This rare phenomenon captured by photographers at the Grand Canyon is a must-see.

The Grand Canyon is already one of the natural marvels of the world. But add a rare natural phenonmenon to the mix, and what you get is a truly stunning experience, now captured on video.

“Full cloud inversion” happens when cold air is trapped in the canyon by a layer of warm air on top of it. Add moisture and condensation, and it looks as if clouds form within the canyon itself, creating a low-lying blanket of thick white clouds. To the viewer, it looks as if you’re walking on clouds on earth.

Filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic and Gavin Heffernan captured this phenomenon, which happens only every few years, according to the National Weather Service.

Harun and Gavin were filming as part of the Skyglow Project, who are working with the International Dark-Sky Association to document urban light pollution in the U.S.

See this remarkable video below — it’s not the same thing as being there in person, but this ‘sea of clouds’ is nevertheless stunning to watch, anyway…
