Remember the opening scene of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when the Dementors pay Harry and Dudley a visit and the sky suddenly blackens and it looks like the world is about to end?
Yeah, well, that pretty much happened in Wyoming on Sunday.
A fledgling low pressure storm that formed downwind of the Rockies rose up like an angry band of pissed off Dementors and enveloped the sky over eastern Wyoming, near Newcastle. Footage of this incredible natural occurrence was captured in a time lapse that will convince you that Mother Nature is not messing around.
Just look at that bad boy!
