Murmuration
2. AKA Flocking, sort sol (black sun) What is it? The amassing and movement of a large flock of roosting starlings; murmurations occur just before dusk, autumn and winter. Where? Murmurations seem particular to the common starling (Sturnus vulgaris). The birds like to roost in sheltered spots such as woods and reedbeds, though are happy in urban settings too. A murmuration is a like an avian aurora. The birds perhaps 100,000 of them twist and billow as the lights do, creating ever shifting shapes; they swirl like smoke, explode in blooms and plummet like waterfalls. Each bird somehow reacts to those around it, so the flock flurries as one. The UK is a prime spot good locations include Gretna Green, Leighton Moss in Lancashire, Saltholme near Middlesbrough and the Somerset Levels. The latter has an RSPB Starling Hotline (07866 554 142) so you can get up to date info on the most likely roost sites.

The Arctic and Antarctic circles; the darkness length increases closer to the poles. Sounds depressing? Polar night isn t as gloomy as it sounds. The pink golden dusk light that does put in an appearance is cheery and cherished. Plus, the snowy landscapes reflect any rays, so the world feels that bit brighter. This is the time to hit the Arctic for winter high jinks husky sledding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and general admiration of the icy north. The Svalbard darkness lasts from 14 November to 29 January ideal for moonlit snowmobile forays, scouring for stars and drinking in the camaraderie at Longyearbyen s bars. Similar activities are on offer across Lapland, plus ski runs are illuminated and restaurants flicker with candles. Whalewatchers should visit Norway s Andfjord, where pods of orca along with humpback, fin and sperm whales feed on herring during winter. .....
Northern lights
5. AKA Aurora borealis, revontulet (fox fires), kinguyakkii What is it? Light display caused by charged, fast moving particles from the sun entering the earth s atmosphere. Where? Particles are driven towards the poles by the earth s magnetic field, so northern lights are more prevalent above the Arctic Circle; however, displays are seen further south.

But if you head to the far north, between September and March, for several nights, you might see the heavens erupt in a fantasia of swirling yellow purple green. Good spots include Sweden s Abisko Sky Station (renowned for cloudlessness); the Northern Lights Centre at Whitehorse, in Canada s Yukon; and Finnish Lapland, where it s estimated there are around 200 auroral displays a year. .....
Bioluminescence
6. AKA Bio, bioluminiscencia What is it? Light produced by a chemical reaction within living organisms such as glowworms and fireflies causing them to glow or flash. But in certain marine environments, plankton called dinoflagellates emit a bluish flicker when agitated nature s prettiest defence mechanism, creating the feeling that you ve paddled into liquid light. Where? Those tiny dinoflagellates like unpolluted saltwater lagoons with little tidal exchange with the ocean; in the tropics, hotspots are usually fringed by mangroves. Plunging a paddle through bio producing waters is like being a wizard with a wand. A stroke sees the sea ignite; flick the oar and gleaming droplets scatter like fairy dust. Magic. There aren t many places were this showy plankton thrives. The Caribbean has several Puerto Rico s Mosquito Bay claims to have the world s brightest bio; here, kayak and electric boat trips head out after dark. Jamaica and St Croix also have bio bays for spectral paddles. Note bio glows brighter on a dark night pick a date close to new moon. .....

Tornadoes can occur anywhere though are most common in mid latitudes, as storms form where cold polar and warm tropical air meet. The USA is twister central, annually recording the most (1,000 plus a year) and the most violent. First, safety warning storms should not be chased by the inexperienced.

Geysers are found where the right geological conditions combine subterranean hot rocks, ample groundwater and a vent to the surface. Most occur in the USA, Russia, Chile, New Zealand and Iceland. Visiting geyser territory is almost like space travel the landscapes where they occur are usually steaming, sulphurous and strange, painted odd colours and whiffing of egg. They are a rare and fickle phenomena; of the 1,000 plus that exist, many don t erupt regularly; some might only spew once a year, or once a decade, or cease to blow altogether. That s what makes Yellowstone s Old Faithful such a draw it reliably explodes 55m high every 60 to 110 minutes. But the park has other, less crowded spouters the Geyser Hill Loop walk passes 30, plus fumaroles and hot springs. Iceland is the rightful home of the geyser the term comes from the Icelandic geysa (?to gush ).
