A large thunderstorm in the Alice Springs area on Saturday blanketed the area in hail not big enough to cause any damage.
But the contrast between the red earth and the white hail was a stunning spectacle of nature.
In a bizarre but beautiful sight the Red Centre turned white on Saturday following a thunderstorm which blanketed the area in a sheet of hail.
‘This event was set apart due to the fact it was a slow moving storm.
Although hail is present in most storms it has often melted by the time it meets the ground.
As the hailstones were only marble-sized they weren’t large enough to cause any damage.
But they did provide quite a sight for locals, many of whom have never seen hail despite living in the area for years.
