In the municipality of Trstenik, the camera caught the "dust devil"
A not so typical video was made near Trstenik today. From the moving vehicle, the so-called dust devil was spoted.
- A little while ago, across the Morava in Ugljarevo, the so-called dust devil, a type of micro-vortex - it is stated in the description of the post on Facebook.
As meteorologist Djordje Djuric explained to the Telegraph, this is a phenomenon that is called "dust devil".
- A rare occurrence, but not uncommon. It occurs most often in the summer part of the year, when the weather is calm, when there are no stronger winds - Đurić told us.
As he adds, it is caused by a pronounced temperature difference in a small area.
- It occurs mainly where there is dust, in the fields ... That is why it is rare to see it in the city, where there is concrete - he says, noting that this phenomenon is not related to a certain geographical area.
Although he associates it with a tornado, Đurić notes that they cannot be compared, and that the "dust devil" is not dangerous.
- It has nothing to do with the tornado. It arises from the ground to the height, and not the other way around as the tornado goes - he describes.
By the way, the phenomenon is characteristic of desert and semi-arid areas, where, he says, they are much more developed. Hence, he explains, the name. It is common in Australia and the Sahara.
December 8th - Impressive light pillars recorded over Tyumen in Western Siberia
Oh, those are beautiful !!
I have seen them several times in Stockholm, too (I might even have photos of them, but have to dig deep into my archive first) They are also called "False Northern Lights". I remember one time, when I drove the subway in Stockholm, one driver was calling the Traffic Central (TLC) over the radio reporting "there are northern lights in the sky"- but those were false Northern Lights
you need special meteorological conditions for those to occur. e.g. no winds and special shaped ice crystals.
Another time I remember a winter night, putting the train into the depot, and started to walk home - the strong glare of the lights within the depot, made "a trillion miniature crystals", mini light sparkles everywhere in the air. It felt like walking through fairy dust hovering everywhere. I have only seen this a few times in the past 20 years - and it is truly enchanting, almost surreal to experience.
I was happy like a cookie 🍪
