Eternal Thunderstorms Throughout The Year

An unsolved mystery of lightning occurred in Venezuela. A total of 40 000 flashes pierce the sky for 9 hours to 300 nights a year. For local residents, this is known as "Lightning Catatumbo" or "Lightning Catatumbo."

The natives of northwestern Venezuela has witnessed the phenomenon of "ribs" or "river of fire in the sky" has been for centuries. "I saw the first ray when he was eight years old," said Erik Quiroga, a native of the area, quoted by ABC News, August 23, 2011.

According to Alan Highton, a tour guide, this phenomenon is not found elsewhere in the world.

But something strange happened last year. For the first time, the phenomenon of lightning disappeared. In January 2010, none of the visible rays. Then, mysteriously, when the phenomenon is estimated to have been stopped, started again. This phenomenon is directly recorded by NASA satellites.

I suspect Quiroga, a change that could result from a change from El Niño to La Niña, global climate phenomenon, characterized by a remarkable ocean temperatures hot and cold in the Pacific Ocean, east of the line of Ecuador. Scientists believe that this miracle is also affected by El Nino caused a severe drought in Venezuela.

In fact, according to The Guardian, this loss of a lightning hit on stempat residents. Because the phenomenon of lightning is eternal traditionally used by sailors to navigate.
