A preview of the coming apocalypse.

Want to relive that scene in the last episode of True Detective where Matthew McConaughey, lost in a psychopath’s occult labyrinth, hallucinates a great funneling storm cloud? Then go log into your parents’ HBO Go account, because this Wyoming supercell is the real deal.

A Basehunters crew driving from the town of Wright to Newcastle filmed the eye-popping structure as it spiraled into being, and their time-lapse video is nothing short of gobsmacking.

Wouldn’t it be great if the end of the world looked like this? Then Bill Nye and evangelical climate change deniers could both be right.
