Wonder: n. surprised and admired frequently because a subset(s) is very (large and/or strange) and/or (beautiful and/or unexpected) and/or is unexplained
I was filled with wonder when I first saw the Grand Canyon in person. Surprised by how large, beautiful, unusual, and seemingly inexplicable or unexplained this miraculous example of nature was. Viewing Hubble telescope pictures of the stars is also a wonderous experience filled with large, strange, beautiful, unexpected, and certainly unexplained phenomenon. These two examples are a truly admirable experience of how powerful nature is. Other humans may have also felt wonder in their lives for lesser things like very big waterfalls and majestic mountains.
When humans say “What a wonderful day!”, this is just another word for great day or exceptional day and is not true wonder in the full sense or meaning of the word.
