Surreal Undulatus Asperatus Sunset Over North Dakota in Video

Look at thee crazy undulatus asperatus clouds at sunset.

They are rolling in the sky like waves from out-of-this-world.

This video was filmed by Mike Olbinski, who explains:

All spring I chase storms across the United States to collect footage of supercells, lightning, tornadoes and whatever I might find. Generally I don’t release any time-lapse clips from those chases until I put out my final end of season compilation film. But last night in North Dakota was too unreal to let sit on my hard drive for months.

We were chasing northeast of Bismarck, North Dakota and as storms were dying out, we decided to go for a lone cell on the backside of a line of storms. We knew it had a hail core on it and we were hoping that we might get some nice sunset color at least on the storm as it moved past us, and hopefully some lightning bolts. But we had no idea what we were about to encounter. The clouds were taking on a very different, curvy, wave-like appearance and suddenly we knew what we were seeing.

Undulatus asperatus clouds are a rare phenomenon and actually the newest named cloud type in over 60 years. I’ve seen tons of photos of them, but never anything like what we witnessed last night. We had a storm with hail in front of us and flashing lightning which was fantastic. But then we had this layer of undulatus clouds flowing across our view. Watching them was amazing already, but then the sun slowly appeared from behind some clouds to the west and lit up our storm like nothing we’ve ever seen before. We were like kids in a candy store. Running around, doing our best to capture it from every possible angle.

I did two time-lapses…one on the right side with a 50mm and then a wide angle with the 11mm. The colors here are real. I only increased the contrast. In fact, I was thinking of actually REDUCING the saturation because of how intense the colors looked with the contrast added. But that’s how it was and I left it that way. Six of us were there and all our photo and videos look the same.

This was undoubtedly one of the most incredible scenes I’ve witnessed chasing storms for the past 8 years.

  1. Hope you are all ready to meet the father in Heaven?Repent from all sin in your life please.The Judge wants all to be saved but not all will.

    • Vast majority will not. I found it very frightening how much human mentallity changed since August and September 2015 – blood moon dates and estimated release of antichrist, hell and false messiah. It is still hard to belive me how many people were possessed or spiritually changed their sides in this long celesial war. Today materialism has power like never before. More and more people, including many of my former friends are now able to reject all remains of honor, dignity and humiliate themselves only for gaining money, even if absurdly low. Yet 10-15 years ago there were so many topics to talk about, so many ideas, fun etc, now they are able only to talk about work and money, nothing more. Last remains of friendships and solidarity just disappeared. Frightening amout of marriages divorced among my familiars (50%!) and this amount is still rising. New marriages are now almost all just for sex and money. Divorces, changing partners like socks and boasting of it became fashion. It looks like literally hell would showing up and coming here. And remember that hell is not volcanic area full of lava, sulphur and devils. It is toxic, gray, extremely sad and depressive disgusting world without colours, without values, without spirit, without magic, where is only work, exploitation, depression, materialistic madness and sexual perversions. Our modern world…

    • Yes it is. War between heaven and hell, spirit and matter continues. But how close we are to the end, nobody knows… There is so much dimensions (parallel realities) to rise up higher. And the speed of action and changes is very variable.
