I hope that after my short review you’ll be eager to visit some of these magnificent places.

Origin: The older hypothesis is that it lies in a true rift zone, an extension of the Red Sea Rift, or even of the Great Rift Valley of eastern Africa. A more recent hypothesis is that the Dead Sea basin is a consequence of a «step-over» discontinuity along the Dead Sea Transform. Wildlife: Many animal species live in the mountains surrounding the Dead Sea: camels, ibex, hares, hyraxes, jackals, foxes, and even leopards. Hundreds of bird species inhabit the zone as well. The delta of the Jordan river was a jungle of papyrus and palm trees. The Natural Wonders of the World Western Asia

  • Slide 12 - Moscow, 2010 Uniqueness: It is a beautiful, dynamic display of shifting colored lights. The northern lights are called the Aurora borealis, and the display in the southern latitudes is called the Aurora australis. Location: Auroras occur in the part of the upper atmosphere, and can be seen in the high latitudes of the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Area: No specific or consistent measurements. Aurora The Natural Wonders of the World The South and North Poles Origin: Aurora displays are the result of electrical particles flowing out from the Sun. These particles pass through the Earth's magnetic field, and collide with atoms in the upper atmosphere causing them to emit electromagnetic radiation in the visible portion of the spectrum. The colors of the aurora depend on the altitude at which the atomic collisions occur and the type of atoms that are struck. If oxygen atoms are hit, the glow may be red or yellow-green; if the particles strike nitrogen atoms, blue or purple lights result.
