That's awesum. One of the things a lot of people have trouble comprehending is the fact that you can only see what is condensed. There usually (probably always) is greater outer circulation of the tornado which isn't condensed. I've seen tornadoes where the vortex wasn't fully condensed, yet the ground circulation was causing reasonable damage, people didn't realise it was a tornado and weren't seeking shelter.

Look closely at the video, you can see the edge of the outer circulation.
