Looking like a scene from some apocalyptic Hollywood movie, a storm captured on time-lapse film over northeast Wyoming on Sunday is utterly jaw-dropping.

The video captured by Basehunters, a storm-chasing team originally based in Norman, Okla., shows a rare kind of thunderstorm known as a supercell. These storms feature a spinning updraft which, in this case, created an enormous, towering mass of clouds.

Supercell storms can produce large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, flooding, dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning, and heavy rain. In this case, the impressive storm died down without causing any significant damage.
