    Thumbs Up Wow

    Sorry if a repost but i saw these and thought they were worth a post. Amazing!

    enormous 'supercell' cloud

    It looks like something from the film Independence Day.
    But although it may seem like an alien mothership, this incredible picture is actually an impressive thunderstorm cloud known as a supercell.
    Windswept dust and rain dominate the storm's centre while rings of jagged clouds surround the edge.

    A flimsy tree in the foreground looks like a toy next to the magnificent natural phenomenon

    The truth is more like Independence day took inspiration from such pictures and events.

    Apparently the spaceship scene in Close Encounters was inspired by the view from a hill above LA (or similar sized city in the US), but upside down.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
