No, it's not the Eye of Sauron -- but almost. This was made by an Australian guy in his driveway by rotating a 7 foot aluminum tube around a Tesla coil. The photograph is a long exposure, around 22 sec. He writes, "My wooden counterweight is on fire here at the top of the coil. It's quite safe to be in the car although my son was apprehensive. This was a hire car (as I don't own one) and it still works. I did get extra insurance 'in case.'" Click here for more photos, and more tesla coil madness Downunder!
