Grand Canyon transforms into a sea of cloud

A NATURAL phenomenon has turned one of the seven natural wonders of the world - the Grand Canyon - into a mesmerising sea of white cloud.

The Grand Canyon National Park Service shared footage of the phenomenon sweeping across the stunning landscape on its Twitter page.

In the video, the white clouds build up from the Colorado River at the bottom of the Canyon and break against the famous cliffs like waves on a shore.

The video had nearly 3,300 likes and 1,800 retweets at the time of writing.

The phenomenon is known as a full cloud inversion and occurs when cold air meets warm air from above and only occurs every few years.

The Grand Canyon is one of the most visited places in the world with the historic site luring almost 5 million tourists every year.
