360 Fireball

Flames are inherently fascinating to watch. Most of the ones we see regularly, like candle flames and campfires, tend to flicker unsteadily due to their turbulence. But larger fires have a spell-binding nature all their own, one that’s highlighted in slow motion. Here the Slow Mo Guys take flame-gazing to a new level by circling a fireball with a high-speed camera. In the resulting footage, you can admire the incredible expansion of the flame front, and the beautiful, detailed turbulence that creates all the myriad tiny eddies you see in the slow motion. It’s well worth watching more than once! (Video and image credit: The Slow Mo Guys)
