Human Catherine Wheel In Slow Motion

Josh Welch

Human Catherine WheelA Catherine Wheel is a firework that revolves around a center pin, making a pinwheel of fire.

A Human Catherine Wheel is a bundle of steel wool tied to a wire and set on fire while a brave participant holds the end of the wire and spins it around.

The Slow Mo Guys decided to make one of these Human Catherine Wheels and film the results with their Phantom Flex 4K camera at 1000fps.

The results are absolutely beautiful! Trying this one at home could be disastrous, so don't say you weren't warned.
