14 Bizarre Mysteries That Are Hopefully Nothing More Than A Weird Coincidence.
Strange things happen all the time, but usually, they go virtually unnoticed or don't travel beyond the realm of the local nightly news. However, when you see these rare and unusual occurrences all together, you can't help but wonder if there might be some kind of weird, otherworldly forces at play. After reading this list of 15 strange events from around the world, what do you think?
#1. Waves formed in the sky over South Carolina and Georgia.
It looked like the sky and sea were reversed when these rare clouds formed over South Carolina and Georgia. They look like rolling waves, and their formation is known as "undulatus asperatus," or agitated wave.
#2. Terrifying "vampire fish" fell from the sky in Alaska.
Lampreys are terrifying: They can grow up to 15 inches long, and they have a round mouth filled with small, sharp teeth. Understandably, residents were scared when they began falling out of the sky, but experts think it's the work of seagulls who picked them up from the beach and decided they were finished eating them.
#3. Thousands of lobsters wash ashore in Newport Beach, California.
It looked pretty crazy, but this was actually kind of a normal occurrence: The squat lobster usually end up onshore during an El Nino when water temperatures get warm.
#4. Thousands of mussels washed into a bay in South Africa.
They may look stunning, but experts believe that the presence of these mussels might indicate a red algae bloom. Though many South Africans might have been contemplating moules and frites, experts also advised against eating them.
