This Thunderstorm Time Lapse Is the Most Frightening Thing

I know what my nightmares look like in real life now: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know what my version of hell would be: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know all this because this time lapse footage from Blue Dog Films is terrifying in the worst ways with lightning buzzing and snapping…

Astronauts Spot Another "Rare" Red Sprite Already!  Astronauts Spot Another "Rare" Red Sprite Already! 

After years of describing red sprites as “rare” and “elusive,” astronauts on the International Space Station are out to prove me wrong. They photographed two entirely unrelated sprites above thunderstorms in the Midwest and Mexico within minutes. What’s going on?!

Two Hours of Thunderstorm Siege Made Budapest an Electrifying City Two Hours of Thunderstorm Siege Made Budapest an Electrifying City

Hungarian photographer Zoltán Vanik captured this stunning panoramic image of Budapest, lit by dozens of lightning bolts during a severe thunderstorm a few days ago.

Watch a massive thunderstorm form in this timelapse

Man, this looks like some end of the world type weather. It's the type of thunderstorm I'd see in a movie and think the CGI was too fake. It's the type of supercell I'd see in real life and think it's all over for everybody. It remind us how small we are, how incredible (and scary!) nature can be and how damn cool it…

Watch An Enormous Supercell Thunderstorm As It Forms Watch An Enormous Supercell Thunderstorm As It Forms

If ever you felt uncertain about the sheer power of thunderstorms, this gorgeous video of a gigantic forming supercell over Wyoming should convince you otherwise.

An incredible view of the Milky Way stretched above a distant monsoon An incredible view of the Milky Way stretched above a distant monsoon

Earth and space combine to create a striking image from photographer Bret Webster. The Milky Way almost looks as though it's come crashing through our atmosphere in a fury of thunder and lightning.

Heaven Opened Above This House Heaven Opened Above This House

Nature is truly awe-inspiring. Clouds clashing in the oncoming storm. A rainbow in the distance. Seriously, how lucky to have taken this shot. [Digg]

Powerful thunderstorms can send bursts of antimatter hurtling into space Powerful thunderstorms can send bursts of antimatter hurtling into space

Antimatter seems impossibly exotic, something that exists only in particle accelerators or in cosmic events many light-years away. But the next time there's a big thunderstorm, look up at the sky: you're looking at the creation of natural antimatter bursts.

Sound Generator Could Kill Humans at Ten Meters Sound Generator Could Kill Humans at Ten Meters

This seems like a harmless tube. In fact, it was harmless: Israeli farmers used the first version to scare birds from crop fields. Then, somebody converted it into a crowd dispersion mechanism. And then, they discovered it could kill.

The BlackBerry Storm Should Launch on Verizon in November The BlackBerry Storm Should Launch on Verizon in November

If you have been wondering when you will finally be able to get your hands on the BlackBerry Storm / Thunder, sources at BGR claim that it has just gone into technical acceptance and it has been delayed internally while the kinks are worked out. All-in-all we are looking at around 6-8 weeks here to get everything…

BlackBerry Storm Has Multiple Personalities: is BlackBerry Thunder BlackBerry Storm Has Multiple Personalities: is BlackBerry Thunder

So after much to-ing and fro-ing, it looks like BlackBerry Storms are BlackBerry Thunders ("...and violets are blue, I'm schizophrenic, and so am I" as a schoolyard song used to go.) The same device will bear two names: Storm for Verizon, Thunder for others like Rogers and Vodafone. It seems like there'll be an 8GB…

Saturn Thunderstorm Would Fry Earth in a Hurry Saturn Thunderstorm Would Fry Earth in a Hurry

When other planets do storms, they do 'em right. The Cassini spacecraft snapped photos of this monster thunderstorm on Saturn that's been raging for five months now, each lightning bolt packing 10,000 times more juice than it's Earthly counterparts. Jupiter's still got the illest storm in the solar system with it's…
