Weather watchers out in Wyoming captured a wicked picture of a storm cloud. The cloud looks like it was in the movie War of the Worlds.

The Basehunters storm chasers group took the photo. It shows the rotating updraft of a super cell thunderstorm over eastern Wyoming, according to Weather Channel meteorologist Jon Erdman. What in the world is a super cell thunderstorm? It is a storm with deep rotating updrafts.

Super cell thunderstorms are largest, strongest, and longest lasting thunderstorms. They are very common in Great Plains. Known also as “low-precipitation” super cell, these types of storms produce heavy rain and tornadoes and can produce large hailstorms.

These storms are crazy! Check super cell thunderstorms on YouTube!
