Filmmaker Chris Tangey caught on film a once in a lifetime spectacle while scouting locations near Curtin Springs station in the Australian outback.

Tangey spotted the tornado and a nearby small fire burning. That’s when he decided to take out his camera. Once the tornado touched down on the patch of fire, it ignited. For 40 long minutes Tangey watched a rare fire tornado make its way through the brush.

He told News 7 about the experience, “It was a dance of giants in front of me. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was awe-inspiring. We saw a red tornado, a black one, a white one and then several made of pure fire. It was 50 meters at its base of fire.”

Conditions for the event seemed perfect. The area had not seen rain since April 24th of this year, and there was a build up of growth from previous seasons.

Since News 7 posted the short clip of the event on youtube on Sunday, it has received over 1 million hits. Enjoy. It’s truly incredible.
