Sorcery: Guy Produces Black Fire That Casts A Shadow

November 14, 2018

This is a video of Youtuber The Action Lab producing a black fire that casts a shadow by exposing an alcohol flame to salt water that's all being illuminated by a low pressure sodium lamp that only emits light in a very tiny wavelength range of monochromatic yellow. *breathing heavy* It works because the sodium atoms being released from the salt water absorb the wavelength of yellow light from the lamp, making the fire appear black. Of course, using the scientific method, we also can't rule out the possibility of black magic. Which is of course 100% what this is, since it is a black flame and all. I've seen Hocus Pocus before.

Keep going for the video, actual black flame around 4:00.

Thanks to Damien, who agrees this would have been much more valuable information three years ago when I was an evil wizard for Halloween.

    i'm glad there was an explanation of the science rather than just a 20 second video with a black fire shadow…

    Soon to be a feature in evil lairs around the world by super villains.

    I mean, no, not really? Very unsafe. There's nothng we super villains (who even calls themselves that? We're just villains, not Chuunibyou) hate more than health and safety violations. We may conduct evil, but we do it safely. Hard to reasonably explain why you have several missing limbs, chemical burns or other business associated injuries. Evil must remain in the shadows to thrive.

    Man... This guy make really interesting stuff but he's more annoying than the ole backdoor scientesticle.

    Black Fires use Matter.
