A rarity on the island of Funen

It is beautiful, the Danish summer landscape, as it meanders under the sun and through the colors and tells about the year that goes. Also in august, when the full-fat fields are harvested.

on Monday it was Stine Hein Boysen from Brobyværk in the right place at the right time to capture something special. Just harvest relieved the funen landscape in the pirouettes, and was recorded on video by Stine's cell phone. You can see the fine moment in the video above the article.

the Phenomenon has, however, its scientific name and explanation. What Stine was witness to, was a so-called høtyv, also called djævlestøv. It is a relatively rare phenomenon that can occur on sunny summer days without much wind. Høtyven is in the family with skypumpen and the tornado, but are usually completely harmless. Most often it is namely the newly harvested hay or straw, which is sucked up, swirled around and spread, which has given høtyven its name.

Høtyvene is formed when the air near the surface is heated, and rapidly ascends. For example, the stubble fields one of those places that quickly becomes heated and can form the pitchforks.

Hills or hedgerows, can cause interference in air movement, and there can be formed small eddies, which are quite quiet. Is there a coincidence between one of these bubbles of very hot air and a small vortex, so can høtyvene occur, writes meteorologist, Anders Brandt, on

The amazing weather we have had in the month of august, create ideal conditions for høtyvene, so you may be lucky to see the beautiful whirlwind journey of the Danish sensommerlandskab.
