Reynolds number ~15,000, using diameter of sphere as characteristic length scale. Simulation domain 256x256x256 with periodic boundary conditions along horizontal direction. Simulation time 1hr 30min on quad core CPU.

There is no lighting/shadowing at all here, just density added along z-axis to produce a 2d-image, resulting in something reminiscent of incandescent smoke.
