However, there is more to it too that we don’t even know yet. There is the kind of beauty that can appeal to your senses and may also appear variably extraordinary.

10. Ice Caves : Most Amazing Natural Phenomena
Look at the photo above…looks freezing, right? Don’t you think it truly deserves to be on our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena? It truly does. These beautiful ice caves are temporary structures that are created at the edges of glaciers when the water that flows into the glaciers digs a hole in them. The ice is tightly packed, and has thus limited amount of air bubbles. It absorbs in all the light, but leaves out the blue. This is the reason it appears to have such an extraordinary color and look.
9. Coral Reefs
Coral reefs are the next beautiful miracles to find a spot on our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena. These beautiful marine life structures make the undersea appear to be a colorful feast of springtime. Some of the coral reef beds are as old as 5000 to 7000 years. Their unique colors and beauty speak aloud of the nature’s beautiful hands and creativity.
8. The Bark of Eucalyptus Tree
Trees are always beautiful to look at. It is vastly believed that ‘greenery’ helps you improve your eyesight. It works like a balm for eyes that are tired of watching other colors. Therefore, greenery is always synonymous with freshness and healing. However, nobody is ever heard speaking of the barks of trees. They all appear to be brown and hard, and maybe not very attractive for some of us. The next amazing natural phenomena to make it to our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena is the bark of the Eucalyptus tree. This is no ordinary looking bark with commonplace color. It is more like a rainbow trapped in the bark. It has a variety of colors growing on it. Mostly found in Philippines, the tree is also grown in other countries such as France and other parts of Europe. Known to be one of the tallest trees in the world, it is also one of the most beautiful and colorful.
Ever seen spider webs spread vast and wide like the sheets of snow? Well, this is the next one we are sharing on our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena. This amazing natural phenomenon can be viewed in the area near Wagga Wagga, Australia. Thousands of spiders cover the field with cobwebs and make it look like a magical world of spiders. If you want to see this beautiful sight in real, you must make sure that it is the right time to do so. These cobwebs do not appear throughout the year, but only when thousands of spiders are fleeing floodwaters and migrating across the land leaving behind their extraordinary looking legacy!
6. Sun Dogs
So, what do we have next on our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena? Sun Dogs!! Ever heard of that? Well, we are here to help. This one is formed due to the ice crystals present in the atmosphere. They appear in slightly different shapes and sizes – they could be like large halos or circles – around the sun. Their appearance is possible due to light refraction. They are so bright that they might even appear to be like three suns in the sky. This amazing natural phenomenon can be seen in the sky all the time. It is just that only at times it appears to be very prominent.
5. The Storm that Never Ends
Next on our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena we have the amazing story of the everlasting storm. Known as the Cataumbo lightning, this natural phenomenon occurs in the Catatumbo River in Venezuela. Right at the opened end of the river, a storm cloud swirls. This in turn creates the effect mentioned above – namely, the Catatumbo Lightning. It happens almost half a year with 160 nights annually. During these nights, it occurs 10 hours a day and during each hour, it can be witnessed 280 times.
4. The Blood Tides
Water water everywhere but not a drop to drink – very rightly said by Tennyson. How about molding it a bit for the sake of our next entry on the list of ten most amazing natural phenomena? So, it would sound something like – Blood Blood everywhere and not a drop to drink!! Well, this does appear like blood in the Ocean of China, but it actually is water. The tides in the sea become red due to the presence of Algae, which accumulates rapidly on the shore. This may actually be very harmful for the marine life as it produces poison. But, it sure creates an extraordinary sight for the sight-seers. People from across the world come to witness this amazing natural phenomenon live throughout the year, as this natural phenomenon occurs regularly in China.
3. Snow Donuts
Want to try a snow donut? Well, it may appear exactly like a donut, but snow dounts are not eatable; they are our next amazing natural phenomena to get into our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena. They are not very common, though. They can only occur during specific temperature conditions when snow either falls or is blown by the wind. The snow ball catches more snow on its way, when it is rolling. During this the middle collapses and thus forming a donut shape. While I am writing this, I figure out, it looks more like Polo – the mint with a hole.
Auroras are indeed one of the most breathtaking natural phenomenons that man has ever sighted. These polar lights refer to the show of natural light that presents itself on the stage of sky at places that are higher in latitude. They are formed at the time the active electrically-charged particles from solar wind speed up along the magnetic field lines into the upper atmosphere and collide with gas atoms. As a result of this, the atoms give off light and forms a beautiful natural phenomenon, which we have included in our list of ten amazing natural phenomena.
1. Blue Ocean
Next on our list of ten most amazing natural phenomena, we have the blue waves or the bioluminescent waves on the shore of Maldives. This is such a perfect and beautiful natural phenomena that we have placed it on number one on our list here. The beach of Maldives is a habitat for various species of phytoplankton; as these give off light, when they are washed ashore with the moving tides, they tend to produce light energy as a result of chemical energy transformation. The naturally glowing planktons offer an amazing sight of bioluminescent bloom.
Nature in every form is beautiful but the 10 most amazing natural phenomena that we have shared with you above are just out of this world. These are the true wonders of nature that exist in different parts of the world. These 10 amazing natural phenomena are the true miracles on earth. We hope that you are lucky enough to view at least half of these in real life. Good luck!!!
