Night Storm on the Platte River

Nebraska has treated us well weatherwise and otherwise in 2017, despite missing out on springtime storm-intercept opportunities there. A March trip to see the sandhill crane migration dazzled us with the experience of seeing a huge flock of them flying through a rainbow (along with snow geese, too!). Just a couple hours before this, we watched a marvelous supercellular sunset -- unexpected and uncommon in August. The intended purpose for this trip was the total solar eclipse two days later, which crossed Nebraska, an which we viewed from a few miles past the Wyoming border. The weather of this evening simply served as a delicious bonus! This elevated storm cluster formed well south of the complex that evolved from the supercell, but eventually merged with it. In the meantime, it offered a marvelously sinewy cloudscape, punctuated by frequent and loopy lightning filaments darting out of the cloud base, then back up again.
