This is both really cool and really frightening




A phenomenal shot of a massive cloud Sunday near Clareton, Wyo., has been making the rounds on social media today.

The photo was taken by the Basehunters storm chasers group, who are "committed to capturing the most unique and close-up tornado footage on the market," according to their Facebook page. It shows the rotating updraft of a supercell thunderstorm over eastern Wyoming, according to Weather Channel meteorologist Jon Erdman.

Supercells are the largest, strongest and longest-lasting thunderstorms. They are most common on the Great Plains.

Known as a "low-precipitation" supercell, these types of storms seldom produce heavy rain or tornadoes, though they can produce large hail, Erdman said.


I have traveled extensively all over the United States and even abroad and I have seen my share of strange weather but nothing like this..

Semper

I'm glad the clouds where i live are normal, if i see that i would start to dig a hole to hide from the imminent tornado/wrath of god.

How stunningly beautiful. Nature is so alive and full of movement at this time on earths history, our shared history. That cloud reminds me of ice cream and I want to lick it... JK.

Everything is in flux and we will all begin to witness things we have never before even imagined. Thank you for sharing.

That would definitely cause me to "Chicken Little" in my pants.

Damn nature... You scary.


S&F as long as they keep it over there. Seeing something like that smacks you in the face with how little control you have and how very tiny we are on this planet.

Storms can create some crazy looking things. It's really amazing. I'd love to see some of these in real life.
These two were from a storm in Kansas a bit over a week ago.

I've not seen a cloud that looks like that. It looks like a cloaked UFO that came down from the atmosphere. -Not saying that's what it is...

The storm that hit my town a couple years ago was the strangest thing that I've ever seen. I watched these black-mist clouds cover the area very quickly, then came winds over 90mph. I knew the second that I saw those clouds that something was not right and I got my family to a safe place(we were in a vehicle). I had a thread about it. I'm 42 and have seen a lot of storms and crazy weather but have never seen anything like that. I've heard many other people who were there say the same thing.

I'll give you an S&F just for the headline. It reminds me of the wacky headlines from SimCity. Amazing photograph of the cloud too.

Lived in the Great Plains for about half of my life. Ive seen up to four tornados touch down at the same time. Cloud formations not unlike the one filmed and even stranger. I had the opportunity to look up into an F1 as it was forming directly overhead...the beauty is indescribable. It finally touched down about two miles away, didnt cause much damage luckily.

EPIC!

I know that super cell storms are dangerous in that they can create tornado winds and death and carnage related thereto, but I think despite that, I would love to see something like that up close. Such an awe inspiring image! I cannot imagine what it must have been like to be close to that vast twirling behemoth!

I would have been asking you for a spare pair of shorts, to be honest, haha!

Heh... if it ever comes up, you are more than welcome to my spare pair. Natural displays of the awesome fury of this planet, our world, have always filled me with more awe and wonder, than fear and despair! When the weather gets stupid down here, to the minimal degree that it ever does, while everyone around me runs for some sort of cover from the wind or rain, or snow... I am out getting a face full and loving it.

That said, I might have somewhat more concern for my physical body in the event of a tornado touch down
But big columns of cloud? Nah, that is some straight up biblical crap. I would LOVE to see that!

I actually had a bad dream once about 10 years ago where all of these pillars came down from the clouds, like the one in the photos here. But they came all the way down to the ground I think, and were mixed with magic energies or whatever, it was a dream so it didn't have to make sense.

I can't believe I just remembered that as a result of your post.
Thanks for the nightmare nostalgia!

It's a good thing I come to ATS and discover these things are normal, because if I ever saw that without knowing I'd be scared to death!
