The raging storm on Jupiter
Aptly nicknamed as Jupiter's "Great Red Spot", it's a storm which can be literally called a 'planet eater' because of its epic size. The Great Red Spot is over two times the size of earth itself and reaches speeds of 270 mph!

No one could have anticipated the devastating impact of Mount Vesuvius's violent eruption which happened without any warning. The heat was so violent that it instantly carbonized objects and reduced people to skeletons, this poor soldier didn't even have the time to run.

A knockout punch can send even the most intimidating of opponents flying to the floor, hissing in pain and grasping for breath. But it's not all smooth sailing for the winner either - a powerful punch can definitely takes its toll on their palm.

Helicopter making waves
The wings on a helicopter generates enormous amounts of energies, enough to send lighter objects hurling at breakneck speeds, and in this case, its enough to create these concentric ripples on the ocean several meters away from the center.
This jellyfish combines the amazing colors of blue and a tinge of orange beneath its frail, transparent body. Giving it the touch and feel of being an extraterrestrial life form. Given how alien the creature looks, we wouldn't be surprised if it really was one.
