Undulatus Asperatus Sunset 1 min. 16 sec.
Admire the jaw-dropping gorgeousness of an Undulatus Asperatus Sunset that’s as rare as it is beautiful. This spectacular time-lapse footage was captured by photographer Mike Olbinski (previously featured here), who described it as, “…undoubtedly one of the most incredible scenes I’ve witnessed chasing storms for the past 8 years.”
“Undulatus asperatus clouds are a rare phenomenon and actually the newest named cloud type in over 60 years. I’ve seen tons of photos of them, but never anything like what we witnessed last night. We had a storm with hail in front of us and flashing lightning which was fantastic. But then we had this layer of undulatus clouds flowing across our view. Watching them was amazing already, but then the sun slowly appeared from behind some clouds to the west and lit up our storm like nothing we’ve ever seen before. We were like kids in a candy store. Running around, doing our best to capture it from every possible angle.“
