Every now and then, Mother Nature shows us who—and what—she's all about. Several times a year, across the globe, natural phenomena take place and blow our minds. Pictures don’t do these sights justice. Trust us: you have to see them to really believe and experience them. Here, seven out-of-body experiences.
1. The Northern Lights
There is nothing more surreal than looking up in the sky and seeing an unearthly, alien green color swirl all around you. No, it’s not UFOs, it’s the Northern Lights. The good news: It’s out of this world and jaw-droppingly stunning. The bad news: It only happens in winter in really, really cold places. Here’s a handy guide on where and when to see the Aurora Borealis in all its splendor.
2. The Monarch butterfly migration
The iconic Monarch butterfly is just like me—it can’t stand the cold. So every fall, masses of the majestic insects migrate 2,500 miles from California to the Oyamel fir trees of Mexico. Check out migration watch sites and areas like Montes Azules in the late fall and winter for the best results.
