A dramatic shelf cloud formed from a line of storms in Brevard County, Florida, on September 2. First, the pileus cap on top of the storm tower glowed in rainbow colors as the sun caught it from behind. Then the shelf appeared. Digital images.

Here's a stitched-together panorama of several images of the shelf cloud as seen from Rockledge, Florida. Click for the larger version. Digital images.

A couple of neighborhood kids were flying kites at the high school ahead of the storm. This is not recommended behavior in a lightning storm, by the way. Digital images.

Here are more shots of the kids flying their kites with the shelf cloud looming as it approached from the west. When the storm arrived, there was heavy rain, wind and lightning. Digital images.
