9 Mysterious Places That Leave Scientists Confused 🔥🔥🔥

Ever seen something and thought, "How exactly is this possible?" Yes, like when you open a bag of chips and the next second, they're gone! I get it every time… but other than that, there are some real places out there that completely baffle scientists! I mean, just look ...

# 1. Blood Falls

Blood Falls When you think of Antarctica, you probably imagine a vast land of sheer frozen whitewash. Well, as long as your eye is caught by a blood-red waterfall from the icy walls, it is a very beautiful place. 

Situated in the McMurdo dry valleys, this rust-colored liquid looks like something straight out of a horror film at Taylor Glacier. 

For a very long time, scientists could not know what was the reason behind the fall of this crisis. At first, they believed that red algae gave water their tory. But the new study found that iron oxides (or, basically, rust) are present in water.

# 2. Floating Islands

Floating Islands Islands shouldn't move, right? Psh, tell us to the mobile islands on Loktak Lake! It is the largest freshwater lake in Northeast India and is meant for floating islands called "Phumdis" which run in water during the rainy season and sink during the dry months. 

These patches of grassland contain soil vegetation and soil, which is thickened in a concrete form. And if you walk on their spongy surface, it looks like Thomas is walking on the trampoline. 

Despite the continual growth of these islands, the locals build their huts on them as most of the people in the area earn money by fishing in the lake. There is also a school with one on it and a whole national park!

# 3. Hot Door

Furious Gate What do you think, how long can someone burn a fire? Well, in the hot Karakum Desert of Turkmenistan, there is a 226-foot wide hole that has been on fire for almost 50 years! The door is not a crater volcano or anything like that - it is actually man-made. 

In 1971, an accident occurred as engineers were installing an oil-drilling rig on site. The ground under the rig fell into a wide pit that started releasing potentially toxic gases into the air. 

This is why engineers decided to set up a pit fire in the hope that the gas would burn in a few weeks. But the weeks turned into months, which then became years. 

Decades passed, and it is still burning today. And, yes, you can visit this place, so don't forget your marshmallows!

# 4. A Never-Ending Electric Storm

The never-ending lighting storm if "lightning never strikes the same place twice" is apparently a unique place in Venezuela where the Catatumbo River meets Lake Maracaibo and The memo does not. 

Here, on average, there are 270 storm days and about 1.2 million lightning bolts collide in a year. Yes, that makes it the most electric place on earth, and the energy produced in this one place by pure lightning strikes is enough to power 100 million light bulbs! Decades ago, it was believed that uranium deposition in the base was the cause of the incident. 

Later, scientists suggested methane from oil fill, which increases the conductivity in the air above the lake. 

However, they now say that this is a never-ending light show, because of the unique topography and wind patterns of the region. Whatever, I'm staying far away!

# 5. Swollen River

The Boeing River is located deep in the Peruvian Amazon, this 4-mile-long river known as Shane-Timpiska, which heats up to 196 ° F, meaning that if you don't want to be a soup There is no swimming! Hey, this has happened to wildlife, who decide to take a dip altogether ... usually, close proximity to only one volcano can make a river so hot, but the nearest one is more than 430 miles away. 

According to local legend, a giant serpent spirit called Yakumama (or "Mother of Water") heats the river. 

However, scientists believe that water seeps deep through deep lines into the Earth, is heated by underground hot springs, and eventually returns to the surface. It's kinda boring, I like the snake story better!

# 6. Split Sea

Split Sea: The devastating floods in Kerala, India last year submerged almost the entire state underwater. 

But once the flood finally ended, the locals of the coastal town of Ponnani were really surprised when they saw a narrow strip of sand, which had come out of the water along the sea and literally split the sea in two.

This sand the strip is now attracting many visitors who, despite the danger, want to walk 1,600 feet before being washed away by high tide. 

This natural phenomenon is still unclear, but some believe that sand flowing from a nearby river formed the stretch. But the state of Kerala is also famous for another mystery ...

# 7. Twin Town

Twin Town Kodinhi, a remote village in Kerala's Malappuram district, continues the puzzle of scientists as to how many twins are born there! It was estimated that there are more than 450 pairs of twins in a village where only 2,000 families live. 

While the national average of twin births does not exceed 9 in 1,000, the number in Kodinih equals 45 in 1,000. 

In 2016, a team of researchers from various institutions came to the village to explain this bizarre incident. 

They collected saliva and hair samples from twins to study their DNA but found no conclusive answers. Oh boy, I can't imagine how the people there can tell who is who!

# 8. Sleeping City

Sleeping City Talking about mysterious villages, it is the real-life and literal sleepy hollow Kalachi city of Kazakhstan. In 2013, the locals could not stop working while they slept daily. 

I mean, when I'm riding the bus or having a peaceful picnic in the park, I also pause, but these people have slap marks that can go on continuously for a few days and Can hit them right as they were walking! Over the course of time, more and more residents succumbed to this strange sleep sickness. 

People's health, city air quality, and local consumption of food and water were all analyzed in a large-scale investigation. 

Still, nothing was common on those fronts. Eventually, two years later in 2015, the big mystery was solved. Officials said oxygen levels in the city had fallen due to high concentrations of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons coming from old uranium mines nearby. 

The city embarked on a relocation program, and I'm glad they found out and provided protection to the people!

# 9. Petting Well

Petrifying Well This mysterious well is located near the river, which passes through Narsborough in North Yorkshire, UK. 

Oh yes, and its water is known to turn objects into stone! For many centuries, locals believed that the petrifying well was cursed. 

In fact, you will find a well inside a cave named the 16th-century seer and it is believed to be known as Mother Shipton because it was probably where she was born. 

Anyway, nowadays people leave different items from teddy bears to bicycle to witness this unusual change. 

But the scientists analyzed the water samples of the petrifying well, which spans a supernatural stretch around the place. 

It has been discovered that water has a high mineral content that forms a coating around objects. This coating creates a hard mineral shell that makes them look like stones. 

Basically, the same process occurs when stalactites and stalagmites are formed, which are the things of the shape of the icicles that you see hanging above in most caves. 

But it can take hundreds of years to make it, while petrification of these items only takes weeks or sometimes months depending on the size. 

And this is something science has yet to explain! Hmm, maybe this is the curse of Mother Shipton after all! Which of these places would you like to visit? Tell everyone in the comments below!
