Time-Lapse Video of This Insane Supercell Cloud Forming Over Wyoming Last Weekend

On May 18th, a large storm rolled through Wyoming, bring with it some crazy cloud formations. Supercells like the one in the picture above are the rarest type of thunderstorm.

They are formed when there is a wind shear, which occurs when there are significant differences in the speed and direction of the wind on the ground and the wind in the atmosphere about 20,000 feet up.

The video below was captured by the Basehunters, a group of storm-chasers based out of Norman, Oklahoma.
