Abstract

A time-lapse video showing Cumulonimbus cloud development at sunset. Most of the first Cumulonimbus cloud is obscured by the smaller Cumulus clouds in the foreground. Its anvil is clearly visible. Three further Cumulonimbus clouds cast crepuscular rays from the light of the setting sun. Their anvils merge together. This video has been created from images taken by the NERC MST Radar Facility's Sky-Camera, which is located near Aberystwyth in West Wales. The images are freely available, under an Open (UK) Government License, from http://tinyurl.com/nerc-mstrf-sky-camera/ .
