Clark County, KS 04/23/14

A lone LP Supercell over a Kansas field. Our best videos & photos from Clark County, KS last night. The last one is simply stunning -- and the photo doesn't do the storm justice!

You really should click the photos to see them full-size…

Beautiful slowly rotating mesocyclone. We watched this for over half an hour.

4x speedup so the rotation of the mesocycle can be easily seen. Be sure to click the settings gear and go full-screen, so you can see it in HD!

360 view as the LP cell passed closer to us.

Absolutely stunning superimposition of the grey low level clouds and the bright white tower illuminated in the setting sun.

I saved the best for last -- the rear flank of this LP supercell was just stunning!
