I've read of this practice in days of yore. Video here. I'd have backed up farther, tho. I count the anvil as aloft for seven seconds which, using Newton's Law, means it rose over 200 feet.
Too Cool. Thanks for posting this; don't know where I'd ever have heard of it otherwise.

We do this nearly every year at Boomershoot. It is a great crowd pleaser.
