Here in Illinois, we experience some crazy weather. We are fortunate that we don't see hurricanes or wildfires. However, we do see a lot of storms, tornadoes, and other severe weather.

We have a lot of farmland in Illinois. Tons of grass and open fields. But we don't have deserts like some other places. Deserts are home to a ton of dust phenomenons. One of those being "Dust Devils". When they happen in places with a ton of open space and dust, they can get pretty intense.

This one that happened near Wataga, Illinois isn't as big or intense. To me, it's more of an eerie video. The dust devil captured on video in Illinois looks like a ghost dancing in the air to me.

Maybe I'm just too far into my spooky season mood and I've got ghosts on my mind. Either way, it's bizarre to see.

So how do these dust devils form? Let's find out together.

Obviously, the dust devil that happened in Illinois isn't as large as the one in the video above, but it's still cool to learn how they work.

Check out this dust devil that did happen in Illinois that was a lot larger. Clearly, baseball diamonds are a hot spot for them.
