These 25 photos may seem like they come from another planet, but it turns out that our little Earth is capable of some really weird things.

1) Infinite Wave: Occurs twice a year in Brazil when the Atlantic Ocean meets the mouth of the Amazon. The wave that is created can travel 500 miles inland before slowing down.

2) Underwater circles in the grain: In Japan, male puffs (Fugu) waving their fins create these alien circles in the sand.

3) Bleeding Glacier: Also known as the "Bloody Waterfall" in Antarctica, the water that flows is like blood due to iron oxide.

4) Blue lava: Due to the ignition of sulfur gases at extremely high temperatures, this volcano in Indonesia produces blue luminous lava.

5) Lake that calcifies: This creepy lake in Tanzania, Lake Natron, has such a high pH level that it calcifies every animal that enters the water.

6) Shrouded Trees: During the flood period in Pakistan, spiders are forced to flee into tree canopies where their webs create this effect.

7) Relief in Danxia: Over millions of years, red relief and mineral deposits in certain parts of China have created this relief in rainbow colors.

8) Frozen Flowers: In Arctic regions, these floral ice forms occur due to the difference between ocean temperature and atmosphere.

9) Green flash: This rare occurrence occurs when conditions are favorable at the end or beginning of sunset.

10) Hairy ice: Water from plants in icy weather can have this effect due to the presence of certain bacteria.

11) Horsetail Falls: In Yosemite National Park, California, this waterfall looks like lava with its bright orange glow on certain days in February.

12) Lens-shaped clouds: Probably Fox Mulder mistaken them for UFOs. These clouds occur when moist air covers the mountain.

13) Living rocks: They are not really rocks: These sea creatures line up on the beaches of Chile and are completely immobile.

14) Vortices: Tidal waves colliding create these vortices that can suck up swimmers and boat drivers. Swimmers and boat drivers beware!

15) Rainbow-colored trees: This Australian eucalyptus sheds its bark to reveal vivid colors.

16) Crab Army: On the coast of Australia, on the Christmas Islands, the annual migration of nearly 120 million red crabs creates an unusual sight as they travel to the ocean.

17) Steam towers: They appear together with aurora borealis. Due to these geothermal formations, the area looks like from a sci-fi film.

18) Black Sun: It is formed by a massive migration of starlings and can be seen every spring in the sky above Denmark.

19) Continuous storm: The mouth of the Catatumbo River in Venezuela creates weather conditions leading to 160 consecutive storm nights.

20) Blooming desert: Every few years, after particularly heavy rains, flowers sprout in these deserts in Chile.

21) Big Blue Hole: This attraction from Belize was formed by erosion in ancient times when the sea level was much lower.

22) Migration of Butterflies: Every year throughout the United States and Mexico, beautiful butterflies gather for migration.

23. Underwater Waterfall: On the island of Mauritius, this sudden drop in the ocean creates the illusion of an unusual waterfall.

24) Volcanic lightning: When a volcano erupts, the amount of electrical and static charge released sometimes leads to this fiery electric storm.

25) White rainbows: The rounded fog looks like a rainbow ghost!

I am a fan of the Indonesia volcano. I haven't ever seen anything like that. I found everything pretty interesting. I'm just stuck on the lava

Pictures are absolutely cool. My favourites are #5 and #23 =) I think it would be really cool to see an "underwater waterfall" but i suspect it would appear as grand when it wasn't moving =P

Awesome list. The few that I have seen on this list have left me speechless after viewing in person. There were some you included I didn't know about and will have to add to my list when I start traveling again.

Another one you could add is one of the places that have Bioluminescent Waves. It is really cool to see at night the water or waves turn a bright blueish color at they light up. A natural phenomenon that occurs when small dinoflagellates in the water can produce light by a reaction (luciferin) with oxygen and photoprotein. This enzyme (luciderin) helps in the process of being a catalyst to being the light reaction you will see. A cool place is Grand Cayman, Mosquito Bay in Puerto Rico, Matsu Islands in Taiwan, and Toyama Bay in Japan.
