Nature works wonders.
All are perfectly familiar with man-made optical illusions, where much less is known, that nature can also create stunning optical illusions. In this review we will talk about such “miracles”, which, however, explainable by science. That’s for sure – “don’t believe your eyes!”.
It may seem that the waterfall “on fire.” In fact, when the light hits the water falls at the right angle, it looks like “Horse tail” comes on.
2. “About the sun”
This illusion is known as the “false sun”. A similar phenomenon occurs when ice crystals in the atmosphere create the effect of two additional suns on both sides of the sun.
This is a very complex type of Mirage, which often seems similar to the real man-made objects. Fata Morgana occurs due to the fact that air masses with different temperatures distort the light waves.
4. “Light pole”
In this case, the illusion of the “blame” also, the ice crystals in the air. Over the light sources in the sky there is a giant vertical beam.
5. Brokensky Ghost
Also called “mountain Ghost”. This phenomenon occurs when the enlarged shadow of a man thrown onto the clouds or fog, which is below it.
6. “Atlantic road”
This bridge in Norway looks like a ramp leading to nowhere. In fact, it is an optical illusion, because the bridge actually bends and “disappears” over the horizon.
7. The Moon Illusion
All noticed that when the Moon is close to the horizon, it seems much more. But if you look at it through the “binoculars” of linked hands, the Moon will suddenly decrease. This happens because the brain adjusts the size of the moon in relation to another some object on the horizon and (wrongly) decides that the Moon must actually be a lot more!
8. “Green beam”
Sometimes this phenomenon occurs immediately before or after sunset: on the edge of the solar disk appears green spot or beam for a few seconds. Despite the fact that it is caused by various factors, the common explanation is that light refracts in the atmosphere and causes this effect.
9. Anti-aircraft arc
The next optical phenomenon similar to a rainbow, but the colors of this arc, as a rule, much more pure. And due to it, unlike the rainbows, not rain drops, and ice crystals.
Halo often seen around the Sun or the moon. It looks like the halo surrounding this celestial body.
11. Alpine glow
It’s an interesting phenomenon occurs when the sun had set beyond the horizon. Due to the light reflected from particles in the atmosphere, sometimes it seems that the mountains are illuminated reddish glow.
12. Aurora Borealis
In the Northern hemisphere the Aurora is known as Aurora Borealis and in the southern hemisphere it is called Aurora Australis. These phenomena are caused by magnetic rays and the solar wind interacting with the upper layers of the atmosphere.
13. Salt marshes
Salt marshes are found throughout the world. They can cause unusual illusory depth perception, because the person sees no landmarks.
14. “Head of the Apache”
The head of Apache is a rock on the French island of Abyan that looks like the Indian head. This phenomenon is known as pareidolia – illusory images as a basis which are the details of the real object.
15. “Guardian Of The Badlands”
This rock formation in Alberta, Canada can be seen on Google Earth. On top of the mountain look like the head of a man dressed in the headdress of the canadian aborigines. Moreover, the mountains look like “Indian,” whether in earrings, or headphones.
16. Cloud with lightning shaft
Cloud with lightning shaft is one of the most impressive circuses. To see such clouds along the sea coasts and they look, to put it mildly, evil.
