The Majestic Supercell
First Alma Nocturnal
[Part 1 of 2] A wide-angle view of the southern Nebraska night reveals a strangely sculpted supercell, its ambient anvil region festooned with an encircling moat of radial high-cloud textures. This was the first of two magnificently constructed nighttime supercells to roll eastward just to our N on this uniquely special occasion for nocturnal storm observing. Its otherworldly, big-wave appearance thoroughly enchanted us! Check out another selection from this storm in the Night Lightning gallery.
