Antarctic tunnels: 820-foot-high channels have been discovered under Antarctic ice

So. And these amazing structures are nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. Can you imagine?

From there, you can’t see anything! But it is beneath this deep ice shelf in Antarctica that scientists have discovered 820-foot-high channels. The mysterious tunnels are nearly as high as the Eiffel tower.

This project led by the British Antarctic Survey flew a plane over the Flichner-Ronne Ice Shelf. And there, at the bottom of the ice, they spotted (radars and satellite images) under-ice tunnels. They suggest these long cavities were formed by meltwater flowing underneath the ice, over land, and into the ocean.

This would signify that water underneath ice sheets pours out into the ocean in focused channels and not in thin, continuous layers, as previously thought.

Now, it would be so great to know if these Antarctica underground channels are only present under the Flichner-Ronne Ice Shelf or homogeneously distributed under Antarctica’s ice cap!

Terrifying deep sea animals: Discover the black scaleless dragonfish also known as the deep sea dragonfish!

It is eerie and creepy. As if the filmmakers of Alien found their iconic monster in the deep ocean.

There are many reports of strange and weird deep sea creatures… But this one known as the deep sea dragonfish or the scaleless dragonfish is terrifying. The deep sea dragonfish lives in deep ocean waters at depths of up to 5,000 feet (1,500 meters). Although dragonfish species are found in most oceans the world, the deep sea dragonfish is limited mainly to the North and Western Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.

This creepy fish is a ferocious predator. The dragonfish has a large head and mouth equipped with many sharp, fang-like teeth. The Black Dragonfish (Idiacanthus atlanticus) is known for its extremely large teeth and its small body (6 inches or 15 centimeters).

As for lots of deep sea creatures, the scaleless dragonfish uses bioluminescence to attract its preys and mate. Photophores (for light signals) are placed at the end of a barbel attached to its chin and along its body.

The dragonfish can use its light-producing barbel like a fishing lure. Once an unsuspecting fish gets too close, it is snapped up in the dragonfish’s powerful jaws. This alien type of fish feeds on small fish and crustaceans.

Here a compilation of eerie, creepy, and scary deep-sea fish with BIG TEETH:

Little is known about these eerie fish. But one is sure… This strange fish is haunting the deep oceans and helped at creating the American science-fiction action horror ALIENS.

There is a floating garbage island called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

It has grown so big that it is now visible from the Californian coast. Disgusting!

Imagine you are relaxing at your preferate California beach. You watch the open ocean trying to spot sea animals, dolphins or whales… All of a sudden you believe you see one. But actually it is just a huge mountain of trash: The “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.”

Yes this floating mess is now indeed visible off the California coast and according to scientists already impacting on the ecosystem negatively. Almost as bad as this river?

By now, the enormous floating landfill is growing in the ocean between Hawaii and California. It has been discovered in 1997 and monitored since then.

Captain Charles Moore and his team of scientists from the Algalita Marine Research Institute believe it is responsible for enlarged and discolored livers found in fish around this floating garbage.

To decrease this Great Pacific Garbage Patch, we should actually ban plastic bags. But are we ready now?

Colorado Springs Explosion Noises ? Are you also hearing explosion noises in and around Colorado Springs?

Although their source is still unknown, they may be related to army exercises or homecoming ceremony.

Many troops are now training in the US. Maybe to eradicate ISIS in Irak. So soldiers have to train, to get fit for war.

Colorado Springs is home to both Army and Air Force bases. It is surrounded by military installations, excluding Schriever Air Force Base, which is located east of the city in El Paso County. Sometimes, soldiers come back home. There was actually a homecoming ceremony at Fort Carson planned on Wednesday. Maybe it has been postponed (actually for tomorrow). Or they are just exercising. 

For example, full-scale crisis exercises will be conducted at Fort Carson on August 26 and 27 at Fort Carson to test and train the installation’s emergency preparedness.

Moreover, the 4th Space Operations Squadron demonstrated its ability to conduct mobile operations during a training mission exercise Friday at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. So the loud booming noise could also be linked to this training made as ‘realistic as possible’.

In any cases I believe these explosion noises being related to military actions.

Noise advisory: Camp Pendleton is letting you know that they are conducting explosive trainings in and around the base.

So don’t be too surprised hearing strange sounds and explosive booms the next two days if you live in a 50 miles radius from the base.

An upside-down rainbow is an extremely rare phenomena normally only occuring near the poles.

But this lucky English guy spotted one just over Blackpool, UK. Have you also seen it?

Yes, Ian Brookes, an amateur photographer captured this amazing sky phenomenon in his back garden: A SMILING RAINBOW also known as circumzenithal arc. So cool!

This guy is freaky lucky because such phenomenon actually only occurs near North or South poles.

In comparison to ‘normal’ rainbows, happy rainbows form when sunlight reflects off ice crystals in clouds at high altitude (and not off rain).

Finally, in circumzenithal arcs, colours are in reverse order: From violet on the top to red at the bottom.

Here another example caught on video:

How do these upside-down rainbows form?

  • Circumzenithal arcs are the result of freak atmospheric conditions, rarely seen outside the North and South Poles.
  • To appear, the clouds must be convex to the sun, with the ice particles lined up together in the right direction, to refract the light.
  • The sunlight bounce off the ice crystals, sending the light rays back up and bending the sunlight like a glass prism into a spectrum of colour.
  • The arc is generally only seen in the artic circle.
  • The ‘rainbow” is much brighter and more concentrated than a rainfall rainbow.
  • The arc usually vanishes quickly because the cirrus clouds containing the ice crystals shift their position.
