Watch a massive, other-worldly storm come together in this epic time-lapse video created by storm chasers Basehunters Chasing.

Supercells like this one have a rotating current of rising air, which has earned them the nickname “Motherships.” The storm was seen in Newcastle, Wyo., near the South Dakota border Sunday night.

The soundtrack is an instrumental version of Shakira’s “Empire.”


Basehunters Chasing also tweeted an amazing still shot of the storm:
