If you are from Oklahoma then you must be familiar with Tornadoes. The amazingly unexpected weather of Oklahoma changes from minute to minute and no one can predict about weather’s condition even after five minutes.

After reading the title and above lines you must have realized about today’s topic. Our world is blessed with four different weathers i-e Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter but many other amazing and interesting phenomenons occurred due to different latitudes and mixed weather conditions like tornadoes, biological rains (Rain of fish) and many others . Let us explore some of them.

Halo is an amazing optical phenomenon formed near the sun or moon in very cold weather. It is formed by the ice crystals that used to float around them. There are many types of these halos that depends upon the formation of crystals. Reflection and refraction of light through these ice crystals form these amazing shapes.

Aurora is another amazing phenomenon that is often occurred in the high latitude regions. When energetic charged particles collide with the atoms they form these amazing lights. This phenomenon usually occurred in Northern and Southern Latitude. One that occurred in Northern latitude is known as Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights while the other one is known as Aurora Australis or Southern Lights.

    A simple mistake in the line “Aurora is another amazing phenomenon that is often occurred in the high altitude regions”. it is “high latitude” instead of “high altitude”
