And it is truly a magnificent sight to see.

But there is something very special due to happen this month...

And it is something called a Firefall.

This natural event happens in February every year...

And it involves the setting sun to shine on the waterfall at a certain angle, giving the falls a glowing effect.

But why does it specifically happen in February?

via: Getty Images

The temperature needs to be warm enough so the water doesn't freeze over, and the sky needs to be clear... and it turns out that February is the best time for these particular conditions!

The water at Horsetail Falls doesn’t flow year-round...

Which is another reason for February being the perfect time of the year for a Firefall.

It has been predicted to last between the 12th - 28th of February this year...

And the lava-like waterfall specifically attracts millions of guests every year.

People gather specifically for the supernatural phenomenon...

And this can actually result in severe overcrowding in the national park.

It is a stunning sight to see...

This is truly a sight not to miss...

But remember, there's always next year if you do miss it! Keep scrolling to learn about what happened to the Moon, Mars, and Earth just this morning...
