'Scene Out of Independence Day': Ominous Shelf Cloud Hovers Near the Rocky Mountains

A large shelf cloud was seen hovering over northern Colorado as wind and cloud cover increased across the region on Saturday, February 18.

Video recorded by McShan Walker shows the large multi-layered cloud near the iconic Rocky Mountain National Park.

“It moved very slowly and seemed to change colors slightly in layers,” Walker told Storyful.

“We get lots of wild cloud formations up here, but this looked and felt like a scene out of Independence Day,” he said. Credit: McShan Walker via Storyful
