This video was filmed by a driver who stopped along the freeway with many others just outside Al-Ahsa City, in Saudi Arabia. What you are about to see has been called many things, including a “Sand Geyser”, “Sand Fountain”, or a “Sand Volcano”.

The quality is not the best, because it was filmed with a cell phone but it’s good enough to let you know that something very powerful is underfoot in the desert. There are plenty of speculative ideas, but as of yet nothing has been agreed upon even by the experts outside of Saudi Arabia.

Any geologists, out there who want to take a shot at explaining what in the world is happening in this footage?
