Stormscapes – A time lapse of storm clouds & mesocyclones

Watch more with these video collections:

Shot in Wyoming and South Dakota by photographer Nicolaus Wegner in the summer of 2013, this video for National Geographic is an incredible look into the thunderstorms and mesocyclones — powerful vortexes of air within thunderstorms, creating a supercell — that roll across the northern Great Plains.

In the archives: make a cloud in a bottle, learn cloud names, watch lightning captured at 7,207 images per second, and watch more storms.
