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 witnessed". The resulting 4K timelapse is one you're going to want to watch in fullscreen.
Video: To my eye, the clouds that aeroplane wings make on takeoff and landing look like a cool force field -- a stealth shroud that envelopes the aeroplane as its flying around. Reality is less fun though, because the clouds that are rolling over the wings of the aeroplane are caused by the lift forces that let our planes fly.
Video: The 75-story Sulafa Tower skyscraper in the Dubai Marina is so tall that it's essentially above the clouds. So this guy is not just BASE jumping off a super high balcony, he's also jumping straight into a cloud of fog below. That thick blanket of mystery basically covers the world, hiding everything that's underneath it (namely: The ground). It's especially scary because a few seconds after he jumps, he's surrounded and blinded by the fog until the ground suddenly appears.
Video: New York City is a special place. In the morning, when the city wakes up. At night, when it doesn't sleep. On the grid, in the park, next to the water, across the boroughs, in the bars, on the corners, it all adds up to the best city in the world. Here's a great view of New York City, this time from above the clouds.
Video: I know what my nightmares look like in real life now: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know what my version of hell would be: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know all this because this time lapse footage from Blue Dog Films is terrifying in the worst ways, with lightning buzzing and snapping all over the place and clouds morphing into every imaginable shape all at once.
Video: If I saw these clouds coming at me like this, I would drop everything, turn around, and start running. It's absolutely what I envision the end of the world looking like. These shelf clouds popped up and rolled into and over Bondi Beach yesterday and look absolutely terrifying. Nothing really happened but it totally looks like a tsunami made of clouds.
