Giant Smoke Rings

Mt. Etna (Italy), Europe's most active volcano, is known for periodically belching forth lots (up to 100 per day) of gigantic (up to 600 feet in diameter) long-lasting (up to 15 minutes) smoke rings that billow skyward (up to 18,000 feet). Top Men at Wohba have sorted through the droves of images and movies at Stromboli and provide links to the best.
