Jaw-Dropping pics of an enormous 'supercell' cloud during a storm

It looks like something from the film Independence Day.
But although it may seem like an alien mothership, this incredible picture is actually an impressive thunderstorm cloud known as a supercell.
Windswept dust and rain dominate the storm's centre while rings of jagged clouds surround the edge.
A flimsy tree in the foreground looks like a toy next to the magnificent natural phenomenon. Check out more pics here.
