Our planet is a pretty amazing place. Unfortunately, we probably won't live long enough to see a vast majority of its wonders; however, thanks to the internet, you can get a small sample of some of the amazing phenomena that occur on Earth. For example, take fire rainbows. As the name implies, these events take the form of clouds that seem to have been set on fire...with rainbows. Ultimately, the clouds display these stunning colors because of water droplets that happen to be nearly uniform in size. As a result, the clouds refract light in a similar manner.
See an example of this event, and 8 other stunning phenomena, in the below graphic. Or learn more about fire rainbows in this article. Read about volcanic lightening here. You can see a supercell forming in this piece. And hear about brinicles in the article found here.
