APOD: A Supercell Storm Cloud Forming over Wyoming (2014 May 21) Video Credit: Basehunters (BasehuntersChasing) Music: Empire (Shakira) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140521.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoO89cqDgJU Explanation: How do supercell storm clouds form? Pictured above is a time-lapse video taken last Sunday detailing the formation of one such violent supercell in eastern Wyoming, USA. Starting as part of a large and dark thunderstorm complex, the supercell comes together along with a large rotating updraft of air known as a mesocyclone. Mesocyclones form during rapid changes in wind speed and direction with height and can produce torrential rain, damaging hail, swirling winds, and sometimes tornadoes. Storm watchers are seen studying, imaging, and ultimately running from the developing storm cloud during the video. During the middle part of the video, the kilometer-wide supercell can be seen swirling ominously with a nearly flat bottom. Toward the end of the video, another swirling supercell cloud forms but then quickly dissipates. http://www.facebook.com/basehunters http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqAWcfd0BJBgCW8iyOLOF3g http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_(Shakira_song) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shakira Starship Asterisk* Poll: Have you seen this video before? http://asterisk.apod.com/viewtopic.php?t=33429 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140521 #APOD
