It would seem, the modern science has already explained everything that occurs around us. But at the nature for us there are a lot of surprises: mysterious funnels in sands, a zone where doesn't catch radio and don't work devices, an ice tsunami and other amazing things which acquire myths and mystifications because admire and frighten at the same time.
We suggests you to get acquainted with the surprising natural phenomena and anomalies over which scientists should break the head. You can feel the researcher too and try to find an explanation of anomaly which we have prepared as a bonus.
Very unusual natural occurrence which since ancient times directs horror at people — a rain from animals. It can be fishes, water spiders and even frogs. For many years scientists disproved the idea of existence of so strange phenomenon, and because of an extraordinary rarity of the phenomenon nobody fixedly was engaged in his studying. Some even considered a rain from fishes an invention of those who have seen migration of rare species of fishes by land.
André-Mari Ampere was the first who was seriously taken for studying of a rain from animals. He has stated a hypothesis that he fishes lifts a powerful stream of air in air and transfers to long distance. Later scientists have added his theory: it is not simple wind, but a water tornado. It would explain the fact that some "live rainfall" has been frozen, that is rose a tornado by considerable height.
But still in-depth and detailed studies on this matter weren't conducted.
One of the most large-scale and ancient natural anomalies which in 1977 was found by the researcher Walter Alvares in Italy near the city of Gubbio. The scientist has found clay layer in which the content of iridium by 300 times exceeded norm in the gorge. This layer lay at a depth which is geological border between the Mesozoic and the Cenozoic, that is corresponds to the period of extinction of dinosaurs.
Later the same layers have been found in many other countries. Many scientists assume that iridic anomaly and disappearance of dinosaurs — a consequence of collision of Earth with a huge asteroid (presumably 9 km in the diameter), but so far it remains only a hypothesis. Other researchers are sure that to all fault the increased volcanic activity.

The phenomenon which plunged into sacred horror still ancient people. m the point is that on the place of lightning stroke sometimes there is a zone of high voltage which can cripple and even to kill the person. "A thunderous bald patch" he was nicknamed for a burned grass and trees there where "the fiery finger of Perun" — a lightning has got.
Earlier "thunderous bald patches" were considered as deadly long time, but modern researches show that the zone disappears already in a few minutes. But it doesn't mean that it is necessary to risk and neglect safety rules.

Do you represent if scientists have suddenly found a live dinosaur? The same effect was had also by discovery which was made by David Nobl when he has found the trees which have received the name Wollemia nobilis in the Australian reserve. They treat a species of evergreen coniferous plants which was considered died out 145 million years ago. It is surprising that population contained only several tens of trees whereas others the "live minerals" of a plant which have lived up to our times have far bigger distribution.
What is remarkable, in 1994 when the pine a vollemiya has been open, the authorities of Australia didn't hurry to share this information with the world, and till 2005 opening was considered as the state secret, the decision to increase and extend unique population hasn't been made yet, having opened sale of saplings. For now fans get the most rare "live minerals", scientists still argue how this look managed to escape.

It seems impossible, but in 2016 in Chile for one night the Lake Riyesko which area exceeded 14 sq.km. has completely disappeared. Together with water also all living creatures have evaporated, on the place of once majestic reservoir the desert was formed.
Scientists and the authorities of the country meanwhile find it difficult to offer a full explanation, but suspect the same motions of soil because of which China has lost the lake and 25 tons of fish.

Anomaly on the basis of which conspiracy theories and beliefs in aliens blossom in magnificent color. "The silence zone" is a desert in Mexico on border with the USA which has received the name because in this area radio doesn't work and often other devices fail. In the seventies the last century the research station has been built there, and scientists managed to find also other strangenesses, for example magnetic anomaly which can be a cause of failure of devices, and the fact that the level of ultra-violet radiation over a zone is higher than norm for 30%.
Because of keen interest of fans of all mystical to the Mexican desert the scientific community treats anomaly with doubt. Don't improve a situation and false certificates of "eyewitnesses" which complicate search of the actual information.
Many rocks in deserts are covered with unusual material which is called natural varnish. It is remarkable the fact that else ancient people scratched on him the images which have perfectly remained up to now, that is the firmness of "varnish" is amazing. And though scientists managed to define its structure — clay, manganese, iron and microorganisms, the exact origin of this substance remains undecided.
Today the theory that varnish is produced by the microorganisms found in it to protect themselves from influences of the environment predominates. But meanwhile it is only one of hypotheses.

The rare and dangerous anomaly was found on Maunt Baldie's hill in the USA. This hill — a big sandy dune which is called live or traveling because under the influence of wind every year it is displaced on meter - two. But danger not in it, and in mysterious funnels which began to appear in a dune.
For the first time have learned about them when the little tourist, 6-year-old Nathan Vesser has got into trouble. Under the boy the 3-meter funnel which has nearly ruined him was suddenly formed. From a sandy trap of Nathan rescuers have pulled out. After this case scientists have undertaken studying of the phenomenon, have recorded regular emergence of the same funnels, but haven't offered a final explanation yet. According to researchers, Baldie's funnels can represent the new geological phenomenon.

Unique, and from it even more terrible natural phenomenon which happens at a certain combination of wind force and speed of warming. Under the influence of these forces during thawing ice floods banks lakes and crawls over the land as the frozen tsunami. Weight, of course, more slowly than water, but all the same quickly enough and inevitably moves. Eyewitnesses compare a sound of an ice tsunami to noise of the arriving train. But not only the sound, but also the destroying force is terrible.
Studying of this phenomenon still continues.
Recently on Google Earth there was a strange strip passing through all Earth from one pole to another. And at once users of network began to share photos of the similar line of clouds in the sky. How you think that it can be?
