Something cool, but hot!

This popped up on Youtube and made the ABC World News broadcast tonight:

I don't know about you, but if I were an ignorant barbarian without a science education, this would simply terrify me.  As it is, there is something primal and savage about it, and this kind of exemplifies the phrase "force of nature"!  It isn't big, but it is nasty looking!

Apparently, these occur in Australia occasionally, in their Outback, and usually last only a few minutes.  This one lasted for over forty minutes!

It is fascinating, isn't it?
