    Here's a video of what a horseshoe vortex looks like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24cqKFuO3cI

    Apparently the thin air and the "perfect sphere" of the ball create one of those bad boys, and the vortex causes the ball to spin around. That spin causes the ball to bend and dance in the air.
