CONVECTION: DROPPING JAR WITH LIT CANDLE-SEQUENCE<br />
Candle Flame Extinguished At The  End of Fall<br />
(3 of 3 - Variations Available)<br />
When the falling jar is caught, the inertia of the falling air causes it to rush to the bottom of the jar.  The sudden rush of air cools & extinguishes the flame.
