Although it may seem like an alien mothership, it's actually a impressive thunderstorm cloud called a supercell. Such colossal storm systems center on mesocyclones -- rotating updrafts that can span several kilometers and deliver torrential rain and high winds including tornadoes. Jagged sculptured clouds adorn the supercell's edge, while wind swept dust and rain dominate the center.
A tree waits patiently in the foreground.
The above supercell cloud was photographed in July 2010 west of Glasgow, Montana, USA, caused minor damage, and lasted several hours before moving on.

That is a cool pic, but I was hoping for a new one as this is an older one
Intercepted a amazing supercell in Wash ita, Oklahoma this afternoon. Drove from Dallas to Elk City to storm chase. This is a 14 image stitched panorama to show how large this storm was. Excellent storm!
