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.
