Despite the fact that school textbooks are very simply and clearly explains what constitutes the cloud and mist, in fact these drip education hide from us still a lot of mysteries, why there was even a reasonable theory about the clouds.

With one of these mysteries in the nineteenth century faced British self-educated scientist James glacier. Being fond of meteorology and Aeronautics, balloons and balloons, he in 1862 was first faced with a strange phenomenon: at an altitude of four kilometers in the clouds over England, he heard music.

Known and such an unusual case: in 1997, on Ross island in Antarctica explorers during a dense fog, heard the noise of a passing train, and the friction of the wheels and the distinctive tapping of the rails it was so crisp and clear that even made the researchers mystical fear.
