A stunning clip emerged on the internet of a dust devil swirling at this year's Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, USA.

A dust devil is a strong, well-formed, and relatively long-lived whirlwind, ranging from small (half a meter wide and a few meters tall) to large (more than 10 meters wide and more than 1000 meters tall). The primary vertical motion is upward. Dust devils are usually harmless, but can on rare occasions grow large enough to pose a threat to both people and property.

The man who filmed this video spotted the beautiful whirlwind moving across a dry lake bed on September 2 and approached on his bicycle to capture the natural phenomenon on camera.

"I was surprised that it made no sound, it just quietly spun along sweeping up dust from the desert floor," wrote the man online.

Burning Man is an annual gathering in the western United States at Black Rock City, in which a temporary city erected in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada, approximately one hundred miles (160 km) north-northeast of Reno.

This freaking phenomenon known as dust devil looks like a small whirlwind vortex over land, visible as a column of dust and debris which is certainly very amazing to watch.
