There are times when you’re just walking down the street for no particular reason and suddenly spot something weird. At first glance, it seems like a super common object like debris from a tree that was cut but that also looks like the skyline of a futuristic metropolis or a road that looks similar to the Rainbow Road from Mario Kart. The world is full of mysteries like these and users from all over the world capture these beautiful and strange experiences to share with all of us online.

Bright Side browsed through some of the most exciting and strange optical illusions that made us believe common objects are much more than what they seem, and this is what we found.
