This mass of fire spinning around at 20-plus miles per hour was captured by Chris Tangey in the Australian Outback last week. The Sun reports Tangey saying prior to this event that the weather was rather “uneventful.” That is until someone pointed the 52-year-old filmmaker’s attention to the scene behind him. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“I was about 300 metres away and there was no wind but the tornado sounded like a fighter jet. My jaw just dropped.”
“I’ve been shooting in the outback for 23 years and I have never seen anything like it. We’ve heard about them but they’re never seen.
“The whole experience was staggering and the length and variety were astonishing.”
