10 Intriguing Mysteries From The Arctic

The Monster Of Lake Iliamna

The largest body of fresh water in Alaska, Lake Iliamna, is also the place of multiple sightings of strange giant creatures. Most scientists think that the monsters might be the big sleeper sharks that can grow up to 20 ft. However, no proof of the sharks has been found and the reports of the monsters still remain


Alaska also knows meteorological phenomena. One of them is a case of the snow turning into rain even though the temperature outside is way below 0°C. Instead of the snow melting when it hits the ground, the rainwater seeps through the snowpack, pools on top of the frozen soil, and then freezes into an impenetrable shell which prevents animals from being able to come out from under the snow. Nobody can explain why it rains when it shouldn’t.
