Rocks Bouncing On Frozen Pond Make Most Peculiar Sounds

Nature is something that is truly amazing. If you just look around you, you can find interesting things everywhere you look. Nature is absolutely unpredictable. You can never be too sure what a single tiny movement might do to cause a shift in the whole ecosystem. You can’t predict an earthquake similar as to how you can not predict the weather. You can guess that it’s going to rain based on the ominous dark clouds, but you may never know if a wind sweeps in and blows them all away.

There are also a lot of mysterious occurrences in nature. It doesn’t mean that they are mythical or otherworldly, it just means that we haven’t got the technology available yet to understand and explain them. One such phenomenon is the sound stone skipping creates when it hits the icy pond. Now, before you think that we’re making this up, check out this footage.

There is almost never a dull moment when it comes to nature. The person in this clip here realized this and had a lot of fun with nature in the winter time! The person stands in front of a recently frozen pond with rocks all around them. They pick up one of the rocks and decide to throw in onto the frozen pond only for the unexpected to happen. The rock bounces on the pond’s surface and creates a sound that appears to be out of this world. The sound is almost like something out of a sci-fi movie! You really have to see it to believe it, or in this case, hear it to believe it!

It all has to do with how sound travels through a medium. Basically, although you might not see it, the stone skipping is breaking the icy surface of the pond, and the cracks are the reason why it sounds the way it sounds. They have often been described as the sound a laser makes or even a bird caller. Another comparison is made with the famous slinkie device. What do you think? Doesn’t this remind you of the sound a lightsaber makes during a lightsaber fight in the iconic Star Wars franchise? Whichever way it may be, there is no denying it. Nature is marvelous and nature is the greatest artist creating the most interesting sounds ever.

There are a lot of things we can’t explain to ourselves. Nature really does work in mysterious ways, combining atoms into molecules to create the most perfect specimen it wants to create. Nature truly is an artist. It creates the most intricate designs and combines the most uncommon colors making us admire it each and every time. It has mastered its craft throughout the millennia, getting better and better each time. It seems that each new attempt is a tiny bit closer to perfection.
