This is why we gathered 10 items those of you who camp or want to start doing it will find extremely useful.
A giant, roiling mountain of a thundercloud is moving towards you. It’s completely black and goes in stark contrast with the bright blue sky right above and behind you. You see a blinding flash and, in a few seconds, a deafening whip-like crack of thunder. And then, the rain starts gushing down from the heavens.The wind rises, you see treetops bending low towards the ground some miles away and getting closer by the second. You freeze in place, realizing you can’t escape anyway. But when the rain almost reaches you, its movement suddenly stops. Just a few feet before you, there’s a veritable flood, but right where you stand, it’s dry and even sunny. And after a short while, the angry thundercloud spills its last drops and disperses.
Aah, beautiful. You’re walking with your friend, and look up at the sky. The sun looks a bit different today... like it has some kind of ring around it, a rainbow-type thing. Huh... "Look at that!’’ Your friend pulls his head up out of his phone. “You shouldn’t look directly at the...stop everything,” he says. “It’s a sun halo, we need to find shelter now, unless you have the world’s biggest umbrella on you!”A sun halo is nature’s sign that there’s a snow or rainstorm on its way. It’s caused by clouds that are made of bazillions of small ice crystals, flying around at 20,000 feet (6 km)! Sunlight goes through those crystals, which causes the light to split and refract, like when there’s a rainbow. Now, don’t look at the sun halo directly. It’s gonna be tempting because it’s not something you see every day, plus it’s really beautiful... but ultraviolet light can burn the exposed tissue of your retina and cause serious damage. So not worth it.
Curiously, many things that surround us are merely optical illusions. For example, a rainbow is not at any particular distance from us but is just a reflection of light. It is beautiful and mesmerizing, but, like any other illusion, it does not last long and eventually disappears. Fortunately, today we can capture these things with a camera to prolong these sweet memories.
It’s kinda weird, but mining finds are often some of the most exciting discoveries. Ready for a treasure hunt? Hmm, or maybe we can just take a look at what other people found? Without leaving our comfort zone, you know.
You’re in the countryside, in the middle of nowhere, when it happens. You look up at the sky and notice that it’s taken an ominous yellow hue.

Somewhere near California, there’s a curious place with over 5,200 underwater holes located right on the seafloor. No one was bothered much about them, — those holes were known to the maritime community and weren’t a big deal. Everyone just thought it was due to underground gas. However, back in 2019, the seafloor was investigated with a robot, and guess what — no gas was found there.They did find something, though. It turned out that 15,000 more holes appeared on the seafloor. Some scientists claim those were fish that had dug those holes. Seems like they just kicked up dust to accommodate themselves, and the dust was simply washed away by the currents. Right, some fish did live in those holes, but most of them were vacant. So, the mystery is yet to be solved!
Let’s take a good look at the rainbow. How many colors can you see? I guess most of you will answer “7.” First, we have red and orange. Then, yellow, green, and blue.
