7 mysterious natural phenomena that have no explanation

Sometimes it seems that the closer we are to the solution, the more complex puzzles we toss nature. And often the best minds of mankind fight over the solution of this or that question, but they can not explain the mysterious phenomena occurring in different parts of the world. We have collected the most strange and unusual phenomena that have driven to a standstill more than one generation of scientists.
Giant stone heads
Moai, or the idols of Easter island, are giant stone heads that appeared out of nowhere and it is not clear for what purpose they were used. Just on the island in the South Pacific ocean, owned by Chile, is 997 statues with a height of five to seven meters. And some of them are scattered in a chaotic manner, and others are built in orderly rows. There is a hypothesis that the ancient inhabitants of the island thus honored the memory of dead ancestors, but these assumptions have not been confirmed.

Archaeologists have suggested that these lines, the so-called geoglyphs, were part of the astronomical calendar, but then denied his version.

Sliding stones
Stones in the Valley of Death, which slide on the ground under the influence of a mysterious force, also attract the attention of scientists from around the world. All this action takes place in the area of Racetrack Playa in Death Valley, California and continues all the time, yet no one sees. Geologists have tried to trace 30 stones weighing up to 25 kilograms and found that 28 of them in seven years have moved more than 200 meters. They were also able to calculate the speed of the stones and the time of year when the stones moved more actively. It turned out that they mostly moved in the winter and the speed of such movement was about 1 meter per second. Continue reading
