Magical ‘God Light’ shines in Jiangxi
On October 12, a beautiful phenomenon appeared in the sky in Shaoxing, Zhejiang. Rays of light poured out from a gap between black clouds, and the mountains were shrouded in a layer of magnificent gold.
In many Western writings, the light passing through these clouds was called “God Light.” This element exists in many religions and artwork; it has religious connotations showing the beauty of God coming to the earth.
However, according to today’s experts, this is a phenomenon of light scattering known as the Tyndall effect. This phenomenon occurs very rarely. But when it appears, it is also a sign of air pollution.
Experts point out that the occurrence of the Tyndall phenomenon needs to meet “sufficient and necessary conditions.” That is to have tiny particles such as sunlight, clouds, dust, and fog. Besides, only when the concentration and thickness reach a certain intensity will this phenomenon appear.
Tree-like patterns appear in the tidal flats of Qiantang River
Recently, a majestic scene appeared in the Qiantang river, one of China’s main rivers, attracting netizens’ attention.
An aerial video shows trees suddenly appearing in the tidal flats of the Qiangtang river. When the tide rises, the water seems to rush into their trunk and branches, giving the appearance of a real tree growing.
According to experts, the “tidal tree,” although called a tree, is not actually a plant but a series of tidal troughs that develop on the tidal flats. The “tide tree” is a characteristic phenomenon of intertidal terrain, and intertidal terrain is the part between the mean low tide line and the average high tide line.
Netizens have left many comments when watching this video. Everyone expressed interest in the incredible beauty of nature.
Pears shaped with Buddha faces in China
The unique pear shaped like a Buddha’s face is one of the most popular fruits in the market. Chinese farmers create and culture them.
According to Chinese media, a farmer in Hebei, Hao Xianzhang, has spent six years cultivating these Buddha-shaped pears successfully. The pears are placed into plastic molds when they are young. Once developed into an exact shape, the mold is removed, which is a meticulous and unique process.
The original price of this Buddha pear is not cheap; in 2009, they sold for $8 each. However, Chinese people still hunt this fruit because they believe it will bring good luck. They started to be exported to the European market in 2012. Today, their prices are much higher. In the Netherlands, they cost up to $34 each.
