These Dramatic Pictures,

were taken a couple of days ago,

while helicopter pilot Andrew Park was flying over Phoenix this week, photographer Jerry Ferguson captured what appears to be a giant foreboding mushroom cloud hanging over the city,

Ferguson captured the sight while filming the weather for a local TV station, the effect is called a microburst, which is caused by a downdraft when it begins its descent from a cloud base,

even more amazing is this timelapse video by Bryan Snider showing the same microburst from Phoenix’s Sky Harbour International Airport, the camera positioned at what looks like just a couple hundred feet form the centre of the storm, incredible.
