This Wet Microburst Is Like The Sky Turning On A Giant Faucet

According to the greatest Internet resource, a wet microburst is a “small-scaled downburst” that is “accompanied by significant precipitation”. I think that’s underselling it a bit because man, this wet microburst that popped off in Tucson, Arizona basically looks like the sky decided to drop all of its rain at one damn time, like a faucet turning on and never shutting off until it smashes everything underneath.

I Can Watch The Clouds Do Crazy Magical Things Forever

Video: Like, wow. Because so many of us are pummelled by light pollution and the daily grind of living in a city away from the clouds up in the sky, we rarely get to see it take the shape of different monsters and beings and creatures. Here’s a short video from Mike Olbinski called The Chase that reveals the clouds for what they are, magic that blankets the sky.

Watching Patagonia's Sky Fill Up With Clouds Is So Beautifully Ominous

Video: This whole timelapse video, Patagonia 8K by Timestorm Films, is totally worth watching in its entirety just to see the landscapes of southern Chile and Argentina, but I especially enjoy the clip right above where the scattered clouds dance and merge together to form a dense layer that completely blocks out the sky. You know it’s coming down after that.

Stunning Timelapse Video Of The Sky Reveals Its Staggering Beauty

This timelapse video, Edge of Stability by Jeff Boyce, is fantastic. It captures the ferocity of the clouds, the sky and the phenomenons that happen up there, and it’s just stunning. Taken across 15 US states and Canada, some of the shots look absolutely unreal.

Seeing Fog Trickle Down A Cliff Is Like Watching A Waterfall Of Ghosts

Video: I can’t decide what I think this stream of fog looks like more. Is it a waterfall of ghosts diving off a cliff? A river of angels crossing dimensions? A giant snake made of clouds creeping on the Earth? Because the simple explanation of fog trickling down a waterfall isn’t supernatural enough for me. It’s a beautiful phenomenon, for sure, but it must be the work of some entity from another world.

Snowboarding The Clouds Is So Much Cooler Than Normal Snowboarding

If there is no snow to snowboard it only makes sense to hook yourself onto a helicopter and take your snowboarding to the clouds. Watch as stuntman Wildman Adrian Cenni carves on clouds 1800m in the air while the helicopter flings him around at 130km/h. It looks so sick. Like a human Silver Surfer or something.

How This Artist Uses A Climate-Controlled Room To Make Indoor Clouds

It starts like a fog machine, deploying its vaporous mist into the air — until the cloud it emits holds its exquisite shape and silently hovers mid-room for hours. This is the drama and allure of Nimbus, the physics-defying work of Dutch sculptor Berndnaut Smilde.

13 Years Of Cloud-Watching Makes A Beautiful Visual Of The Earth

This beautiful map shows an average of all of the available cloud observations from the Aqua satellite. The shades of blue represent the cloudiness of our planet.

This Sunset Makes It Look Like The Apocalypse Is Here

Video: Welcome to our post-apocalyptic world. You can find the last remaining civilisation in San Francisco. Or something like that. It’s startling how much this simple time lapse of a San Francisco sunset makes it look like nuclear bombs have gone off and destroyed everything we know. But, nope, just a normal sunset in the bay.

The Best Of Cloud-To-Butt, The Only Extension You'll Ever Truly Need

Back in August we happened upon what quickly became our favourite browser extension: Cloud to Butt Plus. And now that we’ve had a good six months to live in a world where every instance of “cloud” on the internet is replaced with the word “butt”, we’ve amassed quite a collection of clippings. It is glorious to behold.
