I agree with Glacierise, Krakatoa for sure and possibley a touch of Fume.

Something to get you started:

Set you Time configuration to 600 frames
Create a standard flow, set your Particle in Viewport percentage accordingly and raise you system limit to something like 10 mil
Set the Birth Operator to 0 to 600 frames, rate of 10
Switch the Icon to Circle, make it large 500 units
Select the Position Icon and set the emission to "Edge"
Remove the speed operator and replace it with a Standard Force operator, create a Vortex space warp at 0,0,0, rotate it 180 degrees, Axial drop 0.0, Orbital Speed 4.0, Radial Pull 0.0 add it to the Force operator.
Remove the Rotation Operator
Remove the Shape operator
Add a Find Target Test, Control by Time, Docking Direction "Icon Cylindrical
Create a new Speed Operator Event, Speed 100 variation 25.0, enable reverse

thanks a lot
I have tried the values you suggested but it doesn't look good.
Can you send the scene file to my E-mail

LOL, that would be because it is just a place to start ;) Looks like a good starting point to me:)

Playing with it should have been easy to see what is going on.

This is what I got after messing with it for an hour or so. I must admit I opted to use birth paint for my initial particle seeds.

I attached the starting point that I used, which is basically what I posted earlier with a couple more operators.
