Watch this mesmerising timelapse video of a massive low pressure storm in the US state of Wyonming. It's terrifying and beautiful!WATCH

Cape Town - No, this is not a scene from some sci-fi thriller of fantasy film. It is in fact a 100% real timelapse video of a massive supercell thunderstorm moving across the sky in the US state of Wyoming. 

Slate reports that a group of stormchasers who call themselves Basehunters, captured the flying-saucer-shaped cloud on camera and transformed it into a completely mesmerising timelapse video.

Watch the video here.

It's terrifying and beautiful all at once and does a pretty good job of making one realise just how very small we all are. 

This unreal-looking storm would definitely make our list of 'natural phenomena you won't believe are real.'   Come join our travel community! Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, snap away on Instagram, hang out with us on Google+ and share your inspiration on Pinterest
