[VIDEO] – Iceland waterfall : Water flows backwards.


A trending video surfaced online which features a waterfall in Ireland that appears to flow backwards.

The rare sight was captured by a group of friends who were hiking to the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland recently. The waterfall seems to defy the laws of physics but scientists say there is a simple explanation for the phenomenon.

Scientists said the winds on the west coast of Ireland are strong enough to sometimes push the water against its natural trajectory, thus making it look like a freakish backflow.

The footage taken by Garry McNabb shows a waterfall spraying back up onto the hills. Strong winds seem to be the reason for the backflow as the bustling sound gets captured by the microphone.
