Frozen methane bubbles, Canada

Lake-Abraham-frozen-methane-bubbles-in-Canada.

This lake in Canada is full of frozen methane bubbles.

Pockets of gas get trapped underwater and turn into ice, forming a spectacular landscape.

This strange occurrence is normally found in places like Lake Abraham in Canada.

It happens when objects like dead leaves and grass fall into the water, sink, and are eaten by bacteria that produce methane.

The gas is released as bubbles that transform into tens of thousands of icy white disks when they come into contact with frozen water.

It might look beautiful but this greenhouse gas not only warms the planet, but it is also highly flammable.

What other amazing things are there?

Stay tuned…….
