    I just love how every drop of water goes tangentially as well as radially outwards. Maybe same things happen in galaxy too.

    A suggestion is to do this against a black backdrop, with back lighting.

    Some flat earth dinguses use this video to prove people would fly off the earth if it was actually a spinning ball. Truly a special kind of stupid.

    Looks like multi-colored hurricanes, with the ball being the eye and the water being like all the rain.

    This is amazing when I first looked at it I was puzzled . It looks like the waters leaving the ball and spiraling of and not going tangential which would imply it still has a centripetal force acting on it which of course is not true. Its still going tangential but it looks like its spiraling.

    Mount the ball on a drill, soak it in kerosine and spin it while it's burning. It would look exactly like a sun with a galaxy spinning out from it.
    Edit: And then he pulled out a gas can at the end. Great minds...
