Visitors to Yosemite National Park were treated to a dazzling firefall, a scientific phenomenon caused by very specific light conditions.

Mother Nature is putting on a show! Visitors to Yosemite National Park have been treated to firefalls in the park recently.

Every February, the setting sun draws a narrow sliver of light on Horsetail Fall, making it glow like a cascade of molten lava.

The stunning phenomenon draws scores of visitors to the spot near Horsetail Fall each year, but they have to be quick -- the sun lights up the falls for only a few minutes at dusk.
