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,

video
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.
