The sky goes dark as an ominous shelf cloud moves over Chicago

On September 21, 2016, in the morning, a terrifying shelf cloud darkened the sky over Chicago, Illinois within seconds.

Independence Day?

Now look at the color of these clouds… Creepy!

A shelf cloud is a low, horizontal wedge-shaped cloud, associated with a thunderstorm gust front – or occasionally with a cold front.

A sharp line cutting away any light…

A rising cloud motion often can be seen in the leading part of the shelf cloud, while the underside often appears turbulent, boiling, and wind-torn.

And the lake is quiet… Just before the boom.

The light is gone:

And the light fades away…

Shelf clouds are low-hanging, horizontal cloud features attached to the front side of lines of storms or even a single storm. Usually there isn’t any persistent rotation on a vertical axis within shelf clouds or within individual cloud fragments that extend downward from the shelf cloud, therefore they are just another scary-looking cloud.

Shelf clouds often resemble snow plows, big waves or tsunamis and can be very scary-looking since they are usually low-hanging. Sometimes they may found only a couple hundred feet above the ground.

WOW! This apocalyptical cloud makes me think of what Judgement Day will be when the Lord comes.

  • Wicked! I can already see certain UFO sites will say it’s a ship. That’s a long one /that’s what she said. Melbourne Australia looks similarly like this everyday. Sunny one minute raining the next.
