Stunning Timelapse Of Rolling Clouds Looks Like Someone Flipped The Ocean Upside Down

Video: He's been chasing storms for eight years, but filmmaker Mike Olbinski called this event -- a sunset that blasted a rare display of rolling undulatus asperatus clouds with an amazing lightshow of colours -- "one of the most incredible scenes [he's] witnessed". The resulting 4K timelapse is one you're going to want to watch in fullscreen.

Were you to lay on your back and watch these clouds -- captured in land-locked North Dakota -- upside down (or just flip the footage) you'd be hard pressed to distinguish them from the swelling waves of the ocean during a storm. We recommend firing up the biggest monitor you can find, putting on some trippy music, and letting the cloud-waves roll over you.
