There was a peculiar storm that occurred last night. Early in the evening before the sun set you could see an arched shadow that appeared from the
top of the approaching storm and continued all the way to the other horizon, roughly west to east.
Later after the sun set, the storm neared you could see the same type of perfect arc, from horizon to horizon. Again west to east, only this time,
formed in the clouds themselves. When the arc was just overhead, the storm pounded us. Lightning bolts every second until it passed, about 40
minutes. The arc appeared within normal puffy swirling storm clouds.
It's difficult to describe. If you took a photo of an approaching storm and edited it with a smudge brush, making an arc across the front, from
horizon to horizon you would have a good idea of what I saw.
I've never seen anything like this before and I'm somewhat of a storm watcher/sky watcher. Has anyone else seen anything like this before?
