Stunning Timelapse of Rolling Clouds Looks Like Someone Flipped the Ocean Upside Down

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 colors—“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. [Vimeo]
