie. Waterspouts are often accompanied by high winds, large hail and intense lightning. Naturally, they’re best viewed close to the water, and the Florida Keys archipelago is known as a top place to see them. Meteorologist attributes these vortexes to non-aqueous rain (animal falling from sky) 


Fire rainbow, (circumhorizontal arc) West Virginia, USA

This phenomenon is extremely rare because it takes the right type of cloud, the sun shining at a certain angle and ice crystals aligned in a certain position for it to form. You’ll have the best chance of seeing this colourful ball in the US, especially Los Angeles, where the sun is shining at the right angle for 670 hours between late March and late September

PARANATURAL DEBUNKS RECENT UFO OVER AREA 51

ufo-sighting-alien-craft.jpg.80e1547f3d4ca413e2889dc7d1d5cb7e.jpg

UFO sighting? 'Alien craft' spotted not far from Area 51 sparks conspiracy claims UFOs have long been associated with Area 51 and an alien life enthusiast has now shared bizarre footage purporting to show a disc-shaped craft hovering near the mysterious military base.

I think not! It didn't take long after posting this article below for a mistake in identity to take place on the net.


Lenticular Clouds' that cap off the beauty of nature.

These have been mistaken for UFOs at times. The cloud formation in the troposphere occurs perpendicular to the wind direction. Gliders use it to get good lifts and create altitude and distance records.

ARCTIC THUNDER + ARCTIC LIGHTNING = ARCTIC FIRE

Arctic thunder and lightning in the north rizing.

Arcticfire.jpg.b443b3a7ba1fa6f188e84b4d5c73f705.jpg

Climate change is driving up the number of forest fires ignited by lightning, and it's pushing them farther north, to the edges of the Arctic tundra, researchers say.

Observing thunder and lightning in the extreme north is usually rare.

Fire Whirls

Also known as fire devils or fire tornadoes this terrifying looking weather forms when intense rising heat and strong winds combine together. Sometimes they can form a tornado like structure that suck up burning debris and gases but luckily for us they rarely form full blown tornados.

HABOOB

haboob-768x384.jpg.b052ac5633c8099a66cf1d87d559f0f9.jpg

The term “haboob” is an Arabic word that means “drifting or blowing.” Haboobs are similar to monsoons in their intensity, but they are storms made of dust rather than rain.

While monsoons affect tropical islands and coastal areas, haboobs are confined to dry land-locked areas. They are prevalent in the Sahara Desert, but they also happen in the United States, particularly in the southwestern

      Scud Cloud
      Pannus, or scud clouds, is a type of fractus cloud at low height above ground, detached, and of irregular form, found beneath   nimbostratus clouds.

      These clouds are often ragged or wispy in appearance. When caught in the outflow (downdraft) beneath a thunderstorm, scud clouds will often move faster than the storm clouds themselves. When in an inflow (updraft) area, scud clouds tend to rise and may exhibit lateral movement ranging from very little to substantial.

      I do enjoy getting an explanation on bizarre events like large amounts of dead birds falling from the skies. It's UFO's, no its HAARP,  no it's... the weather!

      I love this place. It's like going back in time. It's been a while since I've been there. The culture, the art, the architect, the food, the beauty, and the...  it's been a while since I've been there.
