An aurora sometimes referred to as polar lights or northern lights, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions.


Harbor of Rio de Janeiro

The canyon and adjacent rim are contained within Grand Canyon National Park, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Havasupai Indian Reservation and the Navajo Nation.


Great Barrier Reef



The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 1,400 miles over an area of approximately 133,000 square miles. The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland, Australia.


Mount Everest



Mount Everest, is Earth's highest mountain. Its peak is 29,029 ft above sea level. Mount Everest is in the Mahalangur Range.

Its massif includes neighbouring peaks Lhotse (27,940 ft), Nuptse (25,771 ft), and Changtse (24,870 ft).


Paricutin



Parícutin (or Volcán de Parícutin) is a scoria-cone volcano located in the Mexican state of Michoacán, near the city of Uruapan. The volcano surged suddenly from the cornfield of local farmer Dionisio Pulido in 1943, attracting both popular and scientific attention.


Victoria Falls



Victoria Falls is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls is classified as the largest, based on its combined width of 5,604 ft and height of 354 ft, resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls.
