Weird sand geyser in Saudi Arabia

by Dr. Eowyn

This video of a what appears to be a sand geyser in Saudi Arabia was taken 7 years ago, but is only now going viral because of sites like Forbidden Knowledge.

Here's an account by Chuck Ness of News Blaze in 2011:

 The video [...] was filmed by a driver who stopped along the freeway with many others just outside Al-Ahsa City, in Saudi Arabia. Throughout the last few years there have been many theories put forth as to what caused this phenomenon. Along with those theories, various names have been used to describe it, like "Sand Geyser," "Sand Fountain," "Sand Volcano," and "Sand Injectites." The quality of the video is not the best because it was filmed with a cell phone, and the person who filmed it has not ever identified himself. However, the video is good enough to show that something very powerful was taking place in the desert that day.

The video was taken in 2006, but to this day there is very limited information about what exactly happened to create such a spectacular eruption. Try as I have, I could not find any information about the phenomenon that would bring me any closer to understanding what happened that day. So after 5 years it seems that whatever took place is still a mystery.

What I did learn about the phenomenon was that there was no seismic activity recorded at the time, and witnesses reported that no water or oil mixed in the sand. There was also no evidence of a natural gas leak, as many of the people standing around were smoking and no fires erupted. Adding to the mystery is that there have been no reports of another such event happening anywhere in the world since.

At the time, it was reported that the Saudi government sent out scientists and geological experts from the state-run Aramco Oil Company to investigate the phenomenon. However, after 5 years they have yet to release their findings to the public. [...]
